    • Anyone know the current status of the the hiring process? I still have not heard anything so I am assuming I am dead in the water.

          • Thanks for the update. I figured I was dead in the water especially since the talk was the first class would start in 10 days. Now to try and figure out what could be in my background holding me back as I have been brought in two consecutive years for a background interview with no poly follow up.

            • jpartlowjr,
              I sent you and PM.

              It might not be your background. What did you do to improve yourself as a candidate between the 1st and 2nd process? Do you do anything to make yourself more qualified? College? Experience? Certifications?

                I kind of wonder the same thing... I drastically improved since last year, having additional training and my NR EMT. I also had a letter of recommendation written by an engineer within CFD. Maybe just not getting enough preference points. Better luck next year I assume...

                  • Hi everybody. Does anyone know how strict CFD is about driving records? My liscense was suspened 5 years ago. I was in College and I was young and stupid. I have kept a clean record since then except one ticket.

                      It all depends why it was suspended..if it was dwi you might have some explaining to do but don’t worry too much about it just put your application in and good luck.

                      • No DWIs. Just got alot of points that added up within a couple months. Having a suspended liscence really woke me up. Ive been pretty good since then.
