        If we're lucky 4-6 weeks!

      Just out of curiosity, any other girls on this thread who applied and interviewed last week? Just wondering how many of us made it through to interviews and are awaiting news.

      Also, (question for everyone both M and F) what was everyone's PAT times? It would be interesting to know a general range and average. I'm sure if it came down to 2 "equal" candidates other qualification wise they might go with faster time.

      Mine was 7:30 exactly. Probably should have been 10 sec or so faster but totally forgot at end that we were running around last cone and back to weapon fire. Lol, I ran straight through and they were all yelling at me to run back and sit down.

        OverFWC 30-40 per day. Not even close I had at least 20 people during my PAT test. They would’ve extended the application window if they had so many few candidates. Typically in the past they would receive upwards of 2000 applications so maybe that’s what the officer was referring to as fewer candidates.

        That’s literally what he said “We had expected a larger turnout. We have only had 30-40 people come through each day”.. maybe he wasn’t sure what he was talking about.

        I was just interested in gathering a range/average of PAT times that were scored in this forum. Obviously, in hiring more priority will be placed on the interview, qualifications (college degrees, prior LEO/military, etc.), background investigations, etc. I think what most of us are getting at is that if it came down to 2 candidates with same interview score, roughly same qualifications, good background standing the PAT could be something used to determine which candidate to select (faster time generally correlates to fitter candidate).

        And 30 to 40 could be correct, during my time at all 3 locations (pool, PAT, and academy for interview) I probably saw at least 30 different individuals. Mind you, all 3 of those activities only took me maybe 2.5 hours. Arrived for swim test @ 0915 and was completed with interview by @ 1145/12. If they were truly running testing/interviewing from 0800 to 1600 everyday I'd assume more came through.

        But who knows? We can only speculate on what we've heard. Best to just sit tight and see what happens.

        This is 2021- the minimum standards have been lowered nationwide, to allow agencies to hire based upon their "diversity goals", as opposed to hiring based upon an applicant's ability to actually do the job. So being born female, not white, and/or choosing to pursue the act of homosexuality, are going to count MUCH more than your written exam score or your PAT...

      Yeah there are a lot of military and Leo’s when I went there were 3 guys I was talking with who are prior LEO and certified like me.

      the bad thing about the interviews were we were all being judged by different people. Also you never know the mood the officers were in, were they burnt out irritated or what. Interviewing a few hundred people would suck.

        I feel like a psycho. I check my emails at least 10 times a day waiting for some kind of notification. Then I realize it’s only been a week

            Thanks for the info, was it a phone call that we should all be expecting or did they need something from you specifically?

        • #84
          Trueblue98 something pertaining to me, but the person I spoke to did confirm on a January academy. Also all of us that pass the interview phase will be put into the background/psych phase. I guess both will be completed before a conditional offer. At least according to who I spoke with.

            I wish I knew how far along the current class was and when they we’re hon going to be done. If I get hired it would be nice to just hop on at the end with them so I don’t have to wait until next July to start agency training.

          Just realized something..was anybody measured for uniforms? Typically in the past they measured for uniforms right after interviews, but I wasn’t measured.

            Did they really? I know all agencies are different but being a large agency I’m sure they have uniforms in bulk, you just try them on. The only custom fitting I had in my past agency was for your vest, which takes a few weeks to get.

            Yeah if you don’t believe me go read the past forums, but I’ve already talked to a few people that work with the commission and everything being done this year is different than the past.

            Yeah I imagine they are rushing to hire people. I wasn’t saying I didn’t believe you though. I was just stating based of my experience at a large agency in Florida what they did. I’m just along for the ride though, hope to hear something soon.

            Is your conditional contingent on your background too?

            Of course. Conditional is contingent on background and psych. I’m pretty sure today was the first day they started letting candidates know about moving on. This week the rest of you should find out.

              According to the recruiter, they do not and will not call anyone.. They only make contact via email. Also FWC office a stated they do not call. Everyone will be contacted via email.
              For everyone else reading this, FWC will contact you only via email, that was verified through the FWC office and by recruiters.

                I spoke to my recruiter yesterday and also called FWC. Both of them stated they will notify us via email only. They will not make phone calls. I was told this bc my number has since changed since my resume an application was submitted.l back in February. I needed to update them on my new number just in case they called. They then stated they do not call, it will be contact through email.
