Is there anyone who wants to prep for the Panel interview and discuss things.
@kiwiwings- was your panel interview competency based mate? would you mind sharing the feedback you got? or if you wanna send me a DM thats fine too.
That was a good idea so we can prepare before the panel interview. Would you mine to share info if you have some.😁
Sorry for the delay, yes it was competency based, fairly quick (around 40 minutes) and they ask you scenario based questions surrounding the competencies. Unfortunately Ive been racking my brains trying to remember an example question but just cant remember. Hope this helps at least a little

So, the Winnipeg Police judges competencies based on hypothetical scenarios/roleplays? Not the typical STAR format?

or was it a bit of both! I'm so nervous for both the physical and the written tests coming up!!!

@tornelco:
all the best with the written and the PAT.

they shouldn't be too difficult.

for the written test material covered in the police prep should help a lot. Keep an eye out for time. Also, some of the test booklets may be wrongly marked by previous test takers despite recruiters reminding not to mark them. Stay away from the selected wrong answers.

For the PAT, The agility run is designed to gas you out unless your freakishly fit- the last 2 laps for me was challenging, but its your mind that you have to calm and keep up the pace in the last two laps. an average of 20-25 seconds per lap is what they will recommend. Even with an avg of 23 secs per lap-one should be fairly able to complete the times portion within 4 mins. dont slow down during push and pull- sprawls are a beach.

a < 3 : 45 score is awesome and i hear sub 4 is competitive, but dont know how much weight this carries alone as a factor.

All the best again- you can reach out to me for the written portion if you have any doubts.

Meanwhile my physical and written is still 2.5 weeks away! I'm not complaining tho, I need all the cardio I can get before then!! looks like these guys move pretty fast which is nice.

Goodluck on your interview, let us know what its all about.
