    Ok, this question is directed to kyhunter42 or battlecomedown:

    Do either of you have any idea if CFD actually plans to hire from the 2012 exam? Is there still a staffing need after the 2011 classes?

    Yes they do. With over 1000 firefighers and a 25 year retirment they must hire every year to keep the current staffing levels without using a lot of overtime.

    After I applied online I received an e-mail stating: "Thank you for submitting your application for employment with The Charlotte Fire Department....You will receive an e-mail the week of December 12, 2012 with your assigned time to sit for the test."

    Be on the lookout next week for your exact time slot.

    Glad to hear they changed the test, this will be the second time I am coming to take the test. The only good thing is I am coming from Charleston SC so it doesn't cost to much for me to take this test...

    Does Charlotte usually get a lot of applicants from out of state? Looking at their website I kind of got the impression that they seem out-of-state friendly and was just curious if they place any emphasis of hiring locally or if it doesn't really matter too much. Either way plan on taking the test and seeing what happens. Good luck to everyone

    Charlotte is very good with hiring people who are from out of state. 3/4 of my probie class was out of state.

    Does anyone know the testing format for the written exam? I heard that it was changed recently. Anyone know specifics?

    I agree, that's great to hear they are open to out-of-staters since I'll be flying in from Wisconsin to take the test.

    The email I got after applying said "week of December 12" so could be any day this week. I wouldn't worry about not getting it today.
