      • What's the written test like? Is it the same as it was 4-5 years ago?

        It was an old book and you read a bunch of stories and answered questions if I remember right

          • Any body have info on how many classes will be heading out in the future? My gf just applied, and were curious how soon she can get everything done.

            Side note, I've been working at Pontiac for about a year and a half, and I personally feel that Pontiac is the safest place to work. Yes, its maximum security segregation, but they are typically locked up 24/7. If they come out, they are cuffed. You typically have a partner with you or very close. Id feel much better on Pontiac's North house 1 gallery (which in my opinion, is the worse place to work in the prison), then some control panel of any other prison with 100 gen pop guys roaming around who could do whatever they want with you. Just my 2 cents

                    60 is actually a good score. And Stateville will always be more competitive being closer to Chicago

                    • Stateville is competitive but if they have a class with 20+ people then you should be good with a 65. A buddy of mine got in with a 69 in the feb 2016 class

                              Its a boring day. Some paperwork like health insurance, new CMS 100, direct deposit. Blood work, they take blood and give you a TB shot. Also for dixon they make you pee in a cup twice. So when you first get there you go pee, than immediately afterwards you go pee again. They prob wont tell you that though so dont empty your bladder the first time. Also the first time you pee you can only drink one small glass of water every half hour. so it helps if you you drink up before you come.
