        • Hello new to forum eagerly anticipating the latest test results from the city supposed to be 8 November timeframe. Retiring from military 2020 and this would be a great way to continue my public service. Good luck to all that took the test and looking to be hired!

          • As to the pension plan: how does it work? It's very plainly 2.2% for the first 20 years of service with an additional 2% for 5 years after that. This totals into 54% pension with 25 years of service. Is there an age requirement? Can you retire at 50 years old with 20 years of service? Or do you have to perform 25 years of service in order to collect immediately upon retirement/before a certain age, say 60?

            Also, any military personnel that have gotten hired: when you bought back your active duty years, do those years count towards early full retirement? For example, say you have five active duty years and currently serve as a reservist. Would those five years count towards the 20 or 25 years for the aforementioned retirement accrual amounts?

            • If you look at your applicant portal, the status changed to "in scoring." It appears that the scores should be out within the next week like the job posting stated.

                  • The same place you put your application on the city website. You check your applications and it will state the current status of your application.

                    • Has anyone heard anything on when the 198 will start, and will it be from the old list as they did with the 193, or the new list coming out this week?

                        When I had asked when the first class from the new list would start I was told March. Not sure how true that is. But I believe the old list expires once the new one comes out. So I would guess that they’ll be from the new list.

                            I don’t believe so. There have been several posts throughout this thread that show there wasn’t a physical training test of any sort until the first day of the fire academy. Based off the posts, it appears there’s only a medical exam.

                            • I just want to say good luck to all going through the hiring process, and I’d also like to add, that I have been following this forum for a while now and the support is amazing. It makes me incredibly happy and proud to be pursing a career with you all.
