    Default Louisville, KY Fire Department Interviews

    Now that the hiring list/bands are established, does anyone know when interviews will start taking place?

    Default Louisville KY hiring list

    I know Louisville is going through budget cuts, but have also read public safety is exempt from the hiring freeze. Can someone from Louisville clarify please?

    i have a friend going through the process with LFD and also have a family friend who is a Capt on the east end. From what I hear they are still hiring from this list, but it will be next fiscal year. The fiscal year ends in the late summer months. So look for early fall for things to get rolling. May I ask what band you scored in?

    So does this mean that they won't be recruiting for 2008? I was looking to apply.

    thanks for the info, that helps. There were no people in band A, but there are 31 of us are in band B. The breakdown is as follows:

    THE FOLLOWING INDICATES HOW MANY CANDIDATES ARE IN EACH BAND:

    Each line below first specifies the band, then the number of candidates in that band, and then the number of people above that band, in that order.

    A, 0, 0
    B, 31, 0
    C, 101, 31
    D, 104, 132
    E, 28, 236

    Total: 264

    the website for Louisville Metro Govt--HR section has an advertisement for the 2008 campaign, but I don't know if that will change, given the budget setbacks.

    So you guys tested back in summer 07 and they haven't even had interviews yet?

    I was hoping to apply this year but they probably will not even take applications if it is this backed up...

    I'm in the B band.

    My wife talked to someone in Metro HR, and she got some more info.
    He told her that the test scores are good through December, so as long as they begin the interview process before then, they will honor the current scores. If not, be ready to test again...

    I would assume that the $$ they spent putting together the bands would not be wasted, and they'll hire from this group...hope so anyway!

    Yes, mts, I took the written in September 07 (I believe) and the Physical in November or so. Who knows, they make take applications again soon.

    Got this message yesterday...

    The hiring process for Firefighter should be starting back up soon.

    In order to pick up where we left off, we need to update our eligibility list by identifying the applicants who are still interested in pursuing a career with the Fire Department.

    Please let me know if you are still interested in this position. Failure to respond to this email by August 1, 2008 will result in your name being removed from any consideration for this position.

    Please be advised that the Louisville Fire Department expects candidates to be able to perform the essential physical functions of the position. Therefore, you may be required to take the physical ability test again. The score you receive when retaking the physical ability test will not affect your original scores or band. You will be required to pass.

    Please respond to this email concerning your interest or questions, or call me at (502) 574-3684.

    NOTE: I do not have any additional information about the schedule at this time.
