We test every year for a hiring pool that we will select qualified applicants out of for the following year. You will receive a letter, usually in mid-summer, to let you know when we will begin our testing.

Step 2: Is completion of a written test. The written test will evaluate your reading comprehension skills. Test preparation manuals are available to pick up at the human resources office.

After this step, you will be ranked by a point system, and we will hire from this pool for the next year. You will not know the order in which you are ranked. If you are not selected and hired from the testing pool the next year, you will have to re-apply during the next testing process.
