  • How many interviews/test processes did you go through

    before you found a job? I've had three interviews, two of which ended with a no hire, one of which is in the background process, and also have another testing/interview process going now. Kind of discouraging. Just anxious to get to work, I guess.

      Currently waiting on my medical results, but I'm pretty much in at this point. I applied at 7 different agencies, 3 of which never even so much as called or sent a letter. Luckily I got my first choice. Good luck in your search and stay safe.
      Never second guess your own common sense.

        I applied with 2 different agencies (although one of those two I recruited with twice) before I got offered a job. I know how discouraging it can be since the process is so long, but keep your chin up.

          Thanks guys. I was hoping to hear from the department I interviewed with last week today but no dice. Hopefully good news next week.

              I asked a similar question in April and a number of officers replied. You may be surprised to learn that it's not unheard of for police officer wannabes to apply to over 20 PDs before being hired for the first time. So hang in there and be patient.

                Hey thanks.

                I should've searched.

                    It took me 7 or 8 written tests just to get processed further. I am have just recently been through my first polygraph and background check and it is a year and a half into applying. So keep your head up.

                        "Screwed" keep in mind when you apply for most agencies, especially larger ones, there may be 300 applicants going for one or two openings! Keep plugging away and do what you can to gain the edge over your competition.

                        15 years ago, I applied at 7 or so agencies in Broward. I took the first offer and worked a few years before applying again to the agency where I wanted to be and was able to use the "experience" to help me get hired there right away.

                          One. My first day is tomorrow.

                          I somehow managed to get hired by the only agency I applied for, but I understand that's quite unusual.

                              Found out last night that the BI handling my stuff was out of town last week and again this week so I guess that explains why I haven't heard anything yet. Love that waiting game. Reminds me of my military days.
