    I go hope it is 4 classes for 160 but I am hearing that it is more so like 2 classes in one year. Then scrap the list and do another test for 4 classes

    Yes, ocean i hope for that to stand true. I don't understand how a process could continue on amidst the controversy. but o well I guess sit back and wait for the county !

    Yea well I hope the city does hire the 200 or so they need and I do hope the county goes through the entire 940 people on their list so that everyone has a chance.

    I spoke to a HR testing/validation supervisor for the county last week and yes she still remains adamant that they WILL exhaust the list based on background/psych eliminations alone, as for the city my friend who works there stated a memo was sent to all fire employees forecasting the future of the dept and 200 new hires is on the agenda over the next couple years.
    So keep hope alive my brother !

    So the city clearly stated they're calling back for orientation based on the test scores, but they're calling people with random numbers and no one who's done well anyone got any info?

    They clearly stated in the page were the results are that they're calling back from highest to lowest but I've even heard of people in the 160s getting called back an a friend of mine has a 95 nothing.

    That same friend called the city and was told they were calling people with experience, he has 3 years on a volunteer department works as a medic with me and is an ACLS instructer but they told him he's not getting a call, yet another friend of mine ranked 87 got a call Nd he has zero experience

    I think they're calling based on prior work experience as well. Who knows though. I know guys ranked in 20's 30's and 60's who did not get called.

    Also I don't believe there is any amount of studying you can do to pass this test. I believe its mainly testing your listening skills, and ability to take good notes. Good luck to everyone.

    Whoever got called for orientation that doesn't have any experience knows somebody in the dept and has connections. All of a sudden, now they require experience and are not looking at the scores.

    Geez I have never seen so much twist and turns for a process. It's ridiculous. And you guys really think they aren't looking for rank but more of work experience ? Man, if that's the I think I should gotten a call and text or something. I've been on for 5yrs on my dept n have multiple certs and still got no ring... How sure are you guys they want experience oppose rank ?

    Very reliable source told me experience nor rank had much to do with this, they had sent out orientation letters prior to the test being corrected a d instead of fixing the problem it was kept as is, we were suppose to be called back based on rank, that's how they always do it, so I'm guessing they'll get it fixed for the second class or so I hope

    My opinion city of Miami still one of, if not the best fire department, just my opinion no matter how they chose those that got the call all we can do is sit and wait I still think they'll hire atleast three more classes from this list

    I called headquarters and I spoke to a captain and he said they were getting ppl with experience, also that they're not looking at the scores or rank. I scored a 90 and was ranked 78 but have no work experience. They're not calling based on score or rank, they're just bouncing around.

    Eban9087- I completely feel you on that. Which this is why I wanna make the move now the city runs EVERYTHING which is dope And JCB343 so the call in order of rank is caca huh ! Go figure. If this is in fact true than I spoke everybody who passed has a chance. So why even rank us, random number should have been given.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure they are. But you never know, maybe some ppl wont pass the PAT, backgrounds, etc. so the dept would have to contact others. In addition, the captain said they want to hire 35 for the September class and another 40 for the March class using this current list.
