What should I do to prepare for the application process?

There is a lot you can do to help you prepare for the application process!  First, check out our Hiring Process page. Go on a ride along with our agency and learn as much as you can from the crews currently doing the job you seek. Visit the City of Grand Junction website to learn about our community.  Also, follow us on social media  where we’ll post pre-hiring events for potential applicants.  Ask questions! Reach out to our Training Division or Human Resources team directly, and we’d be happy to visit with you about the process.
