    Default Canton, Ohio

    Anyone know how many the department is looking to hire? Got my letter and it says the testing is complete. Finished fairly well so hopefully I get the call.

    The city said they will be hiring 12 in the first round with a possibility of an additional 12 towards the end of the year. I also know that they are in need of medics and will jump around the list to get them. Hope this helps ya.

    I heard that they were going to hire 25-30 overall within the next two years. They are going to hire 12 ASAP. Where did you finish?

    I finished in the top 30, not as well as I had hoped but I think it will get me an interview and maybe a job within the next two years.. not the first class. What about yourself?

    Haven't heard anything yet. I finished pretty good, top 10. Not sure when they are going to start backgrounds. I heard rumors that they wanted to hire by July/August. Anybody else hear anything.

    The city was just approved to hire 15 in the first class.. this means they will be giving 45 interviews.

    So did any of you guys read the article in the repository on the budget? Wonder if that will impact the hiring?

    Well had my panel interview last week. Thought it went well. Did anybody else go through their interview yet? Now for the hard part, sit and wait. Hope the calls go out soon!

    Good luck guys, I hope you guys get the call. Canton City is the department I'd like to get on when I get older. Any of you currently on a vollie/paid per call dept in the area? If so, which? (If you're willing to share that).

    I'm #90 on the list. Just completed my EMT Basic and am signed up for my 240 to start in the end of Aug. Sure wish I would have had these under my belt prior to the test. Keeping my fingers crossed that they go deep on the list.

    I unfortunately recieved a rejection letter but was curious if anyone has moved on in the process?
