    Has anyone received a phone call/email from HR? I called HR and they said they would be giving out phone calls till this Tuesday and they would be sending out emails after that.

    I did well on my interview panel this week and I'm scheduled for the Chief's interview next week.

    Any word dudefromtheburg?

    Is anyone here on the forum currently with Asheville FD? I'm curious how many candidates are moving on to the Chief's interviews.

    I also had a question about the schedule...I realize they do a modified version of the 24/48 schedule but I'm not positive what time they do shift change. Is the probationary period 6 months or 12 months after the academy? Sorry for all the questions, but I'm just trying to figure out the day to day details after the academy and plan logistics since we just had a baby.

    Mirth9, I had my panel interview yesterday. Did they inform you that you were moving on to the chiefs interview in person? Or did you get a phone call? I asked afterwards and was told candidates that were moving on would receive a phone call and those who were not would get an email.

    I waited a few minutes after the interview and they told me in person which was kinda surprising. Did you get any word yet?

    I wouldn't say that. There's still more than 75 applicants that went to the Chief's interview so it's far from being "in the bag". I'm not sure how I felt about the last interview, it was fairly quick and I left wondering if I said anything that would make me stand out from the other candidates. I suppose I shouldn't worry for now, they said I'll hear something by the end of next week.

    its not what you say, its how you say it. so you could have similar stories as long as you sound more enthusiastic and passionate that will make you stand out.

    HR sent out emails saying that the City is still trying to determine how many positions they're going to hire based on the budget. They are hoping to have it all figured out by the end of this week.

    Just to update the thread, phone calls and job offers were going around today. Not sure how many or any other details. Best of luck to the rest of you still in the process.

    Yes, they offered me a position and of course I accepted it. I'll go in to take care of paperwork, uniform fitting and the med/phys exam this next week.

    Anyone else on here get the green light?
