The State of California is an equal employment opportunity employer. The State of California will not deny a prospective employee (or current employee) an opportunity to compete in an open (or promotional) examination or cause a prospective employee to be subject to harassment because of race, color, religion, ancestry, sex, national origin, marital status, age, disability, sexual orientation, or political affiliation.

It is an objective of the State of California to achieve a drug-free state workplace. Any applicant for State employment will be expected to behave in accordance with this objective, because the use of illegal drugs is inconsistent with the law of the State, the rules governing civil service, and the special trust placed in public servants.

General Qualifications: Candidates must possess essential personal qualifications including integrity, initiative, dependability, good judgment, and ability to work cooperatively with others; and a state of health consistent with the ability to perform the assigned duties of the class. A medical examination may be required. In open examinations, investigation may be made of employment records and personal history, and fingerprinting may be required.

If you meet the requirements on the examination bulletin, you may take this competitive examination. Possession of the entrance requirements does not assure a place on the eligible list. Your performance in the required examination will be compared with the performance of the others who take the test.

Successful candidates may be called by a Department for a hiring interview. These interviews are normally conducted at the location of employment in California. The State of California does not reimburse applicants for any expenses incurred in taking a State examination or participating in a hiring interview.
