Giving those with High numbers list a chance
    just running some numbers here, IF they were to hire 600 people a year for 4 years with a 1:4 ratio they would get to around 9,600 on the list. IF it was a 1:5 ratio it would be somewhere around 12,000 and IF it was a 1:3 ratio it would be 7200. All of those numbers were run without taking into account the promotional list and the 293 "entitled" applicants....

    Can someone school me on how to search for somebody's name on the list without scrolling through the vastness of it? I am searching for someone I used to know. Something to do with F3 or adobe reader or some sh1t? I am on a mac if it makes a difference. Thanks...

    I have a Mac. Open it in PDF format and click on edit at the top and scroll down to find. Type what your looking for into that and it will highlight all the relevant material.

    I have a mac. Scroll to the bottom and a menu bar should appear, click the second to last icon and it opens up in a new window with a search bar. If you don't see the menu bar, try a few times.

    SO because you have a list number that is on the brink, now the FDNY should have a competitive physical? Seriously?

    No I am saying Cassidy's argument makes sense. You seem to purposely mis****rue comments. The whole fire Dept including merit matters wanted a competitive physical. I am wiling to wait my turn no matter what. It doesn't really matter at this points. I am not a flip floppper.
    You asked what we thought of the article. I'm Saying it makes sense. what was your point in asking the question?

    Since when is Merit Matters the whole FDNY? Even before the FDNY got sued in 07, the FDNY, not Merit Matters, had already decided on the CPAT. This is nothing new! The NOE for this exam has been out for almost a year and a half and now people want to argue about a competitive physical? Where were Cassidy and Mannix, the day the NOE for 2000 came out, renouncing the CPAT?

    IMO a graded physical would have been great, it would weed even more people out, but that's not the case. Hindsight is always 20/20. Especially after you find out your list number.

    was your initial question bait for an argument? I am not looking for one.
    The overwhelming majority of the fire fighters in the Fire dept got on with a competitive physical, they value that part of the test, argue with all of them if you disagree.

    No my original question was, as I asked, for people who did well. I already knew what anybody's opinion would be if you didn't do well because Cassidy isn't talking about you in his op-ed

    Go check the FDNY rant, you've got fdnytolife, already saying he agrees the test should be given every two years!?!? HHHMMMMM? I wonder why he said that???

    As I said a graded physical would have been great but thats not what we were given. We must deal with it as candidates and the FDNY must deal with it because it was their decision.

    How could you already know what peoples opinion would be if they didn't do well?

    Your comment advocating a competitive physical and fdnytolife's comment in favor of giving the test every two years isn't enough proof?

    Or did you really want to know how I knew what your opinion would be?
    I took psychology in college... LOL

    Maybe it should be every 2 weeks, until you like your list #. Then that list can be used for 20 years. If we're discussing how guys on the job feel about our process:

    What's the difference between a watered down physical and someone doing poorly, or not as well as they'd have liked on what guys OTJ consider a watered down written?



    It's a little rough reading comment after comment on here hoping other people fail out of the process. I understand if you're on this forum you want this job bad, but when you start wishing someone elses dream falls through, it just doesn't sound right.
