    Is safe to say that if you are 1337 and you score a 96%, the individuals that are in 1200 scored a 97%, those in 1124 scored a 98%, those in 1107 scored a 99% and those in 1101 scored 100%.

    I scored a 96%, but I have veterans preference and I'm one of the 354 and 4th in my town with only Disable Vets in front. I had a brief conversation with my town HRD and was told that the Mayor is looking to hired 12-16 new officers and about double will be called in. What are some things that I need to know? Since being discharged I have not fully shaved, but I'm assuming I must shave prior to a sit down interview?

    Anyone know how to get something updated? I am an EMT, but it does not say so next to my name.

    6th on my town list, 1824 is my rank.

    Being a cop is mostly common sense stuff. Like should I wear pants today....or is it a good idea to door kick this hippy who is video tapping me.. Should you shave for an interview... Come on devil... That should be a no brainer.

    Contact HR for the cert.

    Ha, that was a stupid question. LOL
    I already knew the answer, but my point/question was/is the do's and don'ts for the job interview.

    I know I'm going to have my resume, HS and College transcripts, reference, social, etc ready, but what else should I have prepare? In addition, the military is all I known so I'm not accustom to job interviews or questions that relate to the job. Was asking for small insights on stuff that I should know to impress and have an advantage.

    They will let you know what paperwork they want from you and should give you enough time to get it to them. Every interview is different with different questions. But I would expect the "why do you want to be a police officer, why this town" and the "what qualities do you bring to the table" . Stay in shape, appearances are important, along with not sucking physically if you get to the academy.

    anyone know if these lists are complete as of now? i know they will be adding in some vets as they take make up tests. the reason i ask is there is only one vet on my towns list currently which seems weird as there is usually 10-15. i am acutally one spot higher on my towns list than i was on the 2013 list. in 2013 i scored 99 and 2015 i scored 86

    guys who scored in the mid to upper 90's, did you only choose strongly agree/strongly disagree on the personality section or did you choose freely?

    Does anyone know how Out of Town Civil Service works, once a town burns through it's list, can they select anyone from the list to interview or do they have to go down the All list in order. I work for a town that has 4 people on its list now but am not a resident, wondering if they will be able to reach me.

    What happens if your residency is in a non CS town?

    I scored low (mid 80's) and I answered strongly agree/strongly disagree. CS must of caught on since the last CS exam, there were hundreds of high 90 scores. and felt like I nailed all the other questions...even had time to double check the 4 that I was pretty sure were correct.
    On another note, my town does not have any female PO's and myself and one other female are on eligibility list. Think this will increase my odd's of getting a shot?

    I used mostly "not sure" but I snuck in a #3 pencil, so I got a 100.

    On general, how long does it take for the entire hiring process?

    There should be an academy between Feb and May and wanted to see how soon they will start calling potential candidates.

    Departments vary, but on average I believe it is a couple months. I think the longest portion is the background investigation and how thorough the investigator is. Then there is the PAT, the interview, paperwork..etc. I was contacted in December and was in an academy in February.

    Two different organization, two different requirements. State Police have their own exam every couple of years but have recently been picking off last cycles CS exam.

    To all our vets, hope you guys had a great day, enjoyed the free food and received the thanks you guys deserve. THANK YOU!

    I had a couple of questions, can you be on the top of the list and not be called in??? In other words, can the township skip you and hire someone lower on the list because of their relationships?

    Also, are PAT courses avail to the general public or candidates???? I wanted to see my time and practice/train for it? BTW, Im on westernmass.

    PS Where can I find information about age and passing times for each PAT event?

    The town cannot skip you without cause. If they try to pass you by for someone else, you will certainly find out about it. One of the positives of civil service.

    PAT courses are not available to the public. It is a piece of cake, not to worry. Unless things have changed, you will have a practice opportunity and then a week later you will take the actual test.
