    I was wondering if there were any troops out there who could give me some advice on the Oral board interview. I have already passed all my written test and background investigation. My interview is schedules for Sep. 30 and I'm a little anxious about the interview even though all the troops I know tell me not to even worry about the interview.... Any help on first real interview?

    Thanks

    you have to just be honest in everything they ask you. your just selling yourself, so it shouldnt be hard.

    think before you speak.

    its good to know the dps chain of command, divisions in the department, and maybe a little history of the department.

    remember everything you put on your application, and if you put it on your application, if they ask you the same ??, give the same answer.

    where are you testing?

          Waco

          I interviewed in Waco on the 9th of September, not sure how it went, I left confused yet confident when leaving. Know the components of the physical agility test (bench press, run, etc...) Not going to let you in on the other questions as it may compromise the intergrity of the board, plus we are sort of competing against each other . It's not that bad at all really, although I think one of the troopers went to sleep after he interviewed me... Any questions don't hesitate to PM or reply.

                    Ha Yea I guess we are competing with each other, however I do believe there is going to be room for several good applicants . But Yea i understand where you are coming from. I'm really not too worried, I've been schooled by several troopers in my area and in waco. I just resently finished an internship with DPS and I also work in a County Jail. I was just trying to see if I could get new info on the board. And like I said in my first post, this will be my first real interview. So you are applying for 09 academy also right?

                        09

                        Yep I am going for the 09 academy, congrats on the internship, I tried and got accepted to the academic internship and was told that I couldn't do it because I was not enrolled in an academic class at Baylor. Oh well. Like I said it's not too bad, just wear a suit, make eye contact, and answer the questions.
