    DIVISION OF LAW ENFORCEMENT

    Mission Statement:
    Protecting Florida's natural resources and people through proactive and responsive law enforcement services.

    Vision: To be recognized as the leading conservation law enforcement agency in the nation, set apart by strategic vision, clear missions, strong leadership and a professional officer corps.

    Motto:
    Patrol, Protect, Preserve



    ***This will be a panel interview, at least 2-4 other LEO's will be there.


    ***The biggest and most common things they ask in interviews, and things you need to know are...

    1.) Memorize the Mission Statement by heart - 90% of agencies will ask you this.
    2.) Have something prepared to tell them if they ask you to tell them about your self.
    EX: I've Lived in FL a majority my life I love wildlife, my hobbies are the XYZ (you tell them what is not on your resume)
    3.) Why do you want to be a FWC Officer? Wrong Answers are I want to drive fast and get into shootings
    4.) What do you know about FWC? Watch the recruiting YouTube Videos, they are loaded with info
    5.) What does FWC Stand For? Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
    6.) BRING 5 COPIES OF YOUR RESUME.
    7.) Executive Director Eric Sutton is the highest position in FWC.
    8.) Shake everyones hands.
    9.) Its a panel interview so make sure you are looking at everyone when you speak.
    10.) Do not lie. They can usually bend the rules some if they like you. If you lie though I promise you will not get job in the state.
    11.) If you do not know the answer simply tell them you do not know it, but you know where you can find the answer.
    12.) RELAX - The interviews are not bad. just remember to be honest, be professional, yes sir no sir, look them in the eyes, shake their hands and when you leave tell them thank you for the opportunity.
    13.) Don't be afraid to ask a question or two at the end.
    14.) Watch the recruiting FWC you tube videos. they are loaded with information.
    They will ask you, what do you know about the FWC and you better have a better answer than the ride in boats. Talk about how many miles." FWC officers provide wildlife and marine law enforcement services along Florida's saltwater coastline and 37 million acres of land and freshwater."
    15.) They have different units, and which ones are you interested in. (Dive Team, K9, Investigations.......)
    16.) Arrive 10-15 minutes early for your interview if possible.
    17.) If suits are required, make sure you don't look like a soup sandwich.

    If you guys have any other questions let me know.
    ​​​​​​​Even Academy questions.

    Hey y’all, question that one of you may know. I’m assuming when you reserve a time slot that’s for your interview. They’re saying all PATs/swim tests will be conducted prior to know if you qualify to go into the interview. Guess I’m just considering best time to select. I’m assuming if you pick an 0800 time slot you’d have to show up day before to do physical stuff? Or maybe they’re starting Pat testing early at around 0600 or something?

    I’m in Gainesville so will likely be selecting late morning/afternoon slot and just drive up morning of. Just curious if anyone had more insight or has been through this before with a previous application.

      The swim test, PAT test and interviews will all be conducted on the same day. We will most likely report to the pool at whatever time we schedule.

      We will hopefully have more information next week.

    From the email I received it says you will report to there pool at the time you selected. I will be verifying with them next week anyways to make sure. I will also find out if we are wearing suits or not.

      No, hopefully more news by the end of this week once the Captain confirms the dates.

    I’ve gotten an email for PAT/interview sign-ups. Came in last Friday after the initial supplemental apps deadline closed. Has a link that brings you to the same portal the supp app was filled out on only this time you’re picking a day/time for testing.

      Congrats. I submitted my Supplemental on 06/13/21 and didn't receive my scheduling email. I sure hope they plan on processing them between now and Friday. If not I'm gonna be screwed

      Hmm, yeah I’m not sure why some people haven’t received the sign-up email if they’ve submitted their supps. I submitted mine 6/30 and the email came in 7/2 at 17:01 so immediately after the app was initially scheduled to close.

      No, I'm not. If hired, I would be going through basic training academy as well as the FWC specific breakout academy.

    I have received an answer as to why some applicants have received their link to schedule, while others have not. “We are going through the applications and reviewing them by hand, and sending the link out as we go along. Some of the reviewers are starting with those who have submitted their applications first, while other are reviewing the most recent submissions. Its a divide and conquer effort until we all meet in the middle. We will be working on this over the next few business days, as we are trying to get everyone processed as quickly as possible.” So it sounds like the rest of us should be able to schedule here pretty soon.

    Hello everyone ! My first post here. The training center is swamped; they are trying to process everyone as quickly as possible. After i got link to sign up for the interview I called the training center and spoke to Gabrielle to clarify. Even tho we are signing up for "interview time" it IS the last step. Whatever time you sign up for is when you report to the swim test. If u pass that, then the PAT is next. And then the interview. I want to dress in a suit for interview but it sounds like we won't be able to lol

    I am so worried about the swim. I know enough not to drown but it's been well over 20+ yrs since I've done anything remotely close to long endurance swimming. I have been practicing this last week or so and hopefully I can get thru it.

    Are there any specific rules/requirements that anyone knows in ref to the swim test? Are we allowed to do anything and everything just as long as we keep going and complete it? I am alternating between swimming underwater, breast strokes forward, backwards on my back, doggie paddle, etc etc lol

      I prefer side or back. Both are pretty good with saving your legs in my opinion.

      WheelBoss71 I completely disagree with you. You’re basically using nothing but legs to propel you. That little bit of push with your arms doesn’t do much. That scissor kick wears a lot on your quads. But I do suggest sidestroke to people that have a problem with getting winded or problems breathing. But it’s definitely not good for saving your legs at all

      Well, I never said I was a great swimmer. Guess I've been doing it wrong lol!

    I have received my link email to schedule PAT/Interview. Also spoke to Gabrielle and she said that we will all have time to get cleaned up for suit attire. If you are past checkout time at the hotel and cant utilize your own shower they will allow us to shower in the locker room at the academy.
