I was just wondering what other municipal departments promotional processes consist of? Especially small non civil service towns. What hoops do they make you jump through in your town?
We in Los Angeles have a similar promotional process.stinghornets43";p="58783 said:The non-civil service department that I work for, has the following process:
* Written exam (100 questions developed by an outside agency with a passing score of 70%)
* Seniority Points (10 points for each year of service with the department with a max of 100 points)
* Written Evaluations (completed by sgts. and lts., on a scale of 1-100)
* Oral Interviews (conducted by Chief and various others, on a scale of 1-100)
An eligibility list is established with the following percentages:
Written exam - 60%
Seniority - 10%
Evaluations - 15%
Oral Interviews - 15%
Overall passing score for the eligibility list is 65. If you fail at any point in the process, you are eliminated.
Hopefully this lengthy example is helpful.
