What is the status of my application?
A:
Applicants who submit their applications on-line through the City’s website may check the status of their application by logging into their GovernmentJobs.com account (NEOGOV).  Applications submitted on-line receive confirmation of the application receipt immediately.  Applicants who submit materials via fax, mail or e-mail will not receive receipt of application.  After the Final Filing Date, applications are reviewed against minimum qualifications, desirable qualifications, and additional application materials are screened.  Applicants should hear from the City within two weeks of the Final Filing Date.  If a test date has been established and included on the Job Opportunity Announcement, applicants who have not received notification the week prior to the test date are encouraged to contact the Human Resources Department. 
Once I apply online, how do I make a change to my application?
A:
Once you submit your application through NEOGOV, you cannot make any changes to your application materials. However, if you have additional information to submit, you may contact the Human Resources Department to add materials to your application packet.  Additional materials may be submitted via fax, email or mail.
Will an arrest or conviction prevent me from getting hired?
A:

Arrests are not considered during the selection and evaluation process. Convictions are evaluated on a case-by-case basis depending on the date and nature of the conviction and the job duties to be performed.  Please refer to the Civil Service Rules and Regulations Section 2.12 for additional information.

How do I apply for a Leave of Absence?
A:
Employees who are interested in applying for a Leave of Absence are encouraged to contact the Human Resources Department.  Information on vacation requests, unpaid leaves, and job protected leaves (FMLA or CFRA) are available on the City’s intranet under the Employee Corner.  Employees are encouraged to select the Leaves tab to access the appropriate forms.  Submit completed forms to your supervisor and the Human Resources Department.

The Civil Service Rules and Regulations (PDF) provide policy direction on human resources issues based on merit and fitness. The Rules and Regulations were adopted by the Civil Service Commission and approved by City Council to assure appointments, promotions, and disciplinary actions are consistent and in the best interest of the City.

The Employer-Employee Relations Resolution (PDF) provides orderly procedures for the administration of employer-employee relations between the City management and the City's employee organizations and for resolving disputes regarding wages, hours, and other terms and conditions of employment.

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) entitles eligible employees to take up to twelve weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave for specific family and medical reasons.
