Law enforcement interview questions shared by candidates
A lot of "Describe a scenario when you . . . and then you and then you, and what did you do?"
Multipart questions that make me want to take detailed notes and then draw a logic model. More effective, I think, to say, "We are hoping to have someone in this position who can demonstrate [preferred skill/characteristic/temperament]. Can you provide us with examples of when you had the opportunity to apply these . . . .? One can infer from the question, eventually, but it's tedious.
The questions arnt difficult or unexpected, its the length of the process thats unexpected. You initially come in for a basic interview, and a written test to see if you can count and read. After that you come back for a slightly more in depth interview, and a physical assessment (jumping jacks, running, etc). Beyond that is 2-3 more interviews with advancing levels of management, but at this point they are looking to see if you are a follower or a leader (they want followers).
