They could be scheduling by last name, social security number, birthdate, alignment of the stars, application number, or your score. There is really no way of knowing. Take each step as your priority and do your best, Cincinnati needs more ambulance riders
    Are you participating in the mentor program for the new classes Carny? I've got no problem riding the ambulance for years straight if I get this opportunity.

    I applied to be a part of it, I have not heard yet if I will be used or not.

    Is the link to the PHQ in the email not working for anyone else?
    when I click on the link it takes me to the HR home page. I can't find the PHQ.

    If you still need the PHQ . . . .

    1. Go to the city's website.

    2. Jobs with the city.

    3. Jobs open to the public.

    4. Click on fire recruit

    A city employee was talking about it yesterday and its almost 4 years old now. The list has been off the HR website for some time now.

    Pay no attention to rumors. The list was extended last year and does not expire until 1/13. I know they took the list down months ago off the website but it does exist and is being used. The city applied, received, and accepted a 6 million dollar safer grant to hire 40 from the 2009 list. Those 40 have been offered jobs and will be going through their medical physicals. The tentative start date for that class is October 22, 2012.

    With hiring 40 this year, why are they doing another process now? Do they have plans on taking from this list or just having it on hand?

    The reason they are hiring forty now is because they expect close to that number of people to retire in the next two years. I believe there have already been 15 or 16 this year. With the safer grant, the Feds will cover the cost of all forty for two years and when that time is up the total strength of the fire department should be close to where it was at the beginning of this year, therefore the city will be able to hire forty with virtually no financial impact to the city above what it already has. The plan for this new recruit class is to hire forty sometime late next year. Look for the city to apply for a safer grant for that class as well. The class from this process is to hopefully get our strength up again closer to the authorized 841. Currently the department is in the 760s. Everyone has to remember that anything can change and everything is dependent in the economy. There is always a possibility of no classes next year as the people who took the 2009 test discovered. Focus on doing your best and scoring high on the list, then wait and see.

    Let the process drag.....more people quit and eliminate themselves. Best case for starting a new class is summer '13, more likely fall '13.

    They wont take this class until this time next year if they are approved for another SAFER grant. I'm sure they are more focused on all of the new employees they have from the SAFER grant they were just awarded this year.

    Got an e-mail today saying I passed the physical. Next part of the process is evaluating 1300 PHQ's before they set up interviews. Anyone know how many they are anticipating to interview? I wouldn't think it to be partical to interview 1300 people. Maybe the PHQ will be used to weed out people from the next step in the process? Anybody got any other ideas?

    Indy interviewed over 800 in 3 straight days, so it is possible (interviews are usually less than 20min timed). I also wouldn't expect a super in-depth review of PHQs. Takes too much man hours and $$$. Their poly process drills into your background, that's where they spend the time/effort.
