  • What's the facial hair policy in the academy and on the job?

    CCDOC was clean shaven every morning and at lunch if you grew quickly. OTJ you could have a beard with a "beard cArd" from any doctor.

      My buddy who works at Stateville has the most ridiculous beard and no mustache... its very lumberjacky, and borderline disgusting...lol... also I know a few guys on the CPD football team from IDOC that also have that going on. Sooo OTJ it can't be too tough.

              I got the call from Pontiac on the 11th.
              Orientation is Dec 19th and Jan 2nd. Academy starts Jan 5th.

              I tested on Oct 7, received my score of 74 on Nov 24.

              When I received the call, the Lieutenant said my background was still waiting to pass, but I still got the conditional offer.

              Been reading all I can, so hopefully I'm prepared.

              • Just got in from orientation... I will say I was very surprised by the hospitality shown by the staff over at Stateville.. you read horror stories, and I was expecting everyone to be bland and have an attitude... I don't think I saw a non smiling face the whole 8 hours I was there.

                  What kind of clothes did you wear to orientation? I was only told no shorts and derogatory images on shirts. Does that mean jeans and a plain t-shirt are fine? Or should I dress it up a bit?

                    Why are the days so split for Pontiac? 19th and Jan 2nd?!

                      The Sgt who called me said, "casual" so I did nice pair of slacks, collared shirt, NO tie...seemed to be the trend, however, some people wore t shirts, jeans and gym shoes and received no grief.

                      • No clue. Just what I was told. Originally it was for the 22 and 2. But they bumped it up for some reason.

                          Do you live near Pontiac or know much about the facility/anyone that works there?

                              Nope, I'm like 1 hour away. And know nothing about it. During testing, they said Pontiac will be hiring for sure, so I made them #1.
