    My guess is we won't hear anything until July-ish, if you look at the hiring process on the website

    Thanks, same to you. I'm waiting on Exam #2000 also. I'm sure you are as well. I hope all of us from 6019 that were ready to get hired get on the job. I think we all deserve it.

    I had mine Friday, I thought it went well, though I never used up my full time on the questions.

    I have no idea how many people are left though...hopefully not too many

    had mine on Monday, felt pretty good about it. No clue about how many left but if it's true about no shows that helps our odds.

    according to the site notifications for polygraphs will come between now and early September.

    Had my interview on Thursday morning (last week), it went ok but of course I was nervous. Hopefully it was good enough to get me to the next step, there were only 3 other people there when I was, but one of the admin ladies did mention they would be there ALL day interviewing candidates. So now just waiting...

    How did you find out it was 300 people interviewed for 40 positions? That's still a lot of people, I'm surprised. Also, I thought they were only taking 25 this time around since they will be opening up applications again in January (that I was told from Admin). I got through to the next step, my poly is in 2 weeks, needless to say I am grateful that I have gotten this far either way.

    Got a conditional offer 2 weeks ago, the letter came in the mail last week with instructions on scheduling a physical and respirator fitting. Training starts Jan '13 for those who pass the final steps.

    Just because I'm a Rescue nerd, does VBFD have a fully staffed Rescue 1 or is it a "extension" of a company?

    VBFD does respond to medical emergencies and firefighters are trained EMT-b through paramedics, however they do not have ambulances, instead the city relies on volunteer rescue squads that operate out of firehouses city wide to transport patients. Not sure if that answers your question.

    Squad 3 and 10 are the heavy rescue units for the city, and they're fully staffed.
