Hiring Process

Thank you for visiting our web page. This section will assist you in applying for jobs with the City. Please note that the City accepts online job applications for open recruitments only. Application materials are reviewed for relevant education, training and experience. Those applicants best meeting the City's needs will be invited to participate in a selection process which may include a written exam, performance exam, oral board interview and/or other selection processes. Depending upon the applicant pool, all applicants meeting the minimum qualifications will not necessarily be selected to participate in the hiring process. Applicants deemed as “most qualified” are based upon a competitive evaluation of information provided on the application.

For additional information regarding completing an online application, please refer to the Online Employment Application Guide for step-by-step instructions.
Application: Prior to submitting a completed job application, be sure to read the respective job annoucement for further instructions. Some recruitments may require additional information such as a designated supplemental questionnaire or a typing certificate. Incomplete applications will result in disqualification. False statements are cause for rejection of application, removal of name from eligibility list, or dismissal from employment. Resumes & hard copy applications are not accepted in lieu of an online City application.
Applicant Notices: Applicants will receive all correspondence via e-mail. If you have a change of e-mail address, address, or phone number, please ensure the information is updated using our online system.
Eligibility List: Candidates who successfully complete all phases of the selection process will be placed on an eligibility list. Current and future vacancies are filled from these lists. Lists typically last 12 months but may be extended or cancelled based upon the needs of the City.
Fingerprinting: All potential employees are required to pass a background check conducted via fingerprint checks through the Department of Justice. A full disclosure of convictions is to the applicant’s advantage and a criminal record does not constitute automatic disqualification from employment unless there is business justification. Factors such as age of the crime, the candidate’s age at the time, nature and gravity of the act, and the nature of the job and the relationship between the crime(s) and the job. Any conviction or court records which are exempt by a valid court order do not have to be included in addition to convictions of Health and Safety Code Sections, 11357, 11360, 11364, or 11365 (marijuana offenses) if the conviction occurred prior to January 1, 1976.
Typing Certificates: If applicable, scan and submit the typing certificate as an attachment to the online application or mail the certificate within one week of submitting an online application. Save your original certificate. Typing Cert Requirementspdf icon
Degree Verification: If applicable, official degree verification will be conducted prior to receiving an offer of employment.
Driver Licenses: If applicable, an applicant’s driver’s license record review will be conducted prior to receiving a final offer of employment. Positions that require driving as a job duty must submit a Driver License Record from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) during the selection process. Applicants will be notified when to submit the record request.
Department of Transportation (DOT): Positions requiring a Class A or Class B driver's license perform safety sensitive duties and are, therefore, subject to the City's random alcohol and controlled substance testing program in accordance with Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations. The DOT requires alcohol and controlled substance testing information related to a random DOT drug-testing program from a previous employer for the two years preceding employment with the City of Pomona.
Medical Requirements: A medical examination is required of anyone appointed to a position. Failure to pass any phase including medical, psychological or background examination may be cause for rejection or for removal from the eligiblity list.

Note: The City of Pomona recognizes that its future depends on the health and safety of all employees. The misuse and abuse of drugs and alcohol poses a serious threat to all Pomona employees and citizens. To provide safeguards to employees and citizens, all prospective new hires will be tested for substance use.
Verfication of Right to Work: Successful candidates shall be required to complete a verification form designated by the Department of Homeland Security, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services that certifies they are eligible for employment in the United States of America.
Loyalty Oath: All City employees are required to sign a loyalty oath in accordance with California Government Code Section 3100 upon employment.
Equal Opportunity Employer: The City of Pomona is an Equal Opportunity Employer. The City does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, age, ancestry, national origin, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, disability, or protected rights exercised. Equal employment opportunity will apply to all personnel actions, including, but not limited to, recruitment, selection, training, transfers, promotions, evaluation, compensation, discipline, layoffs, terminations, rehires, other terms of employment.
Americans with Disabilities Act: An applicant requiring reasonable accommodation during the application and selection process due to a qualified disability must inform the Human Resources Department at 909-620-2291 in advance (prior to the closing date of the recruitment).
