              Selection Procedures

              Management Test Battery

              Candidates will be invited to participate in a computer-based examination designed to measure competencies in job-related areas which may include but not be limited to: Problem Solving; Leadership; Decision Making; Interpersonal skill; Human Resources Management; Team Building; Communication; Conflict Management and Process Improvement. For more information about this Management Test (and a suggested reading list) please visit: http://www.sfdhr.org/index.aspx?page=343. Please note: this examination is only held in San Francisco. This is a standardized examination and, therefore, test questions and answers are not available for public inspection or review.

              Scores attained on the Management Test Battery 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 take the Management Test Battery. The Management Test Battery may be used for many other classes; therefore your test score may be applied to one or more of these classes if you choose to apply to future recruitments. If the selection process for the future announcement is held within one year of the date of this examination and it includes the Management Test Battery, 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 Management Test Battery. 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 Management Test Battery is used. Please note that, should you re-test, your re-test score would become your official score since it is the most recent.

              Timeline: Online application filing deadline will conclude at 5:00pm on Friday, October 26, 2018.  The selection process will include an evaluation of applications and an assessment of candidates' relative job-related knowledge, skills and abilities.  Only those applicants most closely meeting the needs of the Department will be invited to participate in the interview selection process.  Applicants meeting the minimum qualifications are not guaranteed advancement to the interview. 





              Conviction History

              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.
