  • NYS Investigator Exam

    I see that New York is offering the exam for investigator. Does anyone have any information about this position. I know that they are not considered police or peace officers and do not carry, but I wanted to know if anyone knows anything about the job....morale, daily activities, work location, etc....
    As a Corrections Officer, my fundamental duty is to serve my community; to safeguard the lives and property within my jurisdiction; to protect against deception, oppression or intimidation; to prevent violence or disorder; and to respect and preserve the constitutional rights of all.

    I just noticed this position today, and am also interested. I've mostly applied to specific agencies and departments, so i'm unfamiliar with the hiring process. How does it work, applying to NYS department of civil service? Assuming you take and pass the test for investigator, where would you get hired? I didn't feel like the announcement offered a whole lot of information.

          Actually I learned that some agencies hire off the exam that do give them Peace officer status one agency is the NYS Tax department. There are also agencies that do not give them any status.

            This Grade 14 exam is not used to fill the Grade 16 Excise Tax Investigator 1 with the NYS Dept of Taxation and Finance. The Grade 16 investigators are armed peace officer officers and actually get to do some pretty cool joint operations with regard to smuggling cigarettes and booze and the like.

            The DMV also has Grade 16 investigator positions (also not filled from this list) who are armed and do a lot of work with stolen vehicles and identity theft.

            Good luck to all taking this exam.

                I took the exam over here in Western NY. How do you think you did? I would also like to know more about the position and the hiring process. The job announcement didn't really describe much. I "googled" some of the agencies that the job announcement stated would hire from this test and found some interesting articles about investigations they conducted. For example, NYS Department of Taxation and Finance had some interesting tax fraud cases. This agency is of particular interest to me because I will be graduating with my master's in accounting soon and think it will be right up my alley.

                I also did some other research and saw that the most current list (from 2006 exam, I believe) for this position expires in 2012. I don't know if this means we will have to wait until then to potentially be hired or what. It also appeared that not many people from that list were hired. I could be wrong though.

                    I don't believe the results are out yet. You can always check online at the DCS website. You need to login in to ELMS after clicking on job seekers a couple times. I noticed results are posted there about a week before you receive the results in the mail. I hope you did well...the test didn't seem too bad but those are always the ones that surprise you.

                        Nah, nothing yet. I guess it's going to take the full 6 months. How do you think you did? I didn't think it was too bad, thought some of the questions involving acronyms were BS though. i.e. " the DVNS is mostly responsible for all of the following except..." Are we really expected to know what that stands for, and how would that make us any more qualified for the position?

                              Edit: with so many people scoring the same, where does that put you on the list? I'm below a significant number of people that scored the same as me, but are they really ahead of me at this point?
