    Uhh no shot dude. Unless you’re claiming 12 exemptions on your taxes, the posted salary for trainees is only 60k... plus I imagine you still gotta pay union dues and insurance. If you claim 0 on your taxes, it should be like 17-1800 take home.
    Sounds about right

      I'm quoting what EB1980 said. 2500 every two weeks after taxes is 5k/month.

              There were just under 100 v banders at my orientation... heard there were about 20 more they processed a few weeks later. Assuming they do actually get duel June academies, and also assuming that you’re going to lose a few V banders to med/backgrounds.... then yes, there’s is a chance.


              side note, a few of my buddy’s whose backgrounds aren’t even complete yet, got Medical’s scheduled already.

                Which orientation did you attend? I’m just waiting for that CJO and orientation invite.

                  They haven’t filled the March academy from my understanding.

                      Was wondering the same thing. Hoping to hear something this week or next. From my understanding, everyone has received their confirmation.

                          I think the only ones that aren’t are those who don’t have their Emt certification yet.

                            I thought it was random selection within Band 1?

                              Could be? I am not exactly sure. Just seems like everyone received an interview invite.
