How Do I...?

Personnel Office

Applications remain on file for two years; however, if the City re-advertises for the same position during the two year period, only the new applications received will be considered.

No. You must submit an application for each posting that you are interested in.

No. Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we ask that you do not call, e-mail, or stop in to check on the status of your application.  We work diligently to fill vacancies.  We assume all applicants remain interested in the position applied for unless we are notified otherwise.

In most cases, resumes are not required to be submitted with your employment application. If required, it will be specifically stated in the ad.  Resumes, however, can be voluntarily submitted with a completed application. Do not substitute any part of the application form with the words “SEE RESUME”.

Once the closing date has passed, applications will not be accepted or considered.

If your qualifications match our needs, or to determine such, applicants may also be required to satisfactorily complete:

  • Job appropriate testing
  • Interview(s)
  • Criminal history check
  • Driving record check
  • Credit check
  • Reference checks
  • Previous employment verifications

The only residency requirement is for the Director of Public Service and Safety, who must be a resident of the City within six months of employment, unless waived by Council.

No, unfortunately the City of St. Marys is unable to accept applications for positions that are not currently open.

Yes, you can update your application once it has been submitted by emailing the additional information to the Personnel Office or calling or bringing the information in to the office.
