A question about OJT.... Do you get days off? And if you have a pre-arranged engagement that's important will they let you have that time off?

It depends on what it is, you can put a to from in to the sergeant at the academy, you generally can get a day off for Dr's and such, OJT, you put a to from in to the Lt., I know of a guy that got a day off for a wedding that he was in. Totally depends on the jail but they may give you an occurrence.

So guys and gals....I'm sure no one can answer this with any guarantee but I'm going down Monday the 16th for Med/agility and BI....with that being said how soon after those are done should I be doing my written psych? Also once written psych is done how soon after for the oral? I'm sure this has been answered however I have no search function display on my phone. Any help is appreciated!

When I went at the beginning of April, I did my med/agility and met with my background investigator all in one day. About 2-3 weeks after that I took my written psych test. Then I would say within 1-2 weeks after that I took the psych test and had my 1 on 1 May 4th.. So the process took me maybe a little over 1 month and everything was done.. Everyone is different but that should at least give you an idea of what to expect.

Med/Agility and investigator was April 4th took my written April 20, and im guessing since im in NYC my 1 on 1 was May 23rd,some people based on where they chose to go was sooner than my appointment. Timetables vary. And like cuse said,this will give you an idea of how long or fast the stages are.....btw I dont recall when I received my medical letter saying that i was physically fit for the position.

Thanks for the help guys! I sure do appreciate it! Also....I know there is a wait time between getting all of this done and getting called for the academy....however how long have some of you waited so far?

I think most of us waiting had our 1 on 1's early May and after.. So for me it's going on almost 8 months, but movement seems to be going fairly quickly as far as how quickly new classes are getting pushed through. I think what slowed down a lot of us is they really didn't run any summer academies.

Good evening everyone. New to this forum. I have read just about every page in this forum. BSOdeputy has been on point and has answered every question some of you guys are asking. I took the 25256 test back in April 2013. I received my score at the end of August. Canvas letter I received 2wks ago. I received my background packet last week and was told to report on December 23rd, 2013 for my med/physical and background. I have a friend who is currently employed with NYS DOCCS and according to him he says my process has been really fast compared to when he was going through this process. Hopefully the psych/1 on 1 comes along quickly after my appointment on the 23rd. Hoping this fast processing means I will get into the academy soon and not have to wait months to get in. Anyone else going December 23rd for the med/physical/background?

Yes I am in the 100s. I have Been through a difficult process I was working for DOCCS for almost 2 years I want to be discreet what was my title. But all I have to said is that I chose not to go into the academy 1 year and half ago when they had called me for it.

Until one day I received an email from my union rep saying we need to take an exam for our position by then it was to late my exam had expire (24-997) yes i know 08. I thanks god for giving me that opportunity to work for this awesome agency that I hope to someday work for it again.

Bso do you think it possible to be put on the Spanish list if you took the test not knowing of its existence ? I'm on it but a friend of mine took the test and didn't know about it at the time.

No, Civil Service has to abide by laws and one of them is that you have to apply for that position before the test is administered.

It will take at least 6 months from the time that you complete your one on one. You have to understand that there are thousands of people that are going through the process at once and it takes lots of time. There are still 70's that are just beginning to process along with 75's and 80's waiting for the call. You can expect the wait, especially since they closed the academy for several months.

Some jails are easy and will show you when you ask, others only pull them for you once a week. You have to be on the list before you can have your numbers. If you are trying to get West, your best bet is to go to 5 points, it is a short list with lots of movement. The mediums that way take months to a year longer.

They are calling of the 2010 test now they don't call the 100-80s on one yes and then go back to older test and call 75-70s that don't make any sense

They are starting your process, they can not jump to a future list until the current list is exhausted. The 75's and 70's have gone through the part that you are now starting. If you were referring to the previous post, about the other test, it said that they were called last year, in December and January. You can expect at least a minimum of a six month wait after your 1 on 1. There are a lot of people that still have to go through the academy that have been processed.

I had the same problem 80 on 25431 didn't receive my canvass. I called them in April, had med/agility in May, written in June and 1 on 1 in August. Now I'm going to Academy on the 30th. Going on how things went with me it shouldn't be to long for you. Good Luck!

Getting close to my year on the job! Test 25431. It's a long process and believe it or not the academy is the best part of the whole process. For those going into the academy STICK IT OUT! It's not as bad as it seems at first. You'll learn to love it after a couple weeks. For those of you that will be far from home save your money. The first six months I was spending about $650 a month between gas, tolls from commuting across the state and money for a dump apt I shared with 5 other people. I'm not home yet but I'm close to home and I'm really liking the job. Be strong for your first year it gets better. Where else are you going to find a job with these benefits, decent wage and better job security than in the private sector. I had a good job before I came in and I considered not being a CO but now a year later people from my old job are being laid off. That could have been me.
