    FYI the DOC announced an exam for Correctional Officer. Really good coin.

    Is there a reason you feel the need to spam your thoughts and Dislike of me into every Post.
    This was just a informational post about a test?

    wwonka,

    I don't think it was directed at you, I have a feeling it was more directed at the fact that Massachusetts is a ridiculously blue state.

    I thought the preferred manner in which to discuss issues with Liberals was spitting venom,name calling and cheap shots at every oppurtuntiy??No?? Maybe im doing it wrong ill have to check with Bill Maher,Alec Baldwin, Martin Bashir or any other Liberal I have ever heard. Hey atleast I didnt call him a racist or terrorist.

    Is the DOC even going to hire people from this test, or is my name going to sit on a spread sheet for two years until they get another $100 from me? I have never taken it.

    They have been hiring like crazy. Probably close to 1000 hires in the last 3 years.

    And i don't see it slowing down much.

    Just took this March 8th, was wondering the score range that they will usually send a card. I am hearing a bunch of different scores ranging from 75-100. I don't know how true that is, I am confident I scored a 90+. Nonetheless thanks for any input.

    It really depends on class sizes and if they are going to run a Par 10 academy.

    it seemed like the class before mine got down to the 96's and some 95's but I think they were all vets the 95's.

    My class was par 10 and we had vet's that scored 79 make it.

    Do you have veterans preference? are you a minority or speak a 2nd language?

    lots of variables and unknowns as to what the DOC will decide to do at any given moment.

    They have gone Pretty far down the list last list in the last 4 years to hire all the new Boots.

    Stay patient and keep your nose clean and you might be rewarded with a wonderful job and alll the abuse and 2nd guessing you can ask for :)

    did you deploy? you might qualify for vet pref which would speed up the whole process.
    They will be hiring off this list. But the list won't be out for probably 5-6 months and then who knows how quickly they will start a new class.

    Thank you for your service.

    Negative, basically as a white male I need a 95 or above to get a card.

    you never know but for the first class probable not. I know someone with your racial profile who scored a 101 but had to wait due to not having vets pref or minority status.

    As of yesterday the list for this exam is out.
    Although I was very pleased with my score, unfortunately I can't say the same for my standing on the list. Nevertheless, I'm still hoping for the best.

    Anyone know how far down the list they go to contact people to move on to the next step?

    Thanks

    I didn't score anything spectacular when I took it, something like a 95, and I was ranked like... 2000 or something.

    I got three letters.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you for your input. Seems like they go pretty far down the list. Now I guess it's back to more of the waiting game haha. Just got to continue to stay in shape in the meantime in case I get that golden ticket.

    They have been going to the very bottom of the eligible scores with all the classes they have put on.

    You will eventually get your shot.

    Good luck

    It depends what their aspirations are and if it is a step in the right direction. It starts the retirement clock.
