    Has anyone received any emails in the past month or so? i think the last set of emails they sent was in late January (3 emails in like 10 mins) and heard that backgrounds will start up again and emails should be going out for that soon...

    There are a couple rumors floating around about a new class starting in july or august.

    I think that was the last email they sent out and apparently not everyone on the remaining eligible list received that email. I think they are being more selective this time. Instead of notifying everyone (Like last time), they've notified just the ones they more than likely will offer. Just something i have heard rumored around by a couple different people this past week. I don't know how much stock i put into that but....I'll just leave it at that.

    Heard the class will start something like 2 weeks or so after this current class ends and will be big. Somewhere between 50-65.

    Also, just heard that they might open up the application process again in July 2013 for a January 2014 class. This shouldn't have any impact on anyone currently on the eligible list unless you don't get selected for the next (July/August 2013) class. Either way people left on the eligible list should know by then if they have a offer or not and know if they will need to apply or not.

    last piece of info i heard was that they would be starting to send out emails to get the background checks started within the next week or so. That was a week and a half ago, so maybe someone will hear something by the end of this week or next. I haven't heard of anyone receiving an email since January though.

    Final thing I've heard not directly related to hiring was that soon (by end of June) A LOT of career guys are going to be putting in for retirement. This could be why there is such a huge hiring push going on right now....

    All of this info is just stuff I've heard from UNOFFICIAL (non-hiring position) people. No one in the hiring department has told me any of this. Its just stuff i hear from different current firefighters (Career and Volunteer) in Montgomery so take everything with a grain of salt.

    Interesting news. I had all but written this off until I received a call this morning to interview. I already caught on with a smaller Dept. in Va, but I'm strongly considering getting involved in the process again. Anyone have specifics for MCFR? 24/48? Run ALS out of every house? Residency requirements?

    I remember being impressed with their presentation, and I took some notes on them but I don't have access to them at the moment...and may not have time to review before my interview on Monday.

    24/48 with a kelly day. ALS in every house, usually running 4 to an engine with ALS on board. Not sure of residency, but when I went through the academy there were a ton of guys from PA in my class

    I had an interview last year before accepting a position with a smaller Department in VA. I didn't really intend to pursue it, and never replied to the emails asking me to take myself out of the process if I wasn't interested. I believe I got an 82? on my first go-round. I did well on the tests, although my interpersonal score was ridiculously low.

    I decided to take myself out this time simply because the pay isn't significantly more than what I'm making now, and I would have to commute over 2.5 hours. If it were 24/72 I'd be all over it. I wish I could do it, but logistically it doesn't make sense. Besides, I've already jumped ship on one department in my short career...not sure I want to make it a habit.

    The guys I talked to on the phone sounded VERY motivated to get a class together...it sucks turning down an offer from a department better than the one you're currently at.

    Good luck to everyone going for it....seemed like a good place to work.

    I took myself out of the process, but thanks anyway.

    has anyone heard anything regarding offers? I had my meeting with the background investigator a few weeks ago but haven't heard anything since.

    I hope to hear something by early/mid May for an offer. Just wondering if anyone else has received or know of other people getting one yet.

    Default Background Investigation

    Has anyone received any COE's yet?? I was told by my investigator that my background investigation looked good and that was submitted three weeks ago today. Have not heard anything further aside from some emails stated offers would be going out soon.

    For any guys going through the process have you looked into living situations down in Rockville? I had heard that often times recruits will grab a place close to the academy to circumvent excessive travel times every morning.

    Good luck to anyone else out there going through the process.

    First, Congratulations! Second, Im currently waiting to hear from Montgomery. I met and spoke with an investigator a few weeks ago. I was just wondering how sure are you that if you spoke with an investigator you should be getting a offer soon? I'm checking my emails every 30 seconds haha

    RIGHT FROM MCFRS EMAIL THEY SENT EVERYONE.....

    [You must print and fill out the entire background packet, checklist, forms and then bring everything with you on the day of your exam. The packet requires a lot of information (names of relatives, contact info, references etc.) Do not wait until the last minute to complete the packet.

    You must bring the completed packet, forms and required documentation with you to the exam. You will not be permitted to take the exam without the background packet.

    The documentation should be neatly organized and held together by only a clip. Do not place it in a folder, binder or envelop.

    Make a copy of your completed packet for your reference.]


    I didn't see anything about mailing anything in...
    To the men who were there that day, my utmost respect.
