                Ranked #54. Their email said they don't have an academy date at this time. I guess it's just the waiting game for now. Any idea from past academies/towers what their average recruit number is to fill?

                    Lucky. I haven't heard anything. So they must not be hiring that many if they're interviewing 60 or less. What did you score on NTN?

                        Gotcha. Wonder how many people they pulled? I ranked #69 so I figured that would at least net an interview lol. Are you local?

                          Los Angeles. Because it was so last minute, their HR is setting up the interview through webcam which is nice. Saves me a drive to Reno.

                              Thank you! No, but I have 5 years of construction industry experience under my belt. All hiring processes aside, and pending COVID-19, planning on FF1 academy in August and volunteer Crew 3 with LAFD until then.
