    Default Lafd hiring freeze

    I received the same letter. It was vague. What happens when the list expires? I was told our score still is good. We just have to do a new oral board. Do we lose our current ranking on the list and have to do a new background investigation?

    Last I heard LAFD had two hiring seminars. I was told by a friend that wanted to attend, I told him I don't believe it, they are in no possition. He attended one and say they intend on hiring in about a years time. I suppose LA is anticipating either an economic recovery or they will do what is necessary to get the funds.

    Default LAFD hiring freeze

    What about the people on the current list? Will they extend it? Do we have to take the test again and start the whole process over because of the economy? That makes no sense. How can they look to new applicants when they have an established list with people ready to go? It is a waste of time and money for the city of L.A. to have a new test.

    The letter says that if you expire on the list you expire. There is no mention of extensions.

    It would be a lot less expensive and time consuming to update someone from a current list than to start all over again with new applicants.

    It does not look like LAFD will be hiring anytime soon. Also, the last oral interviews were given April 2009. If there is no tower by April 2011, there will be no one on the hiring list because everyone will have expired from their oral interviews. When that time comes they will have to either extend people and update backgrounds, or open up the oral interviews for those who have expired to start the process over again.

    Sad to not see the LAFD thread on the first page like it was for so long. Only a few more months before everyone expires on the list, I'm done in January 2011. So once everyone is expired and they open the process up again it's going to be interesting to see how that goes. So many people want to work for LAFD that this initial opening of the process is gonna have tons of applicants trying to get on. I can't wait.

    Can the LAFD extend the list due to the economic conditions? Will our test scores be used for the next application period?

    I see on this site that LA FD is hiring and the closing date is the 31st. Does anyone know if this is really taking place and if so where do you go to apply?

    Smile Academy

    An april class would be great, I also was in the april oral's. I remember during the last info session they mention they need at least 6 months to prepare for the next class. So if the next class might be in april things should start moving soon.

    "The letter says that if you expire on the list you expire. There is no mention of extensions. "

    Where can we ask about the extension or is there any extension?
