    Pros

    Growth, perks, hours, benefits. Great Chief and ability to grow as an officer. You have many different ways to and options to learn about various units. CALEA approved department. Family feel.

    Cons

    Certain Sergeants and officers are shown favoritism and unfortunately it is the ones with bad values and character flaws. This leaks out into the culture and it affects very negatively. Male to female ratio is big.

    Advice to Management

    Overall the department is great, just the usual political issues. I believe in the Chief.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Oakland Housing Authority in August 2009.

    Interview

    Very basic interview. There were 3 managers on the panel. The questions were something someone went online and printed minutes before I arrived (that's how it seemed). No eye contact and they seemed to be reading the questions on their sheet instead of listening to my answers to the questions.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, they presented their salary and benefits and that was it.
