      THE EMPLOYMENT PROCESS

      As a potential applicant for employment, you are about to participate in a

      series of events collectively called the employment process. Because the
      goal of the employment process is to obtain qualified candidates to fill
      City positions, examinations are generally administered to each
      applicant. These examinations are conducted in a variety of ways, yet
      they
      share a common purpose--to test applicants for knowledge, skills, and
      abilities required to perform the duties and responsibilities of the job.

      The employment process occurs in several stages which are described below:

      Application. Prospective employees must submit an application and other
      documents required as specified in the examination announcement by 5 p.m.
      on the final filing date for any scheduled examination. Final filing
      dates
      vary for different jobs and are listed on the front of each examination
      announcement. Separate applications must be submitted for each job title.

      Examination. Applicants who meet the qualification standards on or before

      the posted final filing date are notified to take an examination or
      combination of examinations as indicated on the examination
      announcement. Examination scores determine standing on eligible lists.

      Eligible Lists. Eligible lists contain names, in descending order of
      scores, of applicants who have obtained passing scores in the examination
      process. Open eligible lists (not limited to City employees) are valid
      for
      a maximum of three years. Separate eligible lists are established for
      each
      job title.

      Selection. Pursuant to Civil Service Regulations, most vacancies may be
      filled from among the top seven candidates on the appropriate eligible
      list.

      Medical Examination. Certain positions may require a pre-employment
      medical examination, including laboratory testing, drug screening and/or
      psychological examination. This examination will be administered by a
      City
      physician. Candidates are cautioned not to quit or give notice to present

      employers until the medical examination if required, has been completed
      and
      passed.

      Appointment. All new employees are required to sign various forms as
      related to City employment. At this time candidates are also
      fingerprinted

      documentation required by the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.
