    I don't understand what you mean? The test is the same for the whole state. Do you mean that you don't think too many people will apply for an Onondaga county position? For anyone who is looking to get their foot in the door, its a great opportunity just like anywhere else. Also if you think about it, a smaller list has a higher chance for someone to get appointed. There are also 2 vacancies now for Fayetteville now that I am heading south.

      same civil service test, but i believe they give it on their own individually and at their test site right? i def agree with you, great place to start. all i was implying is its a small department and not many positions to fill.. just sayin not a lot of people would take it. im going to sign up for it because there are no residency requirements.

        and i guess by "not a lot" i mean 4,000+ like in a bigger city.. im guessing maybe 1000 would take this test? what do you think?

          I was hired off this list in 2009 and it was established in late 2008. There were only 81 names on it! Remember if you crossfile, you can apply anywhere and everywhere and take the test on March 5th at a site that is close and or convenient for you. Good luck!

            I would definitely recommend cross-filing and taking the test for as many positions as possible!...Remember, you can always turn down a position- but you can't go back and add your name to a list after the test is over!

                    On every job announcement will be a phone number listed to contact NYS Civil Service. You will have to tell them all the announcements you applied for (with the exam #'s) and what site you plan to sit and take the test on March 5th.

                          A larger Dept. with a greater opportunity for carreer advancement. The weather is a bit more appealing as well.
