    2 tone:
    I read that they are opening up two new stations soon (one is being relocated). I'm not too familiar Hall County other than what I've read on the web. What do you know about this department?

    Anyone going through this process? It will be a very short process from the tentative timeline.

    I haven't heard anything. I live in Hall County so I was hoping.

    Last opening my roommate who is less qualified and has a worse record made it all the way to interview and I was never called after the app. Not sure what you get points for in Hall County.

    You aren't the only one scratching your head. I have some experience and certs and didn't even get a call. Hall has had issues with retention so maybe they are hesitant about hiring someone with credentials in fear they might leave for a better department. Pure speculation on my part. Also, it is much smaller and rural than Gwinnett, Cobb, Fulton and Forsyth so maybe knowing someone comes into play.
