Before any decision is made regarding who should be invited to a test, each application is carefully reviewed based upon the requirements of the position. Only those candidates whose experience and training most closely match the City's requirements for the position, as indicated in the City of Brea employment application, will be invited to take part in the competitive testing process. If you receive notice that you are not among the highest qualified candidates, do not be discouraged. Sometimes the competition is pretty tough! We encourage you to try again in the future should a position become available.
