The City of Pontiac requires a job related physical examination, including a drug and alcohol test and a complete background investigation, as part of our selection of regular and part-time, hourly, seasonal, and/or temporary employees.  All new and re-hired employees will have a criminal history check conducted.  Offers of employment are conditional upon the successful completion of these examinations.
