    Typically they hire two classes a year so figure on avergae 30-32 people a year get hired.

    If they want to bring you in for a background interview you will receive notice via phone. After that you wait for another call for a poly appt. and than the same for the next steps in the process. Interviews started Tuesday and look to be running until the end of June so I'm not sure if they have called all prospective candidates yet as the rumor mill has had it saying both yes and no. I would assume no simply because the final CPAT takers paperwork wasn't due until the Friday before the Monday they started making calls but you never know for sure. I've heard the first class is to start early July but again that's just what's been floating around. Good luck everyone, it's a very tough dept. to get hired for but also a great dept to spend a career working for if you do.

    I know one of the firefighters on CFD and when he began his final interview was in the beginning of November, and the class began at the end of the month. he seemed to think that the class would begin in the fall, but I don't believe he had any evidence to support that other than his own experience on the department.

    That time line sounds about right for when the second recruit class usually begins.

    I haven't heard anything yet either but still have my fingers crossed. This is my second time applying and this is as far as I made it the first time. I did better on the CPAT this time and pray they see that but if not I will be back next year and will continue to try until I am on CFD. The CFD is an extremely tough dept to get on however I cant imagine anywhere else I'd rather spend a career.

    Perhaps, but if they are doing interviews through July (unless they mean both sets of interviews and the polygraph) then an early July start would be unlikely

    Another round of phone calls went out yesterday. I know a handful of guys who were called to go in next week for their background interviews.
    Good luck everyone. Looks like the calls are still ongoing.

    They are still screening applications and calling people as of today. They go through the end of the month.

    Haven't seen anything posted to this thread in awhile. I know there has been a lot of activity going on in the past weeks with background interviews and polygraphs. Just wondering if anybody has any updates on what's going on?

    As far as I know they are still running backgrounds and poly's for at least another week. I had a background last week but haven't heard anything else so I am figuring I must have blown my interview since most other guys I know who had theirs and were called back were contact between 1 and 4 days to return for a poly. I guess I will be back in January to take the written and start the process all over again.

    I had my background interview two weeks ago. I have not been contacted yet to return for a poly however I'm staying optimistic that I will get the call. If not I'll see you guys again at the next written test.
