I applied in-person and the process took 12 months - interviewed at City of Salem Oregon.
Interview Details – Very thorough application, written test (easy) followed by a interview. Interview was supposed to be geared for those without police experience, but clearly was not. Also the interview was clearly biased for those who lived in the area.
Interview Question – Don't remember, but the process has also changed dramatically in the last 10 years. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – None.
I applied in-person and interviewed at City of Salem Oregon.
Interview Details – Not entirely sure of what the current process is, but there is a written (video based last time I saw) a oral interview with usually six questions that they hand to you on cards, a physical, followed by placement on a list. When your spot on the list comes up, a conditional offer is made with a background, medical, psych, etc. Oregon is a no polygraph for employment state, so there is no polygraph.
Interview Question – Usually some scenarios are given, and despite what they say, having a basic knowledge of officer safety, use of force, etc helps. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation.
