I also went through the process for State court officer, they never brought up my nypd DQ, and they cleared me for the job and put me on the certification list for the next academy, unfortuneately who knows when they will ever hire.
thats pretty interesting - i know guys currently on fd who were dqed by pd and it was not brought up.. did DOC have you bring in a disposition form regarding your DQ from pd?
The first class went on January 14th, how soon after that did they send out the processing packets to next group of candidates. Waiting for August, the anticipation is killing me lol.
So if they go by that same sort of agenda figure maybe the end of August? Of course none of this is even slightly definite. Purely speculation.
Long story short, I applied for NYPD Cadet when I was 19.. a few months before applying to this, I was involved in a situation in which I was attacked by a crazy person after work (I worked in a bad neighborhood at the time). It was a pretty scary experience, and I was alil shook up for a couple of months over it, never went to counseling or anything for it though, but it was a factor and I failed my psych test for Cadet.
4 years later, when going through the process for NYPD, while I was already working 2 different security jobs, and a college graduate, the nypd psych put me on review because I was psych DQ'ed from Cadet as a teen. They put me on review and left me there. Then 6 months later, DOC called me, I went through their process, and never disclosed that I was DQ'ed by nypd, because I wasn't DQ'ed, I was on review.. At my psych interview for DOC, The psych told me he was notified by NYPD that I was psych DQ'ed, and he asked me why I didn't disclose this to DOC. I explained that as far as I knew I was on review, and wasn't notified of being DQ'ed. I had all the credentials to be hired by DOC.
After this interview, I called my NYPD investigator, and she told me I was still on review, and wasn't DQ'ed. I then asked her for a withdrawal form, and told her I want to just with draw so I don't have this hurt me for any time I apply for a job in the future. She told me i'd receive the form to with draw from NYPD in a few weeks... a few weeks later, I never received the with drawal form, but instead I received a letter stating that I was psych DQ'ed because NYPD didn't feel I matched the personality for the job. the letter also stated that this DQ was specific to NYPD and doesn't demonstrate any reasons for me to be DQ'ed from other city employment.
but to answer your question, no DOC just asked me about it, and then that was it.. didn't need any paper work, they asked me about it and then moved on and hired me.. In DOC im making more money than I would of in NYPD so that's a plus.
I hope FDNY has some over time.. My job sucks and I want to jump to fdny, but I like that we have a good supply of overtime, so when you hit those months where there's extra expenses for the month, you can do overtime to get through it without feeling the extra burden on your budget.
There will be very little overtime....if any.
Mutuals: A nice scheduling option that will be given to you at some point, but no walk in the park as a probie. Also I wouldn't expect to even think about a 2nd job until after probation, which is 18 months so....
What day does the July academy class officially start?
Orientation was yesterday, July 29th is the official start.
Some more tips for the new guys:
Any kind of black duffel bag will do. I got something pretty cheap and middle of the road from Modells. You want something reasonably sturdy, but not too big. You will carry that thing every where, all the time, and sometimes have to carry it in pretty uncomfortable ways. You have to manage how much junk you have in there beyond the bare minimum, cause otherwise it gets pretty heavy.
Good ideas: a few garbage bags in case it rains (put your binders and any other loose stuff inside the garbage bags, then inside duffel bag, keeps them from getting ruined),
anybody who is as pale as I am is going to want a lot of sunscreen for PT for the next few months,
a big bottle of ibuprofen,
lots of snacks,
I'm sure there's other things I'm forgetting, but you'll figure it out along the way.
Ahh sunblock. I can only imagine the sunburns esp with the shaved heads.
Got the scoop that mostly all the PHs are in this class going in, only a handfull at best for January are left. Anyone list # 100-1000 train NOW like if you going to the academy because.... You probably will....
Up to 1000?? Holy Crap! I called my investigator and she won't even talk to me yet about processing.
