    Yes sir. It will be nice to put faces to the names since we've all been pen pals since March.

    CKW, I'm in the same boat as you are. I submitted my background info on the 23rd of June and have yet to get an email. I have absolutely zero to hide with regard to my background so I am really confused/anxious about this whole deal. I understand that there is no concrete information to be had but, does anybody have any thoughts about what may be going on?

    Good luck all of you! I actually used to live across the street from the Emory Guard Firehouse at the CDC until this summer. Heres some buffy videos of mine, they've got a nice truck!

    From what I know they get a few jobs a week and they've got nice rigs! I approve lol.

    Does anyone have any other updates today? I'm thinking about shooting an email to Mr. Davis since he said not to call, but I would hate to hurt my chances doing so. Unfortunately, patience isn't a virtue that I was blessed with.

    Negative, I called this morning considering its been 5 weeks but wasn't able to make contact. With the amount of people yet to hear back I have to believe they are still in the process of scheduling people though. It's just odd that emails went out on Thursday, then nothing on Friday. It would seem to make more sense for them to just send out all the emails at once.

    In the end it'll have been worth the wait, but like you said you would think that they would concentrate on getting the emails out and then move onto the next thing.

    I completely agree. Between the physical and fingerprinting it sounds like it will be a pretty full day so you have to figure they can only process about 10-20 or so a day. That being said, it's possible since the the three guys who were contacted are all scheduled for the same date and time (congrats guys!) that they are just going down the list and sending out
    Individual emails. Just theory here, trying to settle down the nerves a bit.

    I sent a email this am. Nothing returned yet. Last time I talked with hr they said they will hire 100 people this year and divide it into two classes summer and fall. My last name is a W so I think/hope I am at the end of the list. I let you guys know if he write backs.

    Well if it's anything like an army physical then it normally doesn't take that long. A physical for the military consist of a hearing test, blood draw, vision test and urine sample. The only reason that would make since to me on why they are taking their time on sending out emails is the availability at the doctors office, but again this is just a theory to alleviate my anxiety. lol

    That's a lot of physicals. Thanks for this information because I always thought that the 100 by the end of the year was just a rumor. I hope they're not going in alphabetical order b/c my last name starts with a W!

    I agree that doc availability would come into play. I hope that the case. I'll tell you what, I'd give up a whole hell of a lot to just get a time frame for notifications.

    PNW15 I agree the wait sucks. What's your last name begin with?

    I don't know where the overall process stands. I imagine I'll find out some news at HQ on Monday. 100 firefighters was more than a rumor. I believe its what was in the budget and overall the beginning of a commtiment to public safety to hire a few hundred more over the next few years. Police are doing mass hirings as well.
