    Interview

    The interview with the investigator was really straight forward. They want to know about you and want to hear the truth. They will find out otherwise. Just be honest and the interview shouldn't last very long.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at New York Police Department.

    Interview

    The inexperienced, fresh out of college "psychologists" are absolutely atrocious at what they do. They omit their e-mail address and purposely shut their phone-lines down by never answering the phones whenever they are getting too many calls. One psychologist even shot her husband in the head and yet that type of useless garbage is conducting the oral psychological...? The nypd can't even deny some candidates and try their best not to give a psychological dq since the nypd knows it will lose in court. The entire psychological department needs to be purged, it did not just begin with Archibald.
