    First of all how is this racist? I mean you can take it how you want it.. If you're implying that all minorities are on welfare and food stamps then you seriously missed my point..

    Apparently you didn't see the " I work hard to do what you get handed for nothing" or the " don't expect sympathy from people who have fought and struggled to get something when you didn't"

    I could care less if you are on food stamps, welfare, unemployment, WIC,SNAP, whatever..

    It would imply that maybe you are the racist since you took that from my post.. Either way.. I'm not racist..I've volunteered to go back overseas to fight along side my brothers.. The brothers I've bled with, cried with, laughed with..so don't call me a racist without knowing me. K. Thanks

If you got a problem with that why don't you do us all a favor and stop posting on this forum. Also, for the record the guarilla guy should stop posting too. If you got so much damn pride in the department you work in now why don't you do us all a favor and stay there. I could just see your career in the FDNY being a complete disaster accounting by your horrible attitude.
    Fellas and Ladies,

    We need to stop arguing and bickering with each other, that's exactly what some people want us to do. Those people are probably laughing at us as they read all these post. There has been numerous senseless fights that have done nothing but bring negativity to this forum. Sometimes it's best to keep your mouth shut and not interject if you disagree with something that was said. This isn't directed at anyone in particular so please don't start a fight with me, I just want peace.

    Like almostthere said lets keep this full of "informative information" lol.

    Me.
    The stigma that will follow most all of these individuals is beyond comparison.
    And the few that have made their presence known here, have made sure to let all of us know they have an IGM attitude and have such an air of entitlement, it is sickening.
    Again, they are willing to take blood money and shiite all over you and this job.
    Knowing this, if it were me, no, I would not take it.
    But then, I have a conscience.

    Because with the CPAT, you have to be completely out of shape, unable to follow directions, or actually trying to fail it.

    High 200's here. Bro I really hope the rumors are true, and that I will get my medical date soon and get into the summer class..

    I am training hard, knowing that the more training I do now, the easier the academy will be..

    I just passed the NYPD medical last thursday, so I wonder... How similar is the FDNY medical to the NYPD medical?

    NYPD medical wasnt that bad, the only real surprise was the social media check (I was like... wtf really? lol).
    FDNY exam 2000 score: 104

    I don't know how similar, but the medical steps are listed in this thread a few pages back. There is no Social media check, but that doesnt mean you can post naked drunk pictures. LOL

    What are you talking about? If you would like an answer to a question, how about structuring it so it can be understood. I think you're asking why some firemen were hired before others when their test scores were higher. The answer to that question is this: that hasn't happened, so there's no point to your question.

    I simply informed you that your station in life with regards to this job is rock bottom, and that you should act accordingly. I'm a Marine combat vet, decorated and wounded, almost 40 years old and when I got to my house I was pushing 24 year old kids with a year on out of the sink to get the dishes done before them. While they sat and drank coffee and joked around I was sweeping floors, shining poles and going over every single part of the rig. I woke up an hour before to make sure coffee was ready and came into work an hour and a half early to send a guy home who barely has to shave. Without a word of complaint. That's what you're walking into, so if a little ribbing on a message board bothers you, or you think you're owed something because you're a vet and don't have to play the game like everyone else, walk away now.

    Oh, and besides fighting a war, I have a few years in the firefloor. So if you think I should have to put up with crap from a frigging candidate who hasn't so much as caught a whiff of smoke on a message board you got a screw loose.

    Try this: Why WERE some FF delayed in being hired when it was proven THAT they SCORED higher THAN OTHERS that WERE hired before them? Proper English does wonders

    Once again, this hasn't happened. You get hired in the order that your list number comes up, based on your test score. That basically means a guy who gets 100 will be hired before a guy who gets a 90. Now, a guy with a high score may have a problem that would keep him from going into a class (broken ankle, military service etc), in which case someone with a lower score goes into a class first, but that guy is still hired first and will get back pay and seniority that goes back to when he was called once he can go into a class.

    Is this a PH question? Because those guys DID NOT score higher than the guys who were hired over them.

    I feel like I'm being sucked into a vortex. What do you want to know? The lawsuit is a crock of ****, so NONE of them should get ANYTHING. They lucked out and got the right judge and a liberal mayor and council who has to keep the minority vote. That's all there is to it. In this case, the guys who are being given the job ARE getting back pay and seniority, so either way your question is moot.

    Once again, what are you talking about? What 135? If you're talking about PHs, they were delayed in being hired because THEY DIDN'T SCORE HIGH ENOUGH TO GET HIRED. It's not enough to pass; you have to do well. Is this really that hard to grasp?

    Ugh, listen, stop bothering me, willya? Why I'm even engaging in this with you I don't know but I'm done. Turns out there is such thing as a stupid question after all.

    MAYBE? I just told you three times I didn't get what you were asking. I don't know of any delayed hirings, and I don't know why the city would do that if it did happen. Now, excuse me while I go beat my head against a wall.

    I'm not sure but I'm gonna take a guess that these were ff who were hired but the court thinks they should have been hired earlier so they are getting paid for those years that the court thinks they misse because they were a minority. Again complete BS.

    Listen to me: any and all parts of this lawsuit are pure BS. NONE of the claimants were in any way, shape or form discriminated against. They tested, their scores weren't in hiring range, so they didn't get the job. NONE of them were "delayed"; they got hired in the order they placed on the list. It's that simple. DCAS calls you in the order you place; you CANNOT be called out of order. If your list number was one, how would anyone know to call two first?
