General information about GRU job listings
- Minimum salary information - There may be a minimum salary or a salary range listed for each position on the vacancy list. Hiring salary offers will not be lower than the posted minimum rate for the position. Actual salary offers are dependent upon the candidates qualifications, existing GRU policies, and the availability of funds for that department. The Classification, Compensation and Employment recruitment staff will work with the hiring departments to determine the appropriate rate of pay. Individuals with considerable skills and experience beyond the minimum hiring standard may be hired at a rate higher than the minimum, if departmental resources and internal equity considerations permit.
- Position Information - It is recommended that you maintain a record of the position(s) that you have applied
for. Once submitted, applications, resumes, work samples, etc...may become a part
of Human Resources files and may not be retrieved for the applicant. We also recommend
that you keep a copy of any job listing that you are applying for.
- Position Updates - Once a position is removed from the job posting, applications are no longer accepted. For some positions there can be a long delay between the time a job is posted, removed from posting and the time it is filled. If a hiring department wishes to interview you for a position, they will contact you directly. Please do not contact the hiring managers directly regarding the status of your application.

Response letters will be sent to all applicants, either via email or US mail, once a candidate has been chosen for the position.
