Many positions fall under the Massachusetts Civil Service System. Such positions are classified as either Official Service or Labor Service, and the application process varies depending upon the position’s classification.
Official Service positions are those that require the completion of an examination, such as Police Officers and Firefighters. For a schedule of examinations and/or further information about the Civil Service system, please visit the Massachusetts Human Resource Division website at www.state.ma.us./hrd.
Labor Service positions include a wide range of positions, such as laborers, skilled laborers, mechanics, truck drivers, craftsmen, and cafeteria workers. Selection for a labor service position is based upon registration rather than written examination. Some Labor Service positions are entry level and do not require previous experience, while others are at a higher skill level and require applicants to meet minimum experience and/or licensing requirements. A vacancy does not need to exist in order for an individual to apply for a Labor Service position. Applications for Labor Service positions may be obtained in person at the Personnel Department.
