FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

What is the civil service system and how does it apply to City employment?

Approximately 80% of City positions are classified as civil service positions. This means that individuals are hired only by passing job-related employment exams and, following a competitive process, a selection is made from among the eligible candidates that have passed the exam. Separate exams are given for each job classification. The City conducts exams for approximately 30 to 40 classifications per year.

Where and how can I apply for a City job?

Applications for City positions are accepted in the Personnel Department located on the third floor of City Hall. Applications are accepted only for two to three weeks at a time and are only accepted for currently posted positions. Job postings are available in the Personnel Department and are circulated to various local public agencies and educational institutions. Vacancies are also advertised in the Sunday edition of the Springfield News-Sun. Job openings and the standard City employment application form can be downloaded from this page.
