I have been working at City of Olathe full-time (More than a year)
Easy going. Fun place to work. Lots of extra money to be made if you take the overtime
People that don't like to work. Just there for a paycheck
I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at City of Olathe (Olathe, KS).
First I had to pass the physical agility test to move on to the next stage. Then I had to complete a writing sample before going into my interview panel. After that was the psychological written test that takes about four hours to complete and gets sent off to get scored. Then it's an in person psychological interview for a few hours. I had a polygraph and background check completed and then had a meeting with the chief of police who offered me a conditional offer of employment, contingent on the physical exam to follow.
