That has nothing to do with corrections it's the states tier system for pay and retirement. There's really nothing not to understand there...

I knew a few people had recieved letters see if they were still interested. I know one guy on here had an 85 and received a letter. Just wanted to see if anyone else was getting notified that scored in the 80s.

My fiance is at work and his investigator just called. What are the chances that was the call to tell him when he starts training? Or do they call for other things other than that. Thanks so much for any input. Good luck everyone!

When I called in april they told me i should get a letter by this coming april. The way things look i think she's right. I'm also in the process for CT DOC so i'm hoping to hear from them in february. I don't think it will be long for nys to start up again. I work with a guy who's retired from nys and said they have alot of people retiring. alot of his friends retired in the last year.

Justwaiting in Bronx, New York

Hello everyone. I would like everyones opinion in where i stand in the state correction process. Drove to Albany 11/9, did paperwork,did medical, and physical examination 1st part of the day. Drove straight to investigators, got photoed and fingerprinted, talked to my investigator, that same day they gave me a paper to take the written psycological 3 days later. Drove back to albany, took psyc exam, then they gave me date for 1 on 1 psych interview. Did the interview on 12/7. I felt it went well, no crazy questions or anything out the normal. Next day i called my investigator and asked if there is anything else I need to do, and was told no, and told to wait. no phone calls, nothing in mail as of yet. I heard that no news is good news.

Based on the information given, do I have a good shot at landing the job? Also, what do you estimate the wait will be?

Thanks everyone and happy holidays...

I received my canvas letter July of 08 then started with the physical and the finger print process on 04/01/10 then around April 28th my written psych and two weeks later my one on one psych . I had a few issues medically that I had to get clear I was medically cleared on 11/26/10 . The freeze has slowed the process up a lot . They're is just know way of knowing .

Good Luck and Happy Holidays to all

Jane you must be talking about NYC. They give you an application booklet to take home and fill out and also be prepared to obtain a lot of documents.

I just spoke with my investigator and my test 24825 has EXPIRED !
I am so frustrated. He said i had to start all over . He was interviewing a new person ! I finished and passed everything . I'm gonna try to appeal if this can be done. I'm not sure if I can but it won't hurt to try.

Good luck to everyone !

I thought the lists were good for 4 years? i would call back and possibly speak with someone else about that. Did he give you any reasoning to why it expired 1 year early?

at orientation for city there is no written test or drug test.. just a lot of talk and fillin out the book.. you will take the one on one psych before your assigned an investigator.. they will give you the run around dates for all of that.. so be ready to spend at least 200 bucks to get all the paper work they require (goin to dmv, ssi office, department of finance, unemployment which you hav to call to request records you cant get them in person) this is all $$$.. and many trips to queens for the written psych, one on one, medical, a blood pressure exam.. meet the investigator. all different dates.. its crazy.. GOOD LUCK..

The starting salary is $36,420. After 6 months you go to $38,310. Then finally when you reach a year your salary will be $43,867.

Don't feel bad. I've been taking test for years. Driving to different states, paying for tests, hotel rooms, driving 100 plus miles one way to take tests and interviews. I was activated by nj doc before this last list expired. I took a job with Delaware DOC a year ago and was surprised to hear from nj. I was excited to be able to move back home and get a big pay increase and they never even called me for an interview or sent a letter after I was processd. This is with experience and a bachelors degree. For this career you have to take more than one test to get in somewhere. Just try applying to different places. I've been doing it for years. If this is what you want to do keep moving forward and trying different states and departments. I learned the hard way taking the test in nj 3 times with no luck.
