    correct...thats how it works.....remember...just because your 20th (for example) in one town doesnt mean your always going to be 20......if guys infront of you get hired else where it knocks them off other lists they are on for other places........

    I got my results back and did pretty damn well. I also just heard from a reliable source (within the department) that they're going to be looking to hire somewhere between 5-10 firefighters in the immediate future, perhaps as early as February. If that figure of 5-10 is accurate, based on my rank, I'll definitely be getting a letter as soon as the hiring process begins.

    The catch is that my current job has me overseas temporarily on a consulting gig. It will cost me an awful lot of money to fly home on very short notice but I'll obviously have to do it. I also don't know how much vacation time I'll need to use if I fly home.

    Can anyone give me a run down of the "time line" of the hiring process? i.e. from the day you get your certification letter in the mail from the town, what happens? Do you have to respond in person at the station, or do you just have to mail something back? Then what? Generally speaking, how much advance notice do you get from that point until the actual in-person interview? How many "appointments" (i.e. interview, drug test, any orientation meetings, etc) would you expect to have before the hiring process is official?

    Firefighting is my dream job - but I obviously don't want to jeapordize my current job until I'm officially hired. Any help you guys could give me in planning out how to fly home, time I'll need to budget for the process, etc, would really be a huge help.

    As a vet, you shouldve moved to a city like Newark or jersey city to insure an appointment. now you are on lists with thousands of other people, because these departments hire from many different towns. But with that said 64 still isn't bad

    Paterson is in the process of hiring. Backgrounds still have to be done. The number could be between 16 and up to 25 or so.

    I got a buddy who is a Union FF. I remember him stating that Union is close to hiring (if they havent already) and I am almost positive he said Linden was in the mix too.

    Im awaiting for Bloomfield to hire at the end of the month. Hiring 6 and I am "sitting pretty". 27th is the supposed swear in date with rumored academy on March 1st but it may be in house. The state has 3 weeks from today to send the damn certs to us. They have 3 weeks to do interviews, backgrounds, medical, psych......im getting anxious as all hell here. FDNY exam is on St Pattys
