    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Metropolitan Police Service (Hendon, England) in February 2012.

    Interview

    very intense, and demanding, you must be focused , professional in appearance and in presentation both physical and verbal, you must be punctual, and demonstrate clear determination to succeed. The interview is very detailed there are different scenarios which will be shown to you, you must demonstrate that you are fully awake and ready for the tasks, time is also against you there are no prompting just role plays, these are designed to see how well you cope under pressure and also if you can self micro manage your own day to day tasks.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Metropolitan Police Service (London, England) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Assessment Centre numerous exercises to test aptitude. Nothing too rigorous. Testing resilience , rise to the challenge and honesty and integrity. Testing to display thinking on your feet. Also role plays! The process can be unnerving but if you act normally you will be fine. Policing starts you from scratch don't try and second guess scenarios. They aren't looking for ready made police officers they are looking for the potential.

    It is a massive organisation the importance at assessment is to demonstrate what you know already about policing or what interests you
