Step 2: Click the "Apply" link and follow the instructions for filling out and submitting an online application.

Make sure that all fields on the application are filled out and all necessary documentation is attached and submitted. Applications that do not include all requested information may be dismissed as an incomplete application and not be considered for the job.

What is the difference between “Open” and “Promotional” Recruitments?

An Open recruitment is open to all candidates, whereas a Promotional recruitment is open to current hourly and full-time City of Pico Rivera employees who are not in their probationary period.

Can I submit a resume in lieu of a City job application?

No, a completed job application must be submitted to be considered for a job opening.  A resume may be attached to a job application as a way to provide more information about your qualifications.

I am interested in a position that is not open at this time. How do I proceed?

If you are interested in a job that is not currently being recruited for, fill out an online job interest card by clicking on the class specification title and then on the 'Notify me when this position becomes available' link.

What is the process for reviewing job applications?

Once the recruitment period for a job opening is closed, Human Resources staff members review each application to ensure the application is completely filled out and that the applicant meets the minimum qualifications. Answers to any Supplemental Questions and all Supporting Documentation are also reviewed. Those applicants who fulfill the requirements of the job based on the information contained in the application will be invited to participate in the testing process.

What is an eligibility list?

An eligibility list is a list of applicants that passed the testing process for a position and are eligible to be hired for that position. Usually, these lists have an expiration date.

What happens after a candidate is placed on the eligibility list?

Candidates on the eligibility list may be called for one or more interviews with the hiring department.

How will I be notified of the status of my application and how long before I am notified?

We will contact you via email, usually 2 to 3 weeks after the closing date of the recruitment.
