You will need to e-mail Human Resources and they will change it for you.
Thank You sir! I appreciate it.
For that municipality, 4th is a pretty good spot to be in.
A couple of questions...anyone hear anything about cities that will be hiring more than others. I got a 98 and residency is Holbrook so i am #7 there, but looking at surrounding areas. Any advice would be appreciated
Does anyone know if any towns or cities are looking for any language preferences? Specifically Cantonese-Chinese?
Good to hear, why specifically for that town?
same here 4th for my town only topped by vets.
Most towns in MA have very small populations, so by default they have small police departments that don't hire often. Yours is on the larger side when compared to most other municipalities.
Not having residency really messed up my hopes for every town I applied to.
Oh well... Looks like I'll be hoping for another non-civil service agency and looking outside of this state for something.
Don't get down you would be surprised how many people turn it down or just can't hack it. Ive heard of towns out in western ma calling as far as E bridgewater. You'll have your shot.
Has anyone else tried making a town selection change? I made a change on Wednesday, however, as of today the change was reverted back to the original selection.

That and the fact that the folks in front of you Vet or not, still need pass through PT, Medical, and BI... which can/will eliminate a few.
Yes I did and the same thing happened to me. I did it a second time and it worked
I scored a 94 and didn't even crack the top 200 in any of my towns. Not a resident in a CS community. The lottery ticket analogy is a good one. It's a cool surprise if you win something; just don't budget for it.
How do you guys know that they are veterans in front of you, it just shows Im #5
How do you guys know they are veterans in front of you I'm #5 in my community and am kind of interested to know
I was in the top 15 in one, top 50 two others, and in the top 1100 for MBTA. It does not matter though. :smug:
Thank you for the advice.
For now I'm just going to keep my head up and my fingers crossed.
On the initial page where it shows your rank for the 4 towns you picked... look underneath the town... it will say Total Police Standings for YOURTOWN, click the link...
I have a question... on SOARIS, when you view your town's specific list with all the names (the spreadsheet type chart), is there a way to know the total number of people on the list without literally counting them allllllllllllllllllllll one by one? I know my rank but I'm curious out of how many in total. Thanks for any help!
Highlight the whole list from SOARIS, then copy and paste in Excel or another spreadsheet program. Each row will be numbered so then you won't have to count.
Just count them...you will have more than enough time while you wait for that coveted card.
I'll get right on that....... didn't really need a smart aleck answer though a few days after someone already answered the question....
And you want to get on this job? Better get yourself some thinker skin there junior.
Now go grab your fuckin shine box!
Had to straighten out a few things, but all in all I did alright. I'm 19 on the list for my residency town, which is Methuen :unsure:. I got top 50 for 2 of the non-resident towns and the other I'm 284 :stomp:.
Good luck though fellas!!!!!!!!
