  • My Chances of Being Hired/Sponsored?

    Hello to Everyone!

    I know you guys/gals have heard this a lot, however, I would like to know somewhat of my chances...at least from your point's of view

    I recently took the FBAT/CJBAT (Basic Abilities Test for Florida) and I scored between a 92%-95%. I've applied to several Correctional Institutes in hopes of being hired and sponsored through an academy. And I've received a few that have sent back the supplemental application.

    I have NO criminal history, somewhat of a bad driving record, I use no tobaco/alcohol,etc..

    What am I looking at?

      Define "somewhat of a bad driving record"?....

      -suspended/revoked license before?
      -DWI's?
      -Careless Driving?
      -Speeding tickets?

        Suspended due to late payment in 2007...fixed that a day or two after it. Sent payment in and it was received a day after deadline.

        Also, 3 speeding tickets -2006/2008/Early 2010

                Hahaha! Emails like this are flooding the web. I wonder how many people fall for these mindless tricks?

                On another note, I was accepted to the academy and start in a few months. Met with one of the coordinators and they said I might have the possibility of a tough time being hired due to my driving history. (Roughly 2 Speed Tickets & other moving viol. a Suspension a few years ago, but I've gotten some type of ticket every year since 2004)

                This made me a bit uneasy, and all they could say was make sure you are glued to your books hit them hard and make an average of A's on exams...this can help you out with getting hired. What do you guys think of this?

                I'm pretty uneasy right now, I know it's been my fault and no one else to blame no matter the circumstances for my driving mistakes.

                  BUT, I expect they still took your money and enrolled you in the academy........................................


                  REMEMBER above all------------BOTTOM LINE------------the self sponsor academies really only care about your tuition money. They will tell you everything you want to hear to get that check...................they could really care less if you get hired in the end or not.
                  Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

                  My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

                    That's true. I'm going to call several Recruiting Officers for the DOC to see if possibly my Driving History will be a quick disqualifier.

                    I appreciate the feedback IOWA as well as Everyone else...

                      Ended up calling a few corrections facilities and the consensus I got was my driving shouldn't be a great issue at all. I just have to make sure I keep it clean from here on out.

                        BSO deputy you currently work for new York or are you with Brevard or Broward sheriffs office? I'm currently a NYC correctional officer and was looking to relocate in Florida.

                          That is good....................................just remember the thing about the self sponsor academy and the $$$$$$$$

                            Yep I am a NY State C.O. now. I used to work for the Broward Sheriff's Office. Florida does accept lateral transfers so contact the recruiting department of the agency that you are interested in and they can inform you on what you need to get the transfer process going... I know that Broward is not currently hiring though. Good luck.
