    It seemed to me that the interview was pretty cut and dry. If you can breath and didn't dress like a slob and didn't kill anyone you made it.

    I thought it had something to do with the random candidate number, or when you filed for the test.

    You should call and ask if classes are filled and see if you get a different answer ... I can't get anything out of them

    I had my medical last week and got fitted for gear this past weekend. Emailed HR to see if they had an updated list, and to see where I stand for Sept 14th.....still no answer

    I'm sure they had a few more do physicals just in case they were a few short. just because you get fitted for gear and your size goes on a piece of paper doesn't mean they order your stuff.

    Here's to a class in Feb-March time frame.

    Well, I posted a link to that forum a few pages back. And someone asked a question so I answered it. I'm not being negative. I'm passing along information to people.

    1. Some guys I talked to who have been on the job a while said they "have" to put a 3rd/4th class through because the department needs it...

    2. During my interview, personnel was pretty convincing about putting together (at least) the 3rd class for this winter...

    3. Last time they hired (2007), they ran 5 classes off that list...


    ...for what it's worth...

    Big griff no one is getting a big head from their gear fitting it's called being excited for a dream job those guys who did get through all the steps til now! Sorry you have had some trouble but let these guys soak it in that it can all be reality for them soon. Maybe you will be good for the next classes they conduct! Good luck to you!

    And FYI most people on here have been on multiple forums so no need to copy and paste we all have seen each post rumors and all!

    As we older guys have said before, relax guys and don't get to worked up. You all are going to get ulcers before your time to get them.

    The Phiily HR folks do not work at a high speed mode. In fact if it could be proven they are hoping some of the applicants will get tired and drop out, leaving the jobs to be hired to the brothers and sisters.
    Stay Safe and Well Out There....

    Quick questions....

    Where does one actually go for gear fitting? I was told "the safety trailer" at the fire academy... does anyone have anything more specific?

    I'm assuming you park outside the gate again.

    Thanks and good luck to all.

    ALWAYS park outside the gate. Walk around behind the Academy building, the Safety trailers are past the apparatus doors.
