Personnel Director

Kelly Epperson, Human Resources Director
The City of Muskogee has approximately 450 full time employees and hires additional part time employees on a seasonal basis.

One of the Personnel Department's primary responsibilities is to search for the most qualified individuals to fill vacant positions. Searches are conducted both internally and externally with first preference given to qualified internal candidates.

In order to efficiently manage our open positions and the candidates who apply for positions, we only accept applications during position vacancies. Fulltime positions require proof of high school diploma/GED and/or college degree for consideration of employment at the City of Muskogee. Position vacancies are posted as follows:
  • Human Resources Department bulletin board on the second floor of City Hall (229 West Okmulgee).
  • Vacancies are also listed with Workforce Oklahoma, Choctaw Nation, Indian Capital Technology Center, Northeastern State University, NAACP, and other organizations.
  • In some cases, the City places advertisements in the Muskogee Phoenix.
Applicants may use any one of several methods to apply:
  1. Application forms are available in the Personnel Department on the second floor of City Hall. The office is open between 8 AM and 5 PM Monday through Friday.
  2. The City also accepts applications by mail, fax or sent to the Personnel Departmentís email address. Our fax number is (918) 684-6223.
All successful applicants must pass both a post-offer drug and alcohol screen and physical. Arrangements will be made for you to take the screening and physical at the Cityís expense at the time an offer is made. Finally, successful applicants must provide proof of employment eligibility according to Federal guidelines and must have a valid Oklahoma driverís license.

Besides seeking and screening applicants for vacant positions, the Personnel Department also administers the Cityís internal promotional processes and the employee payroll and benefit functions. The City has an excellent benefit program which includes:
  1. paid holidays, vacation, and sick leave
  2. employee-paid medical, dental, and vision insurance
  3. excellent retirement programs
Under the direction of the City Manager and Council, the Personnel Director also negotiates annual collective bargaining agreements with the Cityís three unions. The Department ensures policies and collective bargaining agreements are followed.

The City of Muskogee is an equal opportunity employer and actively seeks diversity in its employment processes. We strictly follow Federal, State and municipal employment statutes and regulations. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply for employment.
