I have been working at City of Salem Oregon full-time (More than 10 years)
The current City Manager Linda Norris tries hard to wisely spend taxpayer dollars and avoid layoffs. Like to promote from within.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at City of Salem Oregon in October 2016.
I spoke with the Building Department division manager and eventually the city manager. There was an initial phone interview, then a 1-on-1 interview with my direct supervisor, and then an interview with the City Manager.
