So I am currently in the process of hiring with the NYPD as well as FDNY. It appears that I have passed the psych part of the process for the FDNY (I took the test on april 20 and haven't heard anything since), but I have a question. I am about to take the pysch evaluation with the NYPD and am wondering; If I got dq'ed from the psych part of the NYPD process, would that mean I would get DQ'ed from the FDNY as well?
I have no reason to fail the NYPD psych evaluation, its just that I have heard that they are very strict with NYPD psych. evaluation, and fail many people.
And since it appears that I have already passed the FDNY psych, maybe I should just put the NYPD process on hold? Can I put the NYPD hiring process on hold?
P.S. I would much rather be in the FDNY lol.
What exam number are you, I am curious what exam they are up to? I am 3308 or 3309 if I remember correctly.
You have way too much faith in the power of city government. There's no way in the world either agency would know/care that you are in the hiring process for the other.
I mean I do not remember listing any other civil service tests that I took during the FDNY hiring process. Did anybody else list any other civil service tests they took while they were undergoing the FDNY hiring process?
If FDNY isn't going to auto DQ you for a DQ in the NYPD process, then I do not see why I shouldn't take the psych evaluation this week.
But if the FDNY is going to auto DQ people for an NYPD DQ, then I will just put the NYPD process on hold for now.
Nothing is more important than getting into the FDNY.
So just to nutshell everything for anyone who's a little lost here's a summery of what information we've concluded in the last few weeks (correct me if I'm wrong):
I believe anyone who scored a 103 or higher on the exam (List numbers 1-733) have received their investigation packets and CPAT dates. (The first step in the hiring process)
There seems to be no pattern as to which comes first (Medical or Psych) but candidates under list number 300 have been hearing about both. (The second step in the hiring process)
The next class is scheduled to go in on July 29th, yet speculations say that the class may be held back until August (for the reason that they need more guys to fill the class)
The Priority hires will be hired at a 3:2 ratio along with the open competitive list (Exam 2000). So for every 3 Priority hires hired, 2 candidates off of the OC will be hired.
It's speculated that investigation packets for the next wave of candidates will go out by the end of the summer. (For the January class)
OC - Open competitive. Refers to the list of candidates who took the test.
PH - Priority Hires. Refers to candidates of the lawsuit who were given a second chance at taking the exam due to to lack of diversity on the FDNY.
OTJ - Stands for "On the Job", Referring to someone already employed by the FDNY
CPAT - The physical examination of the hiring process implemented in 2007 run by DCAS, NOT BY THE FDNY
Exam 2000 - The open competitive test held in the spring of 2012
Exam 2500 - The promotional exam held in the spring of 2012 for EMT's and Paramedics already hired by the FDNY
For example: Have you ever used marijuana? If you answered yes in a previous application then you should answer yes in the FDNY application because if the city really wants to dig in they can find out the truth. This is just my analysis.
Honestly, and I'm not saying this to be mean, but, why ask that silly question when you already know the answer. What do you think you should do? Better yet what you think you should of done from the very start. Get your s hi t together my dude, next time be on point. Remember the job you have now is just a temp job so do what you gotta do for FDNY.
Btw .. I still go hard on myself for being an idiot on that test !!! I know I would've gotten a Better score on that test. Now I just have to wait and see how many ppl ahead of me really want this job!!!! Hang in there bro !!!
