The Selection Process:

of several exams to rank applicants. The following are not exclusive,
but are the most commonly used.
- Application Screening for employment standards.
- Supplemental Questionnaires require you to detail job-related experience
and education in an essay format which is submitted in conjunction with
your application. The questionnaire may be used to screen for the most
highly qualified individuals who are then tested further.
- Written Exams, which may include multiple-choice, true-false, or matching
questions, are designed to rate your knowledge related to the job.
- Performance Exams assess your ability to perform the necessary physical
and/or psychomotor skills of the job. Such exams may be administered
on a pass/fail basis to determine minimum skill levels.
- Oral Exams involve two or more subject matter experts as raters who
use a standardized and structured format in rating your knowledge and
ability to perform the job.
Applicants with Disabilities:
Human Resources will make reasonable efforts in the examination process
to accommodate applicants with disabilities. Please contact us at the
time of application so that testing arrangements can be made.
The Superior Court makes its hiring decision based in part
on interviews with the top applicants. If you are invited to a hiring
interview but subsequently are not selected for the job, Human Resources
will notify you of that fact.
If the Superior Court offers you a job it will be contingent upon passing
a reference check and/or background investigation, and a medical examination.
When you start the job you must show proof of your legal right to work
in the United States.
