Do most federal jobs require testing or do they hire based upon experience?

I work for the State and most jobs require testing and a high score before you can even get an interview.

I've heard of the "Civil Service Exam." Is it just one test for a bunch of different jobs or is it a series of individual tests for individual jobs?

    I beleive the civil service exam is a thing of the past. There maybe special requiremenet for special jobs, but as a general rule, you are hired based on how well you meet the jobs requirements based on your resume and how well you addressed the position's Knowledge Skills and Abilities (KSA) list.
