Frequently Asked Questions
What Benefits are available?
Do you accept general applications?
No. Applications are accepted for current posted vacancies only. If you are interested in employment in a job classification that is not currently posted, you may complete a job interest card on-line. This job interest card will be emailed to you the next time the job classification is open for recruitment. When you receive the notice, you must complete an on-line employment application at the HR website to be considered for employment.
What is the closing date of the position?
When you open our External Job Openings section, each position will have a closing date or shown as "Continuous".
Will I be contacted for the position?
Only applicants chosen for interview will be contacted. All others will be notified of their status by email or mail as selected when completing the on-line application.
How do I apply On-line?
When visiting the Human Resources website, view the External Job Openings section (click here), and then build a personal account that will become available for access when you choose to apply for an open vacancy. Complete instructions on how to build an account are available for viewing to assist in building the account.
