Job offer after Volunteer
I am getting ready to start my recuit class for a combination department as a volunteer recurit. I am going in with the intentions of trying to learn more about firefighting and if this is a career I would be interested doing full time. The chief is aware that these are my intentions and has told me he supports it and is fine with the department. Has anyone been offered a full time job from a vollie position? Is this a good way to try and become a full time firefighter?

There are a lot of combo depts in my neck of the woods that hire exclusively from the volunteer ranks. Even if they don't, the experience will no doubt give you some preparation for the test.
If you want to go on to a bigger dept it might not be as helpful, but like anything else you choose to do, the effort you put into it, and the experiences and lessons you take from it will be reflected in the end product.
Have fun, and study hard.Never argue with an Idiot. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience!
