    Anyone know how their process works once you get hired? Do you have to go through their own academy?

    6 week "New Employee Orientation", which im assuming is their own Fire Academy.
    Thats all i could gather from the site(s).

    I had my interview on Monday. I was the second person to go, and i feel pretty good about it.

    First step was the 3 Battalion Chief panel interview. Asked a series of 12 questions, lasted almost 30 minutes. Second step was the Training Chief interview. It was really relaxed, asking personal questions. Then, the Fire Chief walked in halfway through and decided to sit in and ask me some more questions. Once we were finished, the Fire Chief called me into his office for another one on one interview. He seemed to like me a lot, and also loved my tie. haha... Apparently this is different than some of the other people that interviewed, they didnt even get to talk to the Fire Chief like i did? I dont know, but all in all i feel it went well.

    They never did tell me when i should be hearing from them?
    But to answer your original question, i went on sarasotafire.com and just looked at the schedule they had on there. You cant really do much else because you have to be a member. But i looked at the seniority list and used that in the interview, saying how they have already hired 45 people just in 2009 alone! Thats unheard of anywhere else that ive ever seen.

    Oh, and also they interviewed 49, NOT the original 30 they said. Also, from what my buddy said when he interviewed, they told him they are going to hire AT LEAST 22 from this process. One guy just put in his papers this week for retirement so that leaves yet another spot open.

    I had a similar interview volcom the fire chief walked in half way in the second interview aswell. They were all really cool with me and seemed to like me. I hope I did good.

    I heard they are taking 25 out of 50. We should hear something by dec 21. Let's see what happens. Good luck.

    Did you hear this from them ? I was thinking by the end of this week .... for no other reason than it seemed long enough to decide ... but if you got it from HR or Chief then that's better than my guess, i guess.

    Thanks for the update.

    I heard it from someone who asked a chief. Remember they have to do our background checks and what not.

    I heard 22, but who knows. 25 out of 50 still gives a 1:2 ratio. Pretty good odds i would say.

    Hopefully we hear BEFORE the 21st, i dont like playing the hurry-up-and-wait game.
    Good luck to all!

    I honestly couldn't tell you. I was shocked I heard so soon.

    I was way too excited to bother asking how many they have called so far.

    I have two other friends that interviewed and neither of them have heard yet so I dont know what's going on. I would think they have to call everyone by Monday because that's when I was told to come back for uniform fitting and paperwork.

    Good luck to all! I hope you guys get a call soon too.
