    Some people passed but they didn't get a invite. So hopefully they will give out more information at orientation.

    Its a letter form the chief telling you what day you have orientation, a 20 page questionnaire (jobs, driving record, arrest records type questions), then it has a description of the PAT and how they will go forward with the PAT. It also has a checklist of the thing you need to bring to orientation. That was it. It was certified mail.

    Me too. It's getting real! I didn't expect them let us know this so early on. I'm still waiting on my packet.

    I've never been to orientation with the city but, I did have a friend tell me that they have done the drug test in the past. The packet basically talked about the PAT, and had the questionnaire.

    The city estimated 78 for the next class. Your rank or score has limited to do with you getting called back or not. They pick whoever has the best application. Experience, certifications, score, etc. On orientation expect to fill out papers, learn about the PAT, and take a drug test. And if you do drugs i hope you fail the test and can't get the drugs out of your system by then. If you can barely pass the PAT to get hired you won't pass it in full gear so get in shape. This is the best department going through a huge turn over in the upcoming years. Tons of opportunity and promotions. I haven't been on long but i know that everyone i work with loves coming to work and respects the tradition and pride of the City of Miami. Please don't bother if your the firefighter who just wants 48 hours off and is lazy, you will be left behind. I wish the best of luck to all who are attending orientation. Seize the opportunity this is looking like the end of the major hiring for the city.

    Nicely said michaelsm13. Do you think experienced will have a major role in to getting hired? Will they invite everybody to orentation that passed the written exam?

    If you got invited to orientation you will take the pat and if u pass the pat u will get invited to the interview. Atleast that's how it has been in the past
