    Pros

    Summer hours are 6.5 hours of work a day.

    Cons

    Many staff waiting for retirement therefore do not want to learn new ways of doing things. Some staff will not do anything outside their job description and very risk adverse. Very political atmosphere.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Ottawa Police Service, Ontario (Ottawa, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Practical test writing component - it was long and tedious, the scoring was very subjective. I would have preferred an objective test
    Panel interview component - 3 person panel, two civilian personnel, one sworn officer
    Both interviews left a sour taste.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral - need to say the correct buzz words - you are scored on these words   Answer Question
