    I too enjoyed the Glen Ellyn marathon.

      I heard only about 140 showed and only about half passed the written. I wonder if there were a lot of no shows, or they didn't get to the 200 applicants they capped it at.

        I know of several people who had a slot and didn't show.

          An officer told me that 71 passed the written and 3 didn't show up to POWER. I personally saw only 1 person fail power... he called it quits after 7 situps.

          Of course you have to factor in the 50 people this upcoming weekend at WIU, but regardless that's a pretty small eligibility list. Especially considering they plan on hiring 2.

            I spoke with 2 officers at the WIU career fair a couple of weeks ago. According to them, all 250 spots (GE and WIU) filled before the ads even hit. I know the WIU test filled within 48 hours of being posted on PSR.


            I will be taking the WIU test this Saturday. Hoping with only 50 spots this won't be an all day affair. I know the biggest pain is taking a physical at the Campus Rec on the weekends, since all the regulars are working out as well.

              They definitely got the 200 applicants that they capped it at. I was one of the no shows lol... go me.

              goodluck everyone!

                The written was called P-2 or something like that. There was memorization, reading comprehension, and decision making problems. It was like no other test I have seen. There was no long division which was nice.

                After the POWER test, they also gave us the long verison of the PSR psych, and a LEAP psych.

                  Just got back from the WIU test. 17 people showed, 11 passed the written. 1 failure during the physical. So 10 of us passed all phases.
                  I also heard 119 showed last week for the written.

                  Good luck to everyone that made it on the list!

                    Wow, 129 is a pretty low turnout actually.

                      I talked to one of my buddies a few days ago and he said there was talk of layoffs. Apparently there are some guys with a couple years on there that were worried about losing their jobs and they were all ****ed because the pd rehired an officer that left years ago. When they rehired the officer they gave the officer their full seniority back so they are in no jeopardy of losing their job and they have all this seniority and people below them after leaving a few years ago.

                        They said they were hiring 2, so that would be weird to be considering layoffs.

                          17 is kinda embarrassing especially considering all you needed to do was be 20 years old....I'm sure Durkin will mention how he brings opportunities to campus that no one takes.

                            As you said, at the orientation they said they were looking to hire 2 with an academy date of April or May, I believe. Should be a pretty quick process, if it's already the middle of November.

                            The officer I spoke with said all 50 spots filled, but all the other people didn't get their paperwork in. I know atleast 1 of the 10 of us that passed all phases made the 3 hour drive from the Chicagoland area just to test. And yea, I'm sure Durkin isn't too happy. I know he works to get as many departments to test on campus as possible. I don't understand why more students don't jump on the opportunity when departments come to test right under their noses. I guess not everyone is as motivated to be hired as well all seem to be on these forums.
