THE DEPARTMENT

Protecting Michigan’s environment . . . conserving its natural resources. . . providing outdoor opportunities for this State’s citizens and visitors.  That, in a few words, sums up the broad job of Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and its 3000 to 4000 full-time and temporary employees who work for this state.

The DNR is large and complex.  It is composed of a number of bureaus and divisions based at the Department’s headquarters in Lansing.

More than ninety percent (90%) of the DNR’s employees, however, work in its field organization, which has offices throughout the State.

For a long time, the DNR was looked upon as mainly a fish and game department, although it has been much more than that since its establishment in 1921.  From the beginning, its authority has extended over forests, parks, minerals of all kinds, and virtually all state-owned lands.  During the 1960s, its scope was broadened to include urban recreation.

In 1966, the DNR further expanded to include the functions of the Water Resources Commission, Waterways Commission (harbors and water access sites) and Boating Control Committee (marine safety).

Thus, the scope and importance of today’s DNR is truly awesome.  The DNR’s policies, programs and activities have a heavy impact on every Michigan citizen.  It can truly be said that what the DNR does affects the lives of more people in more ways than the operations of any other state administrative agency.

  

 

   


FRINGE BENEFITS

All full-time classified State employees are eligible to enroll in state-sponsored group health, life, dental, vision and long-term disability insurance.  A less than full-time classified State employee’s insurance eligibility will be dependent on the number of hours worked per calendar year.

Classified State employees earn four hours of annual leave (vacation) for each completed two-week (80 hour) work period, equivalent to 13 work days for a completed year.  After one year, two additional days are folded into your annual leave accrual.  Two additional days will be earned for every five years of continuous service.

Employees may accumulate annual leave of up to 30 days (or additional in accordance with total years of service) and when they leave State service, they are paid for unused annual leave at the current rate of pay.  Twelve paid holidays and sixteen hours of additional leave are granted each year.  Thirteen sick leave days are also earned annually with unlimited accumulation.

Annual and sick leave accruals for a less than full-time classified State employee will be based on the number of hours worked each pay period.

An annual longevity payment is made to employees who complete an aggregate of six years (12,480 hours) of continuous classified service.  New employees are automatically enrolled in a 401-type retirement system as of March 30, 1997.  The State contributes 4% and will match an employee’s contribution up to an additional 3%.  Employees are fully vested after four years.  State employees are also included under social security.


HOW TO APPLY

All classified positions in this Department are under the jurisdiction of the Michigan Civil Service Commission.  Some positions require that the applicant participate in an examination process for placement on an applicant pool prior to being considered for vacancies, while others are filled directly through a vacancy posting process.  Applicants should contact the Department of Civil Service at 517-373-3048 or check their web-site at http://www.michigan.gov/mdcs to determine which classifications require examinations and which are filled strictly through a vacancy posting system.

The DNR does not accept unsolicited resumes; only material received for a specific vacancy will be retained and may be considered.  Applicants must submit the required material each time as noted on the vacancy posting to be considered for that position. 

The DNR develops applicant pools for most positions by posting vacancies on the Civil Service Job Posting site at http://www.michigan.gov/mdcs.  The vacancy posting site is updated on a regular basis.  Applicants interested in working for the DNR should periodically check this site for available vacancies.  An applicant who wants to apply for a posted vacancy will need to complete a DNR Employment Application (Form PR7123e) and submit it directly to the DNR with a current resume and cover letter identifying which position the applicant is applying for.  Some postings may also require submission of college transcripts, completion of a written exercise or other application materials.  If additional information is required, it will be noted on the posting.

Examination processes are administered by the Department of Civil Service.  Some positions may require written examination.  Applicants who receive a passing score are placed in an applicant pool(s) maintained by the Department of Civil Service.  When the DNR has a vacancy for a classification that requires a written examination, we obtain a certified applicant pool from the Department of Civil Service.  All applicants for a vacancy requiring a Civil Service examination must be in the proper applicant pool to be considered.

The minimum education and/or experience requirements for all positions are listed on the Department of Civil Service’s home page at http://www.michigan.gov/mdcs, within the “Employment Information” link.

In considering an applicant’s educational qualifications for a position, Civil Service recognizes only those courses taken in high schools, two and four year colleges, and universities.  Some colleges and universities offer certain correspondence courses which may be applied toward a degree, and such courses are recognized by Civil Service.

If an applicant does not have a high school diploma, the Department of Civil Service recognizes completion of the General Education Development test (G.E.D.) as the equivalent to high school graduation.  Contact local school authorities for information.

Courses taken by the home study method from a correspondence school are not recognized by the Department of Civil Service as fulfillment for educational requirements.
