    Lol, no from my conversation with KH I thought maybe calls were going by test location, so they could verify all with the test location at once. Instead of going back and forth between locations, for the people that took it on their own.

    In other news the Bears cut Tom Zibikowski so it looks like his career path was decided for him.

    I wonder if he has been contacted by his BI?

    So I've been in contact with my BI and he seems overwhelmed and highly unorganized. He is a nice guy, but this process requires more attention to detail. For example, I turned in everything necessary in the initial packet and he STILL needed me to provide cell, electric, and gas bills. I also recently got a new car and turned in the registration down at Quinn. For all I know that was immediately filed in the garbage because there is no record of me turning it in. I think above all else, this process is an example of how government works. Things operate at a snail's pace, there is zero accountability, and people suffer because of it.

    Unreal. Make it all the way through FP and get passed up by guys who are months into the process. I'm still holding out that the process will still be in my favor, cause people keep telling me so, but its tough to see it happening..

    ^ there's a lot of us that feel the way he does. I'm a 79 with a 1100 RAN, FP'er. What scares me is the City can do as they please. Numbers fill files and file cabinets. When they get the persons they need, regardless of how they got em, then that's it. It's happened before.

    Since this Sunday is the 1st that means today was the last day to get CPAT turned in so the candidate pool can only get smaller from here on out.

    FPers aren't the only ones who are frustrated. turned in my interest card end of 2009 and then passed the PAT in January 2010; turned down a good job out of state and bought a house in the city because i thought getting on the department was imminent. fast forward over three years later and i'm still playing the waiting game. i get that those who were in final processing were closer, but there are others who made life-altering decisions based on the assumption that they were going to get a shot.

    ^ I personally know a guy that failed Medical due to high cholesterol. A real fit guy with bad blood. Passed him up, but made another Class when they were banging them out a few years back..

    We have a conditional offer of employment in hand.. They had intention in hiring us.. The question is how can we get tossed back in a random pool think that is the question that will have to be answered.

    Because it's the city and they do what they want, because they can. File a lawsuit and they settle, what do they have to lose. One day you'll understand, it's out of your hands. All you can do is wait until the next step.

    Meanwhile, for those of you that make it, I'll see you on the first day of academy and remember, you just never know who is watching this thread or posting here.
