    Copy, thank you sir! I talked to Civil Service and they said list is good til Nov 25 2014 and there is not a ranking. I'm confused how they select us if we don't have a "rank". She could not answer if all the guys/girls were selected or if each academy will be notified prior to starting to do background etc.

    I've been told e-mails have gone out for those selected to do Psyc and backgrounds for the first class. As I've said before anyone on the final list can be selected as they are not in any order and how they are selected only the Chief knows. Good luck....

    Quick Questions for clarification:

    AzAdAm: "I talked to Civil Service and they said list is good til Nov 25 2014..."

    2014? Is that a typo? Did you mean 2015 or is it 2014 with the option to extend to 2015? I vaguely remember this list was going to be used for 2-3 academies (maybe 4) and into end of 2015.

    JayDudley: "... anyone on the final list can be selected as they are not in any order and how they are selected only the Chief knows."

    "final list" meaning those (the 200-250) that went to Chief and received a passing score from last Chief interview?

    Lastly, and maybe JayDudley knows the answer to this, what are the average/percentage of those that typically fail backgrounds and/or Psyc?

    THANKS!

    Nope they said 2014, with an option to extend. Was there 3 separate emails sent out or just the "congrats" and the "your name will be put on list for consideration for any future hiring". Since there is no "ranking" do we reinterview for position each academy?

    In the past the list was always good for one year...and they have always extended the list for one year. What they do in this case I do not know but if I were a betting man I'd say list is good for two years. I also wouldn't plan on a re-interview either. Best of luck to all.

    Is anyone else confused about what's going on? List ..... no list.....everyone notified.....only 24 notified.....the email sent out the other day about people calling and that 24 were given conditionals for summer drill school and there is a list but its not for public. I've heard different responses from all areas.

    Personally I am curious where at on list I am but chances are I'll never know unless I get that job offer haha .

    I'll try to make it so you'll somewhat understand. There's a list that Long Beach Fire will work off of. Let's say there's 75 on this list.......they will send out e-mails to those who will go to backgrounds and psyc tests. As those who are picked fail any of those tests another candidate will be picked for that spot. Who that will be only the Chief knows as all are equal. When they get enough qualified then 24 will be offered positions and sent to physicals.....if anyone fails their physical another candidate will be plugged into that open spot. When they get 24 who have passed all three tests then and only then will they have a class to run through a drill school. I hope this makes it as clear as mud........good luck

    I can say that that's how they have done it in the past and how it was explained to me recently by a Chief.

    For those who have been patiently waiting for Long Beach to have a drill class......The Fire Chief says a class will begin in September. The backgrounds have been slow and there "IS" light and the end of the tunnel. Good Luck to all who will be beginning their new careers with Long Beach Fire.
