Ya, talk about a kick in the pants. When I heard the news I personally felt that I was going to be sick. Had us running all over this friggen city to be poked and proded. We had to sit and take that psych test, go to Woburn and slide across a gym floor, covered with about 9 inches of dust, and all for what? Woops, my bad! Sorry for getting your hopes up! Won't happen again
Thank God I can go back to my old job. I feel sorry for the guys and girls I took the PAT with who, after they passed, gave their 2 weeks. I hope they can get their jobs back. You know, their is this old saying that goes " Sometimes God makes you swim through shit before you hit the water." Unfortunately, this sewage pipe doesn't seem to end

This new test is absolute crap!
Why the hell are we going to have to take another test to get placed on a list that we won't get hired off of? If Boston can't hire off of this list, AFTER processing everybody, how are they going to be able to hire off of the new list?

So basically the purpose of this test is for some minor revenue so the Staties can get some new cruisers. GREAT!!! I swear why the hell do I want to be a friggen cop so mutch?
I should just become a leetch on society! I know how about a public official!
Aren't they getting a raise while we rub 2 nickles together! Makes sence to me.

Allow me to reiterate my current sence of frustration:
First: I'm not talking about the Statie's test. I never took that, had no desire to take it, and got married that day. I'm talking about the Municipal Police Test.

Second: I don't feel that I should be handed a job because I paid $35. That's just plain retarted to even incinuate. Did you read any of the other posts?

I'm a bit flustered because I, along with 59 other people, scored high, got processed, passed every test and was told that I was all set for the academy. Now I, again along with the 59 other people who were cleared for the BPD academy, am being told that I have to pay another $50 to retake this stupid thing (AGAIN, FOR YOUR CLARIFICATION THE MUNICIPAL POLICE EXAM) with the hopes of getting a card to go through the whole process for a second time. If I wasn't processed for the academy in the first place, I would have no problem paying the $50 to re-take the test.

In closing, YA, I'm fully aware of how the system works, thanks for your concern. However, you also don't screw around with people's lives by putting them through the whole hiring process and yanking the rug out from under them at the last minute. I hope that this explanation was suficient for you.

Looks like Tiger Woody did:

They just want everyone's $50. Thats why the State Police advertised their exam all over the papers and on TV....$35 x 16000 test takers =$560,000.....thats about 5 new crusiers they can buy now.

My response about the "Staties and new cars" was in response to him.

37-99,
Unfortunately there is no recourse. Everybody who was slated to go into that class is screwed! there is no legal protection for someone who was offered a conditional offer but no final offer. Disgrace is putting it nicely. If they wanted to do right by us, they should have given us the final offer and then cancled it. This way we could have been grandfathered into the class regardless of the next test.
