I phoned the morning the lines opened and got my date and time and phoned PAS afterward and it was just a "clerical error affecting people on one of their mailing lists"

Probably a stupid question but do you just fill in all the info on the Interiew App. Form on your computer and then e-mail it back? i.e. no handwriting involved?? Sorry, but not up to date on this kind of thing!!

Age limit and the Gardai?

Hi all, has anyone any opinion of the age limit rule i.e 35. Will it ever be lifted? Sure I know it was from 26 to 35 a couple of years ago but will they raise it again. The majority of forces in UK including PSNI (age limit 50 I believe?), US and Australia have no upper age limit.
Also is it possible they (Gardai) could (as in other forces worldwide) allow people who have served say 2 years in the reserves a chance to apply to the full time force with no conditions regarding age, within reason! ;-)
Just wondering does anyone have any opinions on the above?

From what i can remember you must give ALL your employment history....

With in reason, i believe there is some stipulation (Read the Form, it should be on it somewhere, unless its changed) on the form about not needing to put down employment details for jobs not lasting longer than 2 weeks or something like that!!

Others Boardsies will confirm, but better to be safe then sorry.

They are not looking for you to fill these scenarios with storys of how you saved the day and are some kind of hero.

Some examples below, but with a caveat attached

*TBH you are better off thinking of scenario's that you know and have experience of because it will be easier to talk about and recall.

achieving high standards?
Could be anything, passing a driving test, studying for college exams, preparing for the actual PAS Interview itself.

making balanced decisions?
Dealing with problems in work etc....

working with others? community or work based
Teamwork..... this one is kind of easy to come up with scenario's so need to elaborate

persuading others and taking charge?
Team Leader, Captain of a football team etc,,,

Use examples from your life, trust me this is a much better way to do it, also if you read the scenarios they give a short synopsis including the key values they are looking for, just have a good think about it and you will come up with times when you have used them.

Make sure you have an example of how you would apply all the scenarios to life in AGS.

And have plenty of backups ready, usually its good to have 2 extra just in case.

Final point would be DO NOT LIE, they will sniff it out and unravel you in the interview.

They have interviewed 100's of candidates so they know when your telling lies.

*All the above is just my opinion, but it worked for me.

P.s Sorry about the long post!!!

Should an example of how these skills could be used in AGS be included in text on the actual Interview Application Form, or should we just keep this in mind for verbal communication at the interview?

Silly question? Probably. I just want to make sure I dot all my is and cross every t.

Don't put it on the form, but they will ask you about it during the interview.
