SNOCOM strives to hire the finest candidates available. Finding candidates that meet these qualifications is not a quick or simple process. SNOCOM therefore requires a multi-step testing and screening process which can take several months from the time the position is posted to the actual hire date.

Steps in the process may include the following: 

  • Completion of an initial application and questionnaire; followed by a screening process through to verify that they meet our minimum requirements for the position. (A minimum PST score of 70% is required.)
  • Typing Test with a required speed of 35 WPM with 90% accuracy to move forward in the process.
  • Profile XT assessment (via internet) that measures an applicant's job-related qualities that make that person productive. Thinking and Reasoning Style, Behavior Traits and Occupational Interests are examined.
  • A panel interview comprised of members from the SNOCOM dispatch team and representatives from our police and fire agencies.
  • A final interview with the SNOCOM Director and/or Operations Manager will be scheduled for applicants that are recommended by the panel to move forward.
  • Applicants selected by the Operations Manager and Director will undergo a pre-employment polygraph and psychological examination. Additionally, fingerprinting and a thorough background investigation will be conducted.
