    How long after people took the poly did they get notified that they passed/failed or moved on?

    I was never told I failed anything...do they usually tell you when you are not selected for whatever reason?

    The FD applied for 50 new positions through the SAFER grant. When the government shutdown happened, that pushed all applications back. They are still waiting to hear if they were granted any or all of those positions. If they get the grant, then they will move forward with another class. My guess will be the amount of spots they are granted will be the size of the class. Drill school isn't nearly as difficult as it used to be, but yes you will run stairs and do push ups and pull ups.

    Jeffro they have been doing a few polys per month for the last few months, I don't know the specific number though as it is ongoing. They want to have a pool of candidates ready to go in case they are able to immediately proceed with another class.

    One other item as a reference for the current fire recruit list that is on the Human Resources web site. Out of 40 recruits, they made it to the 180s on that list. So that gives you a reference on how far down the list they may go for the next class.

    Jamrey,

    Due to civil service law, if I remember right you were high on the list. They got to the 180s to hire the last person in the current class. To do that they had to consider you as a candidate 4 times and then eliminate you from the process. Since that was done you are no longer eligible. It sucks I know, but that's how it works. I am aware of some people who had this happen to them in 3 tests and get hired on their 4th try (test).

    Wow, that sucks real bad. What's killing me is I don't know why I was not selected. I passed everything I was in the top 10 with no criminal record, I'm already a firefighter/emt and an Iraq vet. What was so bad I was passed up four times? I understand no one here can answer that but it really crushed me.

    I guess I'll just scrape what's left of my soul off the ground and go through this process again some day and hope that even after passing everything I don't get cut for an unknown reason ...****. good luck to anyone else in the process. Wish you guys the best.

    Look I understand the feeling but I will tell you my story. I was passed over twice, sometimes by people who signed up after me but had the same score. No explanation, no nothing, finished the entire process each time. It sucks, but you know what I did? I took the test again, and again, and again, and on my fourth try was hired. I took the police test, and other civil service tests to keep scoring higher. I was told that sometimes it's about name recognition. They see your name enough in their process and they finally pick you. Do I know that for a fact? No, but I just kept going. There are plenty of FDs hiring and if you are in Ohio, your pension time will transfer within the state. If Cincinnati happens to be the one you want to work at, you keep trying each time they have a test.
