Experienced officer application

Postby Barney1 » Sat Oct 30, 2010 2:03 pm

I was hoping someone could help me out with something. I currenlty have an application in with the OPP as an expericence officer. I am waiting for the interview date and was wondering if anyone knew what I could expect in regards to what the interview was like?

It depends how much time you have on as a PC which determines which type of interview you get. And yes, I am speaking from experience.

The background is pretty thorough. I was interviewed for a guy I know who tried to lateral over. Wanted me to describe his drinking habits and whatnot.

FWIW, when I was in Orillia updating my MMPI-2, there was TPS constable doing a lateral interview. The walls were pretty thin, and it sounded pretty intense. The officers conducting the interview sounded like they were hammering him on a few situations.

Thanks for responding. I just hope my own service doesn't find out. We are pretty small. They just my institute a new position for me -- dog sanitation expert for the parks.

The interview i did for experienced wasnt too bad PM Me for some insight.
Be professional and methodical. Take ownership of the situation. Look, listen and understand what is really being said and you will never have to walk away from an incident wondering if you missed something. Make every contact with the public count.

Mine was frankly pretty tough, but I heard after talking to others that it really depended on who conducts the interview. It was a pretty standard interview with a big focus on police-related stuff (your work history and training etc), including a knowledge portion.
