    Any idea how long they will hire from this list?

    Does the incoming casino figure to add tax revenue to city coffers?

    When I took the 2001 test, they called me in 2006 to come in for an interview. Due to my husband retiring from the Army and taking a fire job in Arizona, i turned down the interview. I did't think the list would be used as long as it did. So as for how long it's good for varies.
    I'm pretty sure it would as it's a business and it's creating 3,000 new jobs. With those new jobs, people will start spending and therefore more tax revenue will be coming in.

    They have the results of the police test on the HR website. I know the test's are probably quite different, but a 95 would put you 6th on that list. Let's hope a 95 will put us near the top of this one as well.

    Can anyone tell me how many points we get added for military? Also, do they add these points to the written test score or is it added to a later test, physical etc ?

    Just a few more weeks.

    Hi! I think it's 5 points if you have your DD214. As to where they add the points to, I think it's added to the written. You may want to double check on the website or call HR just to make sure

    I just went throught the process last year and I'm pretty sure the people who had the points, had them added to their written test score. Hope this helps.

    I can't believe you guys are all ready speculating what score you might have gotten.

    Word on the street is that they have the results and are just waiting to mail them out. Supposedly they are finishing the Lt and Capt promotions before sending the test results out.

    Just some scuttlebutt I got at Toledo ER.

    "I spoke with the City of Toledo Human Resources Dept today and was told that due to the extreme workload they currently have; coupled with being understaffed that unfortunately it will probably be another 3-4 weeks until results of the Civil Service Exam are known. Not the greatest news but at least its an update, please try to be patient."

    This was copied from the Toledo Fire and Rescue Department Recruitment facebook page about an hour ago.

    I got another speeding ticket today. I think I read in a previous thread that 10 tickets in 10 years will bump you. I think I'm pretty damn close.

    10 points will bump you out, i think 10 tickets would equal 10 points.

    I'd say they are waiting as long as possible to certify the list. The chances of anybody gettting hired soon are probably getting smaller by the day. Kasich's new budget cuts funding for municipal safety forces by half. To make matters worse, the new Republican legislature has forced thru the repeal of the tax on estates worth 3 million or more. This money was used primarily to fund safety forces. Better to cut safety forces than have the rich pay taxes.

    According to this link:

    http://www.ci.toledo.oh.us/Departmen...4/Default.aspx

    The list will be posted online by Sept 16th. Letters to go out after that. I've heard some rumors that the "you failed" letters have already gone out though.

    The list is established. There is a link up to it on the HR website. However, the link doesn't work yet. Probably know by tonight.
