What to Expect After You Apply

Initial Screening
Your application will be screened to determine if you meet the minimum qualifications for the job you are applying for. You will be notified of the results in writing via email or postal mail, generally within 4 to 6 weeks.

Examination
If your application is accepted, you will be scheduled for any required examinations. Examinations are administered in the County of Maui only. You must qualify on all required examinations to be eligible for employment. You will be notified of your results in writing via email or postal mail, generally within 1 to 2 weeks of taking the test.

Eligibility List
If you successfully qualify on all required examinations, your name will be placed on a list of persons eligible for hiring consideration for that job. This "eligible list" may be used to fill any current vacancies, and any vacancies that occur during the life of the list (typically one year.)

Department Screening
If your name is selected from the eligible list to be considered for a specific opening, you will be contacted by the hiring department, and will be required to go through that department's screening process.
