Note: Falsifying one’s education, training, or work experience or attempted deception on the application may result in disqualification for this and future job opportunities with the City and County of San Francisco.
Written Core Examination (Weight 50%): Candidates who meet the minimum qualifications will be invited to participate in a written, multiple-choice examination, designed to measure their relative knowledge, skills and abilities in job-related areas. The “core” multiple-choice examination component may include, but not be limited to;
• Ability to analyze, evaluate and interpret data and information, including the ability to exercise good judgment when evaluating data and information
• Ability to read, comprehend, interpret and/or apply written information, rules, procedures, regulations, etc.
• Basic knowledge of, and the ability to apply policies, rules, and laws relating to recruitment and hiring processes, Civil Rights Act Title VII, EEO laws, and ADA
• Basic knowledge of, and the ability to apply principles, techniques, procedures and practices relating to job analyses, position classification, valid selection procedures and research, including the ability to perform mathematical calculations associated with these activities
A passing score must be achieved on the Written Core Examination.
This is a standardized examination and, therefore, test questions and test answers are not available for public inspection or review. The examinations may contain additional items for the purpose of pre-testing items. These pre-test items are not scored. Pre-testing allows performance data to be gathered and evaluated before items become scored in an examination. These pre-test items distributed throughout the examination, WILL NOT be counted for or against you in your score, and will not be identified.
Your passing scores for the Written Core Examination will 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 re-take these tests. If the selection process for the future announcement is held within one year of the date of this examination and it includes the core exam 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 the core 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.
For your reference, a Multiple-Choice Test Preparation Manual is available on the DHR website: http://www.sfdhr.org/modules/showdocument.aspx?documentid=18426.
Training and Experience Evaluation (Weight: 50%)
Candidates will be prompted to complete a Supplemental Questionnaire that must be submitted as part of the online employment application process. The Supplemental Questionnaire is designed to measure knowledge, skills and/or abilities in job-related areas.
Candidates must achieve a passing score on both the Written Core Examination and the Training and Experience Evaluation in order to be ranked and placed on the eligible list.
DATE(S) OF EXAMINATION: Only those applicants meeting the Minimum Qualifications will be notified of the exact date, time and place to report to the examination.

As a finalist 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 finalist. 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 selected as a finalist, the hiring department will contact you to schedule a fingerprinting appointment.
