    Ya I haven’t heard anything and I have talked to them a few times about it. I got bumped up to vband after the application process and I’m not sure if that some how screwed up my application or what. I am going to call this week and annoy them some more.


    who exactly are you calling? I finished backgrounds back in february and though I have a very clean background, I had “resigned en leu of termination” from another department due to an injury in the academy. Apparently because I checked “yes” on that, my BI said it’s going to sit with HR and will be awhile until I hear anything. But if I could just speak to the right person in HR it would be pretty great to clear some things up.. like if I was DQ’d or not.

      So they asked if you’ve ever been terminated from a past job? What was the actual question on the form?

      • I’ve only done a couple of background packets, but yeah they usually ask if you’ve ever been fired from a job..and you have to explain. And just as he said they ask if you’ve ever resigned instead of being fired. And you have to explain.

          Seems like their background is pretty strict if something this simple is having to “sit with HR.” Unless this is standard for all backgrounds, I’ve never been through one.

            Honestly I’m just calling the testing people. It is important that you understand this because I didn’t at first. The people actually passing you on after interviews are not firefighters. It is a branch of the hiring process that is strictly hr. It’s not a captain or chief combing through a thousand videos. It is an hr representative saying yay or nay. Also when you call the testing people they will not forward you to the next step which is hr. The only person that you have to contact is the testing people or whoever you have been dealing with. Because it is a government job, if you feel that you have been looked over or prejudiced against you can appeal the decision made to put your application on hold. It is an actual bylaw written into la county’s application process where you can essentially get a second look at your application and explain yourself.

            • What’s the phone number for the testing people?

              thanks for the info man.


              and to those who asked, the question “have you ever resigned en leui of termination” is pretty standard. It’s weird because initially my BI said it wasn’t a big deal, and I’m currently a firefighter at another department...

                  When I was first told that I was like “wait, say that again?” I feel ya man. The number is (323) 838-2239. They are working strange hours I guess but every time I call they answer.
