Columbia County is seeking Candidates to fill vacancies for Corrections Deputy in the Columbia County Jail. Veterans and those who have never worked in the field are encouraged to apply.
This is a Civil Service position that is full time, 40 hours per week (plus regular required overtime) on a rotating shift basis (day/swing/night) and part of the team at the Sheriff’s Office. Candidates must be 21 years of age or older with a valid driver’s license, have a high school education, preferably with additional college level education in the law enforcement field.
Salary: $3,612 - $5,292 with additional pay for DPSST certification.
Civil Service applications are mandatory and must be submitted to the County Human Resources Department by 5:00 pm on APRIL 20, 2018.
There will be an interim review and processing of applications received by March 2, 2018 with additional review after the deadline of those which are submitted after 3/2/18 but before the deadline.
Applications will only be accepted via online submission per the instructions online. If you do not complete all required steps (application plus the testing through NTN described below), you will not be considered for hire and will not receive any contact from the County regarding the status of your application.
Potential candidates must also complete the REACT test and the ORPAT test through National Testing Network (nationaltestingnetwork.com) by 4/20/18.
The approximate cost is $44 for the REACT and $85 for the ORPAT. All tests are scheduled directly through NTN. There are limited testing dates, so candidates must plan in advance to complete the required testing by 4/20/18.
To be considered during the interim review, applicants must complete the NTN testing by 3/2/18.
The REACT test also includes a physical testing component but, in Oregon, candidates must complete the specific ORPAT physical test in order to be accepted by the DPSST academy. The advantage of testing through NTN is that candidates can then be eligible to apply for any of the agencies which may use NTN’s services.
