I took the written video test for the Las Vegas Dept of Corrections and was placed in "Group 2".
Has anybody else taken the test--this is for the City--not the State.
Do you know where they are in terms of calling people?

Did you hear anything yet? I took the test too, probably at the same time. I think I'm in "Group 1", I either scored 83 and got 88 with my VA preferrence or scored 88 and got 93 with my VA prferrence. I don't remember the exact order that everything happened or the dates, but I met with an investigator to briefly go over am background check forms in mid-January. I had to provide signed statements and documents for things flagged on my background. It took me almost 2 months to turn my documents in (I hope this isn't a negative). I also took the Suitability Test on Jan 23rd, which consisted of 1200 questions, then met with the Psych Dr about a week later. And I haven't heard anything since.

I just emailed the investigator that is handling my application. Maybe I should've called. I hope my email didn't sound rude. I simply said "I didn't hear anything about the positions, were all the positions filled?"

If I don't get selected with Las Vegas I might apply in Tonopah or somewhere else in NV.

Nothing yet here either.
Your in Group 1 and haven't heard anything yet??
That's not good news at all.
I thought they contacted people to let them know one way or the other.
I know it's a waiting game but this is loooooooong.
So they didn't email you back?

Thank you for your participation in the recent recruitment process for the position Corrections Officer with the City of Las Vegas, Department of Detention & Enforcement. Unfortunately, at this time, you were not selected to fill this vacancy. Your name will remain on the eligibility list, and in the event other vacancies become available, you will again be considered. -Martha Davis

So I just got the email above. Man I really thought I was going to get in. I thought I was a good solid choice for this position. I think my only negative was an assault conviction in 2001.

I got the EXACT same email.
It says we are still on the list though.
That was a looooong wait for a big let down.
I too thought I had a shot.
Who knows when our names will come up again on that list.
Remember---it EXPIRES.
I don't remember the timeline--but I will look at my paperwork where it says how long.
