PM's are on now. It was the psych. I could have requested the results for 150.00, but I pretty sure i know what I said.
Has anyone heard anything else regarding where they are in this process?
Latest word from AFD is there will be a class of 12+ starting mid-March. That probably includes half entry-level and half lateral if they follow the same hiring guidelines as past academies.
I just noticed that Aurora FD just reopened their Lateral Position, that tells me they aren't getting enough apps for that position to do another class, or get the numbers they need.
I just spoke with HR. They are moving through the background checks, one-by-one, in order. Those who are still in the process, but haven't been contacted by an investigator, will be contacted soon. They are hiring 4-8 entry-levels for a March 11th academy. I also think that about half the academy will be laterals. Good luck everyone.
I just heard that Aurora has given out 3 conditional job offers so far. Anybody on here?
A guy I work with got his conditional offer from Aurora last Thurs.
Entry level. He is a former Army medic and has his EMT-B but no fire certs.
I applied for lateral, and have heard nothing. I spoke to the PIO at Aurora, and he said that your app will be on file for a year, and then you will have to re-apply. I'm sure if you were considered for this academy, we should have heard something. Oh well, heres to waiting for another camp.
As of last Friday, they had given out 5 conditional offers for entry-levels. I assume that the laterals would be getting offers simultaneously.
Now that they have gone through the first random 50 draw do they skip others that are in band A and go to band B?
Just wondering if anyone has heard anything recently. The last email I got which was a month or 2 ago said they were now taking 50 From Band B (which I am in), but I haven't heard anything since then. I was just wondering if anyone has heard anything else lately. Thanks!
Two days ago I got an email invitation to backgrounds. I am band B.
They are taking 50 to backgrounds. The 50 are from the remainder of Band A and starting into Band B.
Background packet is pretty intense and it is due June 7th. Academy to start October 2013. Anyone else invited to backgrounds? Anyone have solid numbers on how many they are planning on hiring this time around?
I just scheduled my WSA/JSA/Polygraph for October 23rd. Anyone else still in the running for this next class?
