Click in Albany, New York said: Question. I know a few general questions that are on the psyc test. How are you supposed to answer them

1. I have no problem telling people what to do. Y/N
2. I daydream about sex. Y/N

My honest responses to both question are Yes. I'm more worried about the psyc than anything else because of these types of questions. I don't love to tell people what to do, but there are times at my current job where I certaintly have to

first of all.. you will be aske professional questions not ones that are irrelevant to the job.. you wont be asked questions like that.. so your already off on what your goin to get into when you face that exam/oral psych. but basicly the written exam is yes or no questions or rates from 1-5 in reference to your emotions depending on the question.

i dont think anyone likes telling people what to do.. the questions is will you be able to handle telling people what to do.. especially those that wont follow orders.. if you dont like it as is.. believe it the inmates will run your house instead of you.. remember those guys are in for yearsssssss.. they are the best of the best minipulators. you will have a problem quick.. they are professionals at trying to get over on people.. i work with inmate intake at a hospital.. i know what am talking about..

eburse02 in buffalo, New York said: Sorry only 486 people got appointed out of 3826

Ummm. I was just doing a little math. If you divide 486 by 3826, that comes out to .12- otherwise known as 12%. so off 24997 only 12% of people who took the test were hired? That can't be. That's almost like one in ten people are actually offered a job.

I totally agree with this!!! I have done this job in another state and if you CANT tell people what to do or have a hard time doing it then why are you bothering???? YES the DORM runs itself BUT you draw the line in WRITING UP inmates and if you want to BE ROBO-COP and BUST inmates for ANYTHING you will get hurt in time...I have seen it FIRST-HAND!!!!

FAR AS ONLY HIRING 400 and whatever people off a LIST??? LETS SEE, some people FAIL parts of the process....some don't want the job anymore and SO ON!!!!!

SOME PEOPLE just don't know what they are talking about...AND also, PEOPLE that think they are taking the JOB for the PAY or to have a JOB..PLEASE do research before you get into taking a EXAM BLA BLA...IT is better you NOT apply cause your going to basically FIND OUT what the job is, WHICH IS breeaking up fights and BABY-SITTING adults that CANT live in TODAYS SOCIETY!!! DO THE RESEARCH and stop wasting the STATES TIME!!!!

Yes, as amazing as this sounds, it's true. Many people take civil service tests just as a backup plan and are curious to see how they'd score. Next, you lose people who fail medical/drug/background tests. Then you have your group of people who fail the psych test. Finally, list 24997 dragged on for so long, that many people lost interest or found other jobs. I know a few guys personally who did that...they joined the Army, etc. If you were one of the few who hung on and stuck with it, you will most likely get the call.

At the medical...Is the bloodwork done that day? I have my medical on Friday. On Thursday night I really want to go out for a little bit. Maybe 5 beers if that. I don't want that to show up as alchol in my blood. Sounds stupid, but it's a special occasion

Calling people fat and lazy is disrespectful. Just say out of shape. I am totally out of shape. But I am working on it now. Cardio sucks for me, strength is easy for me. Noone knows if they can do the job until the cell doors close behind them.

Doesn't sound stupid-- it IS stupid. You will be telling them you can't celebrate a special occasion without drinking even if it costs you a job that you want. Is that the impression you want to make?

Littledny, every job is for a paycheck. I don't know of any COs who wake up and say to themselves "man, I can't wait to get behind those walls today, this is gonna be awesome!" Those that are doing the job and those of us hoping for the job are going for the paycheck, benefits, and retirement. I hope everyone trying gets in and if it turns out they don't like it and they quit, then someone else will take their place. If I misspoke for anyone I apologize and feel free to correct me. Good luck to everyone going to the July class!

My uncle was deputy warden at Rikers and he loved his job and I mean loved it. He said was the greatest job he ever had. He is also a lunatic lol. Its a paycheck and thats it. Good benefits, etc but the job itself isnt the greatest. Another uncle was in psych ward on Rikers. Believe me when I tell you they were there for the money and thats it.

I did psych asked me why i want the job.. i said the stablity of knowing i can put my kids thru college.. and there is positions to move up.. im giving options as time goes on.. I passed.

And as for "unless your butch" then i must have the personality.. i am far from that.. im a pretty woman in shape.. and get disrespected every day by these inmates and officers themself.. but i have a firm attitude.. im very good at ignoring many comments thrown at me.. but im also demanding.. i can handle it.. it comes with the territory. what ever woman doesnt know this better getting on .. definately wont last a day.. i been doing hospital intake 3 yrs. its a breeze now.. my first look at them usually puts them in check..but my guard is always up..

Its a career with a good pay check as time goes on.. its stablity most jobs dont offer.. you wanna work regular hours you can.. you wanna make more $$$ the o.t is always there. its a money making career.. but the money part comes first.. you have the option to make more any time you want.

that i agree on yes :) most people on here think its just a paycheck which its not....My above posts were stating that most people go into it as a paycheck and they leave the academy..people need to do research before they apply for a job, most dont..i have done this job for years and i see people leave after first day..point im making is they should have known its a prison and not a easy job also..

I agree.. someone posted that its an easy job.. that was the funniest post i ever seen on here.. i work outside with this guys.. i can only imagine inside.. somebody been watching to much Lifetime channel movies.. believing its an easy job.. seeing fights, blood, spit vomit, getting cursed at, thrown urine and craped on, yelling all day.. oh yeahh very easy lol.. smh we already know one person thats gonna run out half way before the door closes.. lol (im seeing this from outside so i would believe its 1000 worse inside) remember these guys have no rights..they cant complaint or sue you like the fools in Rikers can.. they will get at you all day .. they have nothing else to do..
