The state's revenue stream has been fairly healthy during this time period, too. So,
I'm at a loss to explain it - other than to say that, perhaps they wanted to place more
entry level people upstate. I sincerely hope that your experience with this is better
than mine. Did they tell you how long you can expect to wait for the results? It took
them five months to e-mail the results for the 2014 exam.
I haven't been told anything regarding results. I am familiar with taking the CITY exams, and from my experience with that, I don't expect results anytime soon. There's a note on the site stating that there was an exceptionally larger applicant pool so I'm guessing the results will take some time to post.

What exam did you take that got you in the door? I don't know a lot of people who got in through the PCO/PCT.

There were a lot of people who took it in 2014, too. So, maybe it will be about six months or so. I don't remember how long it took in 2009. The thing I remember most about that one were all the hiring freezes they slapped on. Getting hired then was truly a matter of timing and some luck. Hardly any canvass letters were sent out.

PCO. I believe the other exam that was going on at the same time was the Labor Services Representative test -- same exam/questions.

No, I mean the test you took for your current position as a state employee.

Oh, okay. Taking a test for one specific occupational area is probably a better
way to get work with state government. The agencies that recruit for the title
(more than likely) have a better handle on their staffing needs. When I contacted
several agencies that I had an interest in joining, they told me that they don't
recruit from the PCO list.

So the results were posted for those of who have taken the exam in April-2017. As expected, I see a lot of 110's, 105's, and 100's. I scored a 100. When I scanned the sub lists that I'm on (a total of 12), the lists are much smaller. Anywho - good luck everyone!

I agree that this is a money maker for thus and other civil service jobs. They pick by ethnic backgrounds. I just finished an assignment at a State agency. I was kind of dumbfounded to see the majority of people were Chinese. I was so perplexed and thought to myself...(can't think out loud) where are the other people who have equal rights, like white people. I found it difficult to work with most of these orientals as they click together and make you feel left out. Nasty attitudes like ..."Leave me alone." I'm glad I read this blog as to know why so many people who scored above and beyond were not called they were probably your All-American loving citizens. This Governor is a joke. What happened to Equal Opportunity Employment.

How do you find the numbers in the sub-lists one is on. I have not found a link. Thank you for help with finding that info.
