    Pros

    Outstanding training, pay, benefits, retirement. With seniority can work in any location in California. Lots of opportunities besides road patrol, motorcycle, air ops, commercial, dignitary protection, academy instructor, etc.

    Cons

    Road patrol assigned to an Area Office is the best of all the jobs but the Department needs to increase hiring. The field is unable to provide the level of service we are known for.

    Advice to Management

    You're not listening to the field re critical staffing levels. Divisions, HQ, Capitol, academy fills every vacancy by taking a uniform position from the field. The only true critical position is an officer working a beat. Send the officers back to the road. HQ & the others need to learn how to work lean.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CHP (West Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    Two interviews, first with my supervisor and manager. Second with my supervisor and the Captain. We met in the conference room, and there were two interviewers in each interview. The atmosphere was very casual and conversational.
