​Hiring Process
Hiring Process Photo

​The hiring process from start (the posting goes online) to finish (a candidate is selected) takes approximately 50 days.

Job Interview
Interviews are frequently conducted by panels of County employees. Panels frequently, but not always, include the hiring managers. As time of the panel interview, you will be required to present all documents necessary to support that you meet all of the position's requirements as indicated in your application. Additional interviews may be scheduled at the department's discretion.

After reviewing all candidates interviewed and confirming that all minimum requirements have been met, the Human Resources department may make a conditional job offer to the person or persons selected. Once the conditional offer is accepted, the hiring process begins.

If you were interviewed but not selected for the position you will be notified by email of this outcome. If you applied for the position but have not been contacted for an interview, the position has closed and another candidate was chosen. We encourage you to continue to apply.

All employment offers are contingent upon verification of identity and eligibility to work in the United States, as required by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and upon successful completion of our pre-employment requirements, including (but not limited to):

  • Drug testing
  • Background checks
  • Reference checks 
  • Verification of employment
  • Verification of education 
  • Verification of required licenses, certifications and/or credentials
