    Ok so friday afternoon I get a letter telling me my PQE score doesn't cut it, and I am now out of the running for officer and out of the hiring process till I do better. I little dissapointed I assure myself I will not rest till I get an acceptable score no matter how many months it takes. Then I get a letter a day later stating "whoops sorry we just told you your disqualified, our bad, your actually still qualified pretend you didn't get that first letter". ...:faint:der wut?

    Really think its a good idea to be posting such critical statements about an agency youre trying to get into? As a BI if I found this bam instant read flag and with the amount of quality applicants there are possible even a kick your file back and get a new one of someone who really shows they want to be here and not talk smack about an agency they arent even part of yet. Just sayin.

    Oh come on, who could possibly be reading this thread? It's not like anyone here knows Captain Joseph Mariani, the Commanding Officer of Recruitment and Employment Division or anything.

    I agree with madcitycop. Why chance it. It seems a little sarcastic!

    Just be glad you received the second letter.

    Jobs are kind of hard to come by right now, even it LE. Maybe just be thankful for the letter and the error...

    If I were a BI, I'd be more concerned with all the grammatical errors in his post!

    The necessary talents for report writing have disappeared from today's education system.

    Thats when you don't pay the loan and then go what loan, you guys never gave me a loan, see you even sent me a letter saying you denied me! Why are you trying to make me pay on something you guys think you gave me? I am taking my accounts somewhere else.... :whistling::whistling::whistling:

    Why criticize him? With his desire to question the errors of authority, he may very well be the next president of the L.A.P.P.L.

    maybe the first letter was because they found out that youre European-American (white).

    then maybe the second letter was because they realized that they want good candidates based on qualifications instead of color:whistling:

    but if youre not E-A (white), maybe they thought you were and didnt want you because you didnt meet their quota.:upeyes: but then found out maybe you do meet their "needs" and sent you a second letter.:shocked:

    but then again, maybe somebody in office A didnt check with the boss from office B and sent out the letter.

    then office B supervisor saw what happened and sent out the second letter.

    of course they could have gotten your PQE score mixed up with somebody else and sent you the first letter only to find out that they switched soc numbers by one digit and sent you the second letter later.

    of course there could have been......:faint:

    The joke was about my reaction, the PD isn't even in charge of sending out these docs. Dunno where the all the assumed criticism came from. That being said as far as the dept and I are concerned obviously both letters do not exist.

    Temple Street, where you did your PAT... is the City Personnel Department, not the Police Department.

    It happens all the time. I have had to call applicants after I found out my technicians have sent out the wrong letter and explain that they need to disregard the DQ letter and continue with the process.
