    Business Outlook


    • Pay. • Ample time off. • Benefits.


    • Highly stressful and dangerous job. • Very political to the point that senority is kicked to the curb in a lot of instances. • High likelihood that your desired day that you request off will be denied. At least until you improve your senority. • Consistant cancelation of regular days off. Kiss the Holidays goodbye! • Your primary residence must be in Chicago.

      Average Interview

      I applied through college or university. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Chicago Police Department (Chicago, IL) in Jun 2020


      I joined the job fair to talk with the person from the Chicago Police Department. After talking, I applied through the university career development office. I heard back from the CPD after three months, announcing that I am invited to the interview (which was almost a month later)
