@ the interview they looked to see if u owe $
All they did wAs check real estate taxes I think. They still have to check Peco, Gas, and tickets, etc.
I hope we all make it. We have waited so long. It would be great to work together and become brothers in the long run.
Anyone heard anything lately? Going crazy over here.
Can anyone on the job or with connections confirm if any instructors have in fact been notified/scheduled for those July 15/19 dates? Is anyone still waiting on a medical or a gear fitting?
Call HR ... They might reveal some information
Spoke to hr today. They are still waiting on medicals and are hoping to start end of july.
I don't expect to hear anything until after the 4th
think about this. if you have 6 candidates a-f, and space for only 4, and information comes back on a, c, e, and f do you tell them there in, and then b and d come back and they could have made it because they were ranked higher. what do you do then?
all that said...keep working out, get your NIMS/ICS done, and stay positive. i know I;m trying
Fixxer, thanks for the information. Do you have any insight on how long the academy will be? At the orientation they said they weren't sure of the length due to changes in the curriculum, any idea of length? Maybe that's one of the things holding it up? I think the last class was 19 weeks long or so.
They have the money for the class & they're trying to cut back on overtime, plus a lot of retirements not to mention they're short of staff. (This is a head scratcher.) lol
I think the class will be soon.
I was under the impression that the background checks were completed before the medical exams, I thought HR had to sign off before that was even scheduled. What parts of the background checks come after you pass the medical, why do they have to wait for a passed medical to perform those portions?
I do not know the exact portions. I was told that some portions can not be completed until the medical is passed. I was led to believe that this is because of your hiring status. You have a "conditional" offer of employment pending the medical evaluation. Once the medical is passed, your status is no longer "conditional," whether you know it or not. That then allows them to follow through with those other portions. I think it has mostly to do with financial issues (ie. back taxes, liens, unpaid bills, etc).
I know the issue at hand is the July/August class,
but does anyone know if they're planning on hiring another class off this list? Also, does anyone know how long the list remains active? I know it's 2 years but is that 2 years from when we got our numbers or 2 years from when the first class went in?
Did any one physical get cancel yet ??
In a few weeks we should have an offical date... the wait is killing me
I've been hearing August now also. I'm dying to start also.
I met some recruits who still haven't decided if they really want this. Can you believe that?
I am in good shape, but would love a date to work out to. I run all the time, but this doesn't feel real yet.
I know I passed my physical, but the urine test is taking a long time. I'm not worried about it as I don't even take Flinstone vitamins, but I want to be cleared and put into the next class. Any idea how far Down the list they are now? I met someone who was about #450!
