    So when you drop off your packet and they call to have an interview with the BI I thought that your background was cleared? But supposedly it takes longer than that to get the certification. Once you receive that then your background is cleared?
    When the BI calls you he has already began looking and verifying your background. When I met my BI he was flipping through my packet and I saw a red "VERIFIED" stamp across my jobs (even though I provided GOOD letters he still called). He had also checked to see if I had any arrests, etc. He did not call my references until AFTER my BI meeting. Once he's all done (it only took him two days after my meeting), he sends your packet to the Merit Board where they also look through it and make the determination whether they are going to certify you. I KNOW the merit Board is looking at mine right now because I was called by my BI this past Monday morning for a quick clarification on something that the MB kicked my packet back for. It was clarified immediately and sent back to the Merit Board. I am PRAYING for a cert. letter this coming week.

    • @berwynguy if things don't go well with ccdoc or cpd you should try for ILDOC. I don't believe there is a age limit with them as there are quite a few people in the academy with me that are in their late 40s nearing 50s. We even have a couple 18 year Olds lol. Additionally their medical exam consists of a simple physical conducted at the prison you are hired at.

            As always you've been the outlier. You might get on faster reapplying with the 2014 group!

                  Gotcha. I have it on auto so it started printing landscape, but I thought it was wrong. I'll go back to landscape. Thanks.

                              equalsworld, I REALLY appreciate the support and it's cool how everyone here keeps each other positive and off the ledge!

                              Seriously, I probably would NOT apply to IDOC, I own a home that I would NOT want to leave as I *think* you might have to relocate to work for IDOC? I have always wanted to work for CPD or CCCO, those are the only places I will apply for. If I had been younger I would have tried for Berwyn or Cicero or even a different suburban dept. I'm old (lol) so this is the end of the line for me. It's CCCO or bust!
