    hiring from the list will be done without taking race into account, said Larry Langford, a Fire Department spokesman.

    Passing candidates will now be randomly ranked. Those rankings will determine when a candidate will be called up for interviews, background checks, agility testing and training. Thus, a candidate who got a perfect score on the written test could flunk out in any of the other four categories, while someone who got only a passing grade on the written test could perform exceptionally well in all the other areas.

    thats not speculation(both quotes in sun times)

    so does that mean we have already been "randomly ranked" by the letter we were sent, or does that mean they will be randomly picking numbers now?

    Default Assigned numbers

    From what I have garnered from on-duty CFD staff, your randomly assigned number is the number in which you will be called. The CFD is attempting to keep the selection process random yet streamlined; thus, randomly randomizing the random numbers would NOT be at ALL a streamlined approach.

    Default SS# and the Random Selection Process

    My Social Security # ends in 9 and I ranked 177 out of 17,063. Theory blown.

    I'm pretty sure they are going with your assigned number starting at 1, I've also heard that they expect to go through close to 1000 applicants to fill out each class (that is call about 1000 applicants and pick 150 or so to fill the class, not 1000 apps per class), but who knows.

    Come on outlet you got to be kiddin me! Your tellin me they will go through 1000 people for 150. Listen it took the CFD years to get through 1800 well qualified apps with the last test. Anyone 1000 up will wait a couple years or have to retest when the list is up in 3 years. The paper said about 300 hires a year.

    The really sad part is that it's probably true. The only saving grace in this is maybe he wont pass the physical or interview. If he does go to the academy hopefully he brings his attitude with him and they flush his ***. It's people like you Anthony think you need things handed to you that screw everything up. This isn't some job picking up the trash for example, you screw up here or have that attitude you will end up getting yourself, your crew or civilians killed. Perhaps you should rethink your position. If someone like you got placed on my truck I would make SURE you wouldn't last. I don't want someone like you backing me up.

    I hope you all know that the random number you have is only a random number , its not a ranking on a list, it has nothing to do with how good you did or anything. Those numbers will be used to call people to take the physical test. IE: Numbers 1 to 6000 please report on such and such day to take the physical agility test @ this time, etc.. etc.. etc... The combonation of your written and physical will then rank you on a list. Everyone is flipping out just cus someone else mite be taking the physical before you, who cares if someone potentionaly scored less then you on a written and is taking the phsysical before you, it means nothing. Everyone who passed the written got a 100% (it is pass fail) the physical exam will weed people out and then rank the best candidate. Not sure why everyone is getting upset.

    Cool

    I thought, I had everything figured out. I'm sorry I guess I was wrong. Don't blame me for trying.

    You really believe the city is going to spend money to bring in 6000 people to take another test, then make another list. Come on, where do you live? I dont need an insider to know that will not happen. They will call say the first 300(maybe a 1000 who knows) people,test them and make an elgibility list.

    The city has never made an eligibility list. No person who took the test will ever know where they stand relative to another applicant. They choose a random method, call the appropriate numbers for instance, 1-200. you take a physical agility, background, medical, jump thru some paper work hoops, and then you are hired. There is no such thing as you are #1, beeballs is #2, and anthony t is #3, based on cumulative scores, or any such thing. The current "random" method is the same that they used for the 95 test, and the 85 test. The only difference is that this time all passing applicants fall into one group. In 95, applicants scoring above 89 were deemed well qualified and hired first. If I remember correctly this accounted for about 2000 people, and took about 5 years to get through. There are still plenty of people who passed the 95 test and still never got hired. Best of luck to everyone putting in the effort, but hedge your bets. keep testing.

    You will know where you stand. If your # 10 and your not eliminated from any process then your at least #10 maybe even #1 if 1-9 where excused.When i say elgibilty list I'm not saying you will ever see it. But the dept will have a list of people still in the running. This process could start next week, and they would not hire anyone till next year in feb. theirs still another class starting the academy in nov. hence an elgibility list.

    Default Cfd test

    I heard the nov. academy class was not going to happen. That was from an upper ranking CFD Officer. They are looking to start hiring of the new list. Nov academy would been off the 95 list.
