Who will see my online job application?

The City of Converse is committed to ensuring your confidential information is protected. Your online job application is accessible to the Human Resources Department and the hiring managers for the specific position for which you are applying. As a public employer, job-related test scores and some applicant information may be treated as public information under the Texas Public Information Act.

What if I need to clarify or add information after submitting my application for a position?

If you are selected for an interview, you can inform the hiring manager of any updated/clarifying information.

Can I still apply if I have a criminal history?

Yes. Some jobs within the City of Converse are open to applicants with a criminal history. It depends on the nature and circumstances of your criminal record and the nature of the job you are seeking. It is very important to be honest and disclose on the application any criminal background you have. Prior to starting work with the City of Converse, each applicant is subject to a full background check. If a crime appears on a background check that was not disclosed on the application, then the offer of employment can be rescinded. If an undisclosed crime is discovered after you are hired, it can be grounds to terminate your employment.
