    I hope that at top pay your really taking home more than $2500 every 2 weeks. In D.O.C at top pay, with alittle OT that's always available, C.O's easily take home $3k.. and I think the PH's are taking 2500 gross pay every 2 weeks before taxes.
    Stop constantly bringing up DOC.

    Finances: ~1100 take home in the academy was fairly accurate, because you get 9-10 hours of OT every check (standard training days earn you 1 hour of OT per day). Out of the academy a few different differentials kick in, but your take home will actually probably go down at first because you'll stop getting 9-10 hours OT every check. Your battalion may not want to use you for OT right away, and there may not be much going around anyways. On the flip side I had 48 hours of OT in my last check... and didn't break 1700.

    The money gets better in the long run, but it sucks to start with and will never be great considering the cost of living here.

If you put 10% of your pay into tax differed plans (split between voluntary additional pension contributions and a 457 plan), what you'll take home in the average paycheck ain't gonna break $2,000. A few times a year you'll get Holiday Pay and uniform allowance, but that's it.

    Between taxes, pension costs, union dues and tax differed savings we net about 50% of our gross paycheck.

    This job pays s.h.i.t., but we love it anyway and that's the most important part........I just wish that dedication was currency for mortgage payments.....
    YOU HEARD GUYS !!!! {[( for those that want to become firemen because or care more for pay, pension, driving the red truck, and many other silly reasons )]} this job pays S.H.I.T ... Forget being a FF go to pd doc (no offense John) and let this list speed up. Thanks

    OK, we'll go slow. On the Notice of Examination, you will find certain education/work requirements that you must meet to be hired. You must have either met the the education requirement, worked for a certain amount of time or served in the military for a certain period of time. The FDNY will not hire you unless you have met those requirements. So, yes, the FDNY can tell you that they won't hire you without prior work experience unless you meet the education requirement or served in the military.

    And it's not "discrimination" when someone doesn't give you something you want when you don't meet the requirements; it's called the real world. How about getting a job and hanging onto it? Then, since it's an absurdly short period of time that you have to have the job to meet the work requirement, you won't have to worry about it at all.

    I need to add one more fact about pay; All new city hires (the ones who got here on their own merit) are being hired under Tier 6 and this includes those who were hired by EMS after Tier 6 was adopted. You are all taking home more money than prior city hires do. You're not making more, you're simply taking home more and the reason for this is your inability to add additional pre and post-tax funds. In other words, you are not able to invest voluntarily in the pension system, you only contribute what is contractually agreed upon.

    This means there will be significantly less money for you in retirement and you need to plan for that now. While everyone wants more cash in their pocket now, no one wants to eat cat food when they retire. Your solution is to place more money in either a tax deffered 457 account (similar to a 401k) or a Roth IRA, ect.

    I'm not sure how much guidance probies will get on this matter, but you should be getting more than you probably will. With some luck a good senior man or union delegate in your firehouse will be able to steer you well, but keep in mind that you MUST plan for retirement. Take less home now....you'll be happy you did.

    Someone from the pension unit came at the beginning and end of my academy to explain things, though I think that was in large part because everyone in the room was EMS and thus there were lots and lots of questions about transferring our time over and what tiers we'd be in, blah blah blah. I'm willing to bet he will be showing up to future academies anyways to explain the specifics of the pension plan. The guy was good, but it was of course only 1 day and a lot of information all at once.

    I don't. I did it when I got on EMS so it's been quite a while since then. Someone going through the process now should know.

    Chill bro.. I'm at 43xx.. We got this. You can't judge the numbers from this class or January's class be of the PH, and EMS guys.. Next July will give a much more accurate ratio..I'd say anyone under 7000 is fine.

    Waiting an extra year might suck, as long as I get in a class, doesn't matter if its the last class I'm fine. 2-3 years to wait for 25+ years of living the dream? I'll take it.

    Hold on here. DOCs top pay is the same as ours and so are your benefits, holidays and differentials. With deductions, there's absolutely no way you're taking home 3 grand a check. It's not possible. Are you talking about gross pay?

    Damn right. If I had to pick a team, it'd be the Mets because the Yankees are a bunch of prissy f****. But I find baseball about as useful as **** on a bull. Watching baseball is like sitting on a cement chair watching paint dry while listening to that stupid "stronger than the storm" song over and over again.
