How long did it take to get your interview date once your test was scpred? Do you know if you get ypur background check donr, can it be used for other state jobs cuz i have been chosen to test for two additional state jobs. THANKS

I'm not sure how many people there looking to hire, I'm guessing a decent amount the job posting is still up. After my test was scored I received a "notice of interview" email which was about one week than I had to call and the lady set me up with an interview date. I don't know if the Background check can be used for other jobs!

How did everything go yesterday? I still have not received an interview date though i was selected to interview? Should I be concerned,or do you think it might be due to the govt. weather closures last week?

Have you heard anything? I haven't but thought it might have been due to the weather and holiday closures.

I am so frustrated. Here I've been sitting waiting for an interview date since Feb. 7th and I find out today that I have been marked failure to respond. I should have just called them cuz they claimed to have emailed me a notice for an interview on Feb. 11th!!!!! I never got it. The lady said maybe it went to my spam. Why would that be if I have gotten all their previous emails. Anyway, she said she will put me on the list to receive another notice.....I could have been on the fingerprinting or physical portion by now. I hope this process ends soon. I think a training class started in March... won't make that so I'm hoping for June. I hope this job is worth all the hassle.

This is very true! I feel like the whole process is designed to test your patience and determination. You just have to take it one day at a time. I am very lucky and most people have told me that my process has been expedited very quickly. Now I am just waiting to hear if they are going to offer me the position and the start date for training.
6/19/2013-I applied online for the position
10/2/2013- I took my CO exam
11/11/2013-I had my CO interview with the investigator
12/2/2013-I had my physical exam
2/1/2014-I was given a conditional letter of offer contingent on my psychological exam and final review.
1/24/2014-I had my psychological exam
2/14/2014- I was scheduled for my final review; however due to inclement weather they called and rescheduled twice.
2/26/2014-I had my final review.
Now I am just waiting to hear from them. Keep in mind that on 7/1/2013 they changed their process for the CO exams to walk-in. They no longer scheduled appointments. I was told that if you applied before May of 2013 they also did the walk-in process for the CO exam. It seems as though most people who applied during the period of time when they scheduled the exams are making faster progress. The process of scheduling the CO exams seems more organized. I have friends who applied before me through walk-in exams and they are still waiting to take their psychological exams. I think that it will all be worth it in the end, if this is your career path.

I understand the whole patience is virtue but it can frustrate anyone knowing that going went through this whole process(some longer than others) and eventually be told their not gonna be hired. My interview was pushed back as well due to inclement weather! I hope all this is for something!

Problem is that I am expecting to have another job offer in the next week or two. I hate the idea of taking the position, knowing that I don't plan to stay but waiting through this lengthy corrections process leaves me with no choice.

I was asked basic questions, like why I should be hired? What makes me angry? Questions on experiences with my former bosses. It took about a week after my final interview to get the call about an job opening. Thanks man, I'll try my best just glad to get a chance, wishing you the best!
