Austin Fire Department Hiring Process Canned!
If you haven't found out already, today the AFD's Action Fire Chief, Jim Evans, notified all applicants that the hiring process has been terminated. For the full read click here.
As one of those applicants, I am extremely disappointed. While I was very unimpressed by the readiness and organization of the overall hiring process, I never saw this one coming. However I can imagine the kind of pressure Jim Evans must be experiencing, and this action was a last resort.
Has anyone seen this type of action happen before? And if you're an applicant: how do you feel about having to start from Step One again?
As for me, I'll still be handing in my application to the AFD (again), but this time I'm going to look into other nearby cities.
