    Moving on as well. Have a friend who?s moving on too said last time there was a panel and then a chiefs interview. Curious to the way it will all play out. Anyone know whether they combine written and interview? Or just base off interview score?
    The email I got today said that the list is compiled based off the test scores and the interview. Didn?t seem to say anything about a Chiefs interview.

      I talked to a company officer during the Christmas gift delivery for CFD in December, he said that if they didn?t get the truck company approved they needed 30 to 40, if they got the truck company approved Carmel needed double. Said if he had to guess, 20 to 30 each for the other departments. My wife works for the AG and one of her attorneys, her husband works for Westfield and said they really need to get people in. I did hear Carmel got the truck company approved, so I?m going to guess they need at least 100. But there?s been no official number so far. They?ve had a few retirements lately, and probably people will try to transfer laterally to IFD or other departments. They also said that other departments will pull from this list too.
      I heard 20-30 total, not per department. Each of these departments normally takes 3-5 guys when they hire maybe up to 10 on big years. These are small departments, not like IFD. I mean that would be great if you were right, for all of us, but I?ve never heard numbers like that. That would be crazy. Hiring half the guys they interview. Usually it?s like 1 in 10.

        I was under the impression from the conversations I've had with members at these departments that the reason why they are doing a joint hiring process this time around is because they need more people this time around than they normally would.

          Two weeks away from interviews, anyone heard of any updated information? Will there only be one round of interviews, or will each department have a second chief's interview as well? Good Luck to everyone.

            You know, honestly, they've never said. It seemed to be implied in one of the study sessions that this whole process was going to be different than previous ones. At the test session, one of the Deputy Chief's for I think Fisher's said that after the interviews they'd call us back for a "department's choice" physical agility test, which I think is going to be a ladder climb.

              I realize I didn't answer your original question...they DID say that it was going to be ONE interview with one panel, one person from each department.

                            We should know by the end of next week where we fall on the list. I heard having EMT-B and EMT-P moves you up higher on the list, so we'll see if that's true or not.

                                Scores are up.

                                Did anyone else get a second email about suggesting starting preparing for the CPAT or that if you had one issued after 6/18 you were good?
