    I understand that there are non-vets who received letters. My question is if EVERY vet who had a passing score was called for orientation. Are there any vets out there with a passing score who did not get a letter?

    Hey, just wanted to see what the majority of you guys were going to do with your booklet..mail it in or hand deliver? I was thinking about hand delivering..and about sending it certified mail with a receipt confirmation...just wondering.

    Haha Called HR today for some guidance with the yellow book, nothing major I'm just nervous about forgetting something ... Needless to say the lady didn't seem to enthusiastic about answering questions ... All I got was "Do the best you can."

    If you hand deliver, make sure they stamp it received in your presence and then get a picture of the stamp with your cell phone.

    Hey can someone put the number from the letter (I believe it is for the FD HR) I had it and miss placed it.
    They stated in the orientation that they accept 2 out of the three color blindness, does anyone know which one they do not. I am assuming total (black, gray and white) is this wrong?

    Does anyone have any thoughts/insight on deferment to a January class? Assuming you have a good list number and for any reason... family, current job, military, health, etc.

    You can defer for any reason or no reason. However, there is no guarantee that there will be another class before your list expires. HIGHLY unlikely that there will be a January class.

    Highly unlikely for a January class? Why do you say that? I got the impression from orientation that PFD would be having at least one in January, but maybe I'm wrong.

    For starters, the two classes they are hiring are scheduled to run into January. They will not start another class immediately. Also, as far as I know, they had only planned and have approval to hire two classes (160 cadets) this year (as in fiscal year).

    Heard recently that the city is now on the THIRD list. Can't they get things right?

    Also heard that all veterans, no matter where they are on the list, even with the 10 points, will be hired first before any non-veterans. Where is that in the Civil Service Regs?

    It seems to me that the City Dept. of Human Resources just thumbs their nose at rules and does what they wish (or are told to do).

    1. He shouldn't be sending anything, he should be driving / walking / SEPTAing
    2. He shouldn't be answering 'yes' to any drug questions. Why would he? Is there a polygraph? Is there a magic drug test that can see 7 years into your past? (Urinalysis = at MOST, 30 days)

    i don't know, maybe they do a hair sample drug test, but still...7 yrs? impossible to detect. maybe someone can expand on drug detection methods. Personally I don't want any drug users in the cab wit me. While we're on the topic, basically if I were in this process I'd stay far away from that sh**, even your friend/roomate is into it...move out and get new friends ASAP. Be a hermit for a month if you have to. All it takes is one incident.

    There will be a urinalysis as well as a hair sample. And for all you people who are going to say that you're bald...you're not completely hairless...they will find a hair sample.

    As for answering the drug questions... I don't see any problem with being honest while admitting that you tried weed or something. If you were a heroin addict, don't turn your book in.
