    No idea when the class will start. They are hiring 18 with 18 backups, probably interviewing 40 or so to determine the final order

    Also, if one does not make the original 18 what are the chances of making it if you are a back up? Thanks

    It depends on the year, if they run a second recruit school off that list your first up. In my recruit school in a local county, we had two drop out before we started so two were called up with little notice.

    Good to here maybe something going on after July.

    Hopefully the city will get things straight and hire a decent amount off this list would prefer not to have to test again in two to three years...

    Does anybody know in the past if they had another class within that 2 year time period that the eligibility list remains. Or what are the chances that they will have another class within the next 2 years? Thanks

    If vacancies exist they will have another class off this list within the two year period.

    You guys who have taken this test and may have had a interview, don't count on being hired. The City Hall has came up with a plan for raises of employees. It will affect you. They are taking the money which has been budgeted for positions, which includes vacancies, to use for the pay increases. This means that there will be a delay, how long no one knows, in recruit classes.


    Sorry, but this is the way Richmond City operates. This should tell you something, go elsewhere, as the City Administrators do not have the employee's on their minds or their interest either. It's been 5 years since a pay raise.


    See this morning's news for the local paper.

    Maybe the City will hire someone as the applicants are still practicing at the fire academy. Who know what the City of Richmond will do as they don't have their priorities in the right place. You fight a lof fire in the City but the bs it bad too.

    They usually interview two for one.

    Should be July 15th. They always begin a new class on a Monday.


    Be early about 6:00 to 6:30 AM, as at 7 AM you need to be in the line up. They do not like tardy folks.

    Remember it is Yes Sir/Ma'am or No Sir/Ma'am!! No other types of answers are not tolerated.

    Good point on the date I didn't bother to check a calendar.
    2 per position is about what I figured hopefully its that or more.

    Good luck to all those starting represent yourself well and work hard.

    And I'll cross my fingers for the next school.

    Since the current class of 21, began on July 15th and will probably will graduate in November, I wouldn't look for another class to begin until after the first of 2014. This also depends on how many vacancies they have toward the end of this year.


    pjl91, did you get an interview for this current class?

    The current class graduation is this evening. I would look for a class to begin in spring or by June at the latest.

    Heard a rumor that possible job offers going out sometime soon for the next school but don't know how accurate that is. Also another rumor that they were lining up things for the next school so maybe something soon hopefully.

    The last list from 09 had multiple schools ran off of it so let's hope it goes to 3 schools off this list.
