Further, a conviction within the last three (3) years for driving while intoxicated, under the influence of narcotics, and/or any serious violation, to include, but not limited to, reckless driving, endangering the lives of others, or racing, are grounds for disqualification in compliance with the requirements of the City’s insurer.

Your signature on the employment application authorizes the City of Oviedo to request criminal conviction records from State and Federal agencies, and employment and educational information/verification from your existing/previous employers and educational institutions, and credit history check (where applicable). The City requires that you disclose whether you have ever been convicted, pled guilty, pled nolo contendere to any criminal offense. If you have ever been convicted, pled guilty or pled nolo contendere to any criminal offense, you will need to attach a separate sheet giving offense, date, county, state and disposition for each offense. If applying online, fax criminal history information to 407-971-5802, attention Human Resources, or email us your criminal history information. By placing your signature on the application and not submitting a separate sheet explaining the criminal history, you are stating that you have never been convicted, pled guilty or pled nolo contendere to any criminal offense. A criminal record does not constitute an automatic bar to employment and will be considered only as it relates to the job in question.
Answer all questions on the application, giving complete answers to all questions. It is important that you include your salary history as well as the month and date in your employment history. Failure to do so may cause disqualification of your application. Please provide information on all positions held for the last fifteen (15) years (where applicable). The City of Oviedo reserves the right to conduct a background search at any time to verify all answers on the application; falsification of any item is cause for disqualification of application and/or termination. If you wish to submit a resume with your application, please list all information in the “Employment Experience” section of the application. Under the “Work Performed” section, you may insert the words “see resume.” Finally, it is your responsibility to clearly indicate on the application or resume if you possess any of the special requirements listed in the job announcement and to present copies of special certificates of licenses at the time of application.
