Hello fellow future FF. I want to start by wishing everyone good luck on the FDNY hiring process. I have several questions regarding this process which may have already been answered in the past. Maybe some of you guys can answer some of them. I am currently serving in the Military (Army) and my contract will be over in June 2013. I scored pretty good on the FF test and I am now afraid that they might call me in before my contract in the Military is over. What would happen if they call me for physical exam, CPAT or Academy entry dates if I'm still in the military? Would they just throw me on the end of the list and keep on hiring the following numbers? or would they just give me an Academy date after I get done with my contract?.
My other concern is about the Residency credit documents. I was only able to find some bank account statements from 2010-2011. I have W-2 from 2007-2009. I also have a driver's license from NY showing my address in NYC. I was informed by one of my fellow team mates that also took the test that if I show them some documentation stating that I entered the Military from NYC, that could also serve as proof for the residency credit as well. Any takes on this matter?
Again, I apologyze if these questions have been answered in the past and really appreciate your guy's help. Thanks.
When you come off AD and you have been called to start the hiring process you just have to contact DCAS and you would then start processing for the next class. That's how it has been in the past so i'm sure that it will be the same now. Not sure about the residency though. I'm sure if you werent living in NY and have proof prior to enlistment at MEPS then you should be good to go.
Then somehow once its done, and you reflect upon your experience there... you will do so quite fondly.
I am sure there a cheaper solutions but this is pretty cool

that box is pretty expensive, maybe just get a regular sledge and a tire.
if the appeal goes in our favor, does that mean that the 293 priority hires are off the table? or would they still go in?
I can't take it... the anxiousness of starting this whole processes is killing me. I checking out this thread everyday hoping to here some amazing news.
I am still fit and will prove it, those little boys who are in they're early 20's have another thing coming if they think us 6019'ers will be messing around this time. Been there Done that!! I will not waiver, committed to the cause, we will fight the good fight and leave it all out on the table.
So is it only 300 off of the promo list? I'm #21xx and hear i could be getting stuff in the mail as early as June/July? Is this possible?
Anybody know if they plan on holding the practice cpat courses at the rock again? Or when that would start?
Just wondering for those of you OTJ. If the worst happens and these 293 priority hiring/ retro active seniority hires actually get on the job, what kind of response will they get from those of you who got on the right way and have been risking their lives for years?
Could you trust your lives to these people? And how much would seeing them have seniority over you after probably sitting on their @$$es for the last 10-13 years grate on you. Cassano seems pretty resigned to hiring them at this point and I know the final resolution will be with the second circuit court of appeals but has the union tried fighting this? Something like, it creates a more hazardous work environment?
maybe iam asking to much but would anyone otj or been through the process mind shedding a little more light on the investigation process. we all know not to lie to them and all but what is the initial interview like? other than totally nerve racking iam gonna studder my face off probly. If i studder and flub can you fail the interview and thats it?
When I went through the process for the 6019 list you had to show up to metro tech with all of the into they told you to get. You sat down with an investigator and they checked off everything to make sure you had it and then you left. That was the last time I saw my investigator. She called me once to clarify some info but that was it. The only other time i spoke with her was when I called looking for any info about an upcoming class. I don't have any felony's but trust me my record isn't squeaky clean. I passed with a 36 month stip. Don't stress too much. Just remember honesty is the best policy.
Yeah I had no idea what to expect when I got asked to go down. Nerves were definitely kicking in right before I walked in the office especially when I was the only one there at the time.
I have this gut feeling that the scores will be in the mail this week. I wonder if they'll break down the point scoring like they did last time? I kind of doubt it for some reason...
