Civil Service Testing Procedures
The PRC Contacts You via Email
The PRC will contact you about civil service testing ONLY via email. We will send messages to the email address on your online application profile with the county. We will contact you via our email address of PRCEmploymentTesting@cuyahogacounty.us. Please make sure this is a trusted sender for your email account. We do not accommodate requests or reconsiderations because an email from the PRC was overlooked or filtered into a junk/spam folder. Contact us immediately with any changes to your email address.
Scheduled In-Person Testing
In some cases, we may schedule the test for a specific date and time at the PRC offices. All of the online testing procedures still apply EXCEPT that you must attend on the date and time listed in your notification email. We try to provide 10-14 days’ notice in these cases so you can arrange to attend, and we usually allow rescheduling if you have a conflict.
In some cases, the PRC uses a structured interview as the civil service test. If we invite you for a structured interview, all of the online testing procedures apply EXCEPT for the following:
- The interview may be at a different location or happen via teleconference, and
- The interview will not be on demand and must be scheduled ahead of time.
Please refer to your notification email for details on the location, specific procedures, and available dates and times for the structured interview.
