    A promo is a promo. It doesn't factor into hiring as per the court. AFTER EMS fills some of the class, they will hire the 3 quota hires and 2 OC candidates.....unless the courts make changes...

    In that case, I stand corrected. The language from the court order didn't specify that distinction, I thought. Much better, obviously, for many of us who have a shot at the July class...

    “On the open exam for the general public, only candidates who score a 97 are likely to be called,” said the source. “But because so many of this class flunked their StairMaster, [scores] went as low as 72.”


    What opinions you fellas have on this ??

I still find time to work out 5-6 times a week. I'm not saying that its easy but it all depends how bad you want the job.

    I would rather put in the time and effort to be as prepared as I can be so that if the opportunity arises I will be as prepared as humanly possible.

    The sacrifices you make now will pay of in the long run. What's the worst that could happen, you don't get called and your in the best shape of your life.

    I also understand that everyone's situation is different but everyone should have 15-20 minutes a day to workout a lil. Even if its just running through your neighborhood.

    I'm sorry if I offended anyone, not my intention. I just get frustrated listening to people in general say they don't have time to exercise. Stop watching TV and go for a walk or run.
    I couldn't agree with you more !!!! I share the same thoughts

    Yeah I agree, I think we all should be fine, they are even looking into hiring convicted felons for heavens sake. Also as long as you haven't been in trouble and have showed progress in your respective fields, are in top physical shape and have a positive attitude, it'll be all good

    A question about the social security earnings statement.

    1) I know our current packet doesn't ask for it right away, but will we need it eventually?

    2) Does CID want the social security earnings statement or the detailed social security statement? I ask because the social security administration website indicates it could take up to four months to get the detailed one.

    Please do share your opinions about something that is a reflection of civil service laws, and old news. This is the trick guys. All you gotta do is pass the written when you're a promotional. The physical standards are all the same though, and I think it's quite obvious that those are a challenge for many.

I would personally be upfront about everything, and if it is all behind you which it sounds like it is than I would expect you will be good to go.

    You will need it, and you need the detailed one, the one that cost money.

    You think the oc list would go that far down?

    No, of course not, but that's besides the point. This has always been the way promotional lists work, and not just with this specific scenario. This is codified by city and state civil service laws.

    Is it fair? That's debatable.

    Whats the 1 in 3 rule in civil service? And can it effect any of us on the open competitive exam?

    If we can base the rate of hire of current EMS promos to the ones that are left I think with about 150 to go they would get somewhere around 50 that can make it to the academy. I don't have a lot of faith in the PHs and from what I hear there's no reason to. Given the small chance of them successfully completing the process I'd say its safe to say they will HAVE to pick from the OC list.

    dont forget all the guys who dropped before the midterm so they could recycle in to the next class and take up another spot in the academy. Who knows how many of these....people, there are. 10? 20?

    You're right even still there's no way they are getting 320 just from EMS and PHs

    I agree. The only person I've heard give their opinion & actually has insight into this is the Lt. who is in charge of the training. He told us he felt the top 500 on OC have a shot for July. Of course it could end up some where in the 400-600 range but I'd be surprised if someone in his position ended up way off on the # of OC they go through.

    I think others have said it's not possible, that 320 is the max the Rock could handle.

    Yeah everything I've heard to date said 320 is the max occupancy the facility can handle. So since PHs are now doing medicals, it's safe to assume they've completed the physicals for these chaps?
