Human Resources

As director of human resources for the City of Mesquite, I would like to welcome you to our website. Here you can apply for a job, find out information regarding benefits the city has to offer, or learn about our mission of the Human Resources Department, and much more.

Rick French
Director of Human Resources
Serving Employees & Applicants
 The Human Resources Department for the City of Mesquite is here to serve management, employees, retirees and their families, as well as applicants. We take great pride in what we do and how we do it. While a lot of our job is compliance related, our motto is "it's not about policy, it's not about procedure;  it’s about service." This does not mean that we don't have policies and procedures that we adhere to, but rather we will not use them as an excuse not to provide quality customer service - we have reasons for what and how we do things.

As a department that touches employees, retirees, and many of their family members, as well as the public - with the responsibility to provide sound compensation and benefits plans, hiring practices, a safe environment to work, and ensures all are treated fair and justly - we believe we have a unique opportunity in the city to provide bold leadership through bold ideas. Each member of the Human Resources department is charged with the duty to "see it, own it, solve it, do it."

So, take the opportunity to learn what were about through our website. I hope you will find it easy to use and that it provides useful information. If you need additional assistance, please feel free to contact us either by phone or email.
