    Default Chicago Fire Department Hiring 2014

    Does anyone have any information on the CFD running a testing process in 2014. I saw an article in Fire Engineering as well as the Cicago sun-times about one being run but they were both from November 2013.

    I read a few articles saying they were going to test this year, but I also read that people who took the test in 2006 are getting processed now. Only time will tell.

    Did they give preference for Chicago Police and Fire Training graduates and high school graduates from the Chicago Public School system in previous exams ?

    So how exactly is this preference for CPS graduates, academy graduates etc play into the ranking? As far as i understand it is Pass/ Fail for the written with ranking being done by social security numbers randomly? With that being said does everyone with preference automatically go to the front of the list regardless of where they would have been on the list? (This is how it has been done in citys like Boston) Im just curious because i know that there are pry a **** ton of CPS graduates that will be taking the test. Does anyone think hiring will go like this;


    Those that pass ranked;

    Veterans
    CPS graduates
    academy(?) graduates
    everyone else put in by rank.

    Thoughts????

    hopefully it's just a few points added to your score, and doesn't automatically move people ahead of you.
