Selected applicants are contacted and scheduled for a group testing session. Areas tested are spelling accuracy, short-term memory, multi-tasking ability and basic map reading abilities. Applicant must score 80% or higher on all tests to be considered. During this session, a brief orientation will be given.

Depending on the results of the group testing, the applicant may be asked to come back in for the next round of tests. These test are more job related. For example: typing tests, decision making tests and data entry and information retrieval tests.

Based on the second round of tests, the applicants will then be scheduled for an interview with the Board of Safety and Communications Administration. Depending on the outcome of these interviews, the applicant then may be offered a conditional offer of employment.
