    I thought it went pretty well but it's always tough for me to tell how i did based off of the panel. How do you feel about your oral?

    I found out that we were put in order by our scores though. All the other guys in my group had the same score as me.

    I'm right there with you. I felt like I connected well with the panel, but you just never know until you get that score. Check your PM.

    So anyone heard anything? What are all the extra interview days that are scheduled right now? Are they having chief's interviews, or is the oral board the last step?

    I guess I am bad at the waiting game too...

    Calif,
    I think the calendar is just reflecting what they initially thought they would need for time. During our orals some small chit chat led the guy at the front desk to say 144 made it to the orals and they were testing 36 people a day, so the last day of orals should have been Friday, 5 Aug.

    The waiting game always sucks but if they follow their calendar we should be getting notice by the end of next week (21 Aug)...possibly as early as this weekend (14 Aug) if they really didn't have a second weeks of interviews. Hoping for this weekend but expecting next, and in all reality I guess it can be much later then that. They seem to follow their calendar pretty closely though, so that is good news.

    Haha. I'm with you man.

    Whenever my email notification goes off on my phone my HR goes up (and I'm sure my BP too) until I check it and find that it's junk mail or something and not from Jo.

    Damn, this is why firefighters die young: all the stress of waiting for results from years of testings, not the stress from the job.

    Yeah, waiting sucks!

    I just saw this thread bumped up on the list and my first thought was that people had started to get background invites.

    Default Today?

    I don't see anything about the list coming out today, but I do see that it says the week of the 21st. I'm starting to think the list will be released after the monthly board meeting.

    I guess between this:
    http://www.westmetrofire.org/index.aspx?NID=661
    stating:
    Approx. the end of Aug.- early Sept.
    Notification of Certified Hiring List
    Certified Hiring List posted.

    and the calender stating 21 Aug "Notification of the 2011 Certified Hiring List"

    I was being hopeful...time to just sit back and see if I can take my mind off it...not likely.

    If you click on the calendar details for the 21st this is what it says.

    Notification of your "Rank" on the 2011 Hiring List, will be sent the week of 8/21/2010.

    So it really could be any time this week I suppose. Going to be a rough on us all if they don't get it out soon. lol

    Of course, as soon as I ask people, I get my answer. Just got an email saying test results and ranking for everyone should be available by the end of the week.
