jake in Wallingford, Connecticut said: how did it go? did they offer you the job then make an appointment with you to have the medical?

Yes they asked me if i was still interested in becoming a CO and accepted. Then they gave me a brief summary of what to expect the 10 of aug is orientation and the academy begins the 14. I was told we will spend 5 weeks in class room and 5 weeks on the field training. No more then 2 tardies or more then 1 absence I believe and you cant fail any exams. Firt pay day will not be for about 4 weeks. Then they had me call someone to set up appointment for pre emplyment screening and drug test.

To you who got offered an academy slot...was your test score in the 90's? Selections were supposed to go by test score order and I've heard nothing about that on this forum.

I would think you have a great chance of getting in since you are in the military thats one of the questions I was asked at the interview.

I finally received a phone call today, they asked for a copy of my w-2's. They also contacted my employer today. This is definitely a step in the right direction. Not sure what they r thinking but I guess that means I passed the oral. My oral was June 2nd. Good luck to all, I know how badly everyone wants/needs this opportunity.

they should have personal references for situations when people don't have w2's or former employers to contact. it seems the employer check is the main thing they are doing for everybody. me and my brother both got called asking for more info on previous jobs we had that we couldn't remember old supervisors names or numbers. anybody know what else the background check consists of?

no they just asked for ALL time to be accounted for. whether unemployed or in school. i've had so many odd jobs here and there it's impossible to remember all the details. w2's are long gone as well as the memory of some supervisors names and numbers.

yeah like i'm worried since they have so many applicants that if they can't get in touch w/ former employers they just tear up my app and move on to the next one. plus my boss is being stubborn and i don't think he even called the person back yet!

Q.G. in waterbury, connecticut in Wayne, Pennsylvania

60 months ago

Just a short message for every1.. I know its exciting and every1 is anxious. i am too! But the DOC is not 4 every1. Please dont just think about payday, and how much your gonna make. Mental toughness is the key to perform this job. I have 2 close friends that "used to be in the department" one lasted 2yrs the other 3yrs. Both of them said that the money's good but, u see and deal with alot and they didnt feel like it was worth the mental stress. PPl have also been hired and quit the within the first month.. So with jobs being hard to get please consider what im saying b4 u decide to leave your employer if employed.. I've been working for the same company for 6yrs but the DOC is where my heart is at and mentally im ready.. Good luck to all!

My interview was May 21 and i still haven't gotten called yet..So i think We all still have a chance..Even if we don't make this class we'll make the next...You still have to take into consideration the people who get called for the Academy and decide its not for them during the first couple of weeks or fail the training.

so i think i have come to the realization that im not getting into the first class. has anyone else given up on the first class or am i just being a downer. i dont mind if i dont make it until the second class. the reason i would prefer to be in the first class is because i am in college and i dont want to start the semester and then have to withdraw from the class half way through if they decide to put another class through in oct.

Remember, they are over 500 applicants. Not sure about the number, but we are all withing a very large group of applicants.
All scored with passing scores, all pass PT's and must have a clean record... some college, some dont, but we just never know..as we interview, few cutt off, then background, another few, and it goes on.... What I dont understand, why do they allow like 1000's of applicates and a few openings....
