    I worked at Will County Sheriff's Office full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Will County Sheriff's Office has a number of truly dedicated and competent line officers and supervisors. There is opportunity for growth and specialization within the organization, and the geographic differences within the county allow to police in both rural and urban environments. There are also great opportunities within the correctional field for this organization as well.

    Cons

    One of the biggest issues effecting the Sheriff's Office, is the amount of internal politics at play, in addition to the partisan politics always present when your leader is an elected official. In addition, budgetary and funding issues have been, and will continue to be a major obstacle in starting new initiatives, and in maintaining current staffing levels.

    Advice to Management

    Although there are many good leaders within the Sheriff's Office, internal politics is a destructive element that strains morale, inhibits efficiency, and creates an atmosphere in which the agency strains to access its' full potential.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Will County Sheriff's Office in September 2008.

    Interview

    Redundant, generic testing with no discussion on salary until interview testing was near completion. Indepndent group doing testing; appeared that this testing was a formality to weed out the mass applicants. Experience was only a consideration near the end of the testing process.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Lack of sufficent wages and relocation requirements. Benefit package did not start until satifaction and completion of probation period.
