The current hiring process for the Door County Sheriff’s Office begins with the submission of an online application. At the end of the application period, the applications are screened to ensure that candidates meet the minimum qualifications. Qualified candidates are then required to take a standardized written test. The next step in the process is a panel interview with the Door County Civil Service Commission. The Commission ranks the candidates and when a vacancy occurs, the Sheriff receives the names of the top three candidates. These candidates are interviewed by the Sheriff and her administrative team. A thorough background check is conducted on each of the candidates, after which the Sheriff makes her selection and a conditional offer of employment is extended. The prospective employee is scheduled for a psychological test and a job function test. Once these are completed, the new employee is scheduled for orientation and a 12 week in-house training program.
