in the end, this is good news for all of us trying to get hired. The city will be hiring a lot of FFs, and hopefully we will be in that pool!
Hopefully just one more week!
I see... That's interesting, hopefully we hear back soon and the number of firefighters needed increases regardless of which list bc that will help everyone's chances. I wonder what list they would pull from. The fire cadet or fire senior cadet list??
Supposedly they will not be pulling from the previous lists but the negotiations probably didn't end soon enough which is why I think the list was delayed. And also I emailed them and asked if they were going to be changing the CPAT orientation start date (8/20) due to the delay and they said no, which gives me the feeling they will post before the 17th to allow for people to make arrangements to attend.
That's because there was only like 2 minorities in the class of 40 seniors. Doesn't meet Austin's quota
Alright, so be honest. Is everyone else hitting refresh about every 5 minutes on the AFD webpage hoping for the scores to be posted too?
Brockrocks you are showing quite the restraint! I'm averaging easily once every 3 minutes... I wish they wouldn't have said on or before the 17th!
ok, so since we have some time to kill...supposing those of us make the top 120. we take the cpat. does anyone have an idea of what all the medical exams entail? v02 max test? stress test?
It's basically just like a full physical with your doctor, a treadmill stress test and hearing, vision etc.
Has anyone else been asked, "Dude, why do you want to go inside burning buildings so badly?" lol
The list is up! But I'm not moving on this time :(
Me either, but fortunately I received a conditional offer of employment from one of my other top departments last week. So I wasn't going to be able to continue on with this process anyway. Good luck to those who made the top 120 :)
Same here, I did a lot worse than I thought I did. I swear I had it in the bag!
Are people ever contacted if they fall just outside of the 120 range? Any people with experience that can chime in? Thanks!
So how many from the list should we expect to get hired? Is the city planning on doing two classes of 40? I'm ranked around 60th on the current list so I'm guessing I won't be part of the class of that starts the academy in January if they only take the top 40. Does anyone know when the second class of the year typically starts?
Also, congrats to every moving on and best of luck those who weren't so fortunate.
