      How do you like the job and how was the academy?

      Job is alright. Its busy in the 5 boroughs, overtime is available. Having gone through the co academy and this one, this one was a lot less stringent. Academics are more a focus at the academy then PT, but dont be lazy. Give 100%. Your 100% may be different than someone elses, but dont be a slug. It'll follow you.

      Also if you've never fired a handgun before, I suggest you get some time in with that. Biggest reason people dont make it through is being unsafe with the glock 19 or they cant hit anything with it.

      Thank you for the insight.

  • Hey All,
    Does anyone have any updates?

    Comment


    • Should be an academy class starting in January.
      Not sure what part of the month.
      Not sure if PO, trainee, or a combination.

      Comment


      • PO trainees have been processing; not sure if potentials would be rolled into any soon-to-be class or deferred to later in the year. I'm assuming the latter....

        • We should be hearing soon if that’s the case. Wish we had a date for the next class.

          Comment


          • Next class will be Jan feb or march at the latest. The department has sent out an email to those on the job where vacancies are expected to be, in case those currently employed would like to transfer.

            • New parole class will begin on January 20, 2019. Calls to candidates with parole bureau assignments started this week. I know this because I am a parole officer who graduated from the last class in September 2018.

                What does that mean? No call yet for me.

            • FrankCone was right. I received a call last week and accepted the job offer. I report to the academy on Jan. 20th.

                Took the test in 2017 and scored a 90. I finished the process in May 2018.

              • Off the parole officer or trainee list? Open competitive or transitional?

                Regarding the regions you selected, did they include the NYC boroughs and Long Island?

                  Yes, I’m downstate so I wanted to remain downstate.

                  That's really frustrating, sorry to hear that. Have you reached out to your investigator at all? I was told average 6-9 months for a call unless you receive a letter. Seems like you're right at the end of that, so hopefully you will hear something soon. I have read on here that people can get called right up until the academy start date, but I take most things I read on here with a grain of salt unless they are from someone currently assigned to an area office. Good luck!

                  I get the average response of, "no news is good news". It is frustrating. Hopefully they are still calling for this class but I doubt it. It would be nice if the investigators could give some insight.

                  Thank you.

              • I know someone who was called 2 days before our academy class in July 2018, because the person who was supposed to take the job dropped out. The investigation process can be difficult. However, as long as your were COMPLETELY honest with your investigator, and there was nothing terrible that happened at a prior job, you're probably in good shape. There's nothing wrong with calling the investigator and asking if they have all the information they need to complete your background.

                As far as when you will receive your academy call, mine was 3 weeks before the July 2018 academy started.

                  All is good with my investigation. My investigation was actually completed before the last class that went in so I’m really not sure what the hold up is or how the selection process works.

              • It must be frustrating, as the investigator can only tell you so much. Keep your head up. Good luck.

                    Im otj too, scored a 90. Called EIU about 2 weeks ago and was informed they still haven’t reached my score yet. Thought the transitional list would’ve been priority like the SL list for the Sgt exam but guess not
