        Any idea how many they are looking to hire? I heard there were some financial troubles from last year, any chance this is true and might affect hiring?

          There is a class retiring every year except one for about the next 15 years. From 1984-2000 the city hired at a very steady pace. So there could be 2-3 classes every test for awhile. Cincinnati is very fuzzy in how they do their budgets. There is a 20 million shortfall quite often that always magically disappears. So in the event there would be some financial crisis, they could easily cut through attrition rather than layoffs. When the city was 40-50 million short in 2009-2012 they never had a single lay off.

                        Just bumping the thread to keep it alive. This will by my fourth time going through the process. First time they cancelled the process, 2nd I just didn't get called, and the third I didn't pass the physical (I was definitely not prepared at all).

                        I just set my test date and am curious to see how the test goes with the new company.

                          Took the written test today and feel pretty good about it. Liked it a lot better than the ergometrics testing they used for 2015 list. Does anyone know if the oral interview portion of the process will be the same as the 2015 process with scenario type questions?

                            How long does it take for the written exam results to come back? and How does the process and selection goes?

                              It?s usually 4-6 weeks for results I believe. As far as selection, if you pass everything, they have a rule of something, and they pretty much pick who they want out of those that they reach and nobody there is able to tell how they decide who they pick. So even if you pass all the hiring requirements successfully including background and poly, they can still skip you over, not tell you why and move on down the list. It?s the luck of the draw
