APPLICATION PROCESS:

When the eligibility list is being developed and applications are being accepted, applications are electronically submitted through:

PHASE 1: Submit Application

Applicants must complete and electronically submit all application materials by the established deadline. Applications are available HERE. Completed applications and all other required documentation should be emailed to HR@cville.org, or may dropped off at the Human Resources Department at 1200 L.W. Besinger Drive, Carpentersville, IL.

In addition to the application form, candidates are required to submit copies of the following documents as part of their application:

  • Valid state-issued driver's license;
  • Birth Certificate;
  • High school diploma or G.E. D. equivalent;
  • Valid P.O.W.E.R. test card issued within 12 months of the application due date;
  • Candidates requesting preference points must submit documentation at this time.

PHASE 2: Written Examination

Following completion and submission of all application materials, applicants are required to participate in remote on-line, or on site, written examination test. All of the testing is scheduled and administered through the National Testing Network

The National Testing Network requires an application fee. Applicants that have previously submitted a written exam may be eligible for a reduced application fee of $15. Applicants that meet certain criteria for financial hardships may request a waiver of the testing fee. Contact the National Testing Network for more information.

PHASE 3: Oral Interview

The applicants with the top 30 scores on the written exam will be invited to sit for an oral interview with the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners. Applicants will be notified of their eligibility to proceed to this step approximately one week prior to the interview process.

 Examination  Weight of Scoring
 Written Examination  40%
 Oral Interview  60%

PHASE 4: Development of Eligibility List

All applicants successfully passing the written examination and oral interview shall be placed on an Initial Eligibility List. Preference Points will then be tabulated for eligible applicants who submitted documentation requesting preference points during the application process, for a Final Eligibility List which will be valid for two years from its establishment. From this Final Eligibility List, applicants shall be appointed in descending order if/when a job opening presents itself. Full employment will be withheld until a successful completion of the following:

  • Submission of required documentation (copy of birth certificate, driver’s license, naturalization certificate if applicable, etc.);
  • Background Investigation;
  • Polygraph Examination;
  • Psychological Examination by Licensed Clinical Psychologist;
  • Medical Examination (which shall include a test of the applicant’s vision, hearing, presence of communicable diseases as well as a test to screen for the use of drugs and/or narcotics);
  • Must pass pre-academy P.O.W.E.R. Test.

The selection process is estimated to take approximately 100 to 180 days from the date applications are to be turned in, until the date that the applicant is hired. In the event that an applicant fails to successfully complete the application process, they are eligible to re-apply the next time the Carpentersville Board of Police and Fire Commission initiates a new selection process.
