This isn't the first time there were priority hires. The vulcans and women's groups have been making certain sexes and races a "priority" for a long time. There was a court mandate a long time ago for x numbers of "blacks" for X numbers of"whites". Forgot the years and the actual ratio. And another time the list was help up for years if I remember correctly because the physical was found to be sexist. Keep in mind thou that all the while "minorities" we're making it through on merit.
Because they failed the written 10 years ago. ^^^ I find it pretty amazing that you don't realize that.
And, just for the record, the individual I was talking about is DEFINITELY in one of the groups of people the EEO office and City Hall like to crow about putting on the job in greater numbers, and was still given the job after they fired other people who may or may not have been of the same ethnicity or gender who could not perform the tasks this individual failed to perform. I'll leave it at that.
The first class was all ems promos. That list is not open competitive.
Maybe some of these people who are so pro PH can give up their spots so that more PH's can be hired.
How long are you guys resting periods between workouts? I usually take off weekends but for the pass month I pretty much been working out everyday. While doing this I injured both shoulders and right knee. To make it even worse, I got five stitches in my right palm last week. I decided to take two weeks off, which helped a lot for my shoulders and knee but I feel tried, lazy, and just not motivated to workout. Anyway, today would be my first day back into my workout routine but I am dreading the sore body, and the feeling of starting over again to regain my strength, stamina, and endurance.
Does anyone here run any road races to see where their times are at? If so what are you current best times?
So when do we find out the ratio's for this next class and how long its gonna take to get down the list. I am feeling extra depressed today and need some healthy speculation.
Just a discussion piece.
I saw this on my Facebook as I was ready to go into NYC this week and try to visit a FH lol.
I figured the FDNY groupie would have gone the way of the dinosaur much like support for troops, and the ammt of American flags and patriotism
As more time past since the tragedy.
How do you guys on the job view this?
It have been going on before this whole lawsuit even happen. But some of the guys up here will make you believe that they are only pushing blacks and females which is so not true.
On a better note just wanted to know if you receive your email about the list. It's the PH list. It was to come out on June 5 but investigator said it was push back until the 17th she was not 100% sure of the date but that the date she have for now. she inform me that all my paper work was process and she didn't need anything else from me. She also inform me that I will receive a letter in the mail for the 1.5 run and that Ph have priority over promotion and oc list. I told her i thought it was Pro,Ph,OC and she said NO Ph have priority. She said the July class will be made up of mostly PH and pro. So taking from what I was told a lot of PH did in deed pass.
Ps. I will take getting a low mark on a test over getting push threw the academy. The test you take for the fire department don't have much to do with the job. The academy do...
And it's does not, or doesn't..
And it's does..not do.
Call me silly but I'd rather have someone pushed THROUGH the academy.. Who can write and speak English properly.. Maybe you should consider spell check, or maybe taking some English classes.
Ps. Just a FYI all Ph will be getting paid top pay the start of the academy not After the academy. That's somthing else you guys can hate on.
Ohhhhhhh....he said yo momma whymetoo. Get ready for that and 10x worse when the guys at the house
Find out you got an easy ride in. The academy's gonna be nothing compared to the *** whooping the PH's are gonna receive afterwards. And make no mistake, they'll know who you are.
Yes, I received the email. My investigator actually wanted me to forward her the email so that she can conduct her own research why the list didn't come out on June 5th. Great to hear that your paperwork is completed and a lot of PH are on their way to the academy. I can sense that this class is going to be crazy!! Anyway, stay fit physically and mentally and in due time, we will be firefighters!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for the update, ONE!!
