Common Questions about the Exam Process

If I am a substitute Assistant Houseparent, do I need to take the exam?

We encourage everyone to take the exam because it gives you the option of becoming permanent if you wish to become a regularly scheduled employee in the near future and a vacancy should arise. If you wish to remain a substitute for the foreseeable future, it is suggested that you take the test, but not required.

Why can’t we be grandfathered in?

San Francisco Civil Service requires that you take a validated exam based on the duties of the classification to become a permanent civil service employee. The goal of the merit system is to make sure all public employees are qualified to do the important work of government. There is no faster or simpler process for getting a permanent position.

What if I am unable to attend the exam date?

If you have an unavoidable circumstance that will physically prevent you from being able to take the exam, please contact City DHR after you have been given an exam appointment. They will let you know your available options. You may or may not be granted an accommodation at City DHR’s discretion, so we strongly encourage you to keep the last two weeks of June open until you receive your exam appointment.

What will be on the exam?

Broadly speaking, civil service exams are designed to test that you have the knowledge, skills, and ability necessary for your first day on the job. If you have been performing the job already for some time, the exam will be testing you on things you already do day-to-day.

When will I know if I passed?

After the exam, DHR will score all of the exams and create the list. You will be notified whether or not you passed the exam and, if you passed, you will also be told what your rank is on the list via an email from DHR.
