Hired - Then Fired?

If true, this would be priceless:
  • And the fun continues.

    Tina Skahill made her triumphant return to the department as assistant general counsel in the office of legal affairs. Her first day of work was Nov 1, Tuesday. She was promptly terminated on Wednesday, Nov 2.

    Turns out CPD Human Resources, specifically "The Don", have no idea that we operate under something called a "hiring plan" which is allegedly some type of hiring procedure the city follows to ensure fair and open hiring processes.

    There is someone who knows all about the hiring plan though, that is the inspector general, who ordered Tina removed from the payroll. Turns out ole Joe wants to enforce policies that require at least the charade of fair hiring instead of just picking someone based on their flavor or their association with some prestigious or noble organization. Tina will likely be back after the department goes through the song and dance of actually posting the job and "considering" applicants. Anyone who applies other than Tina is a complete fool.

    Kudos to whomever blew the whistle on this nonsense, word is it was someone from the inside whose has been on the outs with the new regime for some time (you could FOIA it to find out). Just another example as to what happens when the department is left to its own devices with no oversight. The Don specifically is either complicit in his duties or part of the corruption, either way, not someone who should be running a major department's human resources division.

    The best and the brightest indeed!
Would someone please show O'Neil the door? This tool causes the City and the Department more headaches than a CompStat meeting.

Maybe Tina can use Granny Clampett's legal gambit
and threaten to sue the multi-colored panties off
Rahm Emanuel's narrow and swishy ass unless she's hired?

Heh...
Rumor is that the Feds are here only to bother
Policemen about use of force incidents previously
adjudicated as justified, while dirty, evil, rotten
cock-suckers like Don O'Neil are left in place
to thrive and prosper.

I was a sergeant in a plain clothes investigative unit. I frequently sat in on interview boards for officer who wanted to transfer into the unit. Not once did any of those who appeared before the board ever make it on the transfer order, although many were more then qualified. And, when someone did make it to the unit, they were never one of those who appeared before the board. How does that work? Many times when the opening was posted the requirements were tailored for someone they had in mind and requirements that very few could meet. There is nothing on the up and up about much of anything in this town.

I've given up on this department to implement fairness in lateral moves such as officers on the watch to tact or to units; sergeants and lieutenants from patrol to units.

this whole thing about going through human resources is a joke. it's just a hoop you have to jump through before your "clout" signs you in. The HR process gives bosses a chance to turn someone down who isn't "on the list," but if you are on the HR list, they say, "Yeah great we'll look into it." once you get on the HR list for a lateral move, you still have to make your phone call. there are lots with the skills, experience, education and training who do not get into units because of a lack of political connections.

New philosophy now: don't work for this job, make it work for you.

I was CPD in a unit for awhile that was primarily civilian. These poor kids would put on a suit and tie to go in and have their interview which had already been decided well in advance as to who was getting the promotion. Felt sorry for them. Even the civilian unit bosses giving the interviews would roll their eyes at the song and dance charade.

Sorry, there's no hiring plan for tac teams. I assume you think you deserve to be on the team and she doesn't. About the only thing that qualifies anyone to be on a tac team is an overwhelming desire to risk their career, freedom, and finances to generate numbers for some clueless boss. If you're dumb enough to volunteer for that, you deserve a spot on the team.

The obvious way around this is to tailor the job description to the person you want to hire. It happens all the time. "Gee. Looks like she's the only qualified candidate!"

How about the 2 from 18 who mysteriously appeared in Gang Investigations on a phone order in the middle of the period. One is a Rat who beefed on a Sergeant in while 12 on Tac, the Sergeant took 200 plus days and they reward these 2 with a unit. No interview or application necessary.

I heard nobody liked her from the tac team either. so now , she got days working the school unit. put it this way, at least their not on first watch !

Yes, I wrote it and I am not confused. When did a sergeant in any unit actually have a final say on who is transferred into the unit. We knew that the clout was the final authority. This was long before the Feds showed up. Terry Hillard ran things then and everything was clout. My point is the interview boards and vacancy announcements were only for show. They knew from the start who they wanted in the unit.
