    just a suggestion...if you want to score well on the entry level exam, not knowing how to spell "know" is probably something you should work on. just some constructive criticism

    Atlanta is going through a terrible time as far as staffing and rolling black outs. If I were you I would research the department a little better before asking about hiring, because if a department just laid off 100 guys then they will be the first 100 hired back.

    I wouldnt be surprised if Atlanta laid guys off, so just double check.

    Probably at this point in time Atlanta is on a hiring freeze as well as most other cities and fire departments. Shutting down houses and companies.


    Google their web site as well as any other city/county that you may have interest in.

    Did they lay off a hundred guys. I was just wondering because I had talk to somebody and they said possibly June or July they take apps.

    As of today Atlanta is accepting applications again till July 31. As for laying people off I have not heard of anything, but yes they are doing brownouts. It may seem like a bad time, but with the new budget out somethings maybe changing.

    Dude,

    I have bitten my tongue long enough. YOU NEED TO STOP ASKING HOW MANY THEY ARE LOOKING TO HIRE!!!! If you REALLY want to be on that dept. WHO CARES test and do your best stop asking in every damn thread how man they are looking to hire. It does not matter if they are looking to hire 1 or 300 it is your job to do the best you can and earn that spot.

    My intentions aren't to hijack this thread. But so what if he asks how many they plan on hiring. These forums are used to help people out. Plus he never stated that the amount being hired would detract him from testing. Its probably just a curiosity thing. Now, back to the Atlanta Fire Department thread.

    I don't understand Atlanta. They lay off a bunch of guys, and then hire right after. We had a guy do a lateral transfer from here and go up there.

    In my opinion, there are many departments in the metro Atlanta area that are more stable and run just as much at Atlanta.

    And for all of you hopefulls, learn how to type and make complete sentences. Don't expect anyone here to take the time to help you if you can't take the time to type a professional post.

    You might want to try HR. Ask if they have a proposed time line for the 2009 firefighter process. As for the number they are hiring, might want to phrase it a little differently than just 'how many are you hiring?' Instead ask: How many vacancies does the city plan on filling? Just some advice given to me by a division chief during a previous process.

    Your names fits and should share it with a few others who asks all the same questions.

    Most departments figure to hire several classes off of a list. How many depends on vacanies! If its a two year list figure maybe 3 to 4 20 week classes of maybe 15 to 30 or so recruits. Getting hired doesn't mean that you will graduate and go to a house. Only ones with good grades and no failing usuall are the graduates. I know departments who don't allow below 80 on exams and no failing of any exam.

    Try this number to ask the questions. We spoon feed you youngsters too much already.

    Wow, you must be a real Fire Man! You seem so cool and know everything about Fire Fighting. You've got to be just like that guy on Rescue Me, huh? Not everyone here is as green as you are.

    Default Calm Down

    Look, you need to be more mature about the answers your getting. YOU need to do the work and not ask the same questions over and over. I think someone who has rank in the fire service and has been in the system for awhile......you need to listen and quit whining.

    I am sorry that I may hurt your feelings. I never meant to do that.

    In a few years I am going to retire and hopefully youngsters like you will be on the job and have the education to carry what us older guys have carried for so long.

    Ask away all the questions you want, I and some the older guys will never give you any answers. You can ask the other ones as you the questions and get the same old same old - NOTHING!

    By the way sonny I am not Green as you may think! I was probably on the job before your mommy and daddy were born!


    Jay you are correct Sir. No sense in trying to help these kids! They know it all.
