    Default Rockford FD

    Has anyone who is still testing with them heard anything about about interviews yet? Or know when about we should hear? All I remeber is during the Psych eval that it was going to be sometime after Thanksgiving

    Everything I've heard from folks testing is that they were advised that they wouldn't hear anything now until late Decemeber or January.

    Not sure what happened, but a wrench got thrown into the process somewhere.

    599 might be able to jump in and give some better reasoning than I can.

    From what we have been hearing out on the company, interviews should be sometime in late December/early January. This is not official, but it is the best that I can give you at this time.

    We should be looking to hire 8-12 FF's in late February/early March.

    Good luck!

    hmm, I heard letters were sent to everyone earlier this week, I havent seen one so I wonder if that was just a rumor or if mine didnt make it to me for some reason.

    FWIW - the guys I know still in the testing process (not weeded out already) have not received any letters this week.

    Got my letter today for an interview.
    It said they were only looking to hire a few over the next couple years? Is that going to be right away? Or total off the list? RFD? You have any idea?

    244:

    I am still going with 8-12 this year in March. I know for sure that we lost a couple of people this year to other departments, a couple pensioned off with injuries, and 3 or 4 retired. I guess we will see in March. Good luck with the interview!

    Thanks for the reply RFD.
    Will they likely have 2 academies of this list? Such as the 8-12 you suggested and then another say spring 08'?
    And where did the firefighters go to that left Rockford for another department? Can't imagine myself leaving there if I got hired! haha!
    Thanks again.

    rdub:

    Our academies are always either March 1 or April 1. They will run 2 academies (one in 07 and one in 08) if their are enough openings.

    One person left for Madison and another left for a job as a nurse in Madison.

    Good luck!

    I heard from a buddy of mine who is on the department who heard from a chief that the list should be posted today (Friday 26th). He told me to try calling headquarters to see where I was at on the list (if at all), but I didn't call yet, I need to psych myself up a bit for that haha.

    Found out I'm in the mid 30's out of 59 people that made the list. Not nearly as good as I was hoping. Worst part is, I'm 6 weeks from finishing college and with those points I would have moved up to 13. But oh well, maybe I'll get lucky and still get hired on in '08.

    Sorry to hear about the points, I would think mid 30's would have a good chance. A buddy of mine whom I went to school with was in the mid 30's on the last list and I believe he was offered a job but turned it down due to still being in school. How did you find out where you were on the list? Did you call or get something in the mail?

    Thanks,

    Bobby

    A very good friend of mine is a FF there, he swung by HQ today to see where I was then he called me. But you are right, he said he was mid 30's from the the '04 test and he got hired in '06. So maybe I'll be able to sneak in there next year.

    Didn't get my score yet, but saw your comment about college I too just missed extra points. I'm done with school except for one class that the college cancelled on me and I'm making it up now. But I know I would have liked those 5 points.
