    Looks like this whole consortium was a bust lol. At least I got an interview with Bellevue.
    Renton is only using PST this cycle..there was another department doing the same, but they both plan on using this list down the road. When i was lookin at takin the test, i called every departments HR and spoke to them...

    If you have any interview questions shoot me a message..im pullin for you!!

      I added Renton to my PST scores and had interviews with every department I applied to except Renton which is odd since it says they're hiring 10+. You think they would at least do a rapid?

      I'm waiting to hear back from Puget Sound fire about my interview from then, but one question threw me off and it wasn't as strong, so I doubt I'll move forward with how competitive chief interview are to get.

        Did Bellevue send out rapid interview invites already? Thought they extended the application deadline to the 28th.

          I got an email saying if we filled out an application we will be getting a rapid.

            They were originally supposed to send out rapid invites on the 26th, but then I saw the deadline to submit applications got extended to the 28th. Haven’t seen anything in my email since submitting my govjobs application. I guess they should be sending out rapid invites next week after the holiday.

              Your application for Entry Level Firefighter with the City of Bellevue Fire Department has been received. If you were contacted by the City of Bellevue to complete the application, you will now participate in the next step of the process which is the "Rapid Interview".
              Please check your emails and any spam/junk folders for info from the City of Bellevue for your Firefighter interview scheduling and Microsoft TEAMs link that will be sent within the next 7 days!

              Thanks,

              Evon Hartmann

                Yeah I got the invite to apply to Renton. but then it was crickets after that. So dunno if they only took high test scores after all.

                    What would be the point of inviting people to apply?

                    At least with Bellevue if you got the invite to apply, you were gonna get an interview.

                      Any idea on how many they're interviewing for and hiring?

                        I heard Tukwila sent out Chief's interview invites yesterday. They're using the old eligibility list established last December. Not sure how many they're hiring or how many invites went out.

                          Not sure. My chief invite says 37 passed the first oral interview process. Sounds like two days of chiefs.

                            So Eastside scraped the WAfirecareers test and is going back to NTN because of technical difficulties. I wonder if that test will be valid for any department or if we should try and get a refund?

                              Yeah I got the email too.

                              Puget Sound sent another round of interview invites out so they were still using the consortium test.

                                Interesting. I never received it, but maybe because I already had a chief interview with them from PST or NTN?
