    Just received a big nothing from the mailman. Looks like we might not see anything until Wednesday with the upcoming holiday. We're going to give our employers a whopping 5 days notice

    I understand that fuss but why do the vets know 2 weeks before and the non vets less then that?? Why wouldnt they have them all done?? Some had their medicals earlier this month?? I could see if you had your medical by or the week of the 13th but really?!?!? Sorry I'm the impatient one not my hubby!

    To answer your question..ALL vets that pass everything are being hired first...they have to pick and choose everyone else, however they do it. That is why vets have gotten letters last week. That might not be what you want to hear, but that is what is going on.

    Considering that the city received funding to hire vets, and a good chunk of vets interviewed the first week of July..it would make sense they get notified first.

    If I had to make sense of it, if you interviewed in July, you would be in the Sept 10th class, and if you interviewed in august you would be in the Sept 14th class..as far as veterans go. If you were a non-vet the same should apply for you...except how ever the city picks them to be good to go for the class...or..you're an alternate..maybe there is a dartboard with names..or maybe they use that random number that we got assigned when we signed up for the test...If you're a vet and passed everything you should be in a class..if you are a non-vet I'd wait until I got a letter..or call HR.

    I figured the number would be a little move in favor of veterans..like 60-20. Either way, good luck to you guys, hopefully I'll see you on the job in a year or so if they put a spring class through.

    I heard that at least one class around February is a pretty sure thing, but a second class is a possibility. I am not stating anything, just what I heard from others.
