    Veterans Preference

    Veterans may be eligible for preference during each step of the recruiting process.


    In accordance with Oregon law, veterans may be eligible:

    • Who pass an initial application screening.
    • Who meet  minimum qualifications.
    • Who meet any special qualifications for the position.

    An eligible candidate may receive either five points as a qualified veteran (non-disabled) or 10 points as a qualified veteran with disability (not both).

    If a competitive step of the City’s selection process is not scored, the City will apply preference based on another method for all qualifying veteran candidates, in accordance with state law.

    2. A copy of your DD214/DD215 form, or other acceptable form documenting veteran status and your letter stating veterans connected disability from the Department of Veterans Affairs. (10 points)
