Keep your chin up Morgie, You'll get your call eventually....
Thanks! Keeping the chin up. I have a lot of other things going for me just was really hopeful was all.
Nothing additional regarding future hires. Just a mentioning of when people retire they will continue on with hiring from the list etc. No dates regarding when or any other info.
When did you get a letter? and did you get a letter saying you didnt get hired? I am just curious as I interviewed and have yet to hear anything.
Unfortunately this isn't uncommon where politics and career fear have turned many civil service jobs, especially the fire department, into a job corps....Quote:
I was ranked #3 and didn't get an offer....
Don't give up. Despite HR's best efforts, we still manage to get some of the best of the list in time.
Whats up everyone....... I have about one year left in the Army and am planning on a postion with the St. Paul Fire Dept. I'm currently enrolled in a EMT-B class here in El Paso, and also SCUBA qualified. My goal is to be apart of a water rescue team when I return home however, I was taken by surprise to see how difficult this process seems to be. I will be home on leave next week and would apperciate any advice on how I could get the ball rolling while home....
Thanks in advance
Good to know...Thanks
Is there anything I can do while home on leave to get things rolling with SPFD?
I got a letter also stating "unable to offer you a position today" so, does that mean we were going to be offered jobs if they wanted to hire 18?
Do you have your paramedic card? I am just curious to see what kind of guys got offers for a position and those that didn't.
I was at the City Human Resource office today, sounds like it’s going to be awhile until the next round of hiring.
The city just put this last hiring in motion. The process started last March with the written test. This list that has been established will last anywhere from 3 - 5 years. So the best thing you can do is just prepare. Get your medic, maybe some experience if possible, and stay in shape. The when the city posts the process again apply and test.
Thanks MNFAZER, You are 100% right. I just picked up my Fire Science 1 books yesterday, my EMT-B course starts mid Jan, and am looking at doing the volunteer thing up north until St. Paul opens up.
Any updates on the hiring process. How many got hired? Any word on future hirings?
Just let everyone know, here is the latest updates on hiring:
This information was last updated on March 29, 2011.
14 candidates were hired on February 14, 2011 from the 2010 Firefighter Eligible List.
The Saint Paul Fire Department is anticipating a Fall 2011 Recruit Academy.
I am not sure if they interview people again or if the choose those who got letters last time? Anybody know the process?
hey guys trying to follow along with the st paul thing i took the test and im in the 97.5 group with no points... what are the chances at getting an interview or job out of the deal i was really pumped when i first got my score and was then extremely disheartend to see the other ones not complaining just curious to the chance any help would be great, and good luck to everyone
Your chances are just fine, there should be quite a few hires off this list. I personally know a couple people in this most current class that were in the 97.5 rank.... In reality this is no more than a lottery. Are you a medic or in Medic school?
