HOW TO APPLY
To be considered for employment with the City of Gresham, you must apply at http://wwww.greshamoregon.gov/jobs. Out of State Lateral candidates must complete the written exam through National Testing Network. The PAT test is not needed for the lateral position.

To sign-up for testing for Gresham Police Department and/or other NTN departments, go to: www.NationalTestingNetwork.com and select the main category of jobs-- "Law Enforcement," and then select the department(s) by clicking on to the box at the left of each position. Read all the department information and job requirements and if qualified click on to "I Qualify" at the bottom of each of their page(s). Select the location of your test and schedule your test date(s) and time(s) on our calendar (different calendars for each facility). We provide the P.A.T. immediately after or before the computer (situational video)/written/reading exams. Read all the testing instructions carefully and be at the test facility 30 minutes prior to test time for some paperwork and briefing. The written/computer test takes about 2 hrs/10 minutes and the P.A.T. takes about an hour or longer. Wear your P.T. attire for all testing. If you have any questions, please call us at 866-563- 3882. If you have never taken an Ergometrics situational video test, you may want to take the Practice Test, which is on the second page of our website (bottom left box)--"Prep for the Test." The test provides sample questions and some explanations.
