Written Core Exam (Weight: 70%)

• Ability to evaluate/analyze information/data and to exercise good judgment relative to that evaluation or analysis;
• Ability to communicate written information (includes ability to proofread);
• Knowledge of, and ability to apply, financial/fiscal principles (including the ability to use mathematical and statistical formulas);

• Ability to establish and maintain cooperative and effective working relationships;
• Knowledge of, and the ability to apply, principles, practices and procedures involving office operations;

You will receive one or more scores with respect to the multiple-choice exam component. One will correspond to the core test component and, should any specialty subtests be added to that component, you may receive one or more additional “specialty” scores. Any scores attained on these components will be valid and 'banked' for three years, starting from the date of the examination. This means that, during this three-year time period, you will not be required to take any test components for which you have already attained a score. This core test is also used for 1820 Junior Administrative Analyst, 1822 Administrative Analyst and 1823 Senior Administrative Analyst therefore your test scores may be applied to one or more of these classes if you choose to apply to future recruitments.
This is not the same exam that is used for 1824 Principal Administrative Analyst, as such your scores on this exam are not applied to any 1824 recruitments, and your scores from the 1824 exam cannot be applied to this recruitment.
If the selection process for the future announcement is held within one year of the date of this examination and it includes any of these components [i.e., core exam or specialty subtest(s)], your score(s) for the corresponding test component(s) will be automatically applied to that announcement. However, after one year, you have the option to either (a) apply your test score(s) to the other announcement or (b) re-take the test component(s). Re-testing is permitted no sooner than one year from the date of the examination and only in association with your eligibility for another announcement for which the test component (core or specialty subtest) is used. Please note that, should you re-test, your re-test score would become your official score since it is the most recent.
Qualified applicants will be notified by email of the exact time, date, and location of the examination.
A passing score must be achieved on the Written Core Examination in order to continue in the selection process.
Training and Experience Evaluation: (Weight: 30%)

If you receive a conditional offer of employment, you will be fingerprinted, and your fingerprints will be sent to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The resulting report of your conviction history (if any) will be used to determine whether the nature of your conviction (or arrest, in limited circumstances) conflicts with the specific duties and responsibilities of the job for which you were given a conditional offer of employment. If a conflict exists, you will be asked to present any evidence of rehabilitation that may mitigate the conflict, except when federal or state regulations bar employment in specific circumstances, such as:
- Candidates 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.
- Candidates for positions with the Recreation and Park Department may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under California Public Resources Code 5164.
Having a conviction history does not automatically preclude you from a job with the City.
