Got a new fire class Starting March 2nd in Essex County good luck to anyone who's in
I just got csc certification for north Hudson does anyone know how many they are hiring
Anyone know how many Evesham fire is looking to hire?
Anyone hear anything on how many Jersey City is looking to hire? Also any idea how many vets they typically take on?
I saw Evesham was hiring through their Facebook page. Yes they are non civil service and the application period ends on March 3 2105. Now I have a totally different question regarding New Jersey and their hiring. I live in SJ and was wondering if anyone had any info on Mt. Laurel. I see they have a career staff of 44 ( which is a nice size) they also have a large budget and unlike camden they are not in a bad fiscal state. So my question is this, if I were to try to get hired in Mt. Laurel do I need to get an address there and establish residency? Does anyone know if they are even looking to hire anybody when the next test actually becomes available? I picked Mt. Laurel due to the fact that they have a large staff (career progression) and they seem to have a nice pay rate. Around 75k a year. Camden would be great but the uncertainty of their fiscal standing is making me weary of even trying. Also if you apply somewhere are you basically stuck getting hired where you live? I'm in camden county now and most depts around me have a handful of paid guys but they really don't catch a lot of work and work ****ty 10 hour shifts.. If anyone has any info at all I would appreciate it. Thanks guys
Long shot, but any indication on when the next civil service test will be? The website is so vague.
Wait, so do you live in SJ or Camden? Anywhere you want to work here in NJ you have to establish residency for at least 6 months I believe. Here scroll through pages 4-6 https://ndex.ci.newark.nj.us/dsweb/G...pplication.PDF
There you will see where you're eligible for being hired based on where you live. 44 members is not a big department by the way. I would not make a move for that. If you want to be hired move to Jersey City, Newark, Patterson, and so on. I'm in the same boat too. Where I live is an 89 member department, but they never hire and the other towns I'm eligible for don't hire much either. My dream city to work at is Newark where I grew up. Looks like an amazing department. However, I don't know if I can stomach living in that city again with a family just for that job.
Just saw the CSC updated their website for March/April. Says they completed the the Job Analysis portion and now the testing portion is in the planning phases. So maybe by the end of the year a test date will be announced?
I'm sorry, but I was not asking for your opinion.
I lived in Newark growing up and while it can be a great city it has many evils. I don't care for degrading my quality of life just to work there. I'll be happy as a firefighter in any town.
