    Brian,

    I'm in this process as well, I passed the EMS assessment two weeks ago. I haven't heard anything back yet, have you?

    How was the ems assessment do they just use NREMT guide lines or do they have their own? Also Iam guessing you guys are from a pass test and not the written one that was taken earlier this month or last month?

    Just wanted to add some clarity again with my experience, I don't intend to be negative but feel that clarity/honesty is important and has been somewhat lacking as I've gone through the process.

    Again I completed my EMT Skills back in February, Interview in Early April, Background Questionnaire Session in mid April... and now I am at about month 7 still waiting to hear from backgrounds.

    The theme voiced at the start of my process was that things were being rushed to get us started quickly, original I was told of a beginning of July start date, then after that passed it was in the fall (October) which seemed almost like a guarantee based on the amount of time available to complete backgrounds. Throughout as I inquired for more information I was told I would be contacted by backgrounds shortly. More recently I received an email at the beginning of October stating next academy is scheduled to start Nov. 4th and that backgrounds would continue for a Spring 2014 academy.

    I also had contact with a Chief who advised me I wasn't "reachable at this time" , I was unable to get further clarification but it seems that candidates have been ranked, possible by the interview process. It was also my impression that the interview wasn't really pass/fail, especially with the uniform sizing right afterwords.

    So what I have gathered is that there are several groups in different stages from the 2010 test. Unfortunately this hasn't been communicated very clearly and information on status or process is given to all causing false hopes and frustrations.

    All that being said, I offer the best of luck to you all, and suggest patience, as you will definitely need it.

    Got the same email Brian, stoked!

    ARafe, I feel your pain. It's been a difficult process for my group as well. A lot of date changes, format changes, etc, with little or no notice. I was hoping to find out about this much sooner, but it didn't happen. In the meantime I've taken a new job, and if I receive an offer from Sac it will put me in an awkward position with my new employer.

    However, I must say that I have taken it all with a grain of salt. Actually, more than that, I anticipated this happening. It took 3 YEARS after taking the initial test to hear back. After that, I had no illusions that all of a sudden things were going to start moving at lightning speed. I agree that it's not OK to leave you hanging like that and I'm sorry to hear your story, but unfortunately this is local government and we have to put on our big boy pants and jump through the hoops. Patience is key in pursuing a firefighting career.

    I'm lucky enough to have gotten a great new job, and have a potentially great offer from Sac on the way, so it's easy for me to say all of this. I wish you the best of luck in your search, and Brian, hope to see you on the job soon!

    Co. 5: Congrats for making it this far! I completely agree with your post, we all know how these kind of processes go. But sometimes things happen during the process, so when we finally get those job offers it will be that much sweeter. I'm assuming they have slowed things down due to the academy that starts Nov 4. That is their main priority right now, but I will bet once the academy has started things will pick up quick. I have to say that I am staying positive. I have hope that everything is going to fall into place. I appreciate where I am now in the process seeing that they had 2000+ applicants test last month. Co. 5 stay in touch! I will let you know anything that I hear through this exciting time and hope to see you on the training ground! We will be living the dream soon

    Where are you located??
