The Use of Testing
Testing is the foundation of the City's hiring process, and it allows each candidate to demonstrate basic knowledge, skills, and abilities that are required to perform the job. Applicants will be notified of each step in the selection process if it has been determined to consider them further. Notification will include the date, time, and location of the exam; the type of examination; and a contact person for questions prior to the exam.

Some job classifications may have a single exam. Others may have two or more different testing phases. If there is more than one test phase, candidates must pass one exam before moving on to the next exam. Overall results are based on the weighted scores of the different test phases. Generally, the weighting is listed on the job announcement.
