    Police Detective Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Chicago Police Department.

    Interview

    One achieves the rank of Detective by way of competitive exam and a prior history of exemplary work experience. There is, of course, a progression through the ranks and everyone starts out as a Probationary Police Officer before moving on to the status of Police Officer. All promotions accrue from that base.

    Negotiation

    There was no entry interview, as such, when I was hired. One applied for the job and then took an exam. I would recommend that applicants be educated and literate.
