Selection Procedures

Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire (Weight: Qualifying):
Applicants will be prompted to complete a minimum qualification supplemental questionnaire as part of the online employment application. It is essential that applicants provide complete information in identifying their education, experience, training and/or licensure, consistent with the information provided on their application. The minimum qualification supplemental questionnaire will be used to evaluate whether applicants meet the minimum qualifications for this position. Applicants must also complete the official application. The information in the minimum qualification supplemental questionnaire will not be scored and is collected for informational purposes.

Management Test Battery: (Weight: 50%)
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.

A passing score must be achieved on the Management Test Battery in order to continue in the selection process.

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.

Supplemental Questionnaire Evaluation: (Weight: 50%)
Candidates who pass the Management Test Battery examination will be sent a supplemental questionnaire to complete and return. Candidates’ responses to the Supplemental Questionnaire will be used to evaluate your experience including the knowledge, skills and abilities that you possess in job related areas identified as critical for successful performance, which may include but are not limited to: knowledge of emergency management principles and practices and federal, state and local mandated requirements; ability to develop, plan, coordinate and implement training programs, exercises and drills; and define and achieve goals and objectives; management ability; analytical ability; human relations ability; and written communication ability.

Candidates must achieve a passing score on both the Management Test Battery and the Supplemental Questionnaire Evaluation in order to be ranked on the eligible list.

CERTIFICATION RULE:
The certification rule for the ranked eligible lists resulting from this examination will be Rule of List. The department may administer additional position-specific selection procedures to make final hiring decisions.

Eligible List/Score Report
A confidential eligible list of applicant names that have passed the civil service examination process will be created, and used for certification purposes only. An examination score report will be established, so applicants can view the ranks, final scores and number of eligible candidates. Applicant information, including names of applicants on the eligible list, shall not be made public unless required by law. However, an eligible list shall be made available for public inspection, upon request, once the eligible list is exhausted or expired and referrals resolved. The eligible list/score report resulting from this civil service examination process is subject to change after adoption (e.g., as a result of appeals), as directed by the Human Resources Director or the Civil Service Commission.

The duration of the eligible list resulting from this examination process will be of 12 months and may be extended with the approval of the Human Resources Director. Upon approval of the Human Resource Director (see Civil Service Rule 111A.26.5), the eligible list/score report resulting from this announcement may be used by other departments that also use this classification or a similar classification. To find other Departments which use this classification, please see https://sfdhr.org/sites/default/files/documents/ASO-Level-Chart.pdf?documentID=21246.

Conviction History

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