    Have you considered that maybe there is a reason other than the physical why they turned you down and they just didn't say so? Maybe they checked some references, looked at your facebook page or maybe they just don't like your skin color?? You never know.

    I know in the past at my day job I didn't hire people for good reason's but not the ones I gave them. Giving the real reason's may have triggered a lawsuit. Examples are a person with a bipolar condition and a convicted child molester. I would usually just say that we decided not to fill the position.

    That may explain why they didn't call you back.

    It's very hard for me to take failure and its even harder for me to admit failure when i have done a "real" physical and completed it no problem and then to fail something i thought was so easy

    not sure how I'm a pain the *** when i have the asst. chief telling me i should call and inquire what i messed up. i have a feeling they are going to say my lifting technique wasn't up to par..

    That's great, but it was this comment that made me say that. I know it probably goes without saying, but to be on the safe side ... make sure you carry that respectfulness to the people who gave the physical.

    Good luck.
    thanks for the advice, not gonna lie i was a little heated when i posted those comments so yea it may of been a little more rude online but one thing i know not to do is bite the hand that feeds you or is about to lol

Chief on the phone in fact his tone of voice was very encouraging almost as if, he was just as shocked as i was.... he was the one who actually encouraged me to call and ask about the physical, and see what else could be done.
    That's great, but it was this comment
    I've already started the protesting with the people that gave the physical.

    Be sure to remain respectful and not the angry young man you are understandably showing in your last few posts (trust me, I know how you're feeling, I've been out of work since being laid off 1 1/2 yrs ago other than a casual part-time job the past few months and the job search/interview process has been extremely frustrating). Perhaps there will be future opportunities with this department and you don't want to burn your bridges.

    Yea they didn't have that common courtesy......


    like i said before I'm not giving up yet this test was completely irrelevant to anything firefighters do except climbing a ladder up 5 rings...

    Called today and not good news they said i didn't meet the citys standards for the physical i did which in my opinion had nothing to do with Firefighting and was a complete joke strange thing is the other kid they took on as well didn't pass this so called physical


    What makes me so angry is a few months ago i tested for a town overs FD and in the testing process you had to do the "Firefighter Combat Challenge" and i passed it with flying colors but yet i some how am a failure at picking up some damn box with a few weights in it or maybe its b/c i didn't squeeze this thing hard enough with the tips of my fingers... honestly idk why i failed but I've already started the protesting with the people that gave the physical.

I found out I got the job by being told to be at training one night.
    I feel like i got the job b/c of the statement "I'll call you back so you can come get your pager and fitted for gear" He said that on Nov 2nd as he was describing what happens after the physical and he said that on the 9th
