    no, don't get it. They may request a report with a date of print closer to the date of your meeting with your investigator. Wait until our asked so you do not waste your time.

    I am not sure that's true. You need an Honorable for it to qualify as work experience or for Veteran's Credit, and a Dishonorable disqualifies you. However, I have not found anywhere that you are DQ'ed for other discharges (Other Than Honorable, General, etc).

    Agree with you. If you claim veterans points you need a honorable. If you don't claim them then it shouldn't matter what you have. It would be like being DQd for being fired from any other job.

    Wait are you suggesting that one can be DQ'd for being fired from a job in the past? Or am I reading that incorrectly?

    I disagree. Get it. The disposition date on the charge is what is important, not necessarily the printout date of the document. Since you'll already be there, I'd get it - it's probably somewhere between free and five bucks. It doesn't hurt to have that stuff in your records, anyway. If your investigator wants a new one, deal with that then. At least you'll go to your interview prepared.

    Probably worded that wrong. I was trying to say that if you have a Dishonorable, bad conduct discharge or general under honorable then you should not be eligible for veterans credit but should still be eligible for appointment.

    I was trying to compare it to being fired from a job. If you were fired from a job that doesn't DQ you from appointment.

    My main point was that only honorably discharged veterans should be eligible for veterans credit. Sorry for any misunderstanding

    Well you do have to give in your reference numbers to your recent job history. So they will contact them and ask them questions about you, so I'm sure if you got fired for a bad reason it does play a bit of part in your investigation.

    To clarify - if you have received a Dishonorable discharge you are NOT eligible for appointment. Same as a felony conviction - just read the NOE. However, there are different classes of discharge, not just Honorable and Dishonorable.

    Oh wow. First off, congrats.
    Can you give us some more information on the test. Did they all fail the treadmill heart rate portion or was it some other aspect of the medical? Also where these guys out of shape or something?

    Quite honestly I don't remember since I was 19 when I was going through my investigation and I had only one prior job. But I'm sure that they will ask for 5 years the LEAST if not more.

    EDIT: sorry for the typos, writing from my cell is a battle with autospelling lol

    I have no experience with the FDNY process but in PD processes it depends on why you were fired. Why would any agency want to hire a guy whom they find out in a background investigation has been fired from 2 jobs for showing up late or calling in sick a lot? If you can't show up for those jobs what makes them think that "oh, once we hire him he'll change his ways and show up early everyday."

They also were not the ones who decided the city should have 293 priority hires, that was our friend the judge.

    While it'll be a pretty sweet package for the guys who get that, I feel bad for them in a way because they will have to prove themselves quite a bit more than regular candidates, due to the stigma.
    Feel bad for them? Come on guy......f$&k all of them. They'll be treated with a stigma because they're bags of ***** who couldn't see fit to prepare for an easy bull**** exam and then they cried about its fairness.
