    Well that can't be true, because they started with 1698 at the written and cut it well under 400 for the physical...

    Looks like they aren't going to be hiring this year. I just received a letter that they now are postponing the Chief's interview. Looks as if my original thoughts of a fast moving process were wrong.

    I think it's just postponed because of the budget crisis. They need to have a better idea of what their needs will be before they start hiring.

    she may not have wanted to get into the whole process of hiring and academy right before she leaves....but it probably is the budget, just would like to know the reason. Oh well..

    I got the oral board panel tomorrow at 730 AM. I hate these because they're tough to prepare for so we'll see how it goes. Anyone else do theirs yet?

    I thought my oral board went really well. I was able to present myself well and added a lot of personal touch and wove it together pretty well with the 3 scenarios. Of course maybe the panel thought I sucked but usually my gut reaction has been a pretty good gauge as to how I was received.

    Anxiously waiting the results coming in a few weeks and hope we all hear good news. I hear this is a good list to make.

    No I haven't received anything yet. It was supposed to come last week but they're probably just dragging their feet since they cancelled the fall recruit class. If I don't get anything by the end of the week I was thinking of calling HR and seeing if they had an update

    Just heard yesterday that the letters were going to be pushed back and not sent out until mid August now... So no worries, just be patient.

    Yup I just heard the same thing. Letters are going to be sent out on around august 8th. There not in any hurry since there not having a class right now anyway. Would you accept or decline a job offer for milwaukee fire?? even though Madison would be a dream job. I am jobless, so any job seems great right about now. What if there was no residency requirement?

    What information is going to be passed along in the next letter? It should be your three scores and ranking tier, correct? Probably also some information on a tentative time for chief's interviews?

    From what I recall, they interview in the order of which you're banded. It's not a kiss of death if you're in the 4th band, but you're doing well if you're in one of the first couple.

    Also received my letter in band A. Interviews are determined by if they're going to have an academy. In past years they have started with band A and progressed down the list. They have interviewed multiple bands at the same time for the academy (Band A and B).

    Got my letter as well. On the list in Band B. I hope they hire soon and I get the opportunity. Need to get out of the job I am in badly.

    Good luck and congrats to all those who made the list^
