The Grays Harbor County Civil Service Commission holds its regular monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of each month.  Meetings, which are open to the public, begin at 5:00 p.m. in Room 211 of the Forestry Building located at 310 W. Spruce Avenue in Montesano, Washington. 


                                                                               Exam Announcements

The Civil Service Commission authorizes the establishment of eligibility lists for use by the GHC Sheriff's Office for hiring and promotions.  Each list is established using an examination process.  Below you will see links specific to entry-level and lateral examinations.  During periods of open application, each entry-level link will take you to either a Word file or an Adobe pdf that will contain a Notice of Examination, a job description, and a civil service application to be completed and timely submitted.  Entry-level links will remain live, usually for a period of 2 to 3 weeks, until a specified closing date as set forth in the pertinent Notice of Examination. The lateral deputy sheriff link will remain open for continuous recruitment.  In all cases, each Notice of Examination will give instructions on the testing process.

Note:  During a period of open application, hard copies of all exam application material (Notice of Exam, job description, application) may be picked up at the GHC Sheriff's Office, 100 W. Broadway, Ste. 3, Montesano, Washington.  This pertains to Lateral Deputy Sheriff as well.
