I took the test for Police Communications Operator back in 2014. I was recently (finally) called by Lake Success PD for an interview. I went for a second interview and unfortunately did not get the position.

I was told I would be put back on the list to be called for another position elsewhere. Does anyone know how this process will work? Let's say a position opens up tomorrow...will I be next to be called?

Also, generally how long are the lists active for? Any insight would be appreciated.
