    12 month tests have nothing to do with it. This (the delay) is coming from City HR...

    I believe she's the one who told me June was the academy start at my interview. I thought the tall skinny lady was the head lady.

    I was also given the September start dates of the 9th and 13th. They said they hope to get the letters out next week. I wonder how many people have given up with all the delays?

    This is getting pretty lame, even for an already flawed process.

    I called and was told I was clear finally. They will tell you where you stand. Just be nice and realize they are under stresses that we don't see.

    I was waiting for my financial check before, but now they cleared me as I didn't owe the city any money. Do Ask though. You wouldn't want to be overlooked because you owe some parking tickets.

    Deadbeat is right, I was just told that I was clear. I've done all i could to get hired. Hopefully I'll get my shot.

    Anyone on this forum obviously wants it. You don't follow this closely if being a fireman is not something we want very badly. I'm pulling for all of us

    I'm still listed as "in hiring process" even though I'm cleared with their checks. I should get a letter. Someone predicted they'd get to 430 on the list
