  • Spring 2011 - TPD and UAPD hiring process

    Anyone else just take the test for TPD and UAPD?

    I took the written test for UAPD last week, and the one for TPD today. Just wanted to see if anyone else was goin' through the journey as well

    Woo hoo! Apparently, I'm the only one! I fully expect two job offers then

      In the spirit of keeping my own thread updated:

      TPD: Passed the written test, physical ability test is April 29th.

      UAPD: Still haven't heard back...it's been 4 weeks on Friday

        I went to both.

        I was the one retesting for Tuscaloosa. I ended up scoring lower than my original test, so I got pushed back on the list. That test pretty much dictates if you are going to be hired or not. I'll retest again in the Fall.

        UAPD contacted me about an interview, but I'm passing because of money issues. Good luck man!

          Thanks!

          I went to the interview for UAPD...I should get a letter in the next 2-3 weeks, telling me what my place on the list is *crosses fingers*.

          Taking the PAT for TPD in two weeks...god, this is a long process!

            No, they don't currently have any openings...they're just assembling a hiring list.

            Still, it's worth it to put in your application...people retire all the time (hopefully)

            I think they offer the written test once every six months (in January and July).

            Selection process is pretty simple; written test, panel interview, notified of position on hiring list. First 15-20 people get an opportunity to take the physical abilities test. At that point, you get to wait on the list until they have an opening.

            Hope this helps!

              Get any info back from either agency?

              I'll probably retest with Tuscaloosa again, if I don't get hired somewhere else by Fall.

                Any idea as to when Tuscaloosa will be giving another written test?

                  Sometime in September I believe. They usually do it every 6 months, and last time was in March.

                    The lieutenant interviewing me said that since they don't anticipate hiring very many people, they probably aren't going to give the test again until next summer.
