    Default Seattle postpones pre-employment process

    Please note that due to a postponement in the hiring process, candidates on the recently established Firefighter Register are not likely to be contacted by the Fire Department regarding pre-employment processing until early 2009.

    And for all of those testing this year, if they can't scrape together money for a September 2009 class, you can look forward to waiting until January 2010. Ahhh the magic of city budget. December 2007... "geez! look at all this grant money laying around that we have to spend! buy! buy! June 2008... Crap! we are out of money! Stop! No hiring allowed! We're broke!"... Too bad that their hiring process can only find 14 recruits that can pass out of a class of 24. Can the citizens of Seattle hear their money as it flushes down the toilet? ;-)

    I got my background packet today. Looks like things are starting up again. Later this month is my psych test.

    Default Packet

    I received my packet as well Finfan. Does anyone have any helpful information about the process? I was wondering if we were actually doing our CPAT the time of the pre-employment process.

    I don't think so, I think we schedule them after we take the psych exams.

    I am not 100% on htis though.

    Default pre-employment

    So what date are you scheduled finfan? I report the 28th. Is the voluntary equipment practice for the CPAT or to get familure with some of Seattle's fire equipment?

    Default Psych test

    So how did the psych test go for everyone? I thought it was a nice bonus to meet and greet with some of the firefighters from Seattle and to get a hands on taste of their equipment after the test.
