    Wanted to bring this thread back instead of creating a new one. I'm contemplating flying to CA to complete the written test and taking the CPAT. Having to pay for both of those and take them in separate testing centers is something completely foreign to me!

    I'm a Houston, TX firefighter/emt-b (HFD) but am looking to make the move to CA. I've worked for a big dept and have seen how it operates. I have a desire to move the CA to be closer to family and work for a much smaller department. There is all kind of uneasiness of job security and shady rumors created by our hostile mayor in Houston that make me want to make the move ASAP.

    Reading through this post makes it seem pretty close to impossible to get hired in Burbank! However there will have to be more than number of applicants to discourage me.

    Anyone give me any insight into the hiring process and the department as a whole?

    Thanks!
    Don't have a whole lot of info for their process, I applied so I'm gonna give it a shot, I know you said you want to work for a smaller department but LA County Fire is going to open up their hiring process this year and It might be another option but it is a much bigger department.

    The top few candidates received background packets last week. What a great early christmas present! Initial background orientation is 1st week in January. Good luck to all who moved on!

    Rank and Score

    A friend of mine got a 97% and is ranked 3rd but his e-mail said that there may be more than one person in each rank. Anybody have an idea of how many people are in each rank?Or how many people they expect really take to backgrounds.

    Oral interview scores (and written test scores as well) were emailed to candidates on Friday afternoon (12/3). During the interview week, it appeared as though there were at least 150 to 200 candidates that received oral board interviews, but thats just sort of a guestimation and what I heard from others. The email stated those of top rank and score will go into background review "shortly", but unsure what the exact timeframe is. Hope this answers your questions!

    Orals

    Anybody take the orals? I wanted to know if anyone got a response yet? Just wanted to know how many they are taking to orals?

    I got my results saying that I passed my written but they are only giving orals to those in higher bands. They didn't give my band or score, but I assume that I didn't score high enough. The email was fairly vague.

    Got my email about moving on to the oral. If the passing % was really only 70 then thats a little bit of a bummer as Im sure I scored above a 90%. Oh well. Goodluck to everyone moving on in the process!
