How to complete and submit an application?

Once you have reviewed the job announcement and you are ready to complete a Placer County Superior Court job application you should:

  1. Read and follow the online instructions carefully.
  2. Indicate the position you are applying for.
  3. Include as much information in your application as necessary to demonstrate how you meet the minimum qualifications as stated on the job announcement. The position(s) you are applying for may require specific licenses or certifications, college course work or experience that demonstrates knowledge, skills and abilities in specific areas.
  4. Include all experience when completing your application, including paid and volunteer job-related experience.
  5. List all special training and/or classes you have taken.

A Placer County Superior Court employment application must be submitted for each position for which you are applying. A resume or an application from another entity will not be accepted in place of our application. Attach all required forms listed on the job announcement, such as copies of certificates, resumes, work samples, supplemental questionnaires, etc.

The Placer County Human Resources Department must receive your completed application packet with any/all supplemental materials no later than posted final filing date and time. Continuous recruitments may close at any time.

Meeting the minimum qualifications

The Human Resources Department will screen your submitted application materials to determine if you meet the minimum qualifications for the position. It is your responsibility to identify in your application materials how you meet the minimum qualifications stated in the job announcement. If it is determined that you have met the minimum qualifications, you will be invited to participate in a competitive examination process. The type of exam will be defined on the job announcement. Examinations may include a written exam, oral exam or a training and experience rating. Please contact the Human Resources Department at least 5 working days before a scheduled examination if you require accommodation in the examination process. Medical disability verification may be required prior to accommodation.

Being placed on an Eligible List

Eligible Lists include the names of all candidates successfully passing an examination. Names are placed on the Eligible List in order of rank with number one being the highest rank. Eligible Lists usually remain in effect for a minimum of six months and may be extended up to one year. Eligible Lists are generally used to fill both Extra Help/Limited Term and Regular positions.

How to prepare and interview for a position

The hiring department will select people to interview from the Certified Eligible List. The hiring unit will contact you if you are selected for an interview. If you are contacted for an interview, please notify the unit, prior to the interview, if you require accommodation in the interview process.

Dress appropriately for an interview, look your best and review your submitted application materials and the job announcement. Be prepared to discuss how your work experience and/or training relate to the position for which you are interviewing and also be prepared to discuss your career interests and goals.

During the interview, listen carefully to the questions being asked and provide all the necessary information to the interviewer in order for him/her to accurately assess your qualifications.

If you are unable to attend an interview, be sure to contact the interviewing unit. Failure to contact the unit could result in the removal of your name from the Eligible List.

Applicants with Disabilities

The court provides reasonable accommodation to applicants with disabilities where appropriate. If you think you may need a reasonable accommodation for any part of the application and hiring process, please contact us in advance.

Offers of Employment

Once the offer of employment has been made to you, you will be required to be finger printed for a criminal history background check and submit to a drug screening. Information discovered through such a background check or drug screening may become grounds for the conditional job offer to be rescinded or dismissal from employment. Convictions, depending upon the type, number and date, may be disqualifying. False statements or omission of facts regarding background or employment history may result in disqualification or dismissal.

When you start the job you must show proof of your legal right to work in the United States. Most non-management positions will serve a probationary period. The probation period is the final phase of the examination process.

Equal Employment Opportunity Employer

Placer County Superior Court is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer. The Court does not discriminate based on sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, color, ancestry, religious creed, national origin, physical disability (including HIV and AIDS), mental disability, medical condition (cancer), age (over 40), or marital status.
