Proposal Information


Are you passionate about pay equity? If yes, then you will want to join our team in the Division of Classification & Compensation (C&C) at the Department of Civil Service. C&C administers a sound and responsive position classification and compensation plan for the state workforce to ensure fairness, equity, and sensitivity to market conditions and help the state attract and retain talent.

We ensure that employees' salaries are equitable and are based on the duties that they perform and not on non-job related characteristics. This is accomplished through, among other things:

* Reviewing proposed positions to ensure the appropriateness of the title and salary range.
* Changing the title and salary range of existing positions to recognize changes in employee's duties and responsibilities.
* Ensuring that state salaries are competitive to allow agencies to attract and retain talent.
* Establishing minimum qualifications for titles.

Our work forms the foundation for virtually every activity in the employment lifecycle: recruitment, hiring, employee development, performance evaluation, and rewards including compensation.

Our interns gain a broad understanding of state government operations and the job and organizational structure that support state programs. Interns perform a wide variety of duties where they will develop and strengthen critical and portable business skills. Activities will include research and data gathering, analysis of issues, preparation of a variety of written products (e.g., case analysis, correspondence, and classification standards) and presentation of cases to staff.

Competitive salary and flexible work schedule.
