Frequently Asked Questions

Human Resources

How do I apply for a job online?

  • Print out the application, complete it in full, sign and date it, and either mail it in, drop it off, or fax it in at 741-8809.
What is the closing date for vacancies posted on the website and what do they mean?
  • Closing dates pertain to current City of Bossier employees only. They have no bearing on prospective employees and don't pertain to anyone who does not already work for the city.
How do I check on my application after I turn it in?
  • There is nothing you can do to check on your application once it has been turned in. We stamp all applications at the end of each day, we then send them to the department heads that are looking for prospective employees. The department heads then choose who they want to interview and hire. Please see a list of our departments and the department heads for information on who to speak with regarding a job.
How long do you keep applications on file?
  • We keep all applications on file for one year.
What is the pay scale for a particular job?
  • We use a Grade and Step for our pay scale and it varies from job to job, based on experience and education. There really is no way to tell what you would be making, until after someone has interviewed you and evaluated what your job skills are worth.
If I turn in a resume, do I also have to turn in an application?
  • Yes, we must have an application, signed and dated, and completed in full, before we can call you in for an interview.
Will a criminal history affect my employment with the City of Bossier City?
