Depending on the position, you may be required to complete an online assessment or test. If this is the case, you will receive an email with instructions on how to access and complete the assessment immediately after you apply. In some cases, you may be required to complete an in-person test. You will be contacted with further information after we review your application. To learn more, please visit our Assessments page.
Our goal is to hire the best talent into the city, so we identify the best-qualified candidates within the applicant pool that fit our ideal candidate profile. Those candidates are sent to the hiring manager for review. The hiring manager decides who to interview. You will find the ideal candidate profile in the "About You" section of the job posting.
We cannot move you forward if you do not meet the required minimum qualifications as defined in our job classifications. You will also find these listed in the "About You" section of the job posting.
We conduct interviews by phone, by video conference and in person in order to accommodate candidates. In-person interviews can be one-on-one or with a panel of multiple individuals. You should expect more than one round of interviews where you will speak with the hiring manager, potential colleagues and a member of department/agency leadership.
We will share the details with you in advance so you know what to expect and how to prepare.
After the interviews the hiring manager decides whom to offer the job. The hiring manager or recruiter will reach out directly with a verbal offer. This is a great opportunity for you to ask any additional questions you may have before accepting the offer. After you accept the verbal offer we prepare and send an offer letter. You will need to sign in to your Workday account (the same hiring system you used to apply to the position) to review the offer letter and officially select Accept or Don’t Accept. Once you accept the written offer, the city will begin pre-employment screening.
Before your first day we will reach out to guide you through the onboarding process which includes required new hire tasks to ensure you have an efficient start to your employment. On your first day your supervisor and new team will have a plan to help welcome you into your new role, your department/agency and the City and County of Denver.
Some positions require you to complete at least a six month probationary period. Probation is a test period of time following employment where you are employed on a trial basis. As a new employee, you are required to complete certain courses during the probationary period. The requirements vary depending on whether you are a supervisor or not. For more information about required coursework for probation, please visit our New Employee Toolkit and Required Courses webpages.
You can review the status of your application at any time by logging into your Workday account. We will also communicate with you via email so please check your inbox frequently. If you are not selected, you will be notified.
