    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Austin Police Department (Texas) (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    The process has changed considerably since I applied. It still consists of an initial application, very detailed background investigation, physical agility testing, psychological evaluation, medical evaluation, written testing, and an oral board (interview).

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected question was how many African/American friends I have. Not a terribly difficult question, but it caught me off guard as I had never thought of my friends based on their skin color.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There are no negotiations. This employer has a fixed pay and benefits schedule that is not open for negotiations.
