          What was your score from the idoc test?

              Yes ma'am we have a writ officer assignments as a 5 day. I work at the NRC portion of Stateville and MANY inmates here are going back and forth to court. Anywhere between 40 to 100 (sometimes more) go to court daily.

                  This is true about the background checks. You can be hired and then they complete it while you are in the academy/working but of course the job offer in contingent on you passing it!


                  Edit:

                  I just read both threads front to back. The account from the academy is from 2008. Now I'm guessing it could be similar, I'm sure the food hasn't changed much, but this is 6 years ago. Has anyone gone thru recently that can confirm or deny the accuracy of the account.

                  Also something was said about living in cheap dorms after the academy and at the institution if someone didn't want to move.

                  Does IDOC have on site dorms for employees to live in/rent. *after the academy*

For those of us who haven't gotten the call yet I think it would be safe to assume we just need to hold out hope for that 2nd class in January. Again, congrats and best of luck to those of you who have made it. Be sure to keep us updated. And a fresh updated version of the IDOC Academy review that Blackjack made may be in order???
                    If no one gives a comprehensive report, I fully intend on giving a weekly report of what's going on in the academy... some say you shouldn't go in knowing everything, well I hate surprises, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

                      I can vouch that the academy is pretty much the same other than the card system that my class was the first class to not use them. I went through the academy 2 years ago. They do inspections every morning the classes are Boring except for a few.
                      There's a test every week and you break for the weekend at around noon. They make you tear down your bed every week and make it up every Monday.... I slept on top of my covers every week for the 6 weeks I slept in my pj pants and cadet sweatshirt. As a word of advice do not go into corrections knowing everything if you already know just let the officers explain it to you anyway. Consequences of a know it all is bad... Even at the academy they will remind you real quick you are just a cadet! But as you become an officer and return to the academy for other training they will treat you
                      Different lol!
                      As far as I know Stateville has dorms but Eiba can confirm this? I don't think Pontiac has them anymore from what I can remember?

                        I spoke with central screening and they said you WILL NOT be called unless your background check is complete. She said they usually wait until they know who will be going to an institution and then conduct their background check. So, there's no way you'll be in the academy without your background being done. I asked this very question and this is what I was told. I'm assuming it's done this way to save money and not waste valuable time. That's why phone calls and dq letters are out in the exact same week.

                          I got a DQ letter but my score was 57 and I was signed up for Statesville. I heard they only do background checks when they want to hire but I don't know if that is true because there are tons of people with a better score than me waiting on the Statesville list, so not sure if it is even worth appealing. I might do it just because I'm on winter break and have nothing else to do lol.
