    I also received an invitation for the same week. They seem to be moving pretty fast, I wonder how many they're taking to oral.

    I also received an email for an interview next Monday. Anyone have an idea as to how many they are looking to hire?

    Interviews went well. Should hear back within 4 weeks. They turned quite a few people away from the interviews due to CPAT. Mostly due to not having a CPAT card issued as of September 2012 and one was due to obtaining the CPAT out of state.

    Departmental interview according to the job announcement. After that, it's a background, medical, psych, etc.

    Not totally sure. Could be a "Chiefs" interview or it may be Captains and BC's, etc. I would imagine it would be more like typical fire interviews as opposed to more general community based questions we got in the first oral board. I would prepare as you would and should have prepared for the first.

    I heard someone mention around 400. But, to be honest I have no idea and that number came from another candidate in the waiting room.

    Someone at the interviews said that there were 1000 people scheduled everyday/ Monday-Friday. But a lot of people did not have DMV printout or valid CPAT so they could not interview

    Is the 1000 a typo? I don't know that they even tested 5K to begin with. I don't know who's info. is correct, but by looking at how many they had scheduled to go at my time around 100 a day seems way more likely.

    No typo, just what I heard. I have no idea if it is the truth, but just thought I would mention it. Either way, best of luck to everyone!

    No real clue. Like brianpalazzo, I'm still waiting on results from the oral board. But, if you want a guess, I'd say summer/fall??

    I updated my file with some new certs and inquired as to when we should receive the results. Was told we should hear back the week of April 15th (next week).
