    "Is the department on 8 or 12 hour shifts?"

    Really does it matter.. If it did you should have checked into this before paying for you application. FacePalm!

    If I was the officer I would've responded "no, just the ones that want to be police officers"

    Best question I heard at an orientation once: "Does everybody have to pass firearms in the academy"?

    The Officer took a few moments to respond....

    Bench press should be 100% of your body weight. No exceptions, no excuses, no spotters.

    Yeah that kinda stinks. However I did notice 2-3 in particular at the test that I could definitely see keeping up with the guys.

    In all honesty though, before beginning to apply to become an officer, I had no idea so many women tested to be cops. Not being sexist or anything, I just literally had no idea. Kinda cool seeing how many were there today.

    Hahaha. Seriously.

    "Um, is the testing going to take place in this room?"

    I was about to lose it.

    Yeah... He totally ignored me, as to not make it obvious that I practically have the job. I mean you know, nbd.

    They get pretty far on the list too, usually towards the very end. Last test they had was about 3 years ago the chief said.

    They're doing the oral interviews for the top 50 candidates. Looking forward to my results to see where I placed.
