    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at New York Police Department.

    Interview

    The inexperienced, fresh out of college "psychologists" are absolutely atrocious at what they do. They omit their e-mail address and purposely shut their phone-lines down by never answering the phones whenever they are getting too many calls.

The nypd can't even deny some candidates and try their best not to give a psychological dq since the nypd knows it will lose in court. The entire psychological department needs to be purged, it did not just begin with Archibald.
