If all goes well with the testing the interviews should start as soon as the 31st.

Here's a few tips for people participating in the testing.......

1. Dress appropriately - suits and ties not necessary but put some effort into it. I wore business casual - nice dress pants, blouse and a suit coat. Not fancy, but professional. Jeans and flip flops just don't make the grade. Even better, at my testing some dude looked like he was sporting a "Flock of Seagulls" hair do. :dubious:
2. Bring all your documentation that they ask for.....first aid certs, dilpomas, resumes, essay (if essay required this time around). 3-4 people got turned away at the testing just based on that alone.
3. Be punctual. Its an obvious thing, but some people just don't get the obvious.
4. Parking is $20 flat daily rate on upper campus - so be prepared to pay that, unless you can find the lower campus lots which go for $5/day.

Good luck to those who are testing.

If all goes well with the testing the interviews should start as soon as the 31st.


Ooohhhh, I'm working days that day...interesting! :smirk:

For any who haven't already checked here are some maps.

The cheaper parking in our "west/lower campus" does have access to a free shuttle bus up to the main campus.

There are 6 persons being interviewed Monday, August 31, and the decision made after the last interview on that day.

Oh great! So the candidates will be running down the road screaming in fear before we even interview them. :roll: Just like we taught you not to damage the doors (the 600 lbs steel ones!!!! :cry: ) don't bend, break or otherwise damage the candidates! :twitch:

The Hamilton Police Service has poached another one of our full time members and he leaves mid December. I anticipate he will be replaced by one of the present part time members and that will in turn open a spot for another P/T spot. When I know more I will post something.
