I was on the phone today with HRD, and the automated service said that the new scores from April's exam will come out at the end of august.

How is it that a test like the LSATs take a month to send out scores, but a 100 question civil service exam takes 4 months?

I know the state runs a little slow, but seriously.

It's civil circus...you're just supposed to keep cranking the arm on the box until the clown finally pops out.

Re: New Civil Service Test: Quincy Police Hiring

The Patriot ledger in Quincy reported that 20 members were promoted to Lts,Srgts. This is the largest promotional list since 1971, when most of the now retired officers first came on. They are hiring 20 more ptr man after just hiring 9 that just got on the road. Any iterested candidates out there looking to get on the QPD..

You have to love Civil Service! :shock: The only Agency that will rob you blind and then take 6 months to grade a computer graded exam, and after the 6 months half of the applicants information will still be all messed up! Gotta love em :roll:

Stay Safe.

Rumer is that the test LISTS will be delayed this time around the HRD is giving a make-up test for those who did not think the first was fair and for those who Missed the first test with a valid documented excuse. I don't agree with that but what can you do. I did not think some of the questions were fair but never heard anything.

Yeah I called last week and a recording said August for the scores.
They never used to take this long.Out of the 6 exams I have taken, I know for sure that I got my scores from the last 3 in july.
They always seem to arrive the week i take my vacation.
You know it used to burn me, the whole process, but now I have just accepted this system for what it is... A BIG FAT JOKE!!!!!!!!!!

I remember on one of my few trips to HRD back about 6 years ago , I saw a former co-worker all dressed up sitting in the lobby. I asked him what he was there for and he indicated that he was appealing his test score and the test stating that it was geared toward people with higher education.

I wished him luck and did my best not to bust out laughing as I headed in to give them my residency documentation for the third time.

I'm sorry, but this is pretty sad. Don't you usually wait to get your score before deciding that a test was unfair and you should appeal it. These people need some help with their self cofindence.

It is very sad. If you can't do good on a civil service exam or thought it was too hard, you are not a very intelligent person. My 10 year old nephew could easily pass this test.

"If you cant do WELL" might have been what you were looking for.

You are correct in that matter though, the test..........easy, the testing process...........easy, the waiting process..........easy but DREADFUL. This is my first time taking the test because I have spent the last four in the middle east primarily, Iraq, Afghanistan and Bahrain. Loving the people on here who are working on number 5 or 6, move somewhere and get a job if you want it that bad.

atrain104,

If it was that easy everybody would just up and move, but this is MA or even New England, for every 1 Police Officer job open there is 75-100+ people standing in line for that job and a lot of the people have the same qualifications. It's very tough and competetive to get a good Police Officer job in MA. Your obviously new, so I wish you luck.

Stay Safe.

I just want to clairify my earlier comment. I have no problem with people appealing their score. It's allowed under the system, and more power to them. My comment was on the fact that just walking out of the test these people were automatically saying it was unfair. See how you did first, then appeal the damn thing all you want.

If everyone thinks the civil service exam is a big joke ( Which I feel it is too) why are we having a big melt down over getting the results!!!!

PS You have one week to appeal the exam after taking it. You can not wait for your results and decide you want to appeal the test because you did not do well on it!!!!!

Sorry, my bad. Guess I should not have shot my mouth off then. I guess I always read that section wrong. Never felt the need to appeal it myself.
