    Yea the HR is where I blew it.

Is she medically trained to determine what every single persons breathing is supposed to look like. I feel like I'm being discriminated against because I don't breathe like every other person. I didn't fail because I lied. I failed because I breathe differently than others? Or maybe when put in a stressful situation people breathe differently.
                    Are you allowed to petition for a retake? Some places let you petition, pay a fee, and do a retake.

I know it's hard to get a job in the bigger cities like Denver but this is ludicrous. There finding reasons to disqualify people who don't match their interests. I blame the City Council and not the fire department. The members of Denver FD are great and the hiring process is out of their control. Read the Denver 2018 blog. I agree with these guys. Something needs to be done. I will be pursuing options
                        That?s absolutely the issue. If you don?t fit their desires, they will find a way to wash you. I know a handful of people that made it all the way through their process, passing every step, and were told that they ?were certified but not hire-able?. What does that even mean? It?s the most discriminatory hiring process out there.

                            I'd go for South Metro Fire-Rescue and never look back at Denver.

                                Is this forum dead? Where is everyone at in the process. I Just passed the CPAT.
