What is the testing process for a civilian position?

The testing process may be different for civilian positions. Each recruitment job bulletin will indicate the testing process for the open recruitment.

If your application is accepted, you will be notified via the email address provided on your application of the confirmed date and location prior to the scheduled examinations. Notification for each phase of the recruitment process will be by email. Please contact the Placer County Human Resources Department at 530-889-4060 with any email address changes for all applications submitted.
