Employment for any Wayne County Human Services position is covered through the Merit System, a Local Government Civil Service Employment System of the Pennsylvania Civil Service Commission. This system is based primarily on your work experience, education, qualifications and abilities to do the work rather than other non-merit factors. In order to be considered for any position vacancy your name must appear on a civil service list for that specific job title. The Civil Service Commission has thousands of job titles and testing programs depending on your background. 

Alternative Locations

Of course, not all job titles are utilized in Wayne County. Many job titles are for employment in Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia or in regional state facilities. Vacancies may occur due to resignation, retirement, promotion, etc. sometimes it is not known ahead of time when a vacancy will occur making it difficult to have an ample pool of applicants on a list for a specific job title. It would be in your best interests to take as many tests as you qualify for so you can be prepared if a vacancy occurs.
