    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at City of Reno.

    Application, typing test of 45wpm required, written exam that is computer based (tests multi tasking and decision making skills along with map reading and general dispatch duties, very easy), panel interview of 3 or more people including trainers and management, if selected complete background package including finger printing and FBI check (very long!), psych eval, physical exam, polygraph (lie detector), if you make it through all of this then you will be offered a position, pay is non negotiable.
