    Wife of a guy at facility tested a couple weeks ago. All she had to do was the written portions. It's also taken off of the IDOC website.

    • Wow. Im thinking of switching my choice from Pontiac to Stateville or Menard. How is it working at any of these places if anyone can chime in?

      • I would recommend anyone still waiting for a call to consider one of the 4 designated RTU facilities. We've been pretty much hiring nonstop. Talked to a COT the other day who had a score of 49.

          I'm at Pontiac. It's not too bad, lots of overtime if you want it.

              • 2046 Well they called me about 2 weeks ago which is VERY early than they usually call people. They said Pontiac CC will be calling me with orientation dates before this Friday if not call them back. And you do get paid during the academy is what I have heard

                    • How long after the academy do they place u somewhere?

                      Is the wage freeze ever going to be uplifted?

                        as long as there isnt a state budget there will be a freeze on the steps. I doubt the governor is going to sign a union contract either.

                        after you finish the academy, you get to your facility and have an orientation (at stateville it was 1 week in a classroom) and then attended roll call and placed at an assignment like everyone else. youre supposed to have a "shadow week" once youre on deck (an assignment).
                        Sometimes there's justice...sometimes there's just us.
