    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at City of Reno (Reno, NV).

    Interview

    Application, typing test of 45wpm required, written exam that is computer based (tests multi tasking and decision making skills along with map reading and general dispatch duties, very easy), panel interview of 3 or more people including trainers and management, if selected complete background package including finger printing and FBI check (very long!), psych eval, physical exam, polygraph (lie detector), if you make it through all of this then you will be offered a position, pay is non negotiable. Overall process can take as long as a couple weeks to several months. Some people made it through in a month, mine took about 9 months to get position from the time I applied

    Interview Questions

    • You hear a co-worker curse or be extremely rude to a caller and then hang up on them. What would you do?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Zero negotiation. Base pay is set. Yearly raises if performance evaluation is satisfactory. Everything is seniority based
