I took a test the other day for DHS at the office of personnel management and I was wondering if anyone else has done the same? Is this a partcularly easy or difficult position to get on with? I scored and 83 which I imagine is about average. Anyone have any stories?

Oh and where do you find where you're ranked on the list? I can see my score online, but not my ranking.

I took several tests for various state jobs. My scores ranged from 89 to 96. As far as I know, there is no way to see where you "rank." I was finally called for an interview on a job (not my highest score) and was hired, but there were some tests I took weeks before that I never heard anything on. Depending on the department, it may take a while. The hiring process can be slow. Good luck!

RB, do you have any other info that can help this poster?

I am in the process of seting up a time to take the test. From what i understand, each department has it's own test. I guess, look for the job you would like and take that test. Can we take more than one test at a time?

I'm not sure about each department having it's own test. Depending on the type of job that may be true. The reason I took different tests was because I was applying for different titles.

I think you can take more than one test at a time, but I'm not sure you would want to. I'm a pretty fast test taker, and I found it took me between 1-1/2 and 3 hours for the tests.

They usually send a letter stating your ranking. When there is an opening, they usually start by pulling the top 10 (or whatever depending on the agency) scores and calling those people. A lot of times, the people are no longer interested in that position.
