    I'm now further down the list. Not exactly what to do, think, say, etc. But to be moved that much is crazy.

      I'm sorry to hear that. Maybe they initially gave you points that they did by accident and then removed them when they recently just amended the list. I really am sorry.

        You have nothing to be sorry for. Congrats and good luck to everyone else.

          In the 800s, I have a better chance winning the lotto then getting hired off this list. Goodluck to everyone who has a chance.

              Yea, guys on here should keep in mind that the previous list they ran all the way through to the end of the list, exhausting the list, basically everyones number came up

                Good point, I don?t see why they wouldn?t keep this list, the common council is happy with the diversity of the list 1537 applicants 44% black, 39% white, 11% Hispanic, and 3 percent Asian and with 20% of the list being woman they will exhaust this list also.

                  Don?t forget the 6 firehouses they closed down this year. That hurts this list which makes me think if you have a number above 500-600 you may never get hired. Also smaller academy classes, not like Chicago where you have 100-150 in a class. You?re talking 50 at the most.

                    However keep in mind those station closures don't effect the number of people being hired for the next 20 years. Think about it the next 10 years they are replacing retires that were hired in 1988-1998. That's when the department was a strength of 1150. Meaning the class sizes will be what they always were for many years to come. The station closures have no effect for many years.

                        Why such a high rate?? All of the guys I?ve talked to that work there say they love it. Lots of retirements or something? Just curious

                        • 6% attrition is just normal anywhere. Wasn't specific to MFD. That's just a typical retirement attrition of fire service. Everyone on here has a chance, just a matter of time! Good luck

                          • At the joint and fianc? committee last week they stated there will be 26 cadets and 20 people off the list for the next class.

                            • Thank you Matt. I watched after you messaged me too and they confirmed 1 class this year. Maybe there will be another in spring you think? Or will they only do another next summer with cadets we could assume?

                              • Yea I think you are right they will wait for the cadets but hopefully not.
