    Actually, it will be located near Harrowgate Road and Jefferson Davis highway, north of the City of Colonial Heights. There are long-range plans for an additional station(s) in the area that you mention, but the more sparse population of that area doesn't make it as high of a priority.

    the 2 current southern stations are 12(engine/truck) and 8(engine/medic), there are 2 more stations the farther west you go.

    The master plans call for the building of 6-9 additional stations in the next 10 years. Those of you that do get hired will have a stable place to work and won't have to worry about layoffs.

    Ground breaking of station 21 is supposed to start this month, with the station up and running by 2015.

    it will be a little over a month after the background check that they normally call with a job offer. doesn't hurt to call/email to check in

    I gave a call to my BI a week ago to see where I was in the process, haven't heard a thing. I'm assuming this is good, very good?

    When they called me to schedule BI it was on a Friday...Hope today will be the day! Then again HR told me not to expect anything until the week of the 12th. I agree no news is good news but good news would be fantastic news

    I remember the BI saying they would call only if they needed more information based on your answer or in this case one of your refrence a was not responding or a bad email.

    Hey y'all, just now getting into this forum. Had some trouble getting the website to confirm my account. Congrats to you all for making it this far in the process. I appreciate seeing y'all's feedback. Have all of your job references been contacted yet? I'm from Richmond by the way.
