    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

    mine also says I'm still

    "Eligible.....Eligible for Referral to Department"

    I just no longer see "(Current Step)" like before

    I'm probably just looking into it too much... I just wanted to see if anyone else no longer had (current step) on theirs also

    Wow those arent bad odds!! That is really exciting news! Thanks for the heads up. I think you are right about starting the process up once the new FY starts, makes the most sense.

    your timeline sounds about right. I called and got word that they are planning to have the next round of interviews sometime in September. they also said that "they will be conducting a lot of interviews" not sure if that means all of the 557 will get interviewed or just a majority of the list. also it sounds like they will be interviewing for other positions inside the dept. (fire inspectors, clerks, ect...) not sure if that's also what they mean by "a lot of interviews" either.....

    Default Interviews

    As far as they will be doing a lot of Interviews, they had a test for promotions, to LT. and to Capt. I have heard that the Chief wants to Interview all those promotions personally. I think that is what they mean by "A Lot of Interviews"

    As far as the list goes, have not heard if they will invite entire list or not, hopefully they screen the list for credentials, but knowing Oakland they will just invite everyone, and form a ranked after, we shall see, Good Luck

    Also I have heard of 3 people who were on this list that just got into SFFD and start on the 16th so you know there might even be more, good for us still going for Oakland.......

    Where did you hear that interviews will be in September? That would be great!

    Yesterday, I called HR, they said its out of their hands now. I then called fire personnel, which led to a number that is not fire personnel anymore lol. Finally, I called fire admin, who gave me no information other than to call Oaklands public safety hotline that has a prerecorded message, with no earth-shattering information other than to say that chief has "rule of the list."

    heard it from FD personnel back in July.
    yep, everything is out of city HR's hands now, for any info or updates we have to go to FD offices/personnel.

    lol I like that "no earth-shattering information..."
