    I have been working at LAPD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Diverse assignments, really busy, extremely professional, great training

    Cons

    The system is not fair, and people connected to command staff face different discipline. Too many special events that are covered by on-duty officers that should be done on overtime. This depletes patrol officers and makes it dangerous in the field due to low deployment.

    Advice to Management

    Have more respect for your employees and occasionally leave your office so you can be in touch with what officers have to contend with day in and day out.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at LAPD (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Show up, wait in a room, and then finally interview. The Interview is a panel of three people. Two supervisors: detectives or sergeants. There is also a HR person there.
