    Not for nothing, doesn't your shift have an officer that you could discuss this with?

    For the amount of time you took to get on here, log in and write this, you could have called whomever over sees the legal aspects of your current job and recieved advice and assistance.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

    This is a joke right ? It is something called priorities. Your fulltime employer comes first. I dont feel one bit sorry for you. You need to worry about getting through your probationary period. I bet you are from Illinois because this kind of whiny B.S. is becoming the norm around here.

    If your any good what does it matter what he says or dose. Your training, attitude, and work ethic will speak for it's self. FULL TIME JOB COMES FIRST!!!I don't understand the shifts but if there not on the same days work both places. It's a know brainer.

    Sometimes wearing "two hats" isn't its all cracked up to be... is it?

    Remember this grasshopper.. you are on probation at the full time FD. That is where the priority is. They are putting the food on your table, not the part time FD.

    No doubt. Tell the part time slot to go **** themselves. If you must have a second job, do something different. I love to swing a hammer when I'm off...beating all those little nails in the head is a great stress reliever.

    The question you also have to ask is location of jobs. I can fully understand if his part time job is in his home town and he feels an obligation to his citizenry as opposed to his full time job that wouldn't be the ones protecting his "mom and pop" but does pay the bills.

    This is just me, but I really think Mr. Fat Grover left out some of the story here...it seems way to simple to just let your new Lt/Capt. know what is going on. If he has worked 3 years part-time in the bizz then he knows what to do. I don't buy this story.....Just me.

    Sounds like this officer is dillusional. Regardless, nut-up and tell the PT Department to pound salt.

    If i were the guys collecting information on incidents, I would be very careful. That could be considered evidence gathering. #1 if these were true problems at an incident they should be handled immediately and not tucked away in a note book. #2 evidence gathering could be cause for termination.

    I would resign my position with the PT FD. You now have a career to worry about......and that's the one that is going to allow you to pay the bill's and put food on the table.
