Selection Procedures

Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire (Weight: Qualifying)
Candidates will be prompted to complete a Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire (MQSQ) as part of the online employment application. This Supplemental Questionnaire is designed to obtain specific information regarding an applicant's experience in relation to the Minimum Qualifications for this position. Applicants must also complete the official application. It is essential that applicants provide complete information in identifying their education, experience and training. The Supplemental Questionnaire will be used to evaluate if the applicant possesses the required minimum qualifications.

Basic Supervisory Exam (Weight: 30%)

Candidates will be administered a written multiple-choice examination that includes test items that relate to various supervisory practices and procedures (e.g., directing subordinates, delegating tasks to subordinates, providing customer service, demonstrating appropriate supervisory/leadership behavior, addressing and/or evaluating subordinate issues, behavior and performance, etc.) and well as reading comprehension items.

This is a standardized examination and, therefore, test questions and test answers are not available for public inspection or review.

The score you achieve on this examination shall 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 this test again should you apply and be found eligible for a future announcement for which this particular test is used. Please note this test is used for other supervisory classes therefore your test score may be applied to one or more of these classes if you choose to apply to future recruitments. If the test for this future announcement is held within one year of the date of this examination, your score will be automatically applied to that announcement. However, after one year, you have the option to either (a) apply your test score to the other announcement or (b) re-take the test. 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 this test is used. Please note that, should you re-test, your re-test score would become your official score since it is the most recent.

Date of Examination: Only applicants meeting the Minimum Qualifications will be notified of the exact date, time and place to report to the examination.

Oral Examination (Weight: 70%)

The applicants who pass the Basic Supervisory Examination will be invited to participate in an oral exam to determine their relative knowledge, skills, and abilities in job-related areas for the 7239 classification which may include, but are not limited to: knowledge of the practices, principles and local codes applicable to plumbing work; qualities, adaptability and uses of plumbing materials; design, construction, installation, maintenance and repair of hot and cold water, sanitary, drainage, heating, gas and other plumbing systems; ability to analyze and interpret blueprints, working drawings, sketches and specifications; make estimates of labor, materials; plan, lay out, direct and supervise the work of subordinates.

Eligible List/Score Report:

A confidential eligible list of applicant names that have passed the civil service examination process will be created, and used for certification purposes only. An examination score report will be established, so applicants can view the ranks, final scores and number of eligible candidates. Applicant information, including names of applicants on the eligible list, shall not be made public unless required by law. However, an eligible list shall be made available for public inspection, upon request, once the eligible list is exhausted or expired and referrals resolved. The eligible list/score report resulting from this civil service examination process is subject to change after adoption (e.g., as a result of appeals), as directed by the Human Resources Director or the Civil Service Commission.  

The duration of the eligible list resulting from this examination process will be 6 months, and may be extended with the approval of the Human Resources Director.  

Upon approval of the Human Resource Director (see Civil Service Rule 111A.26.5), the eligible list/score report resulting from this announcement may be used by other departments that also use this classification or a similar classification. To find other Departments which use this classification, please see https://sfdhr.org/sites/default/files/documents/ASO-Level-Chart.pdf?documentID=21246.

Additional selection processes may be conducted by the hiring department prior to making final hiring decisions. Applicants who meet the minimum qualifications are not guaranteed to advance through all of the steps in the selection process.

Conviction History

As a selected candidate for a job, 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 are a selected candidate. 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.

If you are a selected candidate, the hiring department will contact you to schedule a fingerprinting appointment.
