Getting Started

  • Create your account.
  • Ensure you have access to the email account used so we can contact you OR you can reset your password (in case you forget it!)
  • Ensure your name is entered correctly in the right order, spelled correctly, and with proper capitalization- attention to detail matters when a hiring manager is screening.
  • Review open positions and hit the “apply now” button in the top right corner on positions that suit your interests and skill sets.
  • Upload supporting documents, such as a resume and cover letter, at the bottom of the Personal Information tab in your account.

Screening & Interviewing

  • Once the position closes, the hiring manager or HR will screen the applications- evaluating each candidate’s application as it relates to the criteria in the posting.
  • Keep in mind the screening process can sometimes take several weeks depending on the number of applicants received and the hiring team’s workload.
  • Our system does not serve as a dashboard for the status of your application – only the top-qualified candidates will be contacted.

Reference Checks and Job Offer

  • The top candidate will be expected to provide contact information for two professional references.
  • Upon receipt of successful reference checks, Human Resources will reach out to the top candidate with a conditional offer of employment.
  • Any conditions of employment (such as pre-employment background check or DMV record check) will be shared during the offer process.


  • An offer letter and pre-employment condition information is sent via email along with first-day reporting instructions.
  • New employee orientation for full-time and permanent part-time employees is held at our Training Center, 7701 E. Parham Road, from 8:00 to 12:00 p.m.
  • Onboarding for hourly employees is scheduled by appointment with HR.


The County seeks to hire the best-qualified applicants available for each position vacancy, without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions (including lactation), age, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or military status, status as an organ donor, or any other characteristic protected by law (except where such is a bona fide occupational qualification).
