    You most definitely can get hired with a DUI. Some cops (keep in mind, they arrest people for DUI) have a DUI and they still get hired.

    Your problem lies in that if any of your competition doesnt have a DUI, they beat you. It can come down to you and one other guy, they still beat you. You just have to wait for the cards to fall where you want them. Your thoughts should be at 27/28, do you want to spend the time and training to do continuing on this path or try for something else. Can you, in your most honest thoughts, wait another 10 years to be a paid firefighter?

    You have an EMT-B. Bouncing around local departments can earn you a pretty fat pay day if you are willing to work, even part time.

    If you do get those tickets removed, still tell background investigators about them. Nothing is sealed

    In continuring with what your fellow firehouse mates are saying, are you doing anything to make up for it? Volunteer with MADD or Narcotics Annon. Above all, show a pattern of good rather than disregard for the law.

    Source: I'm in the exact same boat except with police. No DUI but other dents in the background and plenty of rejections from employment. I'll get one shot each with NYPD and FDNY (assuming 6019 gets what they're fighting for).
