Application Procedures

Positions will be posted for at least five (5) New Mexico Department of Labor working days and may be closed at any time thereafter.  The Human Resources Department bulletin board is the official posting.  APPLICANTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO UNDERGO AND PASS A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE TEST IF A CONDITIONAL OFFER OF EMPLOYMENT IS EXTENDED.  Applicants may undergo a criminal history background, reference check and polygraph examination; upon a conditional job offer a drug screen, agility test, functional capacity evaluation, psychological evaluation and medical screening will be conducted.  Some convictions or deferred adjudication may be considered a contraindication for employment with the City of Hobbs.

Employees who are required to possess a commercial drivers license (CDL) are required to undergo alcohol and controlled substance testing which include pre-employment (controlled substance only), post-accident, reasonable suspicion, return to duty, follow-up and random testing.

The City of Hobbs is an Equal Opportunity Employer and a Drug-Free work place.  Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the non-essential functions.  We ask that you not contact the personnel responsible for interviewing the position of which you are applying; instead, wait for us to contact you.  Please ensure the Human Resources Department has your present points of contact.  All applicants may not be interviewed.

Selection Guidelines

Formal application, review of education and experience; oral interview and reference check; job related tests may be required.  The City of Hobbs requires applicants applying for a clerical position to take a typing, keyboard skills and 10-key test upon return of application to the Human Resources Department.  This test is conducted by the Human Resources Office. The testing hours are Monday thru Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Test results, pass or fail, are valid for six (6) months.  Applicants may retest every seven (7) calendar days.

Applications are position specific.  An applicant may apply for one position on a single application form; any additional or new positions must have a new application submitted.

The duties listed are intended only as illustrations of the various types of work that may be performed.  The omission of specific statements of duties does not exclude them from the position if the work is similar, related or a logical assignment to the position.
