      and thanks docP, idk if I’m even gonna waste time with them, last time I interviewed I scored 100, passed the cap test and turned in my background and then 2 weeks later got a email saying I was no longer in the process. Don’t see why since I’ve passed backgrounds with 2 different departments.
      That sucks. I really wish they would give feedback instead of a vague "thanks but no thanks" letter. It would help to know what to improve on instead of having to guess and waste everyone's time. There are a lot of places (most I would assume) who do it the same way, so I'm sure there is a good reason.

                what was your timeline in the process if you don’t mind sharing? I applied in Feb 2020, interview in July, did my PIQ in August, BI complete in October and am still waiting to hear back. I applied for the 2020 process. The LA Human Resources told me My application is expired after July so I am still hoping to hear something in the next few weeks but not sure who else has had CJOs.

                Thank you!

                  Don't know if yall have watched this yet. Was filmed in January, I just found it. Very informative, if you got an interview for 2020 and passed to backgrounds there is reason to be more optimistic.

                  The highlights:

                  - According to Chief Larson those in the 2018 process are SOL if they didn't apply again in 2020.

                  -She also said out of 10k applicants, only about 40% from what I remember her saying took the FCA. Those that didn't are also SOL.

                  -They only interviewed the amount they needed for this cycle, compared to 2018 where everyone got an interview. Same for backgrounds.

                  -LA City Personnel dept drives hiring per Chief Larson, I'm assuming they are waiting on the budget to be confirmed (which it was yesterday). See link below:

                  https://www.foxla.com/news/la-city-c...omeless-crisis

                  Fingers crossed notifications start coming out in the next few weeks. I know this has been an emotionally exhausting experience for me, and I'm sure most of you feel the same.

                  Best of luck to everyone, hope we get some good news! If not, keep on keeping on!

                  I was very optimistic reading this but my time is running short due to my interview being in July and per city personal telling me that’s when I expire off of the list. I hope I hear something at least before then. Even a thanks but no thanks is better than nothing. It’s just been a long process and I have to be optimistic it works out but if not it wasn’t meant to be. Good luck everyone.

                    Happed to me in 2016. I happened to send in my updated CPAT, and then I was informed by chance that i would
                    expire in a few weeks. And I never got a “thanks but no thanks “. Sadly, thousands want these jobs and enough will tolerate just about anything and any process to get them. Good luck
                    to all. Haven’t had a 2020 interview, doubt I’ll be moving on at all here.

                      From what my BI told me hearing nothing at all is a lot better then getting a thanks but no thanks letter. She told me that if you get a thanks but no thanks it means you had something on your background they didn’t like. If you hear nothing it means that you’re a good candidate but you don’t have an academy, Fire experience, medic etc.
