I have an orientation session with the nycdoc in less than a week. I just wanted to know what to expect and what this actually means in regards to the hiring process. Any information will be helpful

I went for my medical on the 18th. Passed. I got for my interview on Monday. Do you have all of your paperwork in order? Make sure you do....that is important for the interview. I just want to hurry and get into the academy.

I just came back from the interview. Make sure you have ALL 4 copies made like they asked. Also, make sure all the papers for the colleges and high schools are filled out. The little boxes at the top of each sheet? Make sure everything is neat and in order cause you have to do even more paperwork and put documents together. I was the first one there and the first one out. Also, have your money order and two passport pics. You get fingerprinted at the interview. I go for my written psych exam on Wednesday. The agility test starts on Nov 19th and the academy starts Dec 22nd.

I just came back from the written psych portion...INTENSE! Again, get there early. It was about 744 questions. Make sure you pay attention to each question and take your time. Good luck!

Hey things are going well. Everthing is moving at a pretty fast pace. I'm very optismistic that after a long wait things are finally falling into place. I attended my oral pshyc yesterday and I feel it went pretty well. I have my agility on the 19th of this month as you said so I'm just sitting back waiting for the date to arrive. How are you doing with the process and have you heard any new news?

That is great!!! Question...did u get a letter on the agility? No one told me my date....

yea I received a letter a couple of days after my written pshyc which I found a little weird cause I thought they would at least wait to see if I cleared the oral pshyc. Did they assign you an investigator? If so try to contact him/her to get an update on your process but I'm trying to contact my investigator as we speak and that seems easier said than done at the moment.

Yes, I have Officer Oxendine as my investigator. I spoke with her on the phone a few times. She didnt say anything about my agility. She didnt know a date for me.

call them up and tell them you misplaced your letter for the agility and you need a new one mailed out and see where it goes from there

Sorry but my pc was down but I found out something interesting on the day of my agility, and that was the fact that there were people there to take the agility that haven't even attended their oral psych. I'm pretty confused at the process that the nycdoc have going on cause there are people who are almost done with the process and all they are waiting on is to be appointed a date for their agility.

Hey!! I took the agility on Saturday. 1:39! I got it the first time. How did you go? I didnt care if I did it in 1:59...as long as it was under 2 mins! I spoke to a few people who didnt do their oral psych either. I dont think anyone can figure out their system.

Are you serious???!!! No one has called me and I left a message with my investigator on Wednesday. What did they say?

I never leave a message for my investigator, there's no point. I just keep calling till she answers. The person who called me did say there are calling in sections (not to sure what that means) but they are still calling people. The person who called just gave me an appointment for pre employment and told me what information to bring. I'm still not to sure what pre employment mean as far as being hired goes.

What is your appt date? If the academy starts Dec 22nd I want to be able to give my job at least a 2 weeks notice. So I hope mine is next week.

mine is on the 5th which is monday. From what im hearing everyone is recommending not to give your job any notice until the day before the academy starts. They are saying noting is set in stone, they have cancelled academy classes a a few days before they were suppose to begin.

Not bad at all. Its not as bad as people make it seem. Just be cool and honest. You will do fine. Lasted about 45 mins. Just questions about your life, how you handle life, your family, etc. Is this for the Dec 22nd class?
