|Q||After my application is submitted, when am I notified?|
|A||When a posted position closes, applications are forwarded to the City division where the job opening exists. The division will review the applications and schedule interviews and/or testing. Only applicants who are to be interviewed will be notified. This process can take up to six weeks after the closing date. The successful applicant will be notified that he or she has been selected for the position.|
