    Just wondering if your former employers are from another state do they call them instead since they can't do face to face? Also will that count against you since others applying I'm sure have former employers that are local?

    You know to tell you the truth we haven't run into that issue. Out of state employers would have to be contacted by phone and it would not be held against you. We have sent people up to 3-4 hours away to talk with neighbors, employers and references. I happen to think it is a big waste of time and money but thats what the city wants. Our process is also pretty much the norm in the Palm Beach/Broward area.
    If your going to cry about doing the job you signed up for do us all a favor and quit, there are plenty of dedicated people standing in line for the best job in the world.
