    I usually do. Normally its every August but sometimes you never know. I also looked at their budget for 2011 to see what they had slated...damn budget cuts!

    Cobb will not be hiring anytime soon. My good buddy works for cobb and they are furloughing for sure. As far as laying offs are concerned he didnt say anything about that.

    I hear that Gwinnett is on a hiring freeze. Also I hear they aren't developing the new stations because of budget cuts and there is no funding for new staff.

    Gwinnett isn't in better shape then Cobb. They have been in a hiring freeze for the last two years while Cobb continued hiring. They also lost some holiday pay and those stations won't be built until the economy turns around. Cobb is the number one dept in the state followed by Gwinnett.

    True, last year was a class of 90 and starting soon is a class or 20-30. A good 20-30 did not make it through the class of 90.

    Not to be a jackass, but if you are looking for a job with any reputable fire department in this state you might want to brush up on your spelling and grammar skills.

    I appreciate that you have learning disabilities, but at the same time you can take a few extra minutes and look up the spelling of the words you are about to post on here. Everybody on here appreciates your insight on these departments, thank you for that. At the same time, you may not be considered reputable if you are writing in very incomplete sentences and misspelling very basic words. Check out Dictionary.com, it will help you.

    Cobb county was on 11 Alive news at noon today talking about saving the library instead of public safety pretty much. Public safety to get like 5 furlough days this year alone then it looks even worse for next years budget is what the report was discussing.

    5 days this year and a 10% budget cut. Looking at about 6 million dollars to be trimmed by the 1st.
