Honestly, I would pay a lawyer to find out if it is truly sealed/expunged before not listing it on the background.

    The problem is when the NYC does a background check they will pull all arrests, even if they were dismissed/expunged/sealed. They will also use this against us. What was your Class c misdemeanor for? If it was drug, theft, violence related they will especially take that into account.

    Honestly, the biggest worry about the process is the background check. Unless your record is squeaky clean, you should be worried. I'll say that I'm worried, even though my record isn't that bad. But when I take my entire background into account, criminal, work history, etc., I will say that I'm worried.

    There is also a rumor that if you're white they are looking to disqualify you for any reason to try and get the minority numbers up.

    Another thing to mention is someone that I was in contact with was telling me he had to list all his arrests that were all dismissed. I searched his posts today and found out that they disqualified him for these arrests which were all dismissed. He was also asking about the appeals and hiring a lawyer.
    Disregard anything and everything this man just said . He has no clue what he is talking about. The rumor u heard is just that a rumor . It's false . Won't waste time adressing it.

    as far as the background goes , if u have multiple violations . Arrest etcc. Yes that will raise a flag , fdny is looking for a repeated pattern . If u slipped up once or twice for non related issues , then it would not hurt you as much as u may think , fdny is much more lineant than nypd is .

    Just be upfront about everything and don't allow them to find out on their own . It shows that your honest , honesty plays a key role.
    No need to go looking for lawyers .

    Remember innocent until proven guilty. If u were convicted of a crime hey that's a different story , but if the case was Dismissed then you have nothing to worry about. A court of law already valuedated your innocence.

    I heard a rumor yesterday that I wanted to throw on here for you animals to tear apart.

    While hanging out at my brothers firehouse yesterday, one of the others guys said that a candidate stopped by a few days before claiming to be headed to metrotech for processing. I say "claiming" because he also claimed to have a list number around 2900.

    Being at 36XX, I want to believe this, but the realist inside me think this is a load of BS.

    Any thoughts?

    Hey, so I finally got my packet again after differing a year ago which I don't recommend because it was a pain getting back on track but anyway, my intake interview is on Oct 2nd.
    My question is how exactly do I go about getting the detailed earning statement? I'm sure it's been talked about here at length but I can't seem to find it. Any insight is appreciated.

    Hopefully we start getting our intake packets this week. But no one knows for sure.

    Are intake interviews a single person thing or is it like a group thing?

    a whole large group is called for intake. then you hand in paper work one at a time and after small groups of people that have handed in paperwork are taken up stairs and fingerprinted. but its not an individual interview along the lines of 'tell me your strengths and weaknesses'

    They want five years back. Just to be clear though, do I need the one that you have to pay for?
    I've looked online and all I found was a form that they want you to mail to Baltimore with like $102 or $132 or something. This is the only thing I don't have ready to go, I want to turn in as much as possible right off the bat.
