Employment Process

Applicants must complete and submit an official Housing Authority application form and any other required documents no later than 4:00 p.m. on the final filing date specified on the job announcement. A separate application must be filed for each examination. Resumes will be accepted but may not be substituted for the required application form.

HASBARCO provides an interview and hiring preference for known qualified Section 3 residents. (Section 3 Plan)

The requirements as stated on the front of this job announcement represent only the minimum required to file an application. Meeting the listed requirements does not guarantee that a candidate will qualify for an interview as the Personnel Department reserves the right to limit the number of candidates to those whose recent work experience most closely matches the requirements of the position.

Residents of Housing Authority properties who meet the minimum qualifications for a position are eligible for a Section 3 preference. Section 3 information forms are included with all applications for employment and are available at all Housing Authority locations.

Any applicant receiving an interview will be scored. Any applicant with a passing score of 70% or higher will be retained on an eligibility list for that position for a period of one year. It will not be mandatory to hire the top person on the list.

Eligible applications will be reviewed whenever there is a job opening in that category. The applications of the top five applicants will be examined and the department head will make recommendations. The department head may recommend appointment of any or none of the persons referred.

The eligibility list will be considered exhausted when all applicants have failed to reply to notification of interviews by the specified time, or after their application has been reviewed three times without offer of hire.

The Housing Authority is an equal opportunity employer and selects the best matched individual for the job based upon job related qualifications, regardless of race, color, creed, sex, national origin, age, handicap or other protected groups under State, Federal or local equal opportunity laws.
