Not hard! The math was honest to God the easiest part! Adding and subtracting only! 76 questions. It is the exact questions as on the sample test so you will def pass! There were some super tuff looking guys that would be great with this career but they couldn't pass the written so i guess it's not that easy. I'm female lol just for those of you calling me man.

Wow sounds easy. How long after you take the test do you find out if you passed?

Hello guys I don't mean to put anyone down but CDCR is not the best place to look for a career at the moment. There is too many cuts and insecurities going on at CDCR at the moment. Word is CO's with less than 5 years in might get laid off. I have a cousin that works in Chowchilla and he said October is gonna be judgment day for a lot of young CO's. They are also tryna mess with their retirement packages which made the job even more desirable. CDCR is not what it use to be, at least not right now, I don't think it is a good idea working at a place where everyday you go to work you are in fear of cuts or getting laid off or working 3 years and then be forced to resign or get laid off...Its just my point of view...

The reason why they are bringing in newbies is because it Will be cheaper for the state. the newbies aren't going to have the same retirement and benefits as the CO use to get plus alot of COs jumped ship and they also bought out alot of COs that were close to retirement so they need to fill in those slots.

Was that just "opinion" or "fact"? Pretty cool if it was fact.

You have to know this the time where you need to stick into any Gov job because it is tough out here, get the experience forget how much you would make. I think there is academy in July 2012. they started reviewing the Depts needs at 4/12. soon you will call for assignment and then the medical exams.
