Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire (Weight: Qualifying): Candidates will be prompted to complete a Supplemental Questionnaire as part of the online employment application. This Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire is designed to obtain specific information regarding an applicant's experience in relation to the Minimum Qualifications for this position. Applicants must also complete the official application. It is essential that applicants provide complete information in identifying their education, experience and training. The Minimum Qualification Supplemental Questionnaire will be used to evaluate if the applicant possesses the required minimum qualifications.
Supplemental Questionnaire (Weight: 30%): Applicants will be prompted to complete a Supplemental Questionnaire that must be submitted during the on-line application process. There are three (3) questions. The Supplemental Questionnaire has been designed to measure knowledge, skills and/or abilities in job-related areas which may include, but not be limited to: Knowledge of the development and evaluation of important administrative/management systems, functions, policy and procedures concerning community and multi-agency partnerships; how to conduct complex and comprehensive analyses of outcomes or policies relating to education, health or social services impacting children, youth and families; data management and/or data warehousing systems and development. Ability to effectively prioritize and organize multiple assignments and projects and exercise sound judgment; and supervise. Written and Oral Communication Ability. Human Relations Ability.
Written Multiple-Choice Examination (Weight: 30%): Candidates 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 evaluate/analyze information/data and to exercise good judgment relative to that evaluation or analysis
• Knowledge of, and ability to apply, financial/fiscal principles (including the ability to use mathematical and statistical formulas)
• Ability to use various computer software programs.
Supervisory Test Battery (Weight: 40%): Candidates who attain a minimum passing score on the written examination component 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. For more information about this Supervisory Test (and a suggested reading list) please visit: http://www.sfdhr.org/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=11676
The above test components are considered standardized and, therefore, test questions and answers are not available for public inspection or review.
Candidates may receive two or more scores in association with the above selection components. One or more will correspond to the core component of the multiple-choice exam component (i.e., core examination and/or one or more specialty areas). Those candidates who participate in the Supervisory Test Battery, will attain an additional score. Any scores attained on each of these components 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 any test components for which you have already attained a score. Your score on the Core Exam is not valid for any other classifications in the Admin Analyst Series. You cannot apply a score from the Core exam used for 1820, 1822, or 1823, as it is a different test.
The Supervisory Test Battery may be used for many other classes, therefore your test score may be applied to other 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 any of these components (i.e., core exam, specialty subtest(s) and/or supervisory test battery), your score(s) for the corresponding test component(s) will be automatically applied to that announcement. However, after one year, you have the option to either (a) apply your test score(s) to the other announcement or (b) re-take the test component(s). 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 test component (core, specialty subtest or supervisory 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.
Only candidates who achieve passing scores on the Written Multiple-choice Core Examination and Supervisory Test Battery will have their Supplemental Questionnaire rated and will continue in the selection process. Candidates will be placed on the score report / eligible list in rank order according to their final score. The hiring department may administer additional position-specific selection procedures to make final hiring decisions.
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.
