Retesting is permitted no sooner than six months from the date of the examination and only in association with your eligibility for another announcement for which this test is used.

POST REFERRAL PROCESS
Oral/Performance Test Selection Process (Weight: Pass/Fail): For custodian positions with the special condition requiring the ability to learn to operate heavy custodial equipment (this includes all 2708 positions at the San Francisco International Airport and potentially some 2708 in other City departments), candidates on the eligible list must also pass an oral/performance test designed to assess the ability to learn to operate large cleaning equipment used in institutional settings, including but not limited to, ride-on auto scrubbers, walk-behind high speed burnishers, ride-on burnishers, truck-mounted hot water pressure systems, ride-on sweeper/vacuum and articulating aerial lifts to perform custodial services.
The oral/performance test will be administered on a Pass/Fail basis. Candidates who pass the oral/performance test will be considered for employment by the San Francisco International Airport and potentially some 2708 in other City departments which have positions with the special condition requiring the ability to learn to operate heavy custodial equipment. Passing candidates will be considered for employment in accordance with their rank on the eligible list as well as the certification rule. Candidates who fail the oral/performance test will not be considered for positions with the special condition requiring the ability to learn to operate heavy custodial equipment for the entire duration of their eligibility on the eligible list. These candidates will however, remain eligible for consideration (in accordance with their rank on the eligible list as well as the certification rule) for 2708 positions which do not require special condition requiring the ability to learn to operate heavy custodial equipment.
Candidates applying for positions with the Unified School District and the Community College District may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under the California Education Code.
