  • AIQ I also know a few who did not receive an invite as well. Not everyone in Band 1 will get an invite. From what I was told, its completely random as to who gets through to the next steps.

    • So kinda like a lottery that la city uses.

      Is the interview actually scored or is it just pass/fail?

        Unlike LAFD who’s interview is scored and carries a lot of weight through the process, this County interview seems to be just a selection interview. Either a go or no go, no score.

          With them already being short staffed, seems like this is a good time to get hired

          • I wonder how many of us got interviews, anyone else on here a medic as well?

            Comment


            • Myself and 4 other of my friends all got emails and neither of us are medics.

              Comment


              • Myself and 3 of my other friends received emails; We are all medics. Don’t think it had a factor though, like someone said it’s seems all random selection.

                • Some info I got from a buddy of mine who works on the department and spoke to a Training Captain the other day.

                  - Massive hiring and academies this year, earliest one is gonna be March.
                  - Two concurrent academies, one in Del valle, one in Pomona.
                  - 200 firefighters expected hired in 2020 alone, 600 within 3 years.

                              • I wonder if everyone who submits a resume will actually get an interview? Or are they going to do something like what LBFD does (use it as a way to weed people out before sending out official biddle invites)
