    I'm not real upset. I can't pay my mortgage on a 40 hour schedule. The PAT was a breeze and I thought I did okay on the written. I was just hoping to get an interview for the experience.
    Job offers were supposed to be today. Good luck! Lake County interviews are next week.

    Sorry Bro, but I don't think you got the job. Offers were SUPPOSED to happen today, and physicals next week.

    Well 12 of us were interviewed. I spoke to another guy, who was interviewed same time in Sumter, he called and asked his name be withdrawn from consideration ... that means he didn't get a call either.

    So maybe calls haven't gone out yet.

    I talked to that guy today. I saw him at another interview.
    Physicals are Wednesday. Job offers were last Friday. I am willing to bet most of those positions were filled with volunteers/part timers.

    That's been happening at most depts. lately.. Makes me wonder why they even open a hiring when they already know who's getting the job...

    Because County/City policy requires them to do it. If you were a part timer or volunteer for that department, you would feel somewhat entitled to a job there too.

    Not if I wasn't the most qualified.. I would feel motivated to do what I could to become the most qualified.. But that's what separates a lot of people and unfortunately entitlement is what separates a lot of the most qualified candidates from getting jobs....

    For many years I have watched people with less experience and qualifications get badges instead of me. It means nothing.

    I talked to a POC guy that i knew at the written test. He said they only had like 4 of their guys taking the test. I saw him and the blond girl that worked there ... maybe they just found 6 that they liked more than us ??
