    Default Delay

    Rumor is the delay has been dealt with. Also heard the language with the most weight is Chinese. I would say within two weeks we should hear back I would think......good luck

    What source is this rumor from? And does "most weight is Chinese" means higher priority and consideration?

    Source is people within the department, as far as Chinese that is the language they need the most, priority over say someone who speaks Spanish

    Same. Curious as to what the cutoff was in order to pass the interview, especially since the list isn't ranked.

    I received the same email. Congrats to all that passed!! This means we are one step closer! I heard passing score for the interviews was 70%. I don'think the process will take that long, before the interviews the City of Oakland was prompt with notifying people about the next step in the process. Good luck to everyone!

    FYI... I tried to update my file with another Cert I received last week and this is the response I received:

    "Thank you for your inquiry. The Oakland Fire department is now in possession of the unranked, alpha sorted hiring list for Firefighter Trainee and it is at their discretion as to when they will schedule departmental interviews. Those candidates selected to participate in the departmental interviews (also known as Chief Orals) should update any certifications and/or resumes at that time. DHRM will no longer accept these documents. The fire academy tentative date(s), number of candidates to attend the academy, and the number of vacancies to be filled will be decided by OFD.

    After successfully completing the academy, participants become full-time firefighters (see job specification with salary information on our website www.oaklandnet.com )

    Due to the high volume of participants, we will not be able to provide individual feedback from your oral interview. Oral interview “scores” are not available to candidates; however a public copy of the hiring list is located at the DHRM front counter for viewing.

    Regards,"

    Yes that is the rumor as of now for the next academy, as far as dept interviews maybe Aug/Sept leaving time for B/G's, phyc, med etc before the Jan start date. Also give them time to appoint new instructors etc
