    Definitely Email him/her. You want to be there at an appropriate time but I would not think that they would want you there at the same time that they are showing up for work at 8am. When I went back the second time, my investigator scheduled 4 of us at 10am on the same day.

    At first I said I will mail everything standard mail and he made a big deal about the deadline. I guess they are trying to get everything together this time.

    It also can be just a deadline for the person reviewing my file and not for everyone.

    3. I have a misdemeanor on my record from 13 years ago, is there a timeline of offenses? I know most jobs say within the last 7 years or so. Plus I have 8 years of time in the Marines post offense. What have you all who went through the process seen?

    I did my annual medical at BHS this week for the EMS side... Frank said they are continuing more Medicals in May to fill the next class... So I doubt May 1st is the cutoff date. But you never know.

    It's possible because I was missing proof of being NY resident. It also could be with my investigator taking leave of absence.

    I would focus a lot on truck positions in each building type and their tool assignments. (I believe chap 16). Not only will this be on tests but it's also invaluable knowledge to have. Knowing exactly where you're going, what tools you're taking and what your job is without having to think about it will make you a step ahead of everyone else. I would also know for engine ops what companies stretch lines and where these lines are stretched to and their goals. (protecting exposures, protecting open stairs, etc)

    And basically just everything else too

    It's a bluff but don't not take it seriously. Get that stuff in asap. Your fate is in their hands. You want to make it as fool proof as possible. These people are extremely good at doing their job extremely poorly.

    I made sure I documented each time I called. Exact date and time. And I kept track of every email I ever sent. That way if they ever try and say "Oh he never got in contact with me", you have the proof that you did. They can't say much if you say I tried calling you on this, this and this date at these exact times. I'm sure all those calls are still in your call log. I know exactly what you're going through because I went through the same thing. Just stay persistent but stay polite. You're almost done dealing with them.

    Cause it's all over the place in the academy. You'll go through nearly the entire manual in the first 2 weeks. Do the study guide. It can't hurt.

    RE: earning statement
    filed for mine online/via snail mail. download the form and send it in. Im hoping, since it is far enough in advance, that i will get it before the intake date. I want as few documents missing as possible, but if not I'll wait it out and use the in person method as a backup. sometimes the SS office waiting rooms can be a nightmare

    I found it much simpler to go to a social security office and attain the papers. I went during the week, arrived probably 15 minutes early and waited on line till they opened (9/930). I was in and out in under 20 minutes, just make sure you have the money order/check for $102 and it should be a breeze. I went to the location in upper manhattan, 183rd Street and Broadway.

    Just go to the office. I hear that waiting for the Earning Statement by mail could take something 4-6 months. Take the hour of waiting at the office and at least you'll have it in your hand. I went to the Staten Island office on Richmond avenue. They open at 9, I was there at 8:30 and I was walking out of the place with the paper work in my hand at 9:30. Then at least I could check that off, I had it and I didn't have to wonder when/if I would get the paper work in time in the mail.

    I was going to drop a great idea but the last two guys here already did it! Hahaha. Go to the social services bldg locally to you and get a list of all the jobs you have worked since you were 18. I think it was $15 for every 5 or 10 years when I did it. Now you have a complete list, and dates, of where and when you worked. Not really a big deal for the early 20's guy, but I did it when I was 32. There were a lot of jobs I didn't even remember I had! I called up a few to ask if they even remembered me, and apparently most companies purge their records after 8 years. So many didn't know who I was... but the govt does. So it doesn't matter if they remember you or not (you're not asking for a reference anyway), you will have a complete list of where you worked.

    Good luck guys. Dealing with the investigators is a major headache.

    Oh yeah, have they given the psychological test yet? If not then I have a few tips for that.

    I definitely have to agree with everyone else, as far as going to the SS office. I was dreading the wait I was going to have to endure at the downtown Brooklyn office. But it turned out I was outta there in about 45 minutes. What I wasnt expecting was the sting of having to cough up 102 dollars, for a "document" that looked no better than the paper I use to wipe my butt with.

    Unfortunately it's a flat fee of like $102. It was implemented in the beginning of this year. I remember the days when it was only $5 per year. It's all about fleecing the citizens nowadays. Very sad.
