The Calcasieu Parish Clerk of Court is always accepting applications. 


When openings become available, the Director of Personnel will review "active" applications. All applications are considered "active" for 90 days.


Because our office has many departments and a large staff (120+), the job openings are varied and may require unique qualifications. 



Positions are best suited for applicants seeking long term employment. Full-Time Positions start at $10.50 per hour regardless of experience. Full time employees enjoy a generous benefits package which includes healthcare, retirement, investment match, life insurance, paid vacation, and personal time off, the value of which puts a new employee earning a value of $16 - $17 per hour.


All full time applicants are screened by a staffing agency, which administers a basic skills test, background check, and a drug screening. It is likely that the first contact you would receive will come from the screening agency once your application has been submitted for an open position.
