    How is it gonna work with the city residency credit? Does it have to be the same address for the 12 month period, or can it be more, as long as it is in the boroughs, and you have proof.

    The city often projects lower numbers in situations like this. I would hope they are being conservative for the judge and everyone in order to cover themselves

    does anyone know if they offer a position to one person with a score of a 97 if they legal have to offer it to everyone with a 97?

    Are the academy hours monday-friday, 8 hour days? For PD it was 8 hours 35 mins a day, and we built up an extra 6 days off in our time bank. Very little overtime, maybe 12 hours in the 6 months.

    I only ask because people said the academy days are long and never ending... does it just seem never ending or are we building ot/time. I'd be shocked if that was the case.

    I saw someone state something similar to this on the RANT. I don't know how much truth there is to it. Maybe someone with knowledge on the subject could answer it.

    Who ever is called for the last class that's it.... There could be another 3000 with the same score and it won't matter.

    Go through the medical, the psychological and make it to the Academy. Show up when they tell you and leave when they dismiss you. You'll get some O/T in every check, but don't be concerned with that. I think counting hours and stacking up O/T is getting a bit ahead.

    I'm sure that I'm not alone here....but when I was in you-alls shoes, I woulda gone through the Academy for free if it meant being on the job at the end....

    STOP READING THE RANT! You're not going to get much good info there.

    you don't get any OT in the academy...and when you get to the field you are not allowed to do OT for the first 6 months

    There is indeed OT during the academy; if the week goes over 40 hours- and it does- youre compensated appropriately. No that it matters. If you make a peanut an hour, youll pull down 1.5 peanuts per hour for OT.

    Dont spend it all in one place...

    On a regular basis? No.
    Quite often, you'll be meeting outside the gates (usually somewhere around 0500) with the rest of your squad and marching in together. You arrive, move from one class to another and leave as a squad. No stragglers. If you are late, you'll be dealt with in a completely fair manner. And by "completely fair" I mean everyone will pay for your inability to get there on time. What FDsouth outlined was just one method.

    Usually within the first couple of days, you will be formed into your squads. Before that, you'll be highly encouraged to ask around to see if others need to make carpool arrangements and start swapping phone numbers.

    The M60 is NOT an option for you. Try looking up when you'll have to catch it to be there before 0500. While Randall's Island has some wonderful newly renovated softball fields; it is also home to a large Men's homeless shelter and Psychiatric Facility. Some of these folks will be your bus mates.

    Get into a carpool. Along with traveling in uniform to/from, you'll be carrying your books (Yes, we require you to read.), lunch, snacks, drinks, SPARE SOCKS, etc. You don't want to be making this commute on public transit.

    Oh, I'm beginning to sense it again. It's kind of cyclical.
    Everyone is starting to get the "I know it all" attitude and filling everyone up with BS that they don't know what they're talking about.

    When were the candidates from the promotional exam first notified to begin processing such as the 12 - week CPAT course?

    Was it in August or September?

    I've got a family and would be leaving top pay to make the switch. So, I kind of have to be concerned with that.

    I know you're trying to help but let's allow the guys on the job to answer the questions about the job. Bad information is worse than no information in this process.

    Dude I wouldnt worry to much about your list number... they ran thru 870 EMS guys and maybe got 220 (and thats if all of them pass CPAT). They will get up to 7000 for sure. I know the city said they will hire 2400 but i actually think it will be more than that. If 50 retire per month thats 2400 in 4 years and add the 650 FF short as it is and thats 3000 new hires. You'll be alright.
