    In past tests they've only invited around 100 candidates to go forward in the hiring process.

          Nor I... as this is my first time applying, should I be expecting something in the email or a physical letter?

                Does it usually take this long to hear back? I noticed that the FF/Paramedic posting was just taken down...maybe they were waiting to do testing at the same time?

                  I guess I was a little premature in my previous post, just got an invitation to the written exam!

                      I have heard from someone inside of SCCFD that "a lot of guys are retiring" not sure how many a lot is, but it sounds like the class could be a good size. another good question is how many medics vs emts they are planning on hiring because they could probably easily fill a few recruit classes with just medics. any insight?

                        Plan on some of those positions to be taking by the laid off San Jose firefighters. Regardless if County comes out and says it or not, the word is they will be looking out for those guys.

                          California state law is laid off firefighters have first preference to other jobs in the state as long as they can pass all the hiring steps. But I've seen some candidates who have been laid off with the attitude that they were owed other jobs. Guess what? They failed their oral boards with their attitude. I talked to some of these guys at a large city test. I had to shake my head.

                            What about firefighters that are scheduled to be laid off, but it has not happenned yet? Do they get any preference?

                              Hopefully those openings soak up some of the SJ layoffs
