It all comes down to the interview

Has anyone got a call with an offer that did not get a W2 call

Rich in Monson, Massachusetts said: What do you mean by "establish seniority"...

'Seniority' is a term typically used to determine how long an employee has been with company in relation to other employees. An employee hired last is the 'least' senior to employees already on the job. 'Seniority' is determined by Hire Date. For civil service jobs (like DOC) when several employees hired on same date or same recruit class, then employer will use written exam score from highest to lowest to determine seniority. If more than one employee has same score in the list, then employer will sort alphabetically by last name.

There are advantages to being more senior than others in the a recruit class or when getting on the job. Having 'seniority' over someone else on the job means you get first dibs when taking time off. Seniority also counts towards promotions, transfers and work assignments. In promotions, seniority counts towards your overall score. More senior employee will get promotion if they have same score. If 2 or more individuals request a transfer to same facility or apply for same work assignment, most senior employee will get it unless he has some attendance, work or discipline issue. If employer decides to layoff, the last guy hired is the first one to be laid off.

I don't believe that the class is all set. I have a few friends who got in during the last testing period And the earliest someone got called before the academy was 5 days before and one was 2 days. Just Have to stay patient.

That's good to know that there's still a chance for this class, I gave up hope for this one already though. If there's still spots open I'm sure it's not a lot because my buddy has his orientation on Monday.

FYI - When I was getting my physical done on Thurs day for the June class I asked the Doctor if everyone was passing and was told there were guys who failed the drug test... lmao I'm assuming thats why some spots are opening for this????

I talked to a CO on tuesday and asked the same question because I have asked on here a few times and got no response. The guy told me you would get a rejection letter within a few months after the interview if you didnt pass the background check. He also said he got on in 1999 so he couldnt assure me that things are still done the same way.

I was told by CO that's retiring in October that if you did not receive a letter within a few weeks then you should be fine. when did you interview?

Yes, today is a pre orientation..noone fails.. basically they give the PT test but it is just so the instructors can see what they need to focus on with this class if anyone is a little behind on certain things. The whole day only lasts a few hours, it is mostly HR talking to you telling them what to expect on Friday when the actual academy starts.

I know this because I started my career almost two years ago (class 250). I also posted that June 14th was the date and noone believed me. This class has 100+ , another FYI, a LT from myfacility told us there will be another class Sept/Oct so keep your heads up. This class will end 10 weeks from June 14 so that makes it end of August sometime? Then the next class will be right after that.

The new transfer list is out and COs are transferring to other prisons on October 18. This means there will be a class right after this one is finished. Calls should go out soon. October 18 will be when the new class begins OJT.
