Most TAP employees are hired as "Temporary Assistants" and fill assignments for many of the job classifications listed in our Job Descriptions.
Applicants for TAP assignments must meet the same requirements as applicants for regular positions, which means they must meet all minimum job qualifications, pass any required exams, and undergo a background check and physical examination/drug screen.
Depending on the needs of the particular department and assignment, the length of the assignment can vary but typically lasts for six months. Employment is "at-will," which means the employee can be released at any time for any reason or no reason.
TAP employees do not receive the benefits that regular employees receive. The TAP Pay Rate is set at 5.5% less than the pay established for the regular job classification.
