Does anyone know how long it takes for NYC government job to finalize? I did some research, and it seems like the longest waiting time is the approval of OMB (Office of Management and Budgeting).

Any information is appreciated.

I'm not talking about the civil exam list. It is a job that does not have a list. I was told that they need approval on omb.

For me it took about 3 months. I interviewed for a position in Jan. and was told I got the job in April. All that time in between not a single word. Then they rushed me, giving me the minimum of a 2 weeks notice to my former employer. So I left my old job on a Friday, started city job that Monday.

They take forever (6 months to a year for provisionals but civil service titles take yeaaaaaaars) but if you know someone, that can work in your favor which will make process a "tad" quicker (provisionals only). Most likely, they take long because they have to do a background investigation on the potential candidate(s).

Sounds about right. Keep looking unless you are officially on the job, or else consider as the job is not yours.
