    Either of my employers have gotten faxes, one has a broken fax right now though. It's got me stressing! Are they faxing letters like the ones we gave for references?

    Actually I just talked to HR, I guess a lot of the faxes got rejected or didn't go through so there still sending them out and have to resend some. Whew

    Does anyone know if they are making phone calls for 'conditional offers' on a certain day or will it be sometime within that week, say 4:59 p.m on Friday. He he. Or maybe emails? Anyone?

    I was told by HR that they are making phone calls during the week of Nov 14th, so they might not be on that day exactly but we'll see. Depends on how fast the backgrounds go I think. 8 days though till then!

    Haha I was thinking the same thing. Im hoping the calls are on monday and not Friday or it'll be the longest week ever. In the years past does everyone get a rank eventually or just the top 24 find out when they get calls?

    You won't find out your rank. The alternates will obviously know if they get called, but they call the 24-25 on the list and that's it. Good luck everyone. Relax this weekend and try not to think about it too much.

    From what the HR lady told me during the background session, you would recieve a letter if you did not make the cut. This letter would inform you that you have not been selected at this time but will remain on the roster if future classes are formed.
    As far as the calls for the lucky few, the web site states that Seattle fire will always send more candidates to the medical screen than it has openings. I take that to mean they expect some to drop out from medical or the psychological portion that remains. What ever the case anyone who gets a conditional offer will be 98% in there.
    Let he or she who hears first waste no time in posting, not to brag but to let the rest know it's happening.
    Good luck to all.

    KTF, I was told by HR that they do not rank the final applicant pool and if they do then they will not share that information. She basically explained that after everyone's info was submitted (by 11/01) they sit down and go over all the finalists, hand picking for each class.

    HR told me that those who are not given the conditional offer will not be receiving notification of their rank. So if you're #30 and your one of the first up if they run a second academy, you won't know until they start making offers for the next academy. It's unfortunate, as if you don't get an offer this time, it would be great to know about/plan for the next academy, but it is what it is.

    Thanks to all the posters for all the info and good luck to everyone.
    If I remember correctly I was told during the PHQ interview that those that weren't selected would be receiving a mass email.

    KTF: How is the cadet class going along?

    I actually didn't get selected for the program. They select cadets by 4 things, where you live, where your at in the hiring process, background, and finally your essays you turn in with your application. They called me and said I didn't make it, came down to my essay which wasnt good enough, I didn't know when I wrote it that they used that to choose.

    Ouch, that's tough KTF. With Seattle you gotta give 100% all of the time....even in an essay! Cadet program is a huge leg up if you utilize it properly. Hopefully things work out for you with the Recruit Class. If you aren't selected this time I would suggest applying to the cadet program next August and writing the essay of your life

    Good luck to those waiting for calls!

    Yep we'll see what happens, defidently would have been a big help. Going through the cadet process I now know more what there looking for and it even helped me with my employment interview.

    I have a feeling i'm going to be checking this board every 5 min tomorrow haha.

    Good luck to everyone tomorrow, this is a good group we have on here and I hope to see a bunch of you in Feb.
