          Cobb will not be hiring anytime soon. My good buddy works for cobb and they are furloughing for sure. As far as laying offs are concerned he didnt say anything about that.

              I hear that Gwinnett is on a hiring freeze. Also I hear they aren't developing the new stations because of budget cuts and there is no funding for new staff.

                Gwinnett isn't in better shape then Cobb. They have been in a hiring freeze for the last two years while Cobb continued hiring. They also lost some holiday pay and those stations won't be built until the economy turns around. Cobb is the number one dept in the state followed by Gwinnett.

                    True, last year was a class of 90 and starting soon is a class or 20-30. A good 20-30 did not make it through the class of 90.

                            Not to be a jackass, but if you are looking for a job with any reputable fire department in this state you might want to brush up on your spelling and grammar skills.
