    Havent heard how many applied, been too much other drama going on here. I will see if I can find out when I go in tomorrow.

    I never took the Fireteam test. The written test I took to get on here was retarded.

    So does anyone know what is after the FireTeam (assuming you pass)? Is it the standard physical test, then oral board, etc...

    To all those needing a place to stay while you test,

    Your best bet in my opinion is to check with hotels in Illinois. I live right across the river in Cahokia, we have a holiday inn express, it's about a 10 min drive to downtown. Considering the time of year you should have no problem getting a room cheap.

    Just thought you guys could use the info

    I'll be testing with you guys as well, looking forward to it and good luck to all.

    I'm curious to know

    How long after they say..."you're hired", do you start the academy? For instance when will the next academy be for this round of hires?

    As soon as the entire class gets thru w/their physicals, background checks, etc. Probably a month or two.

    For instance when will the next academy be for this round of hires?

    I would think it's unlikely there will be another class until the new list comes out. I couldn't give you a good guess how soon they would pull a class off that list, but it will definatley be needed. What you need to understand there is no regular schedule of new recruit classes. That is, sometimes classes do not run right after another.

    I can tell you that off the current list there has been 5 classes ranging from 20-30 recruits in each class. I believe they went thru 200-300 off the list to get those recruits.

    Do you happen to know how many were on that list?(the last one)

    And how long is the list usually good for?

    I dont know for sure, but if I would have to guess around 600-700.

    There are a few screwy things going on here right now. I tested 3 years ago, and I believe the list before me started 6 years before.

    So as of now, you can be just about anywhere on the list, and you still have a chance.

    fieldseng or anyone else...

    Are there any fire houses near the convention center? I'm coming in from Milwaukee a day early and was hoping to possibly visit one if I have some free time.

    Another few questions...

    Does St. Louis usually only hire people with a lot of experience?

    Are they big in hiring minorities and women? Or is is usually about even?

    Is their physical test the CPAT or their own PAT?

    Thanks.

    I'm coming in from Florida a day early as well(testing Thursday coming in tomorrow) and am thinking about just exploring a bit of the city, any hot spots to check out(could be anything, doesn't necessarily have to be firehouse related)?


    Also, just want to give one more Good Luck to everybody going out for the test.

    My recommendation would be Rigazzis if your looking for some good italian food. It's located in an area known as the "the hill" which features quite a few italian restaurants, shops, and grocery stores that make the area pretty unique.

    Hopefully someone who knows the area a little better will chime in, but thats my recommendation for a good lunch/dinner.

    Good Luck,

    Bobby
