    I know back in their 2015 hiring process it was pretty strict. I believe the height to weight ratios are still available to view if you can find the La County 2015 job posting. Not sure if they are still utilizing that same height to weight list

    • There’s a ton of people in band 1, how does county usually create an eligibility list following the passing of backgrounds and medical? Based on department need? is it just random? Anyone have any insight?

      • WeeWoo I don’t think every single person from Band 1 received an email for the digital selection interview. I mean I could be wrong but if anyone has an insight chime in.

          It’s both. Dependent on need as well as random. I’ll be surprised if most of band 1 doesn’t expire from the eligibility list, before the year time table.

            Is the year from application, test, or interview?

            my understanding is that the department is looking for 6-800 people. 6 towers a year. I don’t know how accurate this is, but came from a Capt.

              One year from the day we got our letters showing our score for the written exam. If you don’t recieve a CJO by October 3, 2020 you will be expired from the list.

                • Based on previous testing, chances are the list gets extended

                  • The 2015 list lasted much longer than a year. It’s just a wait and see game at this point.

                      This has the ratios on it.

                      • Same info for the 2015 test as the current test:

                        In accordance with Civil Service Rules, names of candidates receiving a passing score will be placed on the eligible register in the order of their score group for a period of twelve (12) months following the date of promulgation.

                        NO PERSON MAY COMPETE FOR THIS EXAMINATION MORE THAN ONCE EVERY 12 MONTHS.
