    IFD,

    Sir, any word on how many showed up for the oral boards? Or how many didn't show up?

    I was there on 7/28 and heard the HR ladies say 73 no-shows by that afternoon.

    Thanks, but that general information page hasn't been updated in years. The exact same info was online during the last process, a process which included a second general interview.

    The HR employee at my session advised it would take at least 2 weeks.

    There were over 100 that did not show up for their interview or were disqualified for other reasons when they did show up.

    I didn't think it was possible to be disqualified at the interview. For what reasons?

    Not dressing professionally, suit/tie is worthy of a DQ. I saw a candidate in work boots, khakis, and he may have had a chew in.

    Being excluded from participation based on appearance is highly illegal. They likely arrived late, forgot their ID, or otherwise violated the rules listed in the e-mail.

    I agree. But not taking the process seriously (no suit) made for a easy decision by their interview panel. Hopefully one more day of waiting.

    Thank you IFD for answering my question. We are lucky to have your info and input. Now about people not taking the interviews seriously, I agree with you guys, that really irks me because this is such a HUGE deal for me and my family. We just have to trust that the board members saw through these people and made the right decisions. Once again, good luck to those who really want it.

    Firedawg,

    You still in Coastal Ga? I am in SC and if you want to jump into a car pool to save cash on trips up to Indy the more the merrier when it comes to paying for gas and hotels.

    I don't know what the average was. Some people took all their time and others were finished quickly.

    Thanks for asking CFD11, that was very kind, but I resigned from my career dept. and moved back to Indy a week before the oral boards to pursue this dream. I would have definitely taken you up on the offer if I were still down there. Good luck brother and be safe!

    IFD, I read an article from the Indy Star today about the Mayor's proposal to close a $65M shortfall. In the article it quotes;

    "Even without raises for officers and firefighters, the general fund budget for police would increase 5 percent, and the Fire Department would see a 3 percent bump.
    Still, the proposed budget wouldn't pay for police and firefighter recruit classes, ensuring declines in the ranks as retirements mount. That reality means IMPD will have to get even more creative in its street policing strategies to keep the public safe." Here's the link http://www.indystar.com/article/2012...g|IndyStar.com

    Sir, I was just wondering if we should look into this at all or is it just a political tactic being used as a starting point for the bean counters? And thanks again for all of your help and advice thus far. Be safe.
