      Anyone on here have their interview? How did you think it went? 15 minutes was tough to fit everything you wanted to say in but hoping for the best. cmfireguy any idea when we might hear back on who is moving on as a finalist?

        I had mine last Thursday. I think that it went rather well. I was in the interview for about 25 minutes. From what I have read in previous wall posts about the Knoxville Fire Department's hiring process is that it will take at least a couple of weeks before anyone hears anything back.

          Good luck to you, I had mine last Tuesday and was in the room for 15-20. I asked at the end when to expect something back, they stated 3 weeks or so, just wondering if anyone had heard something else. USMC, do you have any fire or EMS certs or fire service experience?

              Thanks! They seemed to ask quite a few questions about reciprocity for my Level 2 / Medic card from Ohio, didn't know if you had the same. Keep me updated on what you hear, I'll shoot you my number in a PM.

                As the Interview Comittee is finishing up their Interviews. Let the waiting begin. They will gather all information and put everyone on a list from 1-how ever many they Interviewed. Im guessing approx 350 people Interviewed. They will make a short list of applicants and a reserve list. Like anything they will start with the short list and start their background, polygraph and medical exam. If you complete all those you will be in the Academy. If you fail, they pull from the reserve list. Here is how you know if your on one of the two lists. No news is good news. If you receive a letter saying that everything has been completed and you are no longer being considered or something like that, then Im sorry you were not selected. If you haven't received anything within the next two-three weeks, then you are still being considered. So Please be patient.

                Even if you have Fire Training you will go the the Fire Academy. If you have a State of Tennessee or a National Registry EMT or Paramedic then you will not have to complete the EMT portion of the Academy. You will sit outside and test hose, ladders, do odd ball stuff, but you will still have to participate in the PT in the Afternoons.

                Shoot me some Questions.

                  Thanks for the reply, no news is good news....that'll be a fun wait! I think now if I get a letter the mail 10 weeks down the road I'll expect the worst. Do you know how many reserves they typically take or does is correspond to the size of the class?

                    UpDate

                    Rejection Letters were sent out on Friday. So if you did not receive a letter by Monday, then you are still considered in the process. They have their Top 20-25. 15-16 to begin the Process. The other 9-10 are considered reserves. Now, Just because you reveived a rejection letter don't give up. The last two years they have actually exausted the Reserve list because they couldn't get anyone to pass the background or polygraph exams. This is a slim chance, but hey its a chance.

                    Hope this helps with some info. As of now, they are still planning on a November Start Date.

                      cmfireguy105, I was wondering if you had heard anything else lately, I never recieved a rejection letter and I was wondering how things were going?
