OK any of u who came down to my neck of the woods for that test, how did it compare to the MA Civil Circus? what can I expect, i had to wait until after surgery/con leave to take the test.
You never know until you try..... Plus it makes a great vaca if you take it in the summertime.sgtmvm";p="64259 said:Just a word to the wise...coming from a friend who lives in the city but works for Newport News...don't even bother applying to VA Beach unless you are either a veteran or have a Master's in a related field (CJ, sociology, etc.). I've known about a half dozen highly-qualified people, two with more than ten years full-time employment here in the Bay State, who did not make the cut in VA Beach. None of them were vets, and none had anything more than a four-year degree.
That said, it's a department I have considered working for, would actually love to if I knew I could make it, but I just don't bother applying because I know it's a waste of my time without hainvg been on active duty and only have a Bachelor's degree...dare I mention I am getting a little up there in age as well :roll:
Also look into Henrico County Sherrifs Office in Richmond. Probably about a 1/2 hour to 45 min north of where you are now. If your into NASCAR, their the most prominate detail guys at Richmond International Raceway..
