i use to work for them. it is a stepping stone. i was only there for 8 months and left for another campus police job. the pay was very low. when the kids are there it can be an interesting place. when i was leaving a new chief came in and nobody liked him. he seemed to micro manage everything. good luck. :roll: 8)
Im going to chime in on this one since the mud seems to start flying.
I dont know the chief personaly over there but from what I hear he is on the side of the officers.
He has been sucessfull in fighting for alot of the things (Details, Higher Pay, Ect) that the officers wants, and he seems to be pro police. And has done some good things for the SSPO community by having in-service training at his facility.
no offence but from what I know about the guy, hes more of a leader than some other college's have.
It amazes me that people so quickly throw negative opinions out there that could affect someone's job future. For every job out there, you can find employees who like the job and those who hate it, those who get along with everyone, and those who swear fellow employees or superiors are assholes. I say, let people make their own opinions....let's not try to talk someone out of job interviews....if you do not work at the place, then keep the rumors and hearsay to yourself.
For those who are interested, I had my interveiw yesterday... :roll: ...What a day!
I worked a 9P-7A shift at my regular job. Went home for a couple of ZZZs. Woke up 15 minutes before I was suppose to be there( which is a 15 minute drive away). So I had to call and reschedule( So far a great first impression). I got there early and started to fall a sleep in my car ( needed rest for the 8P-7a shift tuesday night). So I went in 45minutes early to help stay awake ( but only sat there looking like a $0.50 pile of Sh#$ in a $400 suit)
My time came to go into the interveiw. Expecting a "typical" interveiw:
1)tell us alittle about yourself
2) what do you know about our...
3) Why do you want to be an officer for...
4) several no win scenirios
They jumped to #3 which I totally tripped over ( due to little sleep), and gave the wrong answer, which i knew sounded stupid the minute it left my mouth! :evil: but, i tried to make the best of it.
Anyways, At the end of the interveiw I got the "you know the way out?." Which is code for " don't let the door hit ya, where God split ya."
Hopefully I didn't do as bad as i thought :?
LESSON TO BE LEARNED TO THOSE HAVING INTERVEIWS:
GET YOUR SLEEP! :!:
Excellent point though. You often hear people gripe about places they either know very little about or they had a bad experience. Try to get a "pool" of opinions not just one. Usually you'll hear a guy say "I worked there, it sucked"... not the "I got driven out because I kept screwing up". Get back-ups to these opinions.
That's why there are 7 Justices, because if only one made the decisions, we would all be screwed.
Can't agree w/ u enough. We both have are reasons for our disagreement w/ that certian persons stupid policies and non police related tatics of screwing everybody and anybody he could. Some people on this site will learn in time and I hope it doesn't cost them a law enforcement career. Football chick with all do respect my sources are valid and reliable in regards to that party whom in which we speak. I just hope you watch your back-side and don't get stabbed. :2c: Happy Holidays every-one and stay safe
Thank you all for your concern about my "back." but this "CHICK" will be just fine! I have never had any problems and do not anitcipate any because I work in a professional manner (that includes keeping anything negative to myself...shall I warn you about watching YOUR back since there are alot of people you do not even realize who read these forums. It is not difficult AT ALL to figure out who all of you are by your profiles and comments....the world is a lot smaller than you think!!) But if you would like to think of me as naive and needing your advice to save my law enforcement career, knock yourself out!! Have fun boys!!!
Hey I was trying to help a fellow P.O., but if your gonna have that attitude whateva. :NO: Personally I don't care who is on this site because I tell the truth. If your a cop and you can't handle the truth :BE: Goodluck to u
Feel the love! As for Merrimack and wherever suebosox works, EVERYONE needs to watch their back. Being "professional" and not making negative comments are NOT enough to save you from the evils that men (and women) do. If you really feel that way then there is more to worry about than being naive!
