So it's pretty safe to say there will be consistent classes oppose to how it was for a few months before they picked up again for the 9/8 class. That was a dry spell (i'm sure there have been worse) but still... job on.

Get there at 4 the first week. They will start letting you in right around that. After that I would get there around 6. Each week you need to reset up your room for that week. If you show up late you will have to rush to get it done

A few things.... leaving it at work means two things the first of which BSO touched on, the second is not bringing home aggression and a bad attitude. You will have all kind of emotions from this job and you need to leave them there. If you don't, you will either shut down emotionally, become a drinker or abuse your spouse. Do the job, leave it at the gates. When you are delaying your class, you're screwing yourself. It may not seem like a big deal now, but everyone in the class before you will have seniority on you. When you try to transfer, all of the higher seniority goes before you, in some jails, vacation, time off and especially bids.

This forum is very helpful. Thanks to those experienced individuals taking the time to educate "new jacks " lol. I scored an 87 I believe and had 1 on 1 in march and have not received call but not worrying because "no news is good news" and I have not received DQ notification. Looking forward to this.

You wanna be there at 6 pm after the 1st week that's fine. I'd say get there closer to 8. If you get to the hotel i'd say 9.

Will they skip over an 85 and choose an 80 if they believe that they're a better fit candidate given their credentials and/or personality? Or is it more of a cut and dry go down the list by priority of score?

The score is the determining factor, but that can be delayed due to missing info, paperwork or other factors with your background check. That is why it is important to just call your BI every 3-4 weeks and check to make sure that they don't need anything else from you.

I'm pretty sure the gray ones. I'm wondering if we stencil the sweatshirt as well. Also I can't find sweat shorts anywhere! Are grey mesh ok? I know Walmart has really nice selection of gray sweats, tee's and sweatshirts in case anybody had trouble finding them.

You stencil the grey ones, don't need them until Tuesday. Don't do the sweatshirts and mesh shorts will be fine. You must have sweats, no matter how hot it is. You CAN wear compression shorts under your shorts, no braces or wraps, unless you have a medical slip for them. Good luck to you guys, see you in 8 weeks.

I was wondering if anyone knew how to get ahold of your investigator. For the last 3 weeks I have tried calling and it rings once and goes straight to voicemail.I have left two messages and neither of them have been returned. Is this normal considering how busy they may be with other investigations going on. I completed my 1 on 1 on march 6. Got an 80 on the test and have not heard a thing. My references and Forman also have heard nothing. Any advice?

Keep calling.don't bother leaving to many messages . These investigators have a lot of people to investigate . I just kept calling 9-5pm till I got him and not the machine.

Depending on the needs of each prison are new officers limited to a certain amount of overtime hours or are they more so expected to accept all mandates and stride to work OT?
