Forty-thousand people took the written test. A much smaller number was eligible for the physical test.

i agree, the dsny website only mentions a physical and a medical

Under the new contract, which goes from 2007 to 2011, top pay for new guys coming on is 5 years; for guys who are already otj, top pay is still 5 1/2 years.

The 2 questions I had were:

1) Does the starting pay bump up after 6 months like the NYPD, FDNY, & DOC? I remember under the old contract the starting pay was $26k & then it bumped up to $30k after 6 months.

2) "After we get the 3, 3.15, 4,4,4,4 ( 6 year deal) we will be at top pay of "; What are you referring to as far as a "6 year deal"? You lost me on that one. Where are you getting those numbers, please post the link.

Copsandwich....How much time do u have on the NYPD? I got some info from my friend. 12 holidays off a year, every sunday off & rotating day. Top pay at end of contract march 2011 is $67,000, long is $1,495 , $900 for uniform allowance and if you work on the truck piccking up garbage you will be getting $63 a day additional.

At end of contract you will make about $85,000---PLUS TIP$$$----- with no night diff or OT. If you work a Sunday or your other day off it is all DOUBLE TIME but there isnt as much OT as NYPD until the snow hits. They are paid weekly. Once you become a senior guy with 15 or more years you can work a sinlge man truck and make about $96 a day

After we get the 3, 3.15, 4,4,4,4 ( 6 year deal) we will be at top pay of

$74,062--Base
$3,700--long at 5 years
$3,133--holiday pay
$1,100 --uniform

$82,000 no night diff or OT

i have heard my friend talk about it but i never got too deep into it..ill ask next time.

Thanks for the link. Now I understand that the "6 year deal" was referring to the NYPD contract & not DSNY. BTW, any idea on what sanitation police earn & how you get on? How long does it take after you become a sanitation worker?

jackieboy,i think its 5 years maybe a little less not sure .if i remember correctly the more time you have on the job the more extra credit you get on the test .a newer guy would have trouble matching the score of a vet because of this.they have results of the test on the chief...alot of guys took it..must pay alot more.
