    16hrs a week, Sunday and Monday? Lol ok sure. You mean you want someone to work the days the boss doesnt want to?

    The qualifications they are seeking place that person in a full time police or military related career field. Those jobs dont usually allow for part-time work.
    They’re looking for someone who is over-qualified for the offer they are making. Most people who have those qualifications will be looking for a job with more to offer to the potential candidate. I’m not giving up Church, Football and my one day off to work at a gun range and deal with clueless people just wanting to play Army for a day.

    Sure, it’s a foot in the door, but that’s a lot of Qualification/hoops to jump through. All for the chance to maybe move on to the next phase, and just maybe get selected for the position!…
    …and work 16 hrs a week!
