Does Human Resources do the selection interviews?
No. In fact, Human Resources is often not involved in the final selection decision. The city's objective is to hire the best person for the position. Human Resources recruits, screens, and tests applicants based upon general requirements for the position in order to create a pool of eligible candidates for consideration. Individual jobs differ, however, and the supervisors or managers in the department where the vacancy actually exists are in a better position to evaluate each candidate's suitability for the particular job.

The supervisor or manager conducting the interview makes the final decision. Based on background checks and verification, a conditional offer of employment is made by the Human Resources Department.
