    I lived it.....I applied for a seasonal position back in the days before electricity. I smoked the PT test (I had just gotten out of the Army) and scored a 98 or 99 (can't remember which) on the written test. When the phone didn't ring, I knew it was the Yarmouth PD.

    And that, boys & girls, is one of the reasons why civil service is useful. It makes nepotism inconvenient and costly, which is at least somewhat of a deterrent.

    I know a few people there that were in lower cape departments before going to Y.P.D. They are all very happy with the place and they have been there for more than 5 yrs.

    Is it really that bad? Seeing that kills a lot of hope.

    Yes, it is really that bad.

    Between politics and the allowing of self-sponsoring (which is a HUGE mistake IMO), you're pretty much fucked if you're a non-veteran without the full MPTC academy and no connections.
