    They have a list that they will go off of and use it as needed to replace those who fail the background and/or physical.

    Hey Jay, I had a quick question about this current selection process Long Beach is doing. I unfortunately was not selected to move forward back when they sent out there invites for the first round interviews. Since you have a lot of knowledge and insight on this process, what came into play and what made long beach select the canidates that they did to move forward. I am curious because I myself have an excellent recruit resume, (AS degree, 1 1/2 years of reserve firefighter experience, 3 years of emt experience, currently enrolled in paramedic school, socal native, 21 yrs old, 6;30 biddle time etc). I just felt like I was passed up when I know individuals who dont have anywhere near the experience I do. Soo did they select laterals only? paramedics only? or what happened? Was it a random lottery system?

    Default Selection

    I haven't a clue as to why someone was or wasn't picked. Long Beach Fire and the Chiefs who are making the decisions are the only ones who know. Each city when they throw a test have their own parameters for selection and Long Beach is no different. Looks like to me you have "The Stamps" (experience) but failed is some aspect they were looking for.

    Does anyone have any insight as to how we will be ranked if one makes it through the chiefs oral?

    No ranking other than those who will be asked to take physicals......as they fail at the physical one will be added to take his/her place. It could be any of the finalists. Good luck.

    So after the chief interview a non ranked list is made? Then those individuals are sent to take their physical/medical?

    That's correct + or - a few.........That's what I've been told but that was a few weeks ago.
    dtower......the final list will be about 75 with a select amount being offered positions with them taking their physicals. If any fail another will be picked off of the list. Who I have no clue and only the Chief knows.

    Thanks for the great info Jay.

    If a candidate is on that last list of 75 will scores from the previous oral boards be tallied to have a ranking? Or like you said "only the chief knows" will the candidates be cherry picked/randomly chosen?

    There will be no ranking as I know it. It will be about 75 on a list and only the Chief knows how they are picked. "Cherry Picking" is a harsh word...it's more like "Best Suited" for the job. Who they pick for the initial class and failures from the physicals only "The Chief" knows......I'm sure with the Chiefs making the selections (I personally know them all)they'll have a great selection to work with in Drill School. Good Luck....
