    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.

    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.

    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...

    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 know a list of names has been submitted to the Civil Service Board for hiring. 2 Classes, the first in Oct and the 2nd in Dec. You should know soon.

    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.

    maybe CFD frowns upon being part of FH.com forums... seems like no one on here has had any luck (besides JR)...

    Not 100% sure so take it as a grain of salt but when I had my background interview they did mention that they were preparing to put two classes in which leads me to think they were getting candidates lined up for both recruitment classes especially since an earlier post says that they may begin within a month of one another but you never know for sure. It's a long process and nothing is set in stone until you get an offer to begin the academy.
    I was brought in last year for a background interview and again this year. I have not heard anything in regards of being brought in for the poly yet so at this point I'm not sure what to think. My background is pretty clean so if I don't move forward again this year I will be a little confused on what could be holding up my advancement. All we can do is wait and hope that we get brought through further. It's very competitive so they definitely can be picky in their choice of candidates and deciding who is best fit for the job.
    Good luck!
