    Default Joint Recruitment For So. Nevada

    Does anybody have any information on a joint recruitment for Southern Nevada? Saw something on the news about it last night. Was just curious as to if there was more information out there about it?

    I have heard of scores ranging from 80-89 if that helps much. I think the 84 will get you an interview.

    How reliable is the source?

    I've heard 1200 passed the written. That doesn't mean 1200 scored high enough just good enough to CPAT.

    Fairly reliable sources have heard it from multiple people. 800ish had apps turned in. 400ish still in after the apps. I guess people had issues with their applications or something.

    Oh wow. Didn't realize app and cpat deadlines would knock so many out. If that's true the 800 number isn't even bad odds. I've heard plans to hire a lot off this list. Anyone else hear anything?

    So, if Clark County is doing another academy off the old list does that mean only Vegas and North Las Vegas will be recruiting this go around?

    Honestly only the departments know what they need and can afford to hire. I do know that there will be a lot firefighters retiring and a round of captain promotions in the future. With the valley pulling permits on new homes means new stations. County will be hiring a new chief soon. There's a lot things pointing to this process as being positive. County only hired 1 academy from the old list and graduated 12-1 before that. 2 academy's in 3 years.

    I guess they didn't take the overall average of the scores like they said. What group is everyone in?

    Yep same here, group 2... I think if reading and math were pass fail and the average was from HR and Mechanical, then people's scores went down, but who knows. I've heard that less than 400 people are eligible at the moment.

    I wouldn't be surprised with however the sections were weighted. By eligible you mean pass the test at all?

    I am a medic and I got emailed for a background and an Oral. What does this mean? I was also in group 2. I have never heard of a department giving a background before the oral.

    Just received an email for Clark County Interview. I was Band C so I was not expecting an interview. Does anyone know if the written and oral will be weighted? If so what the breakdown is?
