Anyone here work for PPD or have any inside info? Just picked up an application today and plan on applying this week. Seems like it would be a very busy dept. from their crime stats and the pay seems to be pretty good.

My girlfriend practacly begged me not to apply there. She goes to college in the area and thinks its a "disgusting" city. I don't know too much about RI except that its expensive to live and people drive with minimal auto insurance. Starting pay seems good.

Pawtucket Posting

RI Civil Service has nothing to do with hiring municipal PO's or FF's, each city/town has their own way of establishing a list to hire off , Pawtucket call theirs the Merit System.

What is the salary scale?? Do you have to move to Pawtucket, or is a boardering town ok. I live on the southern Mass boarder, and am about 30 minutes from Pawtucket...don't want to move again...LOL.

says on the packet i got with the app that the pay after 6 months probationary period is $45,949. as for if you or i would have to move there if we got on i am not sure. it just says you have to be a u.s. citizen and have a valid drivers license.

Im heading down last minute on Monday to pick up app., fill it out, and turn it in. I noticed it said "no phone calls" so I was wondering if anyone knows if PPD needs copies of college transcripts, high school diploma, or anything else with app. I will be traveling from North Shore Mass. so I will not have time to travel back to pick up need documents. Any help is appreciated.
