Note: applying to the Police Department is a separate process
Step 1: Application received via governmentjobs.com and screened personally by HR for minimum qualifications
Step 2: Hiring Manager review
Step 3: May include an initial screening interview before the final interview
Step 4: Final candidate receives an offer
Step 5: Background and reference check (and drug screen if in safety-sensitive position, some positions may require a physical)
Step 6: Final offer
This process can take up to 8 weeks. Jobs are generally posted for about two weeks; it takes at least another week to screen applicants, and then the above-mentioned process can take another 4-5 weeks. We try to move the process along as quickly as we can.
Tips for Applying
You must use the governmentjobs.com portal to apply; this will require you to set up an account (you can use this for any state/local government job you apply for).
Read the job description to make sure you meet the minimum qualifications.
Understand the pay range-we cannot offer you a salary that exceeds the stated range.
Check your spelling and capitalization – pay attention to detail.
We appreciate candidates who have done some initial research on Wheat Ridge.
Please be kind to our staff-we do take this into consideration.
