I think they will go fairly deep on the list. For one, i really think alot of people took the test and couldnt careless if they get called. And secondly, lets face it guys, the physical it extreamly tough. That will most definatly level the playing field.
i agree with hopefully the physical cant be weeding out too many....if you really want this job you know when its coming and you get three shots at it
Hey, my fellow candidates.
I'm just wondering if anyone's received anything for the psych test.
I know that guys in the low-mid 1300's have taken the test last Monday, but I'm just wondering if anyone above that number has received anything in mail, yet.
Anyone have any idea how high they might go with this list?
nothing on the psych for me (mid 1400's). have my cpat on the 13th.
first off you do not know where they scored on the list
its been my experience if you go to a few of those prep classes and put sometime in at the gym you will pass the physical
and at all the things ive been to (med, psyc, prep class, cpat) no one or very few look like the type to squeeze into a desk except a group of EMT's that used to go to the prep class the same night as me
I agree with hopefull that the medical is the one weeding people out and I think the run eventually will get some people
I dont think your list number determines when you take you physical or the Psych. I took my Psych last week, and my phys next week. Im in the mid 13xx.
i'm also in the mid 1300's and took my psych last week. i haven't heard anything regarding the medical and my CPAT dates are Aug. 12, 19, and 22nd. it does seem like they are going out of order with all of the procedures with the candidates.
Has anybody else received a letter from their investigator asking for a recent paystub and two current proofs of address? I got this letter about 3 weeks ago. I made sure that stuff was in the mail the next day.
Just curious if anybody else was in the same boat. (Keep in mind, I started my background in February and I had turned in all of that stuff already).
So I wanted to know if there is any truth to this.
Do you think one would be penalized for not currently residing in the city limits????
I 100% did live in the bronx from march 2007 to march 2008, yet had to move up north to deal with some family issues....
I have all my mail from my time living in the BX to prove that I lived their during the required time limits....Do you think I have anything to worry about???
I haven't been asked for any additional documents either. I've been trying to reach my investigator but with no luck. Does anyone know if you receive a letter or some type of notification letting us know when our investigation has been completed and we're cleared for hire or denied?
Hope this guy was'nt your investigator????

An FDNY investigator has been arrested for taking a loaded handgun and handcuffs into work.
Adrian Best, 38, was stopped as he entered Fire Department headquarters in Brooklyn on Friday by Department of Investigation inspectors who got a tip from another worker.
The Rosedale, Queens, resident allegedly had a loaded 9-mm. pistol in a holster and handcuffs that he was not authorized to carry.
Best has been a civilian FDNY employee since 2006 and conducts background checks on prospective employees. He could face 10 days in prison if convicted.
Does anyone know exactly how the FDNY medical is done ( the heart rate test)?
I have the book here and it says first you have to do 3 minutes and 2 second on the stairmaster with no vest @ 59 steps per minute.
Then (following a recovery period) you do 5 minutes and 12 seconds with the 50 pound vest @ rate of 59 steps per minute.
My question is how long is the recovery period after your first time on? Also what is the rule here? Is it that your heart rate cannot exceed 90% of the maximum for any amount of time?
Maximun heart rate......220 - age = Maximum heart rate
multiply that by .90 = 90% of your max heart rate
