    Just my guess, but I wouldn't expect anything that soon. First wait to see when the first class of Promos actually starts, and then to see what the composition of the second class is (Promo, OC, and retro minority hires from the old lists) before you start planning… I think there is a good chance that even the second class (assuming it is around June 2013) is drawn evenly from the different pools and they only process the first several hundred from the OC list. Assuming all of that is close to accurate (which it might not be) it might be a few classes down the line before you get called. But with a list number like that, I think we'd all agree that you are in good shape to get a fat package in the mail before too long once the OC process starts moving.

    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?

    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.

    What interview? I had to meet w/ a Dept shrink the last time because I have an "offense" in my past, but there's really no interview with anybody. The most I spoke with my investigator was over the phone when she needed additional information on me.

    hahaha I had to meet with the doc too. She wanted to know why I wanted to become a firefighter when nobody in my family before me was on the job. Maybe she thought I was crazy. But aren't we all a little?

    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...

    Doubt the point scoring will be on there. With so many people having such low scores, it would be like an invitation for additional reviews and test complaints.

    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?

    Wish I could answer this question. According to an article in "The Chief,"

    "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?

    Yes, they are doing it right now for EMS people. When the time comes they will invite people down to sign up for that. If you are in the top 1000 on the OC you should begin training now, I think it's likely that they will draw from that group for at least some of the June/July class, and you can not wait until you get something in the mail to start training.

    There is no formal interview, you just go and meet with an investigator who collects the necessary paperwork and makes sure it's all in order. I did mine today. If you have all the necessary documents and an uncomplicated history then it's really pretty straightforward. Also they are definitely verifying age vs eligibility, so people who think they are going to get by unnoticed are in for some bad news.

    It's hard to say at this point. The city is fighting the charge that they intentionally discriminated, and I believe the 293 priority hires and the back pay and what not will all be in jeopardy if the Court of Appeals agrees with the city. HOWEVER... until that happens it seems to be a bit of an unknown. There's a guy that posts here that has access to court docs and seems to have a legal background, maybe they can shed light on this.
