      Almost everyone should know around within the first week of October. Once it leaves CFD's HR, the test have to be analyzed by an outside company. The results are dependant on that company's schedule and their workload

          • They said something to do with this years budget due to the election. My partner at work has close friends and family on the city. They told him they keep hearing after the new year. But, it's the city of Chicago, so who knows.

                It will be 4 years that this list has been up this December. I don?t see them giving another test for another 3-4 years.

                    • What was your number?

                      • What was the number? So I know to answer it

                        • Not everyone will have the same background investigator. They will call you on whatever number you put down on your application packet. They may ask you a few questions to verify some things and to schedule a day to stop by at your home address. That?s all that I know right now, no extra information was given.

                          • Was the number from 773 or 312 area code?
