Wait…he’s too normal? Gotta say, I’ve never heard of that before.  No worries though!  Something will come along and you two will be just fine. Keep trying for a better job for hubby!

That’s mad. Poor you, he must be very frustrated by that! Don’t fret, it is a setback, but as they say, What’s for ya won’t go by ya. Something better could be on its way right now! Chin up!

My bf has been thru that process so many times with different police departments … I know what you are going thru! After 3 years he finally got an offer, after placing in the top % of so many before (which never hired or hired just 1 etc. with budget cuts). You definitely deserve to be frustrated!! No one really understands until they go thru the insane process. Much luck to you both – things will change hopefully very soon!!

This same thing happened to my son and was sooooo shocking to all of us!  It’s kind of bizarre how one person’s interpretation can cancel out all of the other positive tests/tasks he’s passed!!  You should check into protesting the results….I’ve heard that he could be re-evaluated by another psychologist and retake the exam…I’d definitely fight this one!   Two weeks after my son failed the psych exam he was offered a job at a fire department he had applied for at the same time.  Sometimes when a door closes, another one opens!  Good luck to you both, I know how sad/shocked you must feel…and he should be able to re-apply in 2 years if that’s any consolation, or start over at another sheriff’s department or for even a city police job.

@wbninja:

Thanks! People tell you to keep your chin up, but you know what? It just sucks.

I think it’s crazy that we supporters have to wish for our SOs to get jobs where their lives are on the line every single day. Who wants to wish for that!? But I knew it was what my bf wanted and worked so hard for. He worked 2-3 retails jobs at a time until he got that letter … time after time hearing rumors that “so and so are hiring 15 next year” and it never panning out. It’s a huge slap in the face. It’s all so subjective – the whole process.

I know it doesn’t solve anything, but I really wanted you to know you’re not alone 🙂 Sending lots of luck your way!!
