  • Group Interview?

    Hey all,

    I have a "group interview" tomorrow with 4 other candidates I just found out today. I have passed oral boards this year but it has only been myself in the room. Have any of you experienced a group interview and can fill me in on what it is like and what it takes to be successful? Thank you!

    TPD I presume? Having been through their process including both oral boards I could write something out, or just copy and paste this accurate advice:

    my one and only experience in the oral board was a group interview.The board moderator will come out and invite everyone in and to take a seat.Try to be the first in line and walk in with your chin up and chest out.Although you remain anonomous throughout the entire interveiw,this is the first impression,and an important one...The moderator will explain the rules for a few moments.He will ask the first person a question and he/she will x amount of time to think of a response and will then have x amount of time to respond.Same question goes around the room till everyone answers,then onto the next question.Few questions are asked in these type of interveiws,because of the time limits vs the number interveiwee's.I was asked 6 total questions.
    The panel will most likely be a moderator + 3 people writting and erasing constantly.Don't let that bother you,that's what they do.The people on the panel for mine were all Chiefs from surrounding municipalities. (Other officers for TPD)
    My advice is [I]try[I] not to restate what another has already said.That was the hardest part,having to think of something new because the guy before me said what I wanted to say.
    Just keep you wits about ya and good luck!!

      it happened almost exactly as you stated with TPD. Hey congrats on your conditional offer from CCSO, that's not easy from what I hear. I applied for CCSO's current recruitment, any advice? Thanks!
