    I'm 243 and I'm still just listed as "Eligible to Hire" on the site. No calls, letters, or emails for me since over a year ago.
    I called the number I was given on Monday. I was told they are putting a class in this sept- Oct. They stopped at rank 196 so if you were not called for the previous orientation you will not be in this class. Next orientation will be sometime next spring, just prior to the graduate of the class in there. List is good until sept 2019

      I was 195 and there was more than 1 person behind me at the 1st orientation class. We had to line up by rank. 2nd orientation wasn't by rank though.

        I was 171 until I got pushed back by the bilinguals. Second orientation was in order of ten people per coming in if i remember correctly and the letters didn't say anything about rank which was curious. My medical eval was on 5/30, paperwork was to be turned in on or before 6/24 to Captain Smallwood and fingerprints was 7/30. They said at last orientation that they wanted to hire 75 out of the 85 of us that were there... Hopefully it's all true. Don't know anything for certain.
        I know I keep saying this: good luck guys.

        • how could they do a double class if there were only 85 guys at orientation in may. it would be more logical if they did the double class sometime in the spring or even do 2 classes next year just like this year.

            I really don't know, and that's a great question. I heard they were going to do the back to back classes, but, have absolutely 100% no proof. Like I said earlier, it's kind of a mystery. A lot of my info is from people in the department, but, even that is subject to immediate change. Any takers that know better?

            Also, at my interview, the human relations person told me that our list expires in April of 2019... Now I'm hearing from the message board that it may be longer. Just gotta roll with it I guess.

            Dude, that's a really good question. No idea at all.

              Nothing is in stone..OHR said the list expires September 2019 the first email with scores says the 2 years starts when the first class is called would make sense I forget the exact date they I believe it's the end of 9/2019 they may be separating classes into 40s range like how one prior was

                Class 195 will start this fall on a 4 on/4 off schedule: once they finish ems, class 196 will start their 4 on/4 off schedule opposite 195. There hasn?t been orientation for 196 yet because they will be 4 months behind 195
