CPA is dedicated to hiring qualified veterans, service members, and their families in achieving their employment goals. We thank you for considering CPA to fulfill your career opportunities.
Veteran’s preference affects both the interview and hiring processes.
If six or fewer applicants are chosen for an interview, a qualified veteran’s preference applicant from the pool must be interviewed. If more than six are interviewed, 20% of the number interviewed that are qualified veteran’s preference applicants must be interviewed.
If there are no veteran’s preference applicants in the qualified applicant pool, this guideline does not apply.
The veteran’s preference policy also means that if two applicants are finalists for a position, and equal in all respects, the veteran would be offered the job.
If veteran's preference were granted, the veteran or surviving unmarried spouse/orphan would be required to produce form DD214 or DD1300 documents when applying for positions to verify eligibility.
You are eligible under Texas Government Code, Section 657.002 for veteran's preference if you meet all the following qualifications:
A veteran's surviving spouse who has not remarried or an orphan of a veteran qualifies for a veteran's preference if the veteran was killed while on active duty. A copy of your DD1300 must be attached to your application when applying to positions at CPA.
Thank you for your dedication and service to our country!
