How will I know if I'm selected for a job?

Once the interview process is complete, the Department contacts Human Resources with a list of the top applicants. Applicants will then receive an email letting them know the status of selection. Since Human Resources completes all background checking and driving records prior to notification of the applicants, the timeframe for notification can be a week or more after the interview process.

Pre-Employment Drug Test

When all information is completed, the selected applicant is contacted and conditionally offered the position, and a date is set to begin employment with the City of Abilene upon satisfactory results from the pre-employment drug test.
