    "quick question. la county and la city are two different things, why?"

    The answer to this question will start a whole new topic in a different forum, lets keep this forum focused on the hiring situation for LAFD

    Default updated background

    I received a phone call from personnel this afternoon. I have to update my background. There will be background interviews going on for those in the next class. I asked when the drill tower will be, and again, a tentative date for Dec./Jan. It is confirmed that there is no Sept. drill tower. Personnel wants to update our background for the next class, because of how much time has passed, and all the towers that have been cancelled. Another waiting game, hopefully they have it in Dec. take care

    Are the people getting called for the Dec. academy formerly promised to be in the July class that was canceled?

    Candidates who were suppose to be in the July class are the ones getting the call for background updates for the TENTATIVE dec./jan. class. There is no academy yet set in stone. The dates are still tentative and can still be pushed back. The reason why there is no guarantee for the july candidates to be in the dec. class is because backgrounds have to be redone, and some candidates oral interviews will hit the 2 year expiration before the dec. timeline. You might want to check to see when ur oral interview expires. As of right now, what i was told is that those whose oral interviews expire before the next drill tower (dec/jan) will be put back into the mush pot, and there is no extension. Sidenote: is that the fire dept. is lobbying to figure out a way to work with the personnel dept. on this issue. Right now it is still up in the air on what personnel is going to do about the expiration of the oral interviews, hopefully there will be an extension for those whose interviews expire. If your oral interview expires soon, I would call the recruitment office and find out what is going to happen. Thats why there is no guarantee for those who were suppose to be in the July class. Good luck to everyone!

    I asked personnel if after the back ground refresher and assuming there is a dec/jan class what I be for sure in the class, and I was told...No not for sure... there is still a selection process...I think Spitter's post sized it up pretty well, overall this is good news at least there is activity going on, good luck to all.

    Spitter when did you finish your oral? My understanding after reading about the brownouts is that if the brownout plan is enacted they will in fact only have one academy for fiscal year 2009-2010 instead of the three planned per this article by the Fire Chief-http://ourla.org/images/stories/firedeptvillar.pdf Fiscal year 2009-2010 started July 1, 2009 I believe. That would mean only 50 people will be hired untill July 1, 2010. I am just trying to figure out how many people may be ahead of me. I was told by personell that they where recieveing 1200 applicants a month.

    I believe my oral will expire in June. Not 100% positive, I would have to check on that. But its around that time. Yes, the word on the street is that there will only be one academy held this year.
    When did you take your oral? You can also call the recruitment office for more information.
    Hope that helps
    Good luck

    Spitter: My Oral was April 2009 so I will be on the list until April 2011. My guess is that your oral was June 2008 and your oral will expire June 2010. Is that correct? If that is correct that means there is about 11 months between us. At about 1,200 applicants a month that means there were about 13,200 applicants between you and I. When I say applicants I mean applicants that may or may not have passed the initial written test.

    For all those reading this I was told by personel that when they stopped the process they had about 8,000 applicants. I am not sure how many of those applicants have made it through the written test and then passed there oral with a 95% or better. If anyone is willing to ask personell how many applicants have passed their oral's and recieved a 95% or better please let me know what you find?

    irishmanned: yes my oral will expire in 2010. The wait is about 2 years. I have been in the process about 2 years now since I did the first step and filled out the application. It's a long wait, but its like this everywhere, and might even be longer at other departments.
