Human Resources Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know that the city has successfully received my online application?

Once you have submitted your application online, you will receive a confirmation email if you provided a valid email on your application. Be sure to check your spam or junk mail folder if you do not receive the confirmation email in your inbox.


How can I check the status of my application?

You may contact our Human Resources Office at 956-432-0300 to check the status of your application.

Once I have applied online, when will I be contacted?

Once you have applied online, your application will be reviewed to determine if you meet the minimum qualifications for the position(s) in which you are applying. If you meet the minimum qualifications, your application will be routed to the hiring manager for review and the hiring manager will contact you directly if you are selected for an interview.

May I send my resume?

A resume is not accepted in lieu of an online application. However, you may attach your resume to your online application for the hiring manager to view. Please note, applications that are not complete, but have a resume attached, will be considered an incomplete application.

Why was my application not considered?

Once received, all applications will be reviewed for completeness and to ensure that an applicant meets the minimum qualifications of the position that they are applying for. Incomplete applications, along with applicants who do not meet the minimum qualifications, may not be eligible for further consideration.  Due to the large volume of applications received, not all qualified candidates will be contacted.

How do I apply for a city job?

Applications are accepted online for open positions. We do not accept paper applications or resumes in lieu of an application. Applications are only accepted for current open positions.
