    Interviews were conducted this week (5.6-5.9). Although now it's too late, check your spam folder. All my communication coming from SJFD got routed there for some reason (I use gmail).

    Hope you were able to figure it out ahead of time!

    SJFD is a great department!!! Good luck to both of you!!! I am not a member of the department, but I have a lot of contacts, so if you have any questions, want to do a ride-along, or anything feel free to PM me. SJFD is my dream department, so I'm more than willing to help anyone who wants to work for them.

    I am so mad because I never thought to check my spam folder thru gmail, and sure enough there it was a email saying I was invited to a interview! I can't believe that it happed to me, I was looking forward to working at that department I know guys there and everything. Hopefully they will hire again. now I know to look in my spam folder next time.

    If it makes anyone feel better, I heard the august academy will be all medics. Makes sense as a lot of people have been promoted lately and apparently they're short in that area. Let's all hope they don't go to 3 FF per truck!

    I'm only an EMT as of right now. Fingers crossed they have a mixed EMT/Medic academy sometime early 2015.

    Thanks for posting, that email went to my spam as well. Added the two emails suggested to my contacts. Hopefully should hear some news by early June.

    I received a letter in the mail today saying that they will have more interviews in the next few months, and that I will have a chance to register for an oral board then.

    I called their HR dept about a week ago. In total they're going to interview 1,100 people and the lady acknowledged the first round was botched due to the spam email situation. She mentioned the fall as the next round of interviews.

    They took 100 people to backgrounds after the first round of interviews. I asked if there would be a published list to see where I ranked. Apparently the list is dynamic and SJFD will hire based on what needs the department has at that time. The 100 currently in backgrounds are primarily medics and bilingual. Say at the time of the next academy the department needs candidates who have their Class B license, then they'll shift the list accordingly.

    That's all I know at this time, hope it helps.

    When did you schedule your interview enumclaw2006 I was thinking I should go for sometime in August to prepare more. I wonder when the next academy is since we missed August one?

    I'm in backgrounds from the first round of interviews. Knocked out the poly a couple weeks back. We're not going to know anything until the end of this month.

    Don't think there will be a huge rush to process the second round super quickly just yet.

    First round took approximately 50 medics and 50 EMTs to backgrounds. Seems like a fair amount of bilingual people. (Not including myself)

    The HR lady works out at my gym and told me approximately 941 people will be interviewed total.
