it would be nice if we knew if they have already hired the entire class that is starting in Aug, then at least we can stop biting our nails praying that the phone would ring

o man i feel bad. im sure that put you in a really good mood after that phone call. i have a small connection in corrections and he was supposed to try and find out if i was getting into this class. so before i left for work yesterday my mom said if she were to call during work to pick up because she would be calling to let me know if she heard anything. well she called and left me a message while i was at work. so i got really excited but the message ended up having nothing to do with it. my connection still hasnt call me with any news. my connection has been correct about stuff this entire process. if you recall i posted earlier that there was going to be a class on august 14. and sure enough two or three days later rell announced the class. dont get me wrong though this connection would never be able to get me a job. he jsut has his eyes and ears in DOC. i hate the waiting game. im sure all of us here will get in at some point. the question is when

may 20th honestly if i had known that the date you take your physical determined when you interview was i would have signed up for the first possible physical. i feel bad for the people who had the last physicals, they may never hear anything

Dam my interview was july 16. Idk though my firends was july 26 and they called him to come for a earlier interview so maybe their really weaning people out. I think the dates in this process actually was scheduled based on the written exam.

no i think the physical because we were able to select the date we wanted for the physical and then we were assigned a date for the interview once we passed. either way the system is unfair because they people who have late interviews may never see a chance. but again they should have been on the ball and signed up for an earlier physical. i wonder why your friend was called for an earlier date. was it like a day earlier or like weeks earlier.

i think probably closer to October. 125 cos on august 14 is a large class so who knows if they will have room to start another acedemy while the first class is still there.

i think a lot of people need it. i think we are in with the number of vacancies there are. it just sucks to play this waiting game. and like i said earlier, DOC is not allowed to start a background unless they have in interest in you. so as long as you know they have started or finished your background i would feel confident that you will get in eventually.

they did little less then a month ago. but i know a kid whose employers were contacted around the same time and his interview was a few weeks after mine. so i think i was pushed to the side for a little while. even if you dont get into this one your chances of getting in the second one are probably really high

like i said before just because we don't get called now doesn't mean were not it..You still have to think about the people that will not be able to pass the 10 week training, wich will open up slots for us. Or for the ones who aren't mentally prepared to deal with this job. We definitely are still in, even if its the next class or the last...........STAY FOCUSED DANIEL SON...LOL

I have no idea...
It has its pros and cons
I feel bad for those who has passed written and physical, and now might be getting there interview date canceled.
On the other hand, for those who has already interview.. the numbers decreases in candidates.

Yeah the whole DOC application process has been screwed up. They said they would select applicants for job offers based on test score order. They lied. Why did they lie? I don't know. My interview has to be rescheduled also. They should have scheduled OB interviews based on test score order and this wouldn't have happened.

Hey guys, great info, I was wondering if we could get back to the interview portion, mine is on Tues., and I'm a little nervous as to what they are looking for as far as the answers go. Are they looking for specifics, or is it more of a psych test? Thanks.

they are just making sure you dont need anger management. they dont want every response to have physical contact. also you are not going to really know the correct answers to all of them since you have not been trained yet, and they know that. they just want to see you make a response to their questions. don't be nervous. my interview was very laid back.if you go back to page 1 or 2 there are questions that were asked posted. those were close to the same questions i was asked.

going back to the postponed interviews, i agree that the process was a little off, although this is how they always run the process. they don't tell us but the people who have better chances of being hired are the people who take it upon themselves to schedule themselves with the soonest possible physicals. The lady that interviewed me said just that. im sure once they get the first class graduated and into the facilities they will quickly reschedule all the interviews.

so how do you know this? and by the way, the next test wouldn't be for 2 yrs so we all are still in the candidate pool for the next round of hiring which there absolutely will be with all the shortages.

the doc website said they don't expect another test to begin for 12-24 months. so I guess we r still in the running until then. Would assume u r correct about aug 14th class being full because it is getting pretty late. U never know with the State though!!!

Hi guys, I've been reading your post for weeks now so I thought I would join in. Thanks for all the information. I live in Jersey and try to get as much information about the test that I can. Has anyone on here taken CO exams in different states and heard anything from them? I took the CT test and had an interview set for Aug. 27 which will probably get postponed. I took NYS, NYC, Delaware and the NYPD test. I'm waiting to get cleared for an interview in DE. They are doing a background check now.

you are right also, we are in the running for the other 300 or so spots but people including friends of mine are interviewing every day until october. just makes a bigger pool of guys to choose from so if you dont get in in less than 12 months you have to start from scratch.

i hate this process. this is one of those jobs where you need to wait forever to hear anything. they need to make more hires to fill all the officer that retired. but the money just isnt there. rell is supposed to have a new budget by the end of the week or she gets a 1 million dollar fine. so im sure we will find out within the week what kind of budget there is with corrections

you are right, becuase if we are still in the running, why nothing as of yet? I mean if we were out we should of have been recieved a letter. I wish I knew the correct answers. Reading a post here, someone said this class was closed, I guess not... well we still have time! We just never know!!!!!!!! take it easy, you will hear good news soon! This month is time for change and next one Opportunity (that's what my calendar says"
