What is the selection process?

Once the testing process has been completed, the County of Napa Human Resources will establish an Eligibility List and notify you either by email or mail of your status on the Eligibility List.

Candidates who rank in the top six standings on the Eligibility List, are referred on to the County department with the vacancy. You will be notified by the hiring department who will set up the interview. Each department schedules their own interviews and notifies candidates of the results of those interviews.

If you interview with a department and you are offered a position, you may be expected to pass a pre-employment physical, a psychological exam, and a background check before a final offer of employment is made. Prior to employment, applicants will be required to provide proof of identity and authorization to work in the United States. Once hired, you will be required to pass a probationary period of one year, which is the final phase of the selection process.
