Application Process

Employment Guidelines

Before applying for a position with the City of Burleson, please review these guidelines:
  • The City accepts online applications only for posted, open positions.
  • You may upload a resume with your online application, but resumes will not substitute for an application.
  • All positions are open until filled. This means the hiring manager can choose to stop the collection of applications at the point he/she is ready to begin the interview process. If no candidates are selected, the position may be posted again.
  • The City of Burleson will contact (either by phone, email, or mail) the applicants selected for pre-placement testing and/or personal interview. Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we are not able to contact each applicant by phone.
  • If you wish to be considered for future positions, you must submit a new application online for each position.
  • The City of Burleson is an equal opportunity employer.
