    Did they say that all of the calls were made today? Are they still calling people tomorrow? if not, I guess I didn't make the cut. Congrats to all who did. You have a great career with a great department in front of you.

    I take it by how quiet this thread has gotten that most did not get the call to interview...

    Keep trying guys...

    It took me a year exactly to get hired at my Dept. from the time I graduated the academy.

    I know 2 guys that made the Osceola interviews. They have been trying to get on a Dept. somewhere for 2 years.

    Thanks bro. Yeah they told me I misses the cut by 2 points. Oh well, I will push on and live to see my next opportunity. But I would have really loved moving out of south Florida and working for ocfr. Keep trying guys. We will eventually get it.

    When did you interview and when did they give you the offer? One of my buddies interviewed today and the other tomorrow.. The one today was told they would be making decisions and contacting the candidates tomorrow after 5pm or Saturday. They only interviewed half the group today. The rest is tomorrow.

    I interviewed this morning. And they gave me the offer after the interview. They gave immediate offers (conditional to passing finger prints and physical) to the top 5.. With the rest going after all interviews are done.

    Congrats!!! Marc the Shark- if you don't mind can you or anyone else give me a run down on the EMS scenario and how you performed it. That is the only thing i can think of that i may not have done properly on the NHST. everything else seemed to be cut and dry. Thanks

    Congrats man..... My 2 buddies got hired as well.....

    I know that feeling of the wait it sucks when you know you are that close.

    When I interviewed with the dept I got hired with they said after the interview it would be 5-7 days before they made calls. They only made me wait 8 hours though before I got the offer.....

    I have heard through the "rumor mill" that we will be testing within a few months and hire before the end of the year OR test toward the end of the year and hire after the first of 2013. Again, I am not sure exactly when nor do I know how many other than I heard "close" to the number we hired at the end of last year which was I believe 17. Good Luck!

    After asking the training Capt several weeks ago during our spec ops training he said he was instructed to prepare for 25 to start between summer and October....keep in mind Oct is the beginning of the fiscal year so that makes more sense....i would look for a posting sometime this summer
