    I know you wanted this opportunity, but don't beat yourself up over it. It seems like that personality test eliminated a good amount of people from the process.
    Congrats man! That's good news for both of you guys. If I remember correctly they said 8-10 a year for two years usually get hired with sometimes more or less. You'll have a very good shot as I'm sure you know.

    Yea rough one for sure but I guess the best advanced. Hope you get it, keep us updated.

    I still haven't received any information on whether I passed or failed the personality test. Anyone on here receive anything that said they passed and what the next phase is?

    That makes sense. Thanks for the input.

    Hey there guys. Sorry to hear about the test results, that really sucks. I haven't gotten an email yet saying that I passed or failed. I'll take that as a positive sign, but you never know. They may be sending more out tomorrow.

    MPB, I've seen you active on other threads so it sounds like you're hitting up a lot of departments. Eventually the persistence will pay off. I've now been testing for over two years and haven't even gotten past an interview yet, and I usually have a decent spot on the list.

    Anyways, I'll let you guys know when I hear something.
    I've been testing since I graduated last May. I'm just starting to score higher on lists especially ones that use the NCJOSI test but this one was a major bummer.

    That should be a good sign that you haven't heard anything back yet. Hopefully you passed that exam. Keep us updated.

    That's a rough one for sure. I was far up there on that list too. Those personality tests are brutal, good thing most departments don't use this type or I might be going back to school for something else.

    DaBears29, how'd you do?

    Guys don't worry about it. That's just one department. There are many more departments out there. Good luck.

    I failed it. Looks like I dont have the personality to be a P.O even though I have been one over a year...

    Got an e-mail back.

    Looks like I failed the personality test and am now out of the process.

    Anyone know the trick to passing this type of personality test? Being honest seemed like it wasn't good enough to pass.
