    Not at all. I try to beat 7 minutes. Just was asking as I have only one “path” I’ve used. Same dummy, same halyard with slippery nylon rope, etc.

    Is this a riddle? If so I get it. If there’s something more, maybe not.

Thoughts and experience?

    I can confirm. I've done a bunch in Orange and did my most recent one in South El Monte. Like Jman said, they are identical. Good luck!

    Year long probation comprised of two 6 month spots. You can try to stay at your second spot or attempt to go elsewhere

    received confirmation that the “withhold” status is a formality and we are still on the eligibility list.

    I reached out and this is the message I recieved back.

    "Hello Mike,



    What you are looking at is on the exams side not the hiring process. Before you were placed on the eligible list, you were placed on the withhold step until we verified that you had met all the requirements and had passed your written exam. At this time, you are still on the eligible list.



    Thank you,"

    Mine says withholds as well, but I also just got assigned a BI today so I don’t think it really means anything.
