    Yayy. Thanks so much for your help. When I called HR after Applying a few weeks ago the person indicated that the process does take four months. I guess I'm worried because of how competitive the applicant pool is. On the posting they asked for a cover letter resume and a 2 pg statement on why you qualify and I think I did a pretty god job of selling myself. However I'm sure others did a good job at that as well. In the mean time I will just keep my fingers crossed.

    I'm also waiting on westchester probation to call I took that exam last year and did pretty well. So we will see
    Mobility helps also. It is common for folks to move for the position. If not you are forced to wait until the next posting for your area in 1,2 or maybe 3? Years.

    I agree you are qualified and competitive but it is a very good job that lots of folks are applying for. Good luck.

    My .02 cents... Remember, this position is a mix 50/50 mid law enforcement/social work. If your District is like mine, it's 70/30. U will be issued credentials/badge/and a gun. Biggest struggle I've seen is people being too social work driven and not adjusting well to being a LEO. We are there to help people; however, the safety of the community is our primary goal.

    Also, regarding the hiring process. Each district operates independent from Washington. Meaning they hire how they (the Chief) want to. Each district does things differently.

    In my experience they sent a letter snail mail which included a prearranged interview time. I just had to call and confirm the appointment. Same thing with the second interview. However, I was contacted by phone when they made the job offer.

    Hello,

    I applied for a Pretrial Services Officer position in NY. The position closed Aug 20th. I have a MA and over 6 years or mental health and case management (foster care, juvenile justice, mentally restarted population, substance abuse population etc)type of experiences and currently work for DOCCS (7 months only though). Any idea if they would consider someone like me a good candidate. Also, Does anyone know if they have started calling for the position, is it by phone or email. I am really hoping they call me but it would be nice to get an idea if I should get my hopes up or not.
    MA in what? Sounds like you have the background it's just a matter of what that particular district is looking for.

    I applied for a probation position in the southern district of Florida back in March/14. I never heard anything back from them. Did anyone else hear or not hear anything about the status of the position. Please if anyone has info please share!
