Civil Service Examinations

Overview
Announcements for Civil Service examinations are publicized on the City of New Rochelle website and cable and FIOS channels. Printed copies are also available in the Civil Service office and all public buildings.

The Civil Service Department requests examinations be scheduled based on the number of positions, the length of the current eligible list, the age of the list, and the turnover of employees within the title.

Eligible lists are valid for a minimum period of 1 year from the date of establishment and up to 4 years at the discretion of the Civil Service Commission.
