All seasonal applications are reviewed by the Personnel Department and then forwarded to the appropriate department based upon the information provided by the applicant (i.e. position requested, experience, etc.). That department will then contact you if they are interested in interviewing you. Please note that the Town of Smithtown receives over 700 seasonal applications each year; unfortunately, not everyone who applies will be hired. If you are not contacted by mid-June please assume that all seasonal positions have been filled. We invite you to apply again next year.
