    He said he didn't have to tell me that info.. It's confidential . I figured it was based on percentage but I guess not.. He also said test scores are based on how other people test, so the more ppl that score high scores the harder it is to score high .. Makes no sense

    Wow! That's insane ! From my buddies that work at the city relay this Fella is on the hot seat because this is not the 1st time this gentlemen has screwed up a process, recently a Drivers exam was also royally screwed up. So basically they are curving it, not evaluating by scores = no legit reasoning for chosen candidates. Im Lost........ On the other hand I hear MDFR is starting to patch numbers for 2nd round guys.

    Goodmorning guys! I just spoke to Captain Plasencia from the city, he is involved in the choosing of candidates for the dept. He states that the city will only hire 2 classes from this list and that the city WILL do another list with a COMPLETELY new testing procedure next year, his words were "we are going to do another list due to the controversy n theyre a bunch ton of guys retiring This list will NOT be valid for 2 yrs". He stated the LPS system is completely outdated. He stated 265 were given to the fire dept and 105 were contacted for orientation. And for everyone person they lose one will be added to the list for a the next class.

    So are they going to call another 105 for the next class? Or the 105 they contacted now is for both?

    I think they call new candidates to fill the people they lose to getting hired and or background checks so the can refill the 105 spots

    From what Capt. Plasencia said he said they use 105 to select 35 for each individual class. This list is only good for a yr and they will hire 2 classes from it. He said expect Another test next year around may 2014 with way more hiring n new testing method no more LPS de pinga
