    Are the interviews conducted in groups? If so how many people are in each group?

    No, the interviews are on an individual basis before a board of 3 firefighters of various ranks. The group you may be referring to is all the people scheduled at the same time you are. You will probably be given instructions together in a room and then sent to your interviews from there.

    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.
