    Default OC Intake Interview

    In reference to the Medical before the CPAT, I'm OC and was told to expect a letter invite to med/psych in a couple weeks. Saying that, maybe medical is going before CPAT for some, or all.

    During the medical exam you will be placed on a stairmaster for 3 minutes as a warmup at a rate of 60 steps per minute. You are given a very short break and then placed back on at same rate with a weighted vest. I think it was around 40 lbs. You will do this for 5 minutes and 12 seconds. Your pulse is taken and based on age you must be within their guidelines

    I was actually with my investigator yesterday and this morning and when I asked about the medical she kept saying it is coming in the mail. I will call her this evening and give her more details about me. Thanks

    No wonder you failed the test twice; you can't read. It's a 3 minute WARMUP; the actual test is 5 minutes 12 seconds. You have to read the WHOLE thing first before answering. This is where the reading comprehension part that the vulcans say you don't need comes into play.

    LOL at failed the test twice. I only took it once in 02 passed and took it 2013 and guess what, I passed. Maybe we should go out on a date, because you love replying to me. They say, if someone is constantly harassing you, more than likely that person has a crush on you.

    F,A,C,R Train to Jay Street - Borough Hall , or you can take a handful of trains including LIRR to Atlantic Ave - Barlcay Center. My gym is right down the block, so I pass by the building almost everyday, but my interview isn't for another 3 weeks Lol nerve-wrecking

    I had intended to go right back to ignoring you but I have to now wave the bullsh*t flag. First off, when we say "passed" we mean that you received a score in hiring range; the guy at the bottom of the list technically passed, but he has no hope of being hired before the list runs out and has "failed" to get on the job. So, when we apply the word "failed", in your case, it means you didn't get a score in hiring range and thus have not earned the job you are now being handed. I realize you aren't too bright, but surely you can grasp this very simple idea.

    Now, onto that bullsh*t flag. You stated on more than one occasion you took two tests; one you were contacted for but never hired and another you never got a grade on. Now you say you only took it in 02 and this half baked one they cooked up to get you guys on the job. Which is it?

    We are not in second grade; there's no crush. A weak, pathetic attempt at a comeback like that will get you roasted in the firehouse, and you're going to have problems going in, so I 'd work on that.

    And this isn't a reply; it's me simply taking every opportunity that comes to mock you and the pathetic route you're taking for what you're doing to the job. Guys on here don't seem to like it, but I don't really care. Expect me to slam you every time you creep up on here.

    Hi! I'm new to this Forum. I'm sure its been asked and answered before but can anyone tell me when candidates from the open competetive exam will begin admittance into the academy, or when to expect further information by mail, weather it be my packet or some other info. I keep getting conflicting information about the scheduling of the next few classes. I'm a Marine Veteran with a test score of #101. My list number is 219X

    Thanx,
    Jack

    The short answer is he didn't meet the standard, got a second chance from an activist judge (who is hopefully soon to be overruled) based on his skin color, and now thinks he has every bit a right to this job as the guys who got good scores who will now have to wait to get on. And isn't afraid to let them know that. That's why.

    I don't think most of us really hate any of the PHs. Most of us understand that this is a dream situation you guys have been handed and would in fact be crazy to pass it up. The agitation comes from the fact that up to 293 people are skipping the line and getting second or third chances just based on skin color. As it is about 8000 of the top scoring people from this test WILL have their dreams held up for at least 6 months to ameliorate an in justice that never actually occurred.

    This of course is in addition to the THOUSANDS of candidates who's lives have been in total limbo for over 5 years and counting because of all this lawsuit BS. Trust me, I don't hate any of you, this is just the last place in the world you should come on and state things like I'm a PH get over it. In fact I don't know why you'd ever want ANYONE to know you are a PH, I cant imagine it will make your career easier.

    Believe me, I think we'd all rather Garaufis came onto the forum so we could just vent directly to him haha.

    I was asking almostthere...but ok!!! You really need to get over this anger that you have against him. Bashing him every time he say something is so childish...
