  • Oral Board

    Just curious if anyone has taken Bellevue's oral board test? Is it as difficult as some say? The scenarios, are they pretty much just common sense?

    Thanks,

    Bug

    Not really more difficult, per se. Most of the scenarios are common sense, you'll get some "what have you done to prepare for law enforcement" questions...Not too hard.

      equinox137,
      Do you have any more specific examples?

      bugaboozie,
      It says that you are already sworn. Where are you working now and what brings you to Bellevue?

        A small town in Iowa. To Bellevue? Well, bigger and better things, more advancements etc. Who wouldn't want to better themselves if they could?

          equinox137,
          You said earlier that you had your oral board on the 23rd. How did it go?

            I actually did it today (I had to reschedule). Pretty much went the same way it did last year, instead they held it in a conference room as opposed to the City Council chambers. I should know sometime next week.

              Well, the oral board must have thought I was ok. I'm supposed to go to the BPD to pick up my background packet.

                Do you have a degree? Just curious how many times you have applied with Bellevue?

                  No, but I've almost finished it.

                  This is the first time that I have applied.


                  How about yourself? How many times?

                    Congrats. I never heard back from them, so I guess I'm out again.

                      They said that they'd call either this week or the next so you may not be out.

                          Heard from the Lt. today... I'm not out

                          They're not starting a background on me yet as they've got others to do (such as yours) for only one possible position....

                            We actually have a guy leaving our department on the 23rd going over to the Corning Iowa. We have posted in the local paper, but are only hiring certified.
