    Does anyone know how many positions durham has and if its really worth my time.

    How much is your time worth? I really don't understand this question. Either you want the job or you don't, thus you either apply or you don't.

      Well Future they are hiring at this time Salary Range: $33,000.00 - $40,404.00. Here's the link with the job description.

      From what I gather Durham is like any other department, it has it's good points and bad. As far as being worth your time, well I agree with Cobalt what value do you put on your time? As far as my opinion goes, sure Durham would be a good place to apply, I recently did.

        I work for Durham PD and if that is the attitude you are going have then don't apply here. Statements like "worth my time" can guarantee you VERY short interview and "have a nice day" any day of the week here. So I suggest you start over and get it right.

          I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

              My guess is that they have high turnover like any busy city. So as long as you are certifiable by training and standards, and meet the department's minimum requirements, you should apply and see what happens if that's where you want to work.

              I think I understand what you meant, and I dodn't take the "worth my time" comment as negatively as some of the others. If I really wanted to work somewhere that had 3,000 applicants for 3 positions, I wouldn't think it was "worth my time" either, as I wouldn't put myself in the top less-than-one-percent of applicants.

              Kind of like when I applied to doctoral programs. I knew I wouldn't get into the University of Chicago or Georgetown so I didn't bother applying. But I was accepted into Duquesne which was the only program to which I applied.

                I think you misunderstood me, When I stated worth my time it was meant as they only have 13 positions open for the feb 2010 acad and over 250 applicants. Thats what the recruiter told me over the phone. I think you took it wrong, now I have clarified it for you. no disrespect just was a simple question as to what would you do?

                  Fair enough. Take this as your first lesson in articulation and effective communication. If you want to apply for a position in the Durham Police Dpt, then apply. There are no guarantees that you will get accepted. I have sat in some oral review boards and have been surprised more times than I care to remember. If you need something answered specifically then ask. I hold nothing back and you can bet on an honest and accurate answer.

                        I got your point man, just remember to be more to the point next time. Articulation and meaning can cost a position in a heartbeat.

                          What's going on with durham's hiring?

                          Has anyone heard anything back from Durham PD yet? I tested and interviewed about 3 months ago and haven't heard a word. It's not looking good from where I'm sitting

                            No news is good news. If you haven't received a letter in the mail saying you didn't make it then you are still good. For example, I applied in May and they just called last week saying they were almost done with my background.
                            yeah!

                              Yowch! I know the recruiter said that, but wow, that's a long time.
