They know they are never going to be a Trooper but they also know they don't have to go looking for a job for a little while too.
    Yeah I have seen some of the same people at my NYSUP exam back in November. I just thought because of the more rigorous job demands and the caliber of people ultimately desired for positions in NYSP this would invariably thin the herd so to speak come test day.

        From what everyone is saying it sounds like Feb 9th when i take the test im going to be surprised when i see all these jokers.

        I agree with you Light Guardian, you would think the caliber of people taking the exam would be different from other exams. Better chances for us.

          I don't believe the purple has any other meaning except to highlight the silver service bars.
          Actually, the bar is grey (not silver) and the hash marks are purple. Once you get 4 hash marks, it's hard to tell which is the background color, and which color are the hashes.

          But yes, four hashes means at least 20 years on.

            They send them all to me, and ask me to decide.


            Did you go to a tutorial? It was explained there.

            Basically, the company that wrote the exam gave personality tests to lot's of successful police officers, and culled certain traits. They match your responses to those of people in the industry. I've over simplified it, but that's fairly close.

                  • Nice post NYIllini. Thanks for the information. I stopped hanging out with my friends when i graduated HS because they were the wrong people to be hanging around with. Around that time is when I got all my tickets, but since then I have been working full time, going to school full time, working out, and hanging out with just my girlfriend. I'm trying to do all I can do to make it clear I have changed and learned from my mistakes. Im taking the NJ civil service test, NYSP, and NYPD tests. And if I ever did get offered employment with any of them I would be sure to tell them the truth about everything, and not just half the truth hoping they won't find out.

                      So you have just a purple bar now, right?

                        Shorter time than what the website says:

                        When will I get my score?

                        Candidates should expect grades 10 –12 weeks after taking the examination. If you have moved but did not notify us of your new address, please update your contact information.

                            That's what I said. We'll see, I'll say at least 8 weeks.

                              Oh ok. We had a cell phone issue over at the academy in Albany as well. I didn't know if that was the same one you were talking about.

                              • I took the test on the 26th in harlem and the thing that ticked me off the most was not peoples appearances but the fact that EVERYONE and their mother had to go to the bathroom. I honestly think people just went to the bathroom to move around a little bit. Test itself didn't start till almost 10.

                                One of the proctors was busting my tomatoes and said he wasn't going to let me in because he looked at my ID ( i am from RI) and knew i was a Patriot and Red Sox fan. He probably helped me out a litltle bit by making me laugh which calmed me down.
