  • Well I got the call today from Phoenix Police....

    Written taken on 5/23/08. I got the final good news today (7/29/08). I have to say that it is a tough competitive process. The key thing is to not get discouraged. There will be something that will give you some kind of a problem along the way.

      Thanks man! They told me that they want me to work in the main downtown building until the academy starts in September. I have been told that August classes for the academy are already filled up.

        Good to hear. I know what you mean about something will give you a problem. I ran into so many issues I started to get extremely discouraged myself. I took my written on 6/5/08 and my BI let me know today she just submitted my background info for a conditional hire. She doesn't know how long it will take them to approve it though, and then I still have the psych/medical, but at least I should be moving along with you. They really are flying through this right now!!

        Congrats

          First off congrats Ninja!!!
          Sublimejhn your time is coming soon. If you made it past the background phase your good to go. Unless your crazy.

          I just started with Phoenix on Monday. They told us we are up against the July 14th group of pre-hires. The group with the highest pt scores will be put in the August class. They said they have 25-28 spots open to fill. Jt81 will be in the group (Good Luck). As it is now I'm slotted to go September 8th. If my pt scores are better then others in the group, they will move me into the August class.

          They have me working in one of the precincts, so far its pretty cool.

          Good luck Sublimejhn!!
          I'm sure I'll see both of you guys soon. Put on your running shoes its gonna be a long ride!!!!!!

                    I know, they are moving way faster than what I have been told they would. And yesterday my BI submitted me for conditional and said she didn't know how long it would take to get approved, well she already called me today with the conditional hire!! I fly out there for my medical on the 5th and psych on the 6th and 8th, with another fun PT test on the 7th. But she has me set for an actual hire date of Aug 25th so I have some time to take care of all the stuff I have been putting off here in MI. If by chance I can't get hired on the 25th though she said I would get a Sept 8th hire. So if everything goes as planned at this point I will have a June 5th written, and an August 25th hire, Just over 2 and a half months!! Plus I am out of state which I think has drug things out longer than they would have been otherwise. It's amazing the difference between finding a job in AZ vs MI right now. I love it!!

                    No doubt if you want in fast Phoenix is the dept to go for right now

                    Now if only I could find a round trip ticket for less than $600 this time!! Every other time was around $300-$350, I don't know what's so special about the beginning of August but man is that killing me

                      Looked at the price of oil/fuel lately? There's your answer.

                          Haha, true but I just flew a month ago for $350, gasoline didn't jump up that much in a month. Actually I believe it dropped a little

                            Jet fuel and gasoline are two different things. Airlines hiked ticket prices a ton the last month, a few times I think. Oil has gone down in the past couple weeks, but airline tickets went the opposite way. My girlfriend's grandma just passed away, so her parents are looking at tickets from Phoenix to Milwaukee....OUTRAGEOUS!! Even with the bereavement discount they were sky high...no pun intended.

                            Does Phoenix still offer the $2,000 bonus? I think part is paid after completion of the Academy, and the other part is paid after probation? If so, that would eventually cover some of the interviewing/relocating costs. Just gotta think of it is "deferred reimbursement". Hehe.

                            My mind is still blown away by the 2-month timeframe; that is awesome.
