What is the civil service system and how does it apply to City employment?

Approximately 80% of City positions are classified as civil service positions. This means that individuals are hired only by passing job-related employment exams and, following a competitive process, a selection is made from among the eligible candidates that have passed the exam. Separate exams are given for each job classification. The City conducts exams for approximately 30 to 40 classifications per year.
