    That's amazing, how long did it take you to get through the medical portion after your initial exam?

    • It took about 4 months. They wanted more information on my hearing.

          • Would just like to express my frustration over how different each district's recruitment process is.

            One is fine with just a bachelor degree(which I have, but the area leaves a bit to be desired), and the one which is less than an hour away(requires a Master's which I don't have)

            Thinking about applying anyways...

              I think you will find the majority of districts require a masters degree or possibly a much needed specialty like forensics etc

                On that note, what are the internal listings like? Say I was to get in to a district that only required a bachelor's.
                If I wanted to transfer(five years down the road, etc), would the educational requirements be waived at a district that originally required a masters?

                • Is anyone on here a familiar with how North Carolina and Florida hire? What it is they are looking for in a candidate?

                  • I recently applied to all three of the districts in North Carolina and have yet to hear anything from the Middle and Eastern Districts. I was not selected for an interview in the Western District. I have 5 years P&P experience at the state and county levels and have a Master's. Not really sure what it is that district may be looking for..... Hope that helps a bit

                      Yes it does thank you. Kind of disheartening as I have a bachelors with 3.5 years social work (correctional and dcpp) but most recently po. Guess I'll just throw the app out there and see what happens.

                        Which District in Florida? Northern, Middle or Southern?

                          Any insight on any district would be great. Looks like there are postings for middle and southern currently.

                            Im not sure on this. In my district the only way they would take someone with a bachelors is if the candidate agreed to get a masters within X years from being hired.

                            • Masters, wow!!!!

                              You would think the pay would be better if they are pushing for people with masters degrees.
