Q. How do I know if I qualify for a position?
Answer:The minimum qualifications which you must meet in order to qualify for a position can be found on the Job Bulletin. The Job Bulletin is available at the Personnel Commission office or online under
Job Descriptions. Since the Personnel Commission staff can only screen based on what they are supplied, it is very important that you fill out your application completely. It is very important that you document your educational background and work history on the application. You may submit a resume in addition to your application but will be disqualified if your application is incomplete. Do not attach a resume and state “see resume” in lieu of completing the application in regards to your education and work experience.

Q. How will you communicate with me?
Answer: Communication is either through e-mail or standard postal mail. During the application process, you will be asked to enter your contact information such as your address, telephone number, and e-mail address. It is important to keep all of this information up-to-date. If you need to contact your information, please notify us by calling (626) 933-3920.

Q. If I want to apply for more than one job, do I need to fill out more than one application?
Answer: Yes. You must fill out and submit a different application for each job for which you wish to apply. You must completely fill out each application every time you wish to apply for a job. For example, if you wish to apply for Custodian I and Custodian II you will need to complete two separate applications. Likewise, if you apply for Custodian I but are not offered a position and wish to apply for Custodian I again the next time the recruitment opens, you must completely fill out a new application. This process is the same for both current employees of the district and outside applicants.

We strongly recommend for candidates to complete an online profile which can be setup from our Job Seekers page. If you setup an online profile you will not need to re-enter your educational background and work experience for future applications. If you complete paper applications, you will have to redo this information for each application.
