nope still waiting
nope still waiting
How about now? lol
Yall heard anything yet
Supposedly they are to b mailing out everything by Oct 1st now.but who knows :confused:
anyone hear any news??
Got a letter with an interview date and a reminder to bring 10 trillion pieces of documentation lol :D
Just got a letter as well now just preparing for the interview :cool:
got my letter also. i see it says we have to take a polygraph??
yep, polygraph time!
As far as the written test goes if I passed with an 85 will that matter against those who scored higher?
Chesapeake says it's a pass/fail system so I have an equal chance of being hired regardless of the score right?
Alot of it will depend on what your list # is. Usually your score dictates how high you are on the list.
How far through the process do they make you go before they make a hiring decison?
Wouldn't it be silly to only hire those who scored a hundred on the written yet still put everyone through the cpat and interviews?
Whats the polygraph about? I don't trust them and I hear people that tell the truth can still fail it.
It is what it is.
If you have nothing to hide you will do OK or something in your life that you don't want to come out, then you shouldn't take it.
Before you all cry, it isn't legal stuff, it is legal.
You go by their rules for hiring or go somewhere else...
BTW 85 isn't a great score, when guys are making 95 and better!
ok. It's just drugs that I'm worried about.
So if they ask me about doing a certain drug that I have NOT done yet a friend of mine died from that same certain drug the machine could still say that I'm lying right?
I'm sure some of those that scored 95 or better didn't finish the cpat under 8:20 or finish it at all. I just suck at math.
I take it that you're just being "real" not rude or hardnosed with your comments.
No, not rude or hard nose, just telling you as it is in Virginia!
If you are doing drugs and have done them they will find out. Even if you get past the poly and get to get a medical physical, the blood work will tell on you!
Cheasapeake has a no drug policy, ZERO tolerance, if you are dirty, you are history.
I doubt anyone who is serious about becoming a firefighter would be doing drugs at all.
but then that shouldn't be the main topic of this conversation.
I have nothing to hide with the poly, just never heard good things about them nor have i ever taken one. I'm nervous enough going through the process guess its just one more thing!
I know some have gone down for there interviews and there going on all week. whats everyone think? did they tell you what happens next??
It was a pretty smooth and painless process all they said is that to make sure your contact information was up to date and that they would be in contact with you.
Did anyone hear anything different or know a timeframe of when we're supposed to hear something.
Wish I did. I would imagine it to be fairly quick. If there is going to be another round of interviews, etc.. before the academy starts in january, I think they would move right along. They got the written test scores out real fast.
nope, still waiting
anyone hear anything yet?
I have been checking my mailbox everyday waiting for something. I finally just called them the other day. They told me to relax because it's going to be a while haha. They are not going to send out letters and make phone calls till after December 1st. And apparently the academy is going to start sometime in January.
