    Had mine on the 25th. Got a rejection letter in the mail on the 28th. It was my first interview for a firefighter position so I guess I can at least learn from the experience. Fingers crossed for Henrico

    Every interview I've had has been a learning experience keep your head up and keep going. Had mine on the 24th, went well. Anyone have any stats for the department like call volume for the year?

    No not yet. I thought they said we would hear at the end of the month. Anyone else hear when they would be getting a call for physical?

    Nothing here either. Hopefully something soon. Guess since no letter or email means that we have not been thrown out of this stage.

    Default Next step

    I emailed human resources and they got back to me within the hour. They are still doing background interviews. They hope to have all candidates back to HR and on to next step the week of Aug 12th.

    Well that's good news I did mine a while ago so I think I am still in the process. I was starting to get nervous. So just a medical exam and then job offers? This waiting is killing me.

    I hear you man...I did mine on July 16th when did you do yours? Would be cool if all of us commenting got in the recruit school! I wonder how many went through backgrounds.

    I did mine the week previous to yours. That would be pretty cool if all of us were in the academy. The investegator made it sound like there were not a lot of people left and also that if they found anything that they did not like you would be notified by HR. My guess if they found something they would have sent a thanks but no thanks letter and been done with you,not wait till the end of the process, kinda of like what they did after interviews.

    My investigator told me that they send more people to do background interviews than they are going to hire because some people get tossed out at that step. I guess they will be choosing among whoever passes the background to move on to the next step. They are hiring 12 I think I heard. Wonder if you will get the conditional offer at the physical or after. Would be my dream come true to land this job.

    Interesting I had heard from some OTJ guys that the number they heard was 15 to 20. They said that have a lot of guys that are up for retirement and also the talk of another station being built. So who knows. So I guess per your conversation we should start hearing something next week? Anyone else out there hear anything?

    Not just talk, it's going to happen. They've already started advertising for the construction contractor.

    Good luck to everyone who's waiting, I know the suspense has to be tough.

    Box and firewacker, is this station to cover the southwest part of the county that seems to not have a single station?
