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...
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?
"The city has appealed the Judge's ruling that it intentionally discriminated against minority candidates, though it did not challenge his finding that the 1999 and 2002 exams had a disparate impact on people of color. The Second Circuit Court of Appeals could issue its ruling in the next couple of months."
I'm not sure if just the disparate impact charge allows Garafuis to force the city to hire the 293 or if the intentional discrimination is what gave him the ability to force such policies on them.
I feel like I remember reading somewhere that one of the rulings is what allowed the judge to go so far, I just don't remember where. Anybody else have any idea?
So any guesses as to what they are going to do for the 6019 guys that went through the process already regarding our background and stuff. I mean they definitely still have our folders with all that stuff we had to hand in as well as consults with the FDNY doctors regarding prior conditions and the written psych results. You think we are going to have to repeat and hand in everything again or do you think they will use info they already have on file that doesn't "go bad"? Obviously we have to do the medical, CPAT, and update our backgrounds but what about the other information/results/consults that aren't time sensitive?
