    msptrooper,

    Only one weekend off a month. To get this you have to work ten days straight. This ten day stretch might go like this 3-11, 7-3, 3-11, 7-3, 7-3, 3-11, 7-3, 3-11, 7-3, 7-3, then four days off including the weekend. It is even better when you work a 3-11 into days off

    Aside from the ten day stretch you usually work 7 or 8 days straight then get a whopping two days off to recover. They are masters at the "art of the double back", i.e. work 7-3 and then back in the same day at 2300 to start a string of midnighters.

    Back in the day I used to have split days off until the union stepped up!

    Up_On_Base,

    Sure, PA starts out new troops at 48k 'something' but you earn every penny of it by working the schedule we work. Naturally, pay is important but shouldn't be the sole determining factor in one's decision. My 2 cents.

    I hope you like to write tickets!!!

    Recruiting is like that, as I believe they are understaffed. Mainly the whole agency is understaffed. Do more with less, so to speak.

    Do a search for MSP here on the forums. A lot of discussion has taken place in the past.

Never did receive the information I was seeking. BUT: I live in another state some distance from MD so that may be why. On the flip side the County Police Depts: Howie, Prince G, Montgomery, and even DC Metro were exceptionally helpfull and friendly in my contacts,plus they do not require an "orientation session" as does the MSP. So needless to say I am going for the above depts (sans the MSP) ,as the recruiter may be giving you an insight into how you would be treated as a member of his/her organization. Maybe I'm wrong, but MSP does not seem very applicant friendly. Hope my information helps you. Good luck in your job search!

    Gardez bien

    I got the exact same impression when I e-mailed recruiting. Kinda turned me off of MSP in all honesty.

    So I applied with Sheriff's Offices (Which were VERY polite and helpful)

    Your mileage may vary
