Passed up on a hiring list b/c my PST score was expired - how?
I'm ranked #7 on a City who's Civil Service Commission certified its list last June. They had hired through 6 as of November, I've been waiting to be hired, knowing the list is up in June. I found out they're hiring one more next week. I know because a guy I know who is ranked lower is going to a Chief's. His letter states 3 guys are going for this one job.
I'm pumped on my way home to get my letter. No letter. I call HR. She tells me my Public Safety score expired in September. I say that's impossible, I take the test twice a year. Well they pulled my perfect 100% score from 5/11 and so the score is good for 15 months, or until September 2012.
I ask why they certify the list in June '12 then, and it says it's good for one year. She's even told me that in three seperate conversations that I would be next if somebody retires or a recruit fails out. Now this.
Anybody have any advice on this. It's crazy. I take Public Safety twice a year, and I have no control over when they pull scores. I can't take the test more than twice a year, unless of course I'd have failed. Then you can take it every three months.
