When I applied (years ago), the process started with an interview with four Lieutenants. I remember the interview being fairly standard, with some curve balls, but nothing major. I didn't have my PTC at the time, and they were looking to send someone to the Stamler academy. Not sure what they prefer, but when I applied, it wasn't necessary.

I didn't get the job there, but work for a different agency in that area. From what I hear it's an okay place to work, with some drawbacks of course. It's a very wealthy community, with a thriving downtown, so there's a decent call volume. Good luck.

Anyone have any idea what is going on they advertised the opening, Chief Retired, new Chief made and nothing. It would seem as if they have more openings now due to promotions? They also took the payment to apply over 6 months ago, if you will not be hiring refund the payments...
