  • Dcfd ff/medic 2018

    Is anyone who applied for FF/MEDIC that closed April 21st still waiting to hear back? Specifically is there anyone who has applied who's last name starts with "W" who has received the CPAT orientation?

    seems as if everyone I know who applied has received an email....except me. Just looking to hear from others.

    did you make sure you had EVERYTHING the posting asked for?
    and do you have at least 1 year of ALS experience?


    • #3
      Yup it's all there. And the other folks from my medic class that applied all have comparable ALS experience. Even those who forgot things on the app received follow up emails to submit such info.

        contact hr and see if they received your paperwork. HR there is terrible.


        • #5
          If you've not been contacted, there is probably an issue with paperwork. If you want the job, you will need to follow up at every step to ensure you don't slip through the cracks. I had to submit my papers 3 times when I went through the process.

            Where do they normally advertise for hiring? I applied the previous time and never heard anything back?

              Their website and social media. If you don't follow up, you probably won't be hired.
