What Do the Different "Classes" (Categories) Mean? 

Competitive Class

The competitive class of civil service consists of positions for which it is practicable to determine the merit and fitness of applicants by competitive examinations. These examinations are either open competitive, that is, open to all applicants meeting the minimum qualifications for the position; or, promotional, for those individuals already serving in a lower position within the same jurisdiction as the existing vacancy.

Provisional appointments may be made to positions in the competitive class if no list of eligible candidates exists. All provisional appointees are subject to passing a competitive examination and be reachable on any list established as a result of such an examination.

Continuous recruitment positions can be applied for at any time, and the eligible list will be used to fill vacancies as they occur. The personnel officer of Albany County reserves the right to terminate continuous recruitment and re-establish a periodic, announced-date type of examination.

Exempt Class

The exempt class of civil service consists of positions for which there is no competitive examination.  Candidates for appointment must meet minimum qualifications as established by the appointing authority. Those appointed in exempt class positions serve at the pleasure of the appointing authority. Applications for these positions will be accepted on a continual basis.

Non-Competitive Class

The non-competitive class of civil service consists of positions for which using a competitive examination to determine the merit and fitness of the applicants has been found to be not practicable.

Labor Class

The labor class of civil service consists of unskilled labor positions for which no competitive examination is practicable; however, applicants may be tested as to their fitness for employment.
