    Sorry I mispoke guys. 152 made the list. I am not 100% sure , but I think five people interview for each position. Plus I have been told alot of people do not
    pass the psyc exam in Chicago . Good luck to everyone .

    They don't generally interview many more than they are planning on hiring. If you were scheduled for the second interview, you have a VERY good chance of getting hired. There is a somewhat high failure rate at the psych exam, but usually because of valid background concerns.

    The top ten guys should be interviewed soon, and they will go from there. If you get an offer after the second interview, you will then have to go to Chicago for a psych exam. Typically, less than 40% of the people who go to the psych actually pass it and get hired.

    Last list they hired 10 or so guys, and they interviewed into the 50's on the list to hire those ten. Good luck guys. I will try to check in on here every couple days so if you have questions post 'em up.

    Thanks for the info. I think you hit the nail on the head with what most people wanted to know for now. I guess if you hear what applicant position they are interviewing and when. That would be cool to find out for us deeper on the list if you could keep us up to date.

    Thanks for the info. and good luck to all.

    Regards,

    Patio. Applicant# 60

    @ Hewartson 47

    Did they mention when you guys who had interviews last week would be notified if you were going to move on to the next step? Just curious when the Psyc exams would be sceduled for those who may have passed the chiefs interview, and how long that step in the process takes. Also I don't know if this came up , but was a date or goal given of when the chief would like to have the process wrapped up for selecting the 8 canidates to be hired?

    Appreciate any info you could pass along.
    Thanks

    Sorry, but they didn't mention anything and I haven't been contacted since. I keep nervously checking my e-mail and the mailbox, but no news yet.

    Just an FYI for those on the list, the Chief mentioned that the city is considering applying a residency requirement to hires off this list.

    Hi Hewartson, for this rumored residency requirement.... I am a out of city / state applicant. Would be still be considered for the postion and just be requried to live within the City's district upon start of employment?

    Thanks,

    Patio.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about. It was just mentioned that they were considering instituting a residency requirement for hires off this list...it may not even happen. If it does, I'd guess they would require you to establish residency within a certain amount of time (6 or 12 months) after hire. I also live well outside the BC area and as far as I know am still being considered.

    Have you heard anything about your next step? Or when they plan on having people hired on by?

    I have not been contacted since my interview, so I'm not really sure what my status is. I spoke with the clerk's office about two weeks ago and all they could tell me was that "HR is doing backgrounds". Wish I could tell you more...

    If residency does happen, rumor is it will be required 6 months after completion of probation. Stay tuned guys, you'll be hearing something shortly.
