    Hiring process- fast and furious. New budget just approved for 36 new officers over the next year. if you are interviewing this week, then they are hiring for the academy that starts in Oct.

    Morale- The dept has some GREAT people working there. Morale for the most part is pretty good as far as I can tell (still a new guy).

    Training- Excellent training. Period. Above and beyond what I expected.

    If you have any other questions about the process feel free to PM me. It hasn't been that long since I went through the process.

      Well I had my interview today and man was I in the hot seat. I almost felt like I was giving a speach to a small group of people. It went pretty good though but I will be hugging my cell phone for the possible phone call this evening for selection.

        i got an odd letter from them saying they'll let me know if they want to interview me... and strangely enough they sent my resume back and said they don't want any resumes or attachments at this point.... i thought they'd want to know as much about you up front as they can find out in order to decide if they want to interview you...... STRANGE STUFF

          That is one odd thing about the dept. They don't want any attachments with applications. They find out all the info they want on you when they do your BG and with several history forms. You may however bring a resume to the interview and they will incorporate it into questioning you.

          As 1TYME said, they definitely put you in the hot seat. It was the most stressful oral board I've ever had.

                    does anyone have any estimate on how many people they're going to hire this time around? i'd rather not make the 45 minute drive to take the application if it's one of those deals where there's 150 people testing for 2 openings that'll ultimately be filled by people already post certified :-/

                        we are hiring 9 or 10 last I heard. Why don't you just mail in the application? you have till next friday at 4 p.m. to get it in. As a side note, we actually hire a lot more people that are not already POST certified than those who are.

                          the newspaper said 9/19 but the mboro website says NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER 4:00 P.M., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2008.

                              Hiring Freeze?

                              JCT,

                              I just wanted to see if you had any information about the hiring freeze?

                              I know that they had the employment announcement up for last month and I got my application in.

                              I thought that since I had not heard anything that I was not chosen for the interview...But today I received an e-mail stating that they are on a hiring freeze and that my application will be active for 6 months from the deadline date of the hiring announcement.


                              Just wanted to see if you had any information that you could share with myself as well as all of those that have put in their application
