    Last week of the academy! Been an overall decent experience this far. New class comes in July 23rd. Any questions feel free to ask me. I'll be in Sheridan CC when I graduate. Wondering if anyone got a call from them for the academy?

                I'm starting the academy next week.
                Starting pay is 42432,after 3 months it bumps up to 45816,as a rookie you have 10 vacation days,3 personal days a year and 1 sick day per month,pension after 20 years,health,life and dental insurance,which becomes free after 20 years of service,lots of overtime as i was told by the personel.

                  Would anyone know what might be a good score to be picked for Stateville?

                    Goodguy21 if you had a score above 35 you should be picked for stateville they are always hiring. Americoza health insurance will no longer be free when you retire and the retirement has changed for new hires. This is no longer a good job like it use to be.

                      We filled up papers under the condition i described above but thanx for heads up.
                      I took the job because it's much better than i currently have,still testing for other departments and hopefully will get it soon or later, funny but it seems like every department drops nutches according to employees' posts.
                      Doubt about the passing score though, people i know who were called for two recent classes had scores from 60-90,just food for thoughts.

                        WOW I guess its all about timing. My score was in the mid 70 and didn't get called. I expired in March. Question, I applied in April and haven't heard anything, should I call them?

                          I took my test in March 2012 and got called for the academy in May 2012. I never saw my score before they called me. I got a 75 and most of the people I went to the academy with had a 60 or above. If dwight doesnt close down, sheridan, stateville and dixon will be hiring a lot for the next few academies. DOC is talking about another 4 classes after the one that just started today. @Ibarrae, I would call down to springfield and ask. Couldn't hurt. Good luck Americoza! See you in Sheridan in a few weeks! PS dont eat the meatballs or biscuits and gravy!

                            How long ago did everyone apply? I applied through that link about 5 months ago and I have yet to hear anything from them. Does anyone have a number I can call to see where I stand? Also, some timelines would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys

                              Timing or who ya know is how you get hired with IDOC. I tested March 8th and was standing in the Academy gym emptying my bag out on April 18th. Corrections is FUBAR.

                                What do you mean by emptying out your gym bag? Did you quit while in the academy?
