What happens after I am selected for a position with DPS?

If you are selected for a position, you will receive an email indicating that you have been recommended for hire. Following that, you will receive an email from DPS HR in 1-2 days that outlines the remaining steps of the hiring process. This includes completing a criminal background check, attending orientation, and providing all required documents to HR. The entire hiring process takes about 2 weeks on average.
