The Testing Process
After a recruitment closes, all applications are screened by human resources staff for minimum requirements.
Some positions may require supplemental questions to be completed. The supplemental questions are designed to give all applicants the same opportunity to fully explain their background as it relates to specific duties and to establish a rating format in order to identify the best qualified applicants.
Some positions will require written tests, and generally clerical positions require written, typing and skills tests, which will be provided by the health district.
Only qualified applicants will proceed to an oral board examination and if a passing score is attained, they are placed on an eligibility list for a period of four months. During this time, human resources’ staff will utilize this list to fill positions within that classification.
The names of applicants with top scores or specialized skills will be certified to the various health district divisions for interviews as needed. Once the interviews are completed, human resources’ staff will contact the interviewed candidates with the results.
