What happens there after in terms of failing academy is almost the same as those candidates getting hired and then getting fired.

    But that's just my opinion I don't know how this part works.
    293 had to be hired. They are not guaranteed to keep the job. The judge ruled that they have to meet all requirements such as passing academy. The ones who resigned will recycle. If they resign again the word is that they're done. I'm sure the job will bend over backwards to help them, but they do have to pass.

    Hey Gents,
    I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on a question I had.

    I was originally scheduled to take my psych test in the middle of Nov 2013, but I had to reschedule due to an emergency. I've been calling CID every week to see about a new test date, but each time I call, they say they have no tests being scheduled currently. I was wondering if anyone else is waiting on their test date.

    Test 2000
    List : 10xx
    Score: 102
    Cpat Passed 11/7

    Thank you in advance!

    *FF RUN ALERT*

    The Firefighter Run originally scheduled for January 7, 2014, has been re-scheduled for January 9, 2014, due to the forecasted sub-zero freezing weather conditions.

    Candidates scheduled for the January 7, 2014 run, should report to the Fire Academy on January 9, 2014 at 0700 hours.

    All information contained in your original Run scheduling letter remains the same. Contact CID at (718) 999-2169/2179 should you have any questions.

    Hey guys i've got a question. After entering the academy, how long will it be before we get our first paycheck? Also, about how much do we take home every 2 weeks after taxes?

    I think that the ice may be an issue, but maybe it is because the weather is calling for it to feel like -7 out when the run is supposed to happen. I'm guessing that they are just playing it safe.

    I think everyone has to call CID again to confirm their attendance for the 9th now. I called in just to double check the rescheduling and she said "ok. You are confirmed or the 9th".

    I hear ya, I just wanted that offer of employment letter in my hand already. The weather Thursday will help those that were truly on the brink of the 13min I think.

    Probably 2-4 weeks depends how long they take to put you in the payroll system. Pay is BI-weekly so at a minimum 2 weeks.

    Depends on your taxes what you take home. Single non-home owner like me I got about $950 with no overtime. You will earn a couple hours a week of OT being the academy is a 9 hour day.

    Gross pay before taxes for a 6th grade is about $1550 biweekly

    how often do you earn OT when in academy? is it a built in thing every week?

    How is OT going for you now that your on the job?

    A standard training day (referred to as a cycle day) is 9 hours long. In the academy you are on a 40 hour a week schedule, so that extra hour a day is OT.

    OT in the field varies from battalion to battalion. I think most battalions have a healthy amount right now, however it's hard to say what the situation will be like if/when you get on and are actually able to do it.

    My friend said his run tomorrow is postponed due to weather. I figured they wouldn't care about temperature.

    I'm sure they just didn't want anyone whining it was unfair.
