  • That's BS. I didn't know a single person when I got hired. The evaluation board (who ultimately decides who gets in) gets a report on your bi investigation results w/ a number on it. They don't even know your name. Hooks help later on , but not to get hired.

Once you are being canvassed the only factors that may end your process are failure.
        From the FAQ for the most recent exam:

        10. Do I need to take the examination if I passed the NYS Court Officer-Trainee Examination 45-758 administered in 2009, and I am currently on an eligible list, but I have not been appointed?

        It is anticipated that eligible list from the October and December 2014 Examination 45-784 will be established during Spring 2015. Once the new eligible list is established, the old eligible list (from the 2009 Examination 45-758) will no longer be active.

          I believe the " eligible list" refers to the passing candidates which is any grade they have not get reached out to for canvassing. Those being canvassed are being tested for appointment. I'm currently being canvassed and will be sure to let you know if in spring I receive a letter that says TIMES UP! because I'm sure they will not be through will all my testing by then.

          • Bobby... Most likely the list from the current test will not be certified until next summer at the earliest. There are review criteria for the exam that must be met. Hiring will go on until OCA decides to kill the list, which may or may not happen when the new list is certifird. Generally OCA does not keep more than one list. OCA follows most Civil Service rules but technically does not operate under them. OCA operates under the Rules of the Chief Judge.

              After I finished the whole process in Oct I received a letter stating that I will be put into the pool for the list 45-758 as long as it stays active but once the new list becomes active I will no longer be in the pool.

                I didn't know anyone.

                As far a timeframes....I don't expect anyone to be hired from this latest list until 6-12 months after the results come out. So, For example, if the results come out Aug 1, 2015 the earliest I can see anyone going into an academy is Feb 2016. However since the Court Systens budget run April-March, it's more likely that the first class from this list will begin After April 1 2016. Hiring = Attrition + Budgets. The two exception I can think of that would speed up the process, and maybe some retired guys can comment on, is if we settle the contract and there is a mandate or side letter to keep hiring equal or greater than attrition or a buyout.

                  BobbyTheBulldog; I scored an 87 back in 2009, my candidate number is 10,xxx, got the canvassing letter in early October. Things have been going along steadily, those new lists wont be up till about the summer, but after reading all these older posts it looks like the governing body can do whatever they want so who knows.

                  Just stay out of trouble, watch your blood pressure and weight, get your vision sorted if you need to and keep on trucking

                      This list will generate spring 2015. But we will end up getting our results by the summer. Im just going by what it says on the website under frequently asked questions
