We have job announcements located in our reception area and on our website for current open positions. The City also advertises open positions through local and regional newspapers. The job announcement contains information on duties, examples of work performed, employment standards, and special qualifications that may be required for the position.
If you find a position you are interested in, the next step is to fill out a job application form. All open positions require a City of Monroe Application and you must be certain your application is received at City Hall by the closing date. You may either come by City Hall to pick up an application, call to request an application be mailed to you, or send an email to the Human Resources Department.
Before any decision is made regarding who should be invited to test, each application is reviewed based upon the requirements of the position. Only those candidates whose experience and training most closely match the City's requirements for the position will be invited to take part in the competitive testing process.
If you are not called in for testing, don't be discouraged, the competition can be tough! If you are called in to test and if you meet the required standards, you will be contacted to schedule an interview. If you do not meet the required standards of the test, you will also be notified, usually by mail. In some cases, applicants selected to interview will go through that process first and then the finalists go on to the testing process.
No. In fact, Human Resources is often not involved in the final selection decision. The City's objective is to hire the best person for the position. Human Resources recruits, screens, and assists with testing applicants based upon the requirements for the position.
Because individual jobs differ, supervisors and managers in the department where the vacancy exists are in a better position to evaluate each candidate's suitability for the particular job. Human Resources may sit in on the interview process, provide feedback to the manager or supervisor and also meet with the final candidate to answer questions pertaining to benefits, policies, culture, etc.
Police are the only Civil Service positions the City has. For more information, please visit National Testing Network. National Testing Network provides a convenient and flexible method for individuals to apply and test for public safety positions such as police officer, deputy sheriff, firefighter, corrections officer, and others.
