    Does anyone know exactly what NB FD is looking for in a canidate?

    Do certs matter? Being a resident? Minority? EMS backgrounds?

    thanks for the info


    In response to this it is my understanding as others have said that they will take who they want. Last time around I was told it was extremely political and they were getting pressured to fufill affirmative action requirements. As for certs, NB has EMS and all they require of firefighters is to be an MRT as they are 1st responders. I am sure having more can't hurt you, but ya never know. Being a minority and a resident and female I'm sure will only boost your chances in getting into there Dept. Its frustrating to me to bust your *** on the test and oral to not have it ranked and have them pick who they want from the list. I haven't recieved my results yet, hopefully they'll come in the mail today.

    Good Luck
    Cheers
    Mark

    Understatement of the year!



    Off the last list, they hired 6 classes. Up until the last class, only 3 people off the Top 10 (if it was ranked and not BS) were hired (1 was offered but turned down the job because he had a better offer). They finally offered jobs to the other people in the Top 10 for the last class.

    Have not heard a thing yet....

    The letter with the oral board scores indicates that the hiring list is to be approved at the next council meeting which should have been held on 01/24 per the city website. Otherwise the next scheduled council meeting is 2/14.

    Afterwards my understanding is that from the certified hiring list the Chief will then interview the final candidates.

    Candidate School starts on March 5th... a mere 39 days from now.

    Best of Luck to everyone who has been involved in this four month long event!

    List has been certified for at least a week. It's public information. Can pick a copy up at the Personel office. Aprox 156 of you made it onto the list along with the 3 women.

    List is a chart with everyone who passed with their overall average score. It is not in order of rank. Once it became certified it becomes public information.

    Like it has been said before: THERE IS NO RANKING

    *having flashes of quotes from Kim Jong-Il in Team America right about now*


    However, if you get a list that is sorted by score then you can see how you compare to the other scores.
