    Damn, moping the floors and keeping the SPA in pristine condition really takes a toll on ya. You still look great in the pic though, Mechanixman.

    Does anyone know about this new CS test where you are put on a state wide list? I think it sucks as to you only being able to be put on the list of your residence preference.

    It's not like you would have any shot for your non-res town choices anyway, unless you are a veteran or have 402a/b preference. It prevents cities like Boston from exhausting their list like I think they did in 2007ish and gives more applicants to smaller towns that may have few or no people on their resident lists. Plus you get transit automatically, whereas before you had to specifically list it as a choice.

    I can see instances of people getting cards where they normally wouldn't and a little less of the other way around. Yes, it increases competition but I don't see that being an issue.

    Does anyone know who sends out the cards, whether it is the City/Town or Civil Service themselves? I had a problem with the address C.S. had so I changed it online via the MaCS. Just not sure if they use the license mailing address or the one online (MaCS). Any help would be great.

    "Cards" are sent via email with the new system. Make sure that is correct.

    In addition to an email or just letters? I just don't want to miss an opportunity because they mail It to an incorrect address. An email to CS went unanswered.

    Do you still have the same email address from 31 May when the email notifications were sent out regarding the test date? If you do, I think you should be all set. As for them emailing you back, it takes about a week...at least from my experience. Good luck.

    I took the NH test at Great Bay Community College AGAIN this morning. A few notes. It's $40 as opposed to $100. You get your scores in 2 weeks, as opposed to 10 months, and you WILL receive job offers before your official scores come out. There is no magic plastic bag to put your pocket contents in, you don't have to toss your medium regular dunks, and there are actual NH LEO's in the room not retired substitute teachers. I noticed all the Officers were from different, relatively small, agencies. And they ALL had both Tasers and Pistol Lights.....don't often see either in MA.

    Hello everyone, I am brand new to this site and this past civil service exam was my first. I was hoping to get some clarification on the way that civil service eligibility lists work.

    On the current list of my resident town I am twelve spots from the top with a score of 100. Above me are six non residents with 402 a or b preference, one disabled vet resident with a 96, four residents with vet preference with scores ranging from 92-96. Then myself (non vet, resident with 100)

    What I don't know is hiring based mainly on preference or score? I was initially thrilled to receive my score, until the list was released and I was stilled 12 from the top. I have received contradicting information from different people saying either scoring was the biggest factor or preference. I know an interview, background check, etc. will most likely be factored in the most, but my town is hiring two or three officers soon and I am wondering if I should even expect an email/card?

    Thank you all in advance for any information.

    I think, don't hold me to it, but the 402a candidates are at the top of every list. They'll get a card, but chances are they could have gotten one from 15 other PD's already. If they're hiring 3, don't quote me on this, but I think the math is 2x the number of spots +1 get cards... So 7 cards would go out.

    Someone with more knowledge on this please feel free to correct me. I just remember reading something like that here.

    Resident d-vets
    Resident vets
    Resident non-vets
    Non-resident d-vets
    Non-resident vets
    Non-resident non-vets

    Pvt. Cowboy is correct. The system for calling the list is 2n+1. So if theming hiring 3, they would call 7.

    Everyone tied with that seventh person as well if I understand correctly? Also, theoretically if they were only to hire one, a resident vet with say, an 88 on the exam could receive a card and not a non vet resident with 100? It seems like the score would not have any effect if there were 7 or 8 resident names ahead with vet preference?

    As long as they pass the exam, 402a/b and resident vets go to the top of the list, regardless of their score.
