Selection Procedures

Minimum Qualifications Supplemental Questionnaire (MQSQ - Qualifying)

Applicants will be prompted to complete a Minimum Qualifications Supplemental Questionnaire as part of the online application process. All applicants must complete the Minimum Qualifications Supplemental Questionnaire and it must be submitted with the application by the final filing deadline. The information provided on the Minimum Qualifications Supplemental Questionnaire must be consistent with the information on the application and is subject to verification. Applicant responses to the Minimum Qualifications Supplemental Questionnaire will be used to assist in determining if applicants meet the minimum qualifications for the position.

Only those candidates who most closely meet the needs of the Department will be invited to continue in the selection process.  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.
