Congrats on the baby girl..
Chigo, reading your post made me think this: wtf did they do from early June when we were last in there until middle August when they started contacting people? 15 weeks have passed since anyone that hasn't been called yet has heard anything.
Congrats teddy, get ready for months of sleep deprivation.
Good call on the women, that was time well spent!
My point was i dont think, based on the pace they are moving at, the pace we have all observed, that they have had enough time to put a class together since they started calling us 5 weeks ago.
I think your right...some comments ms hammond made at the medical scheduling made me think that too.
she made some comments that said its possible they push the start of that Nov class from the 1st to the 16th if they dont have enough people to fill that class.
I think if you have gotten called by your BI your still in good shape for the first class.
What's up guys....thought I would share this bit of information. My roommate just called me and told me that a guy from his house is going down as an instructor, and just received a letter today that he is to report on Oct 21st to begin Instructor orientation and training for a Nov 1st candidate firefighter class. This has to be great news for us!!!
Glad to hear that some of you are moving on and instructor orientation is starting. Gotta stay positive guys!!!
^Just want to add to this. Your guys numbers are off. They have at least 30 women ready to go. Add the 20% crossovers and that's already 60 spots. They need less than 100 from civilians and veterans. Also, no one said the class has to be 150. November is easily doable.
I agree with the Shadez hate.
I appreciate all the kind words from you guys. My wife and I are truly blessed that they are both healthy.
The current contract says absolutely 100% no matter what the CFD shall not hire any cheeseheads under any condition. Chapter 7 article 14
No, I'm in Garfield Ridge. She told me I was the last one she had to do for the night because I lived closest to her.
Sorry fellas, I honestly wasn't expecting to get called before some of you at all. Keefus and I actually have a mutual friend and told keefus last week that my hopes weren't high on getting called this time around if they're going by when the CPAT was turned in and I totally expected him to get a call before I did.
You guys will be getting the call soon enough. Hopefully that mends our live/hate relationship. Lol
Good luck fellas!
I'm still thinking we all need to go grab a ice cold beer... When in Chicago I stay in westlawn area..
