I have to report to Clinton street Friday for medical, my roommate told me that this is just to set up my medical and most likely p*** test again.
Jet is going down to FAS tomorrow for medical - got called yesterday afternoon.
Just wear shirt,tie; (the usual) and a photo id.
I wonder how many are reporting tomorrow?
I was called on a thursday and had my home visit tuesday. They called two of my references, called the job to verify employment and how long I have worked there, they will question everything... our HR manager said i was there 17 yrs and they responded "he has 15 yrs there" so he had to pull out the records and confirm. There was mis-communication on my end for the home visit, they came while I was on my way home but luckily someone was there to let them in and they just do a quick tour of the house to make sure I live there. There was some paperwork that I had to resend (DD214 form that I am most sure that I gave them three copies and they still had from 2009, but whatever) and that was the last I heard from them. They said that they will pass it along to personnel, so I dont know who makes the decision to move you along, them or personnel.
Bags thank you. Did u get called for medical?
For the fellas who are going to schedule the medical tomorrow, congrats and can you let us know how many people are there to schedule em. Thank you.
oh and all you guys should wear jeans and sandals too
http://www.suntimes.com/news/cityhal...hter-test.html I'm just going to leave this here.
Still no call for me today. I am guessing I won't hear anything.Not this round anyways. I asked my buddy to let me know what he finds out when he reports to Clinton street tomorrow. I'll keep you guys posted.
I never really read into the women's lawsuit, but they(lawyer) claimed PAT was purely an upperbody test? What kind of lawyers does the city have working for them? Another thing if I'm reading it right, she hasn't passed CPAT yet, but will get to take it later? After her maternity leave which shouldn't apply.
for one thing, i don't think that the original physical test was gender biased. i feel like most every department in the country was running the cpat and chicago had its own little home brew test that you didn't know exactly what the pass/fail requirements were and so you could have left thinking you just completely did the most amazing job ever and then get a letter six weeks later sayi ng that you failed and you're left scratching your head. chicago was clearly on some bull*****, but that does not constitute gender bias. anyone could have failed arbitrarily since they didn't let anyone know what the passing requirements are.
going to the cpat was the right call.
yes that lawsuit news is not really any news to most of us. I brought up the 2M that would be split among the 50 women that were over the cutoff age months ago, but it wasn't officially ordered yet. As for them being given more time to pass the CPAT. As I have mentioned before, the lawsuit women had two choices. They could go through a CPAT program, which allowed them until December to pass, but would not processed for this first class this fall (if it happens) or they could defer the December deadline and go through processing with all of us with the 8/1, which became 9/1 deadline.
Didn't read the suit, but if somehow it proved that the majority of women failed on the bicep curl test or whatever the test is called where you pedal with your hands and the city had not grounds to the req's of those tests, I suppose they could be granted the judgment based on the disparate impact, just like the AA when they cut out those that passed the written in 1995 but were below a score of 89.
yeah, photo ID...I am also bringing a black pen and pencil, I have brought them to everything. I will also have a copy of all my paperwork and anything they have ever asked my for in my car just in case. trying to cover all the bases. I don't want to delay this at all. My roommate was just telling me that the group starting medicals is who they have slated for Nov class. He said they are also telling the instructors to expect to be down there for a march/april class. that the guess going to instruct will be there for 2 classes, so I am guessing those who haven't been contacted for BIs and medical are being slated for that second class.
At this point I don't see any reason to think anymore of us will be contacted regarding the first class. Now this could change as people get elimintated by the medical but in all honesty I don't assume that will be too many.
Good luck to those going today.
No call for me yet and I am a Jan 09 guy. Passed my CPAT at the end of July with the city paying for it. Not worth yelling at each other about this or putting each other down. It sucks, but I am not going to sue about it, either. Unless I find something that is awfully bad.
