    Thanks for the info 5150. Since they are conditional offers, we are still alive. Backgrounds, medical and poly is a huge hurdle and they could be going down the list as they drop people that don't pass. I use to hear a general rule (with California depts) is that 30-40% typically don't pass backgrounds/poly.

    Also, if 14 was the number, that's also encouraging as the SAFER funding OFD received was for more than 14 new hires. Thus, maybe this was just the first group and/or maybe the first academy is 14-ish and the other 14-ish will be the second academy right after.

    To quote 5150: "we shall see"

    This is just speculation, but I'm guessing they may have chosen to have a smaller academy first to expedite bg checks/psych exams so they could meet the goal of having an academy ready by January.

    I wonder if OFD offered more conditional offers or if they are just hiring the 14?

    Like most of you, just received this:

    Thank you for your interest in the Firefighter Trainee position with the Oakland Fire Department. Over five hundred candidates were offered Chief's interviews. If you did not receive a conditional offer of employment, your name is not among those selected to advance in this selection process. Your name will remain on the eligibility list for a minimum of one (1) year.

    We hope that this outcome does not discourage you from pursuing future employment opportunities with the City of Oakland. You may access our current openings by clicking on jobs at www.oaklandnet.com; call our public safety hotline at (510) 238-6465; call our general hotline at (510) 238-3111; or you may visit the Department of Human Resources Management in downtown Oakland at 150 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, 2nd Floor.

    We wish you success in your employment endeavors.

    Please do not reply to this email. Replies to this message are routed to an unmonitored mailbox.

    Sincerely,
    Oakland Fire Department

    A lot if the 14 were connected to OFD in some way, ride along program, OFD paramedic program, fire prevention, etc...

    So can't really be surprised. Remember they are gonna do a second academy later in 2014 so you all still have a outside shot, good luck

    Don't believe Oakland shows the list but think you can send a self addressed envelope and request to know your ranking on the eligibility list to OFD HR and they will send you your ranking.
    Maybe call and ask them if this is true, remember seeing it on their website.
