    I'm curious how many applicants they're expecting. The last one had over 325 people. I also got the impression they pretty much knew who they were gonna hire, maybe it was just me though.

    I hear that Boynton Beach is/may be hiring 5 or 6 FF/PM soon. They just added 5 guys this month. I have never heard any of those guys ever complain about their dept.
    If your going to cry about doing the job you signed up for do us all a favor and quit, there are plenty of dedicated people standing in line for the best job in the world.

    I got an email back saying they needed a copy of my Fla medic License. I just called them again today, and they said they havent gotten it STILL. So I faxed it yet again.

    Lets hope they got it this time...

    Tough odds, I just hope the testing process and scoring is what it's supposed to be and it's not a hand picked process like so many other have been as of late...

    family members definitely have an advantage. even if they fail the written test multiple times before they actually pass it (and move on to the panel interview), they're still a shoo-in. the next priority is medics (at least, it used to be, that may not be the case so much anymore).

    Legacy always does get the bump up it seems, which wouldn't bother me at all if their family would do the right thing and realistically prepare them for the job.. Why on earth you'd vouch for your son, sister, or cousin to get a job with a Fire Department if they not only were incapable of giving proper pt. care or even physically be in shape to do the job properly, but were going to make the entire department look bad and possibly kill someone else or themselves.. Just doesn't make sense...
