    How long was your interview? anyone have any idea about how many they are interviewing per day? I wonder if they are still calling people back for interviews?

    I was also told they are hiring 90. I wonder why they told you 60 out of 290...
    I also heard there were approximately 200 applicants remaining and that was prior to poly. Regardless, I'm just happy to have made it to the interview stage.

    Not sure, just what I heard from the interview board. But what I'm thinking is they may try to get a fast trac class going for oct cause by interviewing only 8 people a day there is no way they will complete all interviews by oct. especially if some haven't even done poly yet. As far as I know everyone that has interviewed has been certified medic, fire or both. Just my thought

    Had my interview this past Tuesday. Lasted an hour and they told me they were hiring 90 total with 60 for October and 30 for April. Also, I don't have any certifications except for my Bachelors degree.

    clf0144, I'm the same way, and had my interview already. I don't have any certs, but my Bachelors degree.
    From what I've heard, the hold up can be due to previous employers not returning the fax information they send. I was also told that they were conducting 12 interviews a day there were 90 spots available, and the hiring dates were Oct and March.

    Texas817, the interviews vary in time. They can be 20-30 mins, all the way up to 1-1 1/2 hours. It just depends on where the panel takes it.

    I called two weeks ago, and the lady told me they were trying to schedule where out-of-townees could do both poly and interview the same day to make it more convenient for us. I think I'll make a call and see what's going on.

    Good luck to everyone who has interviews or poly tests this week. These next few weeks of waiting are going to feel like an eternity.

    For all of you guys that have had interviews or have got called up for inteviews. Are you out of towners?
    Recruitment office told me they made cuts before poly, she said if you have taken your poly then they will call you for interview. Not sure what to make of this.

    Had my interview today. I guess I've done everything that can be done at this point. Time to wait! They said at least four more weeks of interviewing before any decisions will be made. Good luck to everyone that is still in the running, may the best men/women get the position. No doubt they deserve it
