    I don't think it's the actual background that is taking time. When I went out for testing the recruiter said we were looking at a march or April academy, and you aren't advised you clear background at any point in the process. I guess the only way you know is when they call and offer you a position, which they said is generally only a week to three weeks tops in advance. So basically there's a good chance I've already cleared background but won't know until the academy gets near.

    When you arrive in the morning the recruiter will give you a run down of the process while HR takes your drivers licenses and does whatever it is they do with them. They then come back and give them to you as well as assign u a number which is pinned to ur shirt. There was 60 some names on the list who were invited to test when I was there. Only about 24 showed up. We lost 6 females on the push-up portion. After the physical fitness test is completed you then take the psych and then the interview. At the end of the day you individually turn in all paperwork to the recruiter as he briefly goes over it. So at that point you can ask him any questions u may have. You'll have 24 hours to take a drug test, which there are several locations throughout Las Vegas to choose from.

    I'm also a so cal applicant and turned in my phq packet the next day. The packet isn't too long. I completed it the same night at the hotel. If you want to know what documents will be required and an idea of the interview questions feel free to email me.

    I also applied to the Vegas area, which yes that is the Southern region. I tested at HDSP on 12/3 and have completed everything thus far (fitness test, panel interview, psychological, drug test, and medical exam). So at this point I assume the only thing pending is my background.

    I know they'll say it wont but who knows how that translates in the real world.
    I can't even figure out how I failed a test that I passed. My advice is to just re-test as soon as they let you and see what happens.

    Yes. I meant to say psyche test. Sorry.

    The test some something like 1700 questions and I wasn't in the proper frame of mind.
    I can however re-apply one full year later.
    My question is this:
    Will my failing the written psyche test hamper my chances this time around?
    Do they look at the fact that I failed once as something to disqualify me?
    Any info is appreciated.
    I want this job more than anything.

    I managed to go take the physical test, pass the physical test, yet still fail the physical test.
    The agility test for class III post is a 20.4 second timed test. I did it in 20.2 seconds and was told that I failed. I'm puzzled by this, to say the least, but I intend to go back and take it again in a month or so, and make sure that I test out above class I post levels so there's no doubt that I passed.

    When I was driving around Carson City after the test, I was struck by the natural beauty of the area surrounding the town. I very much hope that I can make it my home in the near future.

    I would very much love me some overtime, I hope there's some available where I end up.
    I was hoping there was some off duty security work that could be picked up for piles of cash, but I wasn't holding my breath.
    That retirement thing sounds like its broken or something. (Colorado's isn't much better, if you plan on going to the end and pulling the pin.) I'll just have to make sure that it's not my only option for when I'm old and bitter (make that older and bitterer.)
    Metro gives 4% for swing and 6% for graves. Being a CO at Metro gives one the potential to make a lot of money since there is a lot of overtime available (24 hours a week if you want it).

    Overtime is very rare at thbe prison I worked in. If you go to the Ely prison I heard there is plenty of it there. You get paid time a nd a half for OT. There is shift differential, but on a 12 hour shift its only paid for 8 hours. Total shift diff is about 50 bucks a check if you work nights. Most prisons are 12 hour shifts. Not sure what you mean by "off-duty work" but when you are off duty you don't do anything work related period. They do have cookies that are made by inmates and sometimes thrown at COs. These cookies aren't the real deal though LOL
