As far as I know they are not required to but are strongly encouraged to hire off the layoff list. it just seems unreasonable to expect a dept halfway across the state to hire 7 guys that are just going to leave when Springfield gets their budget back on track. Then the hiring dept. will be right back in the same place they started, short handed and looking to fill gaps and having to wait almost a year to get the guys/girls fully trained and on their own.ryan933 said:Are CS cities and towns "required" to hire from the layoff list, or can they still hire from the list compiled from the last test?
Open mouth and insert foot. The state's deficit of $3 billion is not Romney's fault or the legislature's fault, its just economics. The deficit was where it was before Romney got elected and Swifty was still our Acting Governor. Also before you repeat the "Romney eats" quote again, here's a tip, Mitt Romney and Kerry Healey are not receiving any payment for their entire terms.shawnr76 said:but first we have to make sure that Romney eats because we know how short on cash he is. :roll:
Open mouth and insert both feet. Your line of thinking : I am not a police officer in my hometown, and I am still not going to be a police officer in my hometown because Springfield's and Taunton's bugets. Romney could fix this all and I could be a police officer in my hometown of course , but he is failing to do the job I elected him to do.shawnr76 said:It's pretty sad that all of us who want to become cops and have families in our hometowns have to take a number due to the budgets of Springfield and Taunton. Oh well, this is the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I feel bad for those laid off and hope they get rehired in their hometowns. It be nice if the State would step in and give some money to Taunton and Springfield, but first we have to make sure that Romney eats because we know how short on cash he is. :roll: Bad me for being upset with an elected official who I elected to do a job which he is failing to do.

Massachusettes is in the situation that it's in for lots of reasons. The big dig, Sept. 11th 01', The war on terror, etc. etc... Seriously, shawnr76, how do you think Mass got the way it is? Are you sure your going to like police work? Cause you have a narrow field of view.
I agree with you Easton. My hips are lubed and I am trying to squeeze, door is very small. I hear Kabul has a small list...... :lol:Easton said:wow pissed off people, hmm, well anyway you must exhaust the layoff list in CS before you are able to hire from the list that will be comming out next month. CS is a great thing if you can squeeze your fat ass through the door....
