  • withdrawing out...

    Hey guys, I was just wondering if it looks bad for future applications or backgrounds, when you withdraw from testing phase. I withdrew from two depts before taking written test last year (weeks apart from each other) due to being in probation time with a new employment. I am now contemplating on dropping out from one more due to financial issues, driving up and down the state is no cheap venture. Dont get me wrong, Id do anything to keep plugging away with applications and attending as much as possible, but dreams do get tied down with financial responsibilities. So my question is, will that affect me in any way? Thanks fellas

    You have to live with the choices you make. I know I would pass over you in a heartbeat for someone else whom actually made a choice to commit when he started. You are now looking at dropping out for a third time... I'm guessing you have used the same excuse for other responsibilities you have had.

          Buffaloboy doesn't have a clue what he is talking about. People withdraw from hiring processes all the time. I know for a fact that I applied at several agencies where I didn't even bother testing because I thought they wouldn't be a good fit for me or because the test conflicted with something else in my schedule

          At the point where you withdrew (before the written test) it does not harm an agency or you at all. Believe me, I have held 4 LE jobs and am currently a federal agent.

            I withdrew from testing from a agency that I couldn't make the drive to. The HR laddy was actually happy that I called her so she could remove me from the list, she told me reapply again if you would like in the future.

            That shows more integrity instead of being a ' no show' and them having to call out your name, then nobody responds then marking you off.

              I withdrew from several agencies when applying. Most of the time it was a schedule conflict. I even withdrew when in backgrounds with one agency, which made my current agency feel I really was dedicated to them and that's when they picked me up.

                Withdrawing under the circumstances you describe is not grounds for DQ in the CA agencies I have done backgrounds for.

                However with that said, it strikes me that you reasons for dropping out seem a little odd. The hiring process in California takes a long time. You would have been well out of probation in your first two jobs before the hiring process was complete. Similarly, why would you apply a third time if you knew taking that job would pose a financial hardship?

                My point here is that in doing your background, I would ask a few extra questions about your decision making ability, how well you thought things through, your maturity level, impulse control, etc.

                  This is the long version of what I was saying. Dropping out of the hiring process 3+ times is not going to DQ you at all but it will raise red flags.

                  Good advice student. However we are not talking about a single occurrence, we are talking about multiple times which is starting to show a pattern.

                  Next time feel free to answer but leave the bashing part out kid.

                    I do like your style though, sometimes people need to have somebody that's real and raw. I think thats where you come into play

                      Man I thought this thread was about another kind of withdrawing. As long as she's not prego you win...
                      "Naw officer, I was hanging with my cousin"

                      "Sooo, real cousin or play cousins ?"

                            I was in the final stages with several agencies and pulled back for one reason or another. Not one of those has caused me any issue. As already noted, most times the agency will understand and takes favor when you tell them vice not showing up. I will qualify this that if you drop out right before a Polly or Drug Screen, they may look at you a little funny; but pulling back due to conflicts or situations that you can support should not be an issue.

                            As for Buffalogirl, ignore her.

                              Whoa, what's going on while I was gone?! User L-1, I dropped out of the first dept as I that was my 3rd day with my trainer at the new job, the second one (2 week difference) I dropped out since I had two department testings on the same day, so after much thought I picked the department that interested me more at that time. The trainer/job was gracious enough to let me be late as I took the pat testing of my choice for the second incident. I just didnt want to push my luck and show I wasnt appreciative for the opportunity and the training that job was giving.
                              As always, I appreciate you fellas for all the input...and do carry on.
