      Seems like they take quite a while, I applied in October, and then again in March, just had my interview as you can see. How long did it take to hear back after you’re interview ?

          I was advised, they cannot inform me whether I passed the oral board or not. I was advised I am not able to be notified where I’m at in the process, BUT that my application will be good til February 2020. I’ve experienced some interesting answers when applying to agencies. But this is by far the biggest cliffhanger I’ve experienced. Any word on you’re end ?

                      Probably.

                      From what I gather the hiring is slowing down a little bit for now. Retirements seem to come in waves. Those that were hired in the 80's and 90's are still kicking around but not like it was when I got hired on in the early 2010's.

                      HR likes to hire both jail and laterals in groups. For the jail it is groups of 20-30 and laterals it is usually a group of between 10-15.

                      In terms of those that are hired from the outside we seem to be scraping the bottom of the barrel lately. It is unbelievable some of these guys. For a while when outside hiring was taking place we wanted those with true experience. Now we hire some outright slugs. Please don't be a slug if you want to lateral to OCSO.

                        Man that’s brutal. No I handle approx 20-25 calls a night in the current county I work now. Self initiate when it’s possible, now that it’s cold, there’s more time. But I’m not holding my breath. Several opportunities have started knocking, so I’ve gotta start making decisions.

                          It's still a great department. I would say one of the best in Metro Detroit to work for.

                          Hope whatever it is you desire it works out.
