    Default Concord NC 2008

    I know this is a shot in the dark, but is anyone else in the process for the Concord, NC fire department?

    Yes. They have 8 firehouses with #9 to open in the late summer/early fall of 2008 from what I've been told. Great department.

    How is the pay and benefits? Also how far is it from Charlotte?

    Not sure about pay/benefits. I'd assume the pay is somewhat close to Charlotte's, but not as high. Its just north of Charlotte. Concord has the two biggest tourist attractions in NC: Concord Mills mall and Lowes Motor Speedsway.

    Unfortunately, they don't hire very regularly. But according to their website, they have plans for two more station, each with an engine and ladder company, and I think one will have a rescue as well.

    Me too--I go at 3:15.

    The pay in Concord is not bad when comparing it to other cities around our area of the same size. They work a 24/48 and they have the state 30 year retirement. I've heard nothing but good things about the department from its firemen (I've gotten the "real scoop".). Good luck!

    Default Interview

    I hope everyone's interview went well. Mine lasted about 10 minutes...I couldn't believe it! My panel was a Captain, a Senior Firefighter and a Battalion Chief. Did they seem to stress ride alongs to anyone at the end of the interview process?
