No. If it isn’t stated clearly what open position is being applied for, the application is not retained.

Postings can be removed at any time. Only Patrol Officer and Firefighter postings will have a close date. The length of time required to fill a position can range from several weeks to several months.
If you are not contacted for an interview, the posting has either been cancelled or another applicant has been hired. As Human Resources does not schedule interviews, and due to the volume of applications we receive, we are not able to tell you the status of your application.

Please click on the icons on the Employment main page.
- Does my application stay on file for further postings?
No, you will be required to complete another application for any position that you are qualified for.
- Who makes the decision on which applicants are interviewed?
Human Resources only screens the applications for those meeting the required qualifications, those applications are then sent on to the hiring authority. Possession of the required qualifications does not ensure further consideration. It is the hiring department that determines whose qualifications best meet the needs of the job. The Human Resources department cannot answer any questions regarding your application status during the selection process.
- What if I have been in trouble with the law in my past?
A criminal record will not necessarily disqualify you from employment. Each instance is evaluated on a case-by-case basis and is considered in relationship to the position sought, the severity of the offense, when the offense took place, etc. Any false statement or omission of any information shall result in the applicant being disqualified.
