    • There alot of people here that went for paterson i hope most are atleast top 100 to have a legit chance ....and not sure if they would ever reach top 100 ...last test they only put in 1 class which for a big city like newark and jc its nuts! it basically give little to no chance to non veterans ...hopefully they have different plans this test around..im not sure where in the list Paterson stop in 2015 while newark and jc went 300 plus .... i relocated this test around to a more secure town not just for the test but my current job required it so work out well ...


      I was once certified by Paterson, they ask for basics credentials ..nothing out of the world they just make sure everything is legit ....the hiring chief is very very nice and all the staff members ..they answer any questions you may have

        My guess is if they were certified by paterson they are in the top 100. I know from the 2015 test they certified past 100.....what city are you going for now?

          Thank you for the advice! Sorry you didn?t get to join last time around. For Paterson I?ve heard that a lot of firefighters will be retiring which means they?ll be hiring a decent amount. I?m sure they?ll go through more than one class this time around.

              • Friendly advise!!!!!! to any one taking the physical or for any one who eventually will take the physical ..DO NOT i repeat do not take the maze tunnel for granted ..unbelievable the amount of people who were eliminated by this obstacle..Every one mainly focus on 1 aspect (getting thru the stairs) including my self and it will blow that something so simple can mess up all the hardwork . This processs is sooooo sensitive that everything should be equally handled.

                The instructors will tell you this and i saw it with my own eyes when i tested i was in shock and kinda got worried my self but thanks god everything went fine for me .

                  Yea i met with some buddies over the weekend and rumors are Paterson will be putting a big class right off the jump and also they have alot of retirements in the next couple of years almost 100 FFs will be eligible to retire in the upcoming years not sure if thats valid but may be ..so if you are top 100 in paterson you def can be reach especially when there were alot of no shows ....i guess i left to soon but i am happy with the opportunity in the town i live now .

                      Yeah be careful with the maze. My time was closer to failing than I thought it would be. Obstacle course is easy honestly as long as you keep a good pace going you?ll be fine. And the ladder climb is the easiest as long as you?re not afraid of heights. If you are then idk what to tell you but it?s apart of the job so get use to it.

                                A friend of mine was hired late this winter off the old list, they were supposed to start the academy May 1st but it's now been pushed back until August because of funding. I doubt they are going to do anything off the new list right away...
