    Would they have another round of interviews you think? Or just use the same list from the last round of interviews?

    I think there is a second interview but I think you get that when they decide to hire you. Not sure though hopefully someone more knowledgable will chime in.

    What's your rank from the ranking interview pjl91?

    Wow 44 that sounds pretty good man I was interviewed once and placed 7x, but unfortunately I guess I don't interview so well. Good luck though sounds like you have a good change at the next probie school hope I won't be to far behind.

    Maybe this will help you guys. I heard this week that a delay is ongoing for another class.

    It takes about three months from the beginning of the hiring process, various hoops and hurdles to the medical exam, interview and to the start of the class.

    Having said that 'if' they began this process, let say in March, it would be June before the class forms and starts training. Right now there isn't a start time for the process.

    There is nothing wrong in making contact with those folks in the FD and HR that can give you a better timeline, if they will.

    If I hear or attained any thing I will put it in here.

    Hang in there. If you see any other jobs being offered in the area, I think I would put an application it and try to get on their list as well.

    Thanks for the info Capt. Good stuff to know.

    Hopefully they will get the ball moving soon. I don't mind waiting but hate to think the list could expire before getting the call and having to test again....

    I sure do hope you prospective recruits are doing your homework about the RFD. I also really hope this is really REALLY where you want to work. I've said it before and I will say it again. If you are currently not working for a paid department than sure its great to get hired, BUT if your currently employed with a career fire department I would do some more research on the morale, leadership, and direction of this department.

    Most of the types our "leadership" is looking for aren't you guys and gals that are on this website. There looking for people who don't even know what Firehouse.com even is.

    Any one hearing anything from Richmond?

    I know they have about 25 vacancies, but wouldn't think they would hire for all, but they may.

    You never know what they are going to do.

    Congratulations to the 24 who will begin recruit training on June 30th. Be sure all 24 recruit members are there to graduate just before Christmas. Listen to what your instructors say.

    If you have previous experience, that will help you and those who doesn't. Remember it makes no difference to the instructors if you have been a boat load of certificates in firefighting courses, you are going to learn firefighting the Richmond way!


    DO NOT BE LATE - for ANYTHING!!!

    Well, you new life began this morning. You have several months to get this new job down and graduate before Christmas!

    You look around and see how many are in the class and it is up to all of you to make sure that the same folks this morning that reported for training is there on graduation day. Your help and assistance will help each of the new members as well as the instructors.

    You will be given all the information and toll to successfully graduate and begin your new career.

    Remember this, there is no excuse for running out of gas in your car coming to work or being late at all!!


    God luck to all of you.

    Training is going well and the class seems to be taking to the information quickly.
