    congrats again broham... I got knocked out of the process after the panel interview even though I thought i did very well in the interview... hell I was told by one of the officers there that one of my friends that went up was the best interview of the day and even he didn't get a call back. So good luck to those that are getting close.

    I made it to the chief's interview and am still waiting to hear anything... I feel that both my interviews were pretty strong, but you never can tell... Crossing my fingers though!

    Exclamation Got the call.

    Hey guys,

    Received the call for the chief's interview scheduled for early November, I did my panel interview back in late july. Any word on what there hiring status is ? how many of the 36 have started ? Where are you guys at in the process? Any information would be greatly appreciated as i am very anxious to get back on the job, I was laid off from Lehigh Acres Fire after 5 years of service as a fire/medic, 2 of which were at Lehigh Acres Fire Dept.

    Lehigh Acres laid off 35 firefighters out of 110 firefighters, the biggest 1 time lay off in florida fire dept history. Its getting really hard to get a job, I wish all of you searching the best of luck.

    Thanks in advance!

    I know Tampa hired a bunch of people in Oct. Was wondering if they are going to open up hiring again in spring time.

    Their recent Academy just graduated on Tuesday or Wednesday. Through the grapevine I heard that they won't be hiring again until at least February or March. I know they were accepting applications back in September/October, but I don't know if or when they're going to open it back up. It sucks, cause Tampa is in my top 3 departments.

    I guess Tampa is going off a previous list. I was wondering if they would be opening up for new applicants in the spring time. I had to miss the last hiring portion so I was hoping for something in the spring time. Any word on this?

    A buddy of mine tested too and said he went over the allotted time on an event by a few seconds and still passed. Anyone know how they score it?
    Why set a time if they aren't going to enforce it? Not fair to the applicants who "really passed" the PAT.

    Just one of those things that will never be acknowledged. Damned if you do and damned if you don't. Same as most of the rest of the system.....

    Yeah, i hear ya. It is just so competitive out there that i think that it is only fair to stick by the rules. I don't wish failure on anyone.
