    It looks like they are only accepting laterals from those who are currently working in snohomish county. Hopefully there will be some entry level spots left to fill. Also, if they are keeping two entry level lists (veteran/civilian), could there conceivably be duplicate rankings? I.e. if I'm #5 on one list is there also a #5 on the other list? I know any answer will be speculation but I cant figure out how their whole process works.

    I am currently on the civilian list, from what I have been told there are duplicate rankings. I am only a few spots lower than you, and i was told that lets say they are hiring 10 new hires, it would be 5 from the veteran and 5 from the civilian. Don't quote me on that, but that is what I was able to gather from the HR department.

    A friend of mine is good pals with a higher up guy there. Word is they have 5 spots reserved in the August state academy and the rest of their openings (12-14) are being filled with laterals.

    Any idea if the laterals being hired will come off the initial list and or will anyone with fire certs and experience will be considered for the 12-14 positions?

    As far as I understand they will come from the list of laterals they already have and possibly the additional laterals from Snohomish county they just opened up to

    They only have 5 spots in August and that academy is full, so they can't add anymore for that even if they wanted. I imagine those 5 would be 2 civ and 3 military, but that's entirely conjecture

    Are you a lateral also or just a veteran?

    If I recall correctly they took all scores over either 70 or 75.

    Asst. Ops Chief and MPD interview done. They mixed some number of vets with the Snohomish laterals and interviewed 15 for 12 spots. They said conditionals next week and start Aug 18. Good luck to all. Either way, if you watch the Commissioner's meetings, this department is growing. I think it's a good list to be on!
