Interviews, Background Checks and Pre-employment Examinations
Candidates who meet the minimum qualifications of a position may be selected for an interview. During the interview process, certain individuals may be asked to sign a letter authorizing the Galesburg Police Department to conduct a background check. The background check is completed prior to making a job offer to an individual. All offers of employment are contingent upon the applicant's successful completion of a pre-employment physical examination that includes a drug test, and verification of prior employment and education.
All personnel hired by the City are required to obtain residency within 20 miles of City Hall (see map) no later than 13 months after their first day of employment. No exceptions will be made to this requirement.
Regular full-time City employees are either represented by one of three unions or are covered under a personnel policy for exempt employees. Current contracts are listed in the document center. The salary ordinance is updated as necessary and approved by City Council.
