Additional Information:

  • Applicants that do not fail any portion of the hiring process will be placed on the hiring eligibility list in order of their written exam score. 
  • Applicants who fail the written examination will be ineligible to retest with RFD for six months. 
  • Failing any phase of the hiring process, following the written exam, will make applicants ineligible to apply with RFD two years from the exam date per civil service rules. However, an applicant is allowed to submit written documentation withdrawing from the process at any point prior to failure of any phase. This will allow the applicant to be eligible for reapplication with RFD after six months from the written exam date.
