    Hey everyone. First post here... Just got my email with testing time on the 21st. Very excited. I have many questions, maybe someone could help with some answers. I'll be coming from Michigan, alot of out-of-staters sitting for the test this year? About how many people who pass the written and CPAT tests actually move on to the background investigation and then how many get hired as recruits? Anyone know how many recruits Charlotte is looking for?

    And one more from Ohio

    I read that Charlotte's population is growing at a rate of 50,000 per year. If this thread is any indication, more than a few of them are firefighter. LOL

    Anyone else having trouble with notification of test times? I have spoken with the recruitment office a couple of times (they have been super helpful) and they say they have my application and my email matches up correctly, however I am still not receiving the notices for the times on the 21st.

    I'm coming from northeast Ohio to take the exam. Looks like Ohio will be well represented for this test.

    Anyway, I have a couple of questions about the later parts of the recruiting process. If a candidate is selected for an interview, how much advance notice does CFD give them (one week or several weeks)? Similarly, if a candidate is selected for hire, how far in advance of academy will they be notified? For instance, does Charlotte call you a day or two in advance (as Cleveland has been known to do)? Or do they give you the chance to at least give your current employer two weeks notice?

    I know we have a long way to go before we get to that point, but since I'll be relocating from Ohio, I want to have some idea of what to expect.

    CFD usually gives a few weeks notice (2-4) for the interview. As far as the academy, it all depends. CFD was not sure if my class was going to be scheduled, so we were not notified till the last minute. I was given 3 weeks notice to move and find a place to live in Charlotte. You will have enough time to give a two week notice. Any more questions send me a PM
