    Default Eligible list

    List won't expire in February 2014 but they may abolish it sometime between July and December and start a new list. And also they may have a new process from hiring. Where did I get this info from. Human resources you can call them yourself. I actually talked to a captain that works with nashville fire he claims they may send out notices at the end of this month but he isn't sure about that. All I can say is keep your contact info up to date, peace

    SO, the interim FD chief put out the plan for NFD's future. If you like EMS stuff you will love it. If you wanna be a fireman, well you will hate it. The plan is that new hires will rotate between fire and ems divisions. This means that you may be assigned to a ambulance as a EMT for a month, and a engine as a Firefighter/EMT the next. I have even heard the rumor that the notice as to how you are assigned will be made when you report to shift that morning (i don't see that working). This rotation will take place until you complete the first 10 years of employment. They are planning to add 2-3 more ambulances which is a plus for citizens and EMT/Paramedics looking for a job with the NFD. If your hopes of being on the big red truck everyday you come to work is your plan, then the NFD is changing that for you. I also have heard that this current list may get one more class out of it.

    Hey Mustang,

    The official word is 6 months on an ambulance and 1 year on a rig until the 10 year mark. So, assignments aren't going to take place the morning you show up on shift (I agree that that would be weird). Once 10 years is reached, the personnel have the option to stay on the ambulance or go full with suppression. We'll see how it all shakes out...

    I have to agree with you Detroit. We all know that the process is a long one, and to have not yet announced a test date and to plan a class in the Fall would lead me to believe that there will be one last class from this list.

    I know when they took us in for our interview, the gentleman told us that it was just a formality. We were on the list to be hired, so Coreology, I'm a bit confused by your statement. From having past experiences phoning human resources, I don't think a phone call is the answer.

    Default information

    Well that's what I told you on where i got my information from. And I said you can call yourself and they probably might tell you the same thing they told me because employment is subject to change. But when I called that's what I was told at that time period. But you can take my comment as a lie, salt and pepper, what have you. Im just telling what I was told by them. But if you want to find out what's going on call them for yourself you don't have to take my word for it at all

    Corey, the fact is, they can tell you what they want, when they want. They don't have to reveal anything and honestly, the human resources office gets bombarded with calls about employment, and our emails were pretty specific about not calling human resources. From past experiences with the testing process, unfortunately it's a waiting game, sometimes with no direction or idea, it's a "wait until you are notified" issue. The confusing thing, as I posted before, when we were taken in for our interview, we were told that we were on the list and it was just a formality. So, until there is some forward motion, we wait, everything else is just rumor mill.
