  • Minneapolis FD 2017 Hiring Process

    Anyone else on the eligible hiring list? Just wanted to get a page going where we could share any info we hear and talk about the process.

  • #2
    I am on the list. I assume its now just a waiting game until they start calling for interviews etc. Anyone else heard any other rumors on start dates?

      Hello, I am also on the list. I have not heard anything about time frames for start dates, next steps, or how many cadets they are looking to hire. The 2018 budget proposal came out today and it doesn't look like they will be adding any additional firefighter positions for next year. I will update with any info I come across.

        I've talked with a few guys and they said there's a good shot of them making it up into the 100's. The last list went up pretty high too. They're expecting quite a few retirements the next few years so we're in a good spot. As far as dates go I heard next spring for a first academy off this list but it's all up to the chief!

          Hopefully the chief wants to move quick, the sooner the better in my opinion. Good luck guys and hope to meet some of you soon.

            Just to get an idea when the notices go out for interviews and such...where are other forum members on the eligibility list? If you don't mind sharing. I'm in the 20's and am hopeful that I would be in the first round of the process depending on how many they are hiring and interviewing.

              I am in the top 25 as well so we should be the first called. It is just up in the air as to when that will be. If you hear anything let us know. I heard during the CPAT that they were wanting to run a class this year but HRAP heard it will not be until the fall. Just stay in shape and keep your eye out for an e-mail.

                I heard around March 1 for a class but I could be wrong. I'm up around 100 so I'll have to be patient. Good luck you two and keep us all updated!

                  Good to know. I guess its a waiting game for everyone. If anyone wants to train together or grab a beer let me know. I am always up for either.
