    I did not test. I am the original poster who started this thread, in hopes of assisting all of the potential candidates to communicate with one another about various issues and to demand fairness from the City (yeah, right.....)

    Then shut up no one wants to hear what you have to say, especially since you did even take the test. Go back to wishing you were a career firefighter.

    Hey Junior....I was getting a paycheck to fight fires when your mommy was still wiping your nose for you. I started this thread to assist potential candidates for Philly to communicate with one another about issues regarding the test and list. I have been there and done that. I have several polictical connections in both Philadelphia Government as well as connections in the PFD. One or two guys on here know me personally.

    Query: Do YOU know what the Consent Decree is? Do you know if it is stil in effect? Do you know why it may or may not be affecting the hiring status of so many guys currently on the list? If you knew the answer to the question, you wouldnt be telling me to shut up. Now go back to doing your algebra homework or touching yourself watching the cheerleaders practice or whatever it is that you do.

    FYI..He was a career firefighter for many years..AND he has fought his fair share of fires. He got burnt by the same system that is currently burning a a lot of people. so just because he didn't take the test doesn't mean that he doesn't have pertinent information/advice for us. Just saying.

    Actually I prefer the term "Career Firefighter" versus "Professional Firefighter." I know many career guys that are no where near professional, and I know many Vollies that are extremely professional. The term "Career Firefighter" is in no way derogatory or demeaning; it's a technically correct term.

    C'mon guys....the negativity needs to stop. I'm a non-vet and these guys are getting hired. It is what it is! I deal with it everyday in the federal government. I'm not going to give two ****s when I'm working if the guy next to me is a vet or non-vet, we need to have each others back regardless of race, sex, and or military status. If you are in the top 300 you have an excellent chance of getting on. I'm sitting in the single digit 200's and didn't get a letter yet and have completed the process. It's gonna come one day, may not be in September but hey most on here have gotten further than the 12000 that applied. It's a drop in tub compared to some

    FWD I appreciate what you did Thanks! But honestly fellas lets not have a ****ing contest on here. This is extremely nerve racking for anyone awaiting a letter and we really don't need to see this. I'm hoping my husband makes this class but I can't find out if anyone around his rank got their letter due to the bashing posts. And I thought us women were caddy! Sorry and Thanks

    ......and people who are ranked well beyond you are going to get hired before you, hence why a class-action lawsuit should have been filed against Philly to stop the insanity and to force a colorblind hiring system.

    Good Luck to you guys who got letters today.

    Well Mr. Goosh once again you are at it. I'm sorry I didn't know we had a English major on here - but my bad- I will definitely check my grammar from now on. What the hell ever - you ****ed me off and I wrote what I wrote without checkig spelling or grammar -
    So what- I'm a highly educated individual and your ignorance is just that. So Here is one for you- several schools are looking for English teachers-please apply-you have such a great knack for grammatical errors on a forum where people are trying to get a job and don't give a #%^k About misspelling words. Get a life and suck it the hell up and Drive on.

    How will HR notify those who's numbers they didn't reach or the alternates? Has anyone on here received notification of alternate status?

    Bro, don't be surprised if you get a letter tomorrow or Saturday telling you to report Monday morning..I'd grab a pair of blue work pants and a blue work/uniform type shirt and some cheapy black boots just in case...don't want to be running around like a headless chicken. Be prepared. If not, just keep them for the spring class.

    I really hope that myself, and whoever else doesn't get their number picked is FIRST in the chute come spring time...

    Gonna get me some P90x..gonna look like I just left a WWII prison camp come next go around..

    I'll let you know...till then..good luck.

    Your "notification" will be in the form of not receiving a letter. Once the list expires, you will get a letter saying that your rank was not reached. There is no such thing as an "alternate" in the way you guys are thinking of it. It simply means that you are one of the next few in line. If there is another class, you will be the first ones in that class.
