Thank you for considering employment with the Town of Queen Creek.

The Human Resources Division (HR) hires, develops and retains a competent, committed and diverse workforce to provide high quality and cost-effective services to Queen Creek residents. We accomplish our mission by partnering the people with the organization and honor the following guiding principles:

  • Employees are the Town's most important resource.
  • People issues are handled with respect, dignity and fairness.
  • Our service is driven by integrity, professionalism and commitment to the employee's values.
  • We role model excellence in teamwork, customer service and administration.

Recruitment Process
An important component to the recruitment process is keeping all applicants informed regarding the status of an application. For most positions, the recruitment process takes approximately 4-8 weeks.

Status and Eligibility Notification
Patience during the process is important- calling the HR office will not expedite the status of your application. The Town is dedicated to thorough consideration of all applications. Your patience and understanding is appreciated.

  • On-line job applicants will receive instant e-mailed notification of receipt.
  • Applicants meeting the minimum qualifications will be placed on an eligibility list.
  • Eligibility lists usually expire one year from the date the position closes.
  • Human Resources reserves the right to extend the life of an eligibility list or expire the list early.

Interview Selection and Notification
Applications are screened in relation to the position criteria stated in the job announcement. The hiring department will contact only the applicants (from the eligibility list) they select to interview. Their selection is based on applicants with the most relevant experience.

If you are contacted for an interview, additional requirements in the recruitment process may include a skill-based test or an oral presentation related to the position.

After an interview, candidates will be notified of their status by e-mail. 

Tips for Job Applicants

  • Details are important. Answer all requested information completely and accurately. Put N/A (not applicable) if the question does not pertain to you.
  • Do not state “see attached resume” on an application. The Town requires applications to be completed as thoroughly as possible.
  • Always check for spelling and grammatical errors.
  • List most recent job and educational activity first.
  • Provide professional (business/work-related) references and ensure you have their permission.
  • Allow sufficient time to complete the entire electronic application process before the closing date and time listed on the job posting.
