So I just have a general question that more or less relates to judgement, but I wanted to get some input. I am a senior in college out of state and am dying to get on back home in MA so I applied as a special in my town. This was back in August and I haven't heard anything. Any thoughts on whether or not I should call to inquire, or would the department call me if they were truly interested in putting me on? Thanks for the advice in advance :D

Re: How long do I wait before I call to check on an applicat

Well, its been about 2 months since you sent in the application. It could mean thre things:
1)they are not interrested
2) they are still acepting applications
3)they are not hiring at the moment

I say give them a call and inquire. Its OK do ask once in a while. Just don't pester them.
good luck

Re: How long do I wait before I call to check on an applicat

I too put in an application into Marblehead as a Aux. in august and as far as I know they are looking. :oops:

I still got Manchester Aux. and Boxford Aux. sitting on my desk. I might as well trash Boxfords cause the Lt. in charge over there basicly wants you to have 10 years as a cop under your belt...........................If I did I would have started at the ripe ole' age of 10! :shock:

I still havent made it to Haverhill or Somerville to apply as a Aux. But sometimes I wonder why I bother. :(

I've heard you should wait at least an hour, or you could get a cramp...

As long as you have a clean record you have a good chance on getting on. I was an Haverhill Aux for a while, now I'm FT for the city. Their Aux is volunteer, which mean you dn't get paid, but if you are looking for a foot in the door, its a good place to go.
Stop by the station any Sunday morning from 9-12 ask to speak to the Auxiliary. or call the station and leave a message.978.373.1212.ex133
or drop me a PM I have nothing to do with hiring, but good friends with the AUX's SGT and LT. Plus I can answer any questions you may have specificly about HAPD
