    Default Philadelphia EMT Hiring 2014

    So now that the application is closed does anybody have any idea how the hiring process is going to go? Its not like there was a test or anything. Will it be interview based or random number generated? How may applicants do you think there are?

    it will take time..always does with the city...applicants still have until may 25th to get all their supporting documents in...from there it will take even more time...the police move quick and even they aren't fast in terms of hiring and processing..seems the PFD is even slower...It took them 3 months just to process testing scores...in all fairness i'm not even sure how many took the firefighter exam but 3 months seems a bit long.

    Well the feeling I got was that this was going to be quicker since this was something they were pushing for. I'm just curious what the process is. I don't see why everything has to be such a secret all the time.

    No. My status hasn't changed in that the entire application vanished. I emailed Marcus on Friday and left a message on his VM this morning. If I don't hear back by ebd of tomorrow I'll go in person on Wednesday. I have my rank email so I'm trying not to be to worried about things. We'll see.

    Eligable for hire, by the way. I'm curious when the hiring process is going to start now.

    hey guys, I'm a little confused. Is the eligibility number they gave in the emails your rank? IE they start from the top and work down?

    Yeah. Thats your number. So if they are hiring 150 EMTs (which is the rumor and seems to make sense) and your number is betwee 1-150 you will get an interview. They usually send out more letters (double?)though, because not everyone makes it. Reasons for that could be drug tests, past debts, etc.

    Anybody here anything? Rumor was floating around about Emt's in July and FF's in the fall? Something about the city approved the budget?

    Hey fellas,

    Here is the Philadelphia Fire Department Fiscal Year 2015 Budget Testimony
    http://phlcouncil.com/wp-content/upl...reFY15Test.pdf
    If you look at page 4 you will see they anticipate that approximately 100 EMT's will be hired in the next 12 months. Good luck to all of you

    Has anybody called the pfd to determine if and when the Emt classes are starting? Or any news?

    Well if you look at the city's job postings they have departmental positions available for Fire Paramedic Captain & Lieutenant and those applications close 7/11. I'm guessing that might have something to do with the restructuring and if thats the case they probably would take care of that first before contacting us about interviews. It would be nice to have some sort of ballpark timeline but I can't imagine it will be much longer.

    I called pfd human resources and they said they are trying to establish a orientation date.. Once they do letters will be sent out.. No time line on the date though.

    Not yet. I can't imagine we will until next month. The wait is making me anxious for sure.
