          no. when i talked to the lady at the western region office last friday, she said they should have my psych results back by tomorrow 10/3. and since there is now a 14 day delay on hiring, it would be a couple of weeks after the psych results came back, before i heard anything.

          but she did say, as long as everything is ok with my psych, the next phone call would be a call from the prison for a start date.

          i do know that NC DOT instated a hiring freeze last week. so hopefully this 14day hiring delay for DOC will not turn into a freeze too.

          so, have you heard anything? if not, when they call ask them about the hiring delay.

              UHHH.........its 567 questions and it sucks. it will probably take 1 1/2 to 2 hrs to take it.

              so they are sending you everything in the mail? Alexander CI requires everyone to come in and fill out the paperwork. that would have been nice, so i could have done my TB test ahead of time.

                  not sure what to say about the psych, but the one i took last week was 567 questions. i would assume they would all be the same.

                  as far as Alexander, it doesn't seem much different than any other facility from what i have been reading. other than the 14 day delay the state has right now, and i had to wait a few weeks for the position to be open.

                          It is uniform across the state. The test is the MMPI. It is a personality inventory. Questionable cases are sent for review by a mental health professional. At times I doubt the test's accuracy in identifying those individuals we should avoid hiring. With that said I'll profess I am far from being qualified to judge the validity of any psychological testing instrument *but* I am qualified at identifying persons who have no business working in a correctional environment. Off of my rant and back to the subject; the test is in the 500 question range as others here have mentioned.

                          P.S. Punctuation is your friend.

                            DOT needs more than a hiring freeze! The time frames can really vary on a good number of things, i.e. how short the facility in question is on staff, number of applicants being processed, timeliness of facility personnel staff in processing their part of the application as well as the REO, and lastly MONEY. The state will put this before anything else. You see, when a position sits vacant the agency continues to receive the salary funding for it. If it is vacant then the lapse salary isn't paid out and the agency uses it to fill shortfalls in other areas of the Dept. budget.

                            Patience young grasshopper. Your time will come.
