    Now with all seriousness almostthere. Where you given your list number in the PH list or your score? Was the PH list made public to you. I am not asking for the link but for only a simple answer. Thank you.
    no, I was not given my list number. I am not even sure how the PH's even know their score. With the packet I received, it just states group 1.

    Im only judging by your own confession. If you have a more honorable reason for joining the ranks, then say so. I dont dislike you for PH situation. All you did was take the test, not get hired and moved on. Not like it was you who made a fuss and caused a lawsuit; it was people already otj that did that. I cant fault you for answering a phone call that you werent even expecting. That would be stupid. And i cannot fault you for simply taking advantage of a second opportunity which was practically shoved down ur throat. That would be stupid as well. But i can attack your motives because they are dishonorable and insulting, in light of the PH situation.

    Because Whymetoo stated "Have you seen the score of the ph. Out of 729 people that took the test 369 score 95 or above. Some 120 with score of 102 and better"

    How would he know this if you claim that the PH list hasn't been made public to you? I think Whymetoo is a troll because he first states that he has a friend that is a PH but then says he is a PH. The PH forum he speaks of is impossible to google and you being a PH don't even know of such forum.

    Someone is lieing here.

    That’s the differences between you and me; I can dislike a job and still perform 110% at it.

    His information could be legit, I am not sure. The problem you may have is thinking that all of the PH are communicating with each other and exchanging notes, etc.

    I would think that if one PH knows his list number and score because he claims to have seen the list then all PHs would know their list number and score as well.

    Sounds reasonable. Maybe I am just communicating with the wrong people and in the wrong forum. Lol

    You must have not attended your CPAT training orientation, or you just simply weren't listening. I'm honestly not sure if your response is sarcastic or not. Sadly, that's the impression you've brought upon yourself on this thread. I pray you learn to leave this all behind IF you make it into the academy.

    If your response wasn't sarcastic then I can simply say that (and I'm not speaking from personal experience but only from the experience of being a son to a NYC Firefigher) the FDNY is the greatest job in the world because the friendships you make from it are infinite. The flexibility of the job allows you to do whatever you like on the side. And you get to SAVE PEOPLE'S LIVES. (notice the money aspect, though being a fine perk, was not mentioned)



    I'm of the opinion that almostthere is trollin all of us. Pretty hard.

    If this is the case, A job well done on his part. hahaha

    No, I haven’t gone to the orientation. You can receive the same perks being a teacher, besides the flexibility. Well they do have three months off and still get paid for it.

    Well you missed out on some valuable information and I'm sorry that you didn't go.

    Firefighters also get paid vacation. 6-8 weeks, per year. (Don't quote me on that. But it's along those lines and corresponds with seniority)

    Teaching is a good profession and I'm not bashing it at all. I just know I could never do it. But you sound like a perfect candidate. Have you looked into being a teacher? You should totally do that instead.

    I know I am way to ahead of myself. But how does their work schedule work? Days and hours? Is it fixed for a certain amount of time or is it different every week?

    So why don't you be a teacher and give the gentlemen who's spot you are taking back.

    Haha. I think we're all a bit ahead of ourselves minus the few guys on here actually on the job. I'm sure FDsouthbxNY, teufelhunden36 and whoever else I missed OTJ could answer that a lot better than I can. Like I said, my only experience is having my father on the job. From what I understand, and please correct me if I'm wrong, every year you will be handed a specific FDNY calendar (specific to your firehouse). On that calendar you will be assigned a number. Whenever your number appears on the calendar, you have work. There are two rows of numbers. The top row represents the day tour (9am-6pm) and the bottom row represents the night tour (6pm-9am). An example looks like this:

    http://nycfire.net/forums/index.php?...tach=606;image

    Again, I don't want to come off like I'm some expert. I've been lucky enough to have been exposed to it my whole live and this is what I've come to learn. I know for damn sure I know NOTHING in comparison to the guys actually OTJ. Those are the guys you wanna talk to.

    Hope that was informative or made sense, haha.



    Edit: To the guy ranting about his percentage body fat and abs earlier, I regret to inform you that this calendar is unfortunately different than the FDNY calendar of all the shirtless firefighters.

    Everybody love everybody....But then again I'm just a silly 21 year old boy who doesn't know a thing. I'm sure a fat, out of shape 40+ lady is more sure of herself that she wants to be a NYC FF than little ol' me. -_-

    Maybe someone else who was present at either of the CPAT orientation seesions today can add their observations, but it sure seemed like there was an awful lot of people not prepared...or in other words, not in shape. Some looked to be way out of shape.

    The instructors mentioned that 24 had dropped out from the current class and that approximately 20 more are on the edge.

    There was an enthusiastic and blunt Lieutenant there today as well. He mentioned the city advertising all these great benefits of the job (ie flexible schedule), but neglected to mention that it's a tough job and that you actually go to fires. And that you could die doing it.

    Looking at the calender, it's approximately 23 weeks until July 29th. It's going to be warm out there, for anyone who makes it into the class.

I couldn’t believe that a case was being presented based on a test, that people failed or didn’t score high enough on to get hired by the FDNY. I had no interest for the lawsuit until I heard about back pay money and a possibility of getting hired with the starting pay of 90k plus, etc.

    Furthermore, I had no issue with the hiring process. I didn’t get a call back after my intake interview and I kept it moving and pursued other options that were out there for me to tackle. Hint, I got a BA in Business Management and worked in different fields, such as Finance, Social Service, etc.

    I'm enjoying everyone's discussion about summer vs. winter, since it's purely academic. As if you'd defer just because you don't want to go to probie school in July or January. All you guys thinking summer is going to be better are going to be in for a good time though once training begins. I bet after one week of bunker gear you're going to be begging for colder weather.
