well ladies and gentlemen i think we need to start praying that rell will allow another class to start after this one. i think if we have not heard yet were not going to hear. the orientation is on Monday which is 3 business days away. i am still frustrated with the way the select people, and to be honest a little jealous that a friend was select over me who had lower test scores and interviewed 2 weeks after me. o well

maybe they give preference to people who interviewed better. my friend told me they score the oral between 1-10 and you need a 6 to pass. he's been a c.o. for 6 years now.

Ive Been Upset for 7 Months Ive been laid off for 7 months and Unemployment Benefits suck ...But you have to look at the positive side. "Were all still posting these messages keeping hope for each other", Also None of us received a rejection letter which is a BIG Plus. And i just talked to my friend who is a C.O. and he says not to believe a lot of what you hear in some cases because there is such a shortage in many jails, that they need lots of help. He also stated that just because people finish the 10 week training some of them get fired, or they seek employment through another Law enforcement agency....If i get the C.O position and i get called for the State Trooper Academy i will be Doing the STATE TROOPER...We are all in there...Trust me when i say this..many people have been eliminated and others there interview papers probably shredded to pieces..I saw a guy come to an interview with jeans ON............WOOOOOOOOOOOOW...so keep faith lady's and gents.

I have been having problems with mail service in my area.the mailman often gets the neiborhoods mail mixed up. I contacted HR at State level.and they gave me the direct tel# to recruiting at doc. before calling hr tolled me that there was little to no candidates from this round that would be picked.That they were still picking ones from 07 and if the ones getting picked now were more likely ones that renewed them self this yr. I called doc and all you get is a recording.

sometimes its one year some times its two yrs. its whenever doc starts a new application. once they announce a new process all previous candidates are dropped and must reapply if they are still interested in the job. i don't care what you hear but facts are facts. this forum is for people to get information and to keep positive, so lets not turn this into an argument or a bashing.

hr never know what the hell they are talking about. to be honest i think the people who have been selected are recent graduates of college. there was a thing on the news that rell sent out letters begging recent grads to stay in ct. hiring recent grads was rells way of showing other grads that there are jobs in ct. i have two more semesters to go, but a friend of mine who graduated this yr and took his pt after mine, and his oral and scored lower on his written got hired. hunter do you know if your background was started

wow another class of 125. these are some big classes. i thought they were usually like 30-40

hunter the only way to find out is to ask your employer is he/she has been contacted by doc

It has to be based fairly highly on the interview, because they get to meet you.
I think simple test scores don't tell the entire picture in this environment.
My interview was on June 8, background done, and no call yet.

not to burst anyone's bubble but I confirmed with DOC directly today and the class is full,not a friend of a friend or a cusin's brother's uncles girlfriend. Directly.they notify candidates both by mail and by telephone. If you have not heard by now you are placed in a pool.from there they will fill out the next class. or send out rejection letters. be patience. not class is confirmed yet.these are all rumors.we will get in.P.S. I come from a family with members HIGH up in DOC and I scored very high on both test, I have been laid-off for over a year and I'm not in yet.Be Patience...

if it's full? what happnes if people fail or drop out halfway through the class? if they budgeted for 125 officers and 10 leave, how do they fill those 10 spots when the academy is halfway finished? or what if less show up on the 14th?

if people dont make it through the academy it does not matter to us. they budget for a few not being able to make it. so lets say they wanted to have 120 new officers, they may make the academy 125 people large. they know that some of the people they pick wont make it.

there will def. be another academy shortly after this one. i talked to a guy who is a co and at his facility, everyone from second shift was held over for third shift because they have no one to work third shift. thats how short handed they are

Hello everyone,

I'm in the same postion as everyone on this forum. Just waiting for my call as well.There are going to be at least one to two more classes before the year is over so just hold the faith. Sooner or later we will get a call. Remember this Class in August, is just an emergency class; so those who got a call form this list is just lucky. It wouldn't be right for all 125 recricuts to be pulled from this list knowing that this reccruitment process is not over.

I called the recruiting office hours before my interview on aug.6 and they confirmed that all interviews from aug to sept. were posponed due to shortage of staff. Then i rec'd the letter about the posponment 2 days later. Good thing i called to make sure. I took a vacation day off of work for no reason. But they said rescheduled interviews will be sent out soon.. so im patient, ill just have to wait, either way im confident about my chances and everyone else should be too.

I do know that your interview is scored from 1-10. Test scores doesnt matter. They wont tell what u scored on the interveiw but if u get a 7 u most likely will be hired.. anything below 6, theres no chance.
