Just wondering when the filing date is to take the test in November. I know a couple of people who are interested in taking the test. Also do you know if the test in at UMASS Amherst or in Boston? Thanks for the info.NBPD said:Good Afternoon To All,
Just a heads up on November 19,2005 the nypd will be holding a test at UMASS AMHERST the test fee has been waived so if anyone is interested go go go and good luck nyc puts on about 1600-1700 plus every academy.
I don't think there is a filing date/deadline- as the exam announcement says "Free Walk-in."NBPD said:He/She is right its at umass boston on nov 19,2005 exam time is 11 am. Exam # is 5046. It shows when you click on the link all the alternate filing dates as well it goes from octorber 5 2005, all the way to jan 13, 2006, and feb,march all 2006 dates for exams as well. Good luck to anyone taking it alot of action in the city thats my hometown =] peace
Anyone have specifics on the times for the Salem test?MRC said:It is a free walk in test.
There's also going be a test at Salem State College on November 16th (1st Floor in the dining commons) For those interested, I believe they'll be there from 10 am on.
Hahaha...well thank you. I am just going to take the test though, probably won't actually go. Might as well take it since it's free and I have nothing better to do!!!mpd61 said:Badogg,
Please don't go!! NYC is no place for a wonderful person like you!
If that is true, that is barely above poverty level (maybe not even above) for NYC...s1w said:NYPD just signed a new contract, they start out below 30k a year, I think its around 25-26k for the first year....
How long is probation?masstony said:Just a heads up for all of you wanting to take the test for the NYPD, starting pay is $25,000.00...A sanitation worker for NYC makes more than a NYPD rookie,$29,000.00...some trash for thought. Hell NYPD civilians(who are useless perps) make more than you not doing their job w/ holidays off!!! OT is tough to get, unlimited sick is not so great.
And with the low pay comes the perp recriuts from NYC, lets say they have a class the graduates 1600 officers, 2 out of 6 will get jammed up before they reach the end of probation. You are just a warm body to that city.
And you better come loaded with a savings account of over $5,000.00 if you just want to pay rent, pay for your uniforms(including dress uni's), pay for your noodles in a cup....because thats all you will be eating your first three years on the job...I sh+t you not.
I am by no means trashing the NYPD, the cops down there are the Best. It is a great stepping stone for a New Englander...if you keep your nose and your rep at the Pct clean. Just humble yourself, keep your mouth shut and your eyes open and learn...you can write your ticket to almost anywhere and that is the truth!!
