  • PA State Correction

    Am I reading it correctly that you have to be a PA resident to even take the written test? Anyone have info on this? Processing for PA Trooper right now, and that didn't have a residency requirement. Weird that corrections would have a res req. though.

    Thanks

    Not sure about the residency issue. However if you are not a vet your odds of getting a job with the PA DOC is next to nil. I took my test back in july 2014 and scored a 93. I have no record at all, not even a speeding ticket. Fantastic credit etc.

    After 4 months of not hearing anything back from any institution I called the hiring official of Graterford(one of our largest Max sec prisons). He said they "haven't hired anyone who's scored lower then 96 in the last 6 years". This is, as he himself put it, due to the fact that vets get +10 on their scores, which as long as they score a 91 you as a non-vet can not beat their score(a 101). He also said there is a huge influx of vets applying so i would likely not hear back due to that.

    Can you get a job? Yes. Score 96-100 and you'll interview atleast.

      thanks for the info. I would still try, I mean, why not? But it won't even let me register for the test online because i'm not a resident. Bummer
