Satisfactory information produced at any time to the director or designee, either before or after examination, that an applicant has committed acts which demonstrate character traits which would be detrimental to successful performance of the employment sought, or of the applicant's dismissal for good cause from any branch of public service, or of his or her conviction of a job related felony or has an established pattern of poor work habits and performance with previous employers, shall be sufficient to exclude the applicant from examination, or to remove the applicant's name from any eligible list, providing such person shall be notified as to the reason and shall be given an opportunity for a review by the director or designee. All documentation submitted by applicants or appointing authorities as to character and fitness shall be subject to investigation by the director or designee.

(A) The completed application, which may consist of a civil service application, resume, responses to supplemental questions, or other documents specified in the job posting, will be the sole criteria in determining an applicant's eligibility for any examination. Information showing that an applicant meets all of the minimum qualifications as stated on a job posting must appear on the completed application.
(B) Failure of an applicant to indicate the qualifications as to experience or any other requirements described in the job posting will be considered sufficient cause to exclude an applicant from the examination. An applicant may correct an incomplete application as long as any necessary corrections are made prior to the posting deadline.
