    Anyone heard further on the test? Does it typically take an extended period of time from application to test date?

    You mean 5k apps the time you tested, or are you referring to this time around?

    I never received an email invitation for the test, but my governmentjobs application says I've been scheduled for 3/21@ 1730. Has this happened to anyone else?

    I read an interview with the SD City Chief in this months Firehouse. Said they'll be hiring between 30 and 60 over the next two years. Unfortunately, he also said the city is voting on whether or not to change the retirement system which will mean not only does SD pay well below all the rest in So Cal but their retirement will also be worse than anywhere else. Not a lot of incentive to go to work in such an expensive location.

    Definitely took my time also. Not sure about 2 from the oral portion. Other than that feel pretty good.
