  • LASD Oral interview

    Does anyone know what kind of questions they ask you in the interview, what should I expect?

  • #2
    I can't give specific questions but I can say the following is important: know the duties of a deputy sheriff - remember, it's not just patrol like a PD; know why YOU are qualified to be a deputy sheriff and what you've done to prepare yourself for the career; know your strong areas and areas needing improvement; know the difference between "letter of the law" and "spirit of the law" and how to apply these to given scenarios.

    It's one-on-one with a deputy. Very straightforward. Eye contact, business attire, confidence, and respect are key.

    Much of what I noted above I discovered here:

    Good luck!

      so very true. this is great advice and i'm only speaking from expirence. i too was in your position of not knowing what to expect. follow stugotz simple guide lines and you will do just fine. be sure to take a moment to think about the question before you answer. most importantly be confident and calm!!! good luck and keep us updated.

        +1

        no reason to be nervous as they are not trying to find something to DQ u on, just looking to see if u are a good fit for the career. be honest and prepared and u should be fine. good luck.

              FULL SUIT for males and females. Dark color like black, grey, or navy blue. Pressed white shirt. Conservative tie. Shoes shined. Fresh hair cut. No facial hair for the guys. No cologne/perfume (it's a small room). Wedding ring only for guys, and for ladies wedding ring & minimal jewelry.

              Appearance and presence are factored into the score. Like the link above notes:

              AREAS OF EVALUATION:
              - Your interest in the position
              - Your appearance, grooming and attire
              - Attitude and demeanor
              - Communication Skills
              - Professionalism

              APPROPRIATE GROOMING:
              1. Remember: First impressions are important.
              2. Departmental grooming standards are recommended but not mandatory.
              3. Proper business attire is recommended.

                I'm gonna turn off the subject just a little. Can anyone tell me the passing score for LASD written exam? A year ago it was low, I think 33, just want to know if it's still that low. also will they take my score from Riverside sheriff?

                      Buy a matching colored sport coat from Burlington Coat Factory or some other large retailer. It'll run you about $40-$60 dollars. It's worth the investment.

                          If you are serious about LE for a career and plan on doing several oral interviews, as well as interviewing for other jobs, then I would suggest that you invest in a suit. You will need to wear one on several occasions. With the exception of one meeting, I wore a suit every time I did another step in the process.

                          When I went through the academy, I knew that I would need several suits and ones that I didn't care whether or not they "survived". I went to JC Penny and found really cheap suits ($80) that I could do push ups and mountain climbers in all day. You are going to need several, due to sweat/dirt.

                              I'm gonna hit up JC tomorrow. Now that I think about it I think Wal-Mart has suits too. A suits a suit I guess, as long as I dont look like a bum.
