    Police Officer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at New York Police Department.

    Interview

    The inexperienced, fresh out of college "psychologists" are absolutely atrocious at what they do. They omit their e-mail address and purposely shut their phone-lines down by never answering the phones whenever they are getting too many calls. One psychologist even shot her husband in the head and yet that type of useless garbage is conducting the oral psychological...? The nypd can't even deny some candidates and try their best not to give a psychological dq since the nypd knows it will lose in court. The entire psychological department needs to be purged, it did not just begin with Archibald.
