    Nope, I've been checking my email like 5 times a day. Anyone know how many they'll be picking up or how long the list will be for?

    Its still with HR, they are a separate entity from the FD and there is no control of when they will finish the testing results. Good luck to all who tested.

    I also passed. I wonder how many people are typically on each tier?

    For example could be #100 on the list but multiple people are on that tier as well. 10, 20?

    Wonder what the passing score was? I'm on #141 so curious to what my chances are of getting an interview.

    I passed as well. I'm sure glad to not have to keep checking my email 50 times a day.

    Time to start preparing for the interview!

    Best of luck to everyone.

    Passed as well. So how important is this ranking compared to actual odds of being hired? If they hire, say, fifty guys... would it be (mostly) 1-50 on this list, or will the rankings be switched around after the interview?

    Anybody have any additional insight as to how our current rankings affect us throughout the rest of the process?

    Thanks.

    Was ranked #5 on the Trainee list, however did anyone else just receive an email stating that it would no longer be ranked?

    No, I recieved an E-Mail that more tests were added, because they were apparently left out of the initial list. I was warned that this may change my ranking, but it did not, the rank displayed was the same as my initial rank. This is the EMT list.

    Looking through previous threads and the PF&R website it appears the Trainee hires have always been pulled from an unranked pool of the highest scoring candidates and the EMT hires from a definitive ranked list. That being said, it was possibly in error that HR initally sent out a ranked score for the Trainee test when in fact it is an unranked pool of candidates. Either way I'm looking forward to the next step in the testing process good luck everyone!

    Did everyone get the email? Seems like when they contact you it'll be pretty short notice for interviews..
