How to Apply
The Application Process

To make the application process more efficient, the City of Colton has adopted a public agency job portal that allows customers to be alerted when employment opportunities become available. To register for this application portal go to calopps.org. All applicants must submit a City of Colton Employment Application, online or paper application, and any required supplemental questionnaires or materials in order to be considered in the recruitment process. Applications must be received by Human Resources Department no later than the closing date posted on each job announcement. If no deadline is shown, applications will be accepted on a continuous basis however, the recruitment is subject to closure without any advance notice.

In completing the Employment Application, be as thorough as possible when indicating the education, training, and/or experience needed to qualify for the testing process. Exact dates of employment are critical in determining qualifying experience. Please be sure to provide average number of hours you worked if your experience was part-time. Try to focus the information you are providing on the employment application to education and experience that is specifically applicable to the job for which you are applying. Other information may be provided, but full consideration will be based on those skills that specifically qualify you for the position being recruited.

General Guidelines

  • The City does not keep interest cards, nor are applications or resumes accepted unless the position is currently open.
  • Resumes may be attached with applications, but are not accepted in lieu of completing a city application. It is important that you do not indicated "see attached resume" in lieu of fully providing the information requested on the employment application.
  • Your application must be signed, dated, and returned to our office on or before the filing deadline date and time. If you are using an expedited mailing service, please make sure the delivery is guaranteed by the filing deadline.
  • Late applications and facsimiles will not be accepted.
  • Once you have submitted your application packet, please be sure immediately notify Human Resources of any changes in personal information such as your address or phone number.
