    I have heard end of August and beginning of November. I don't know which one is more accurate because they were both from reliable sources I know. I heard they don't start a new one until the current one is finished so it's probably closer to November.
    How many do they run per year?

    Good luck to everyone in the process! I have sat on the oral board and have seen the common pitfalls that close the door for the aspiring candidate. Feel free to message me if you would like help in the process. The resume needs to be clear, concise, tell a story and list achievements along with responsibilities. The panel has anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes to figure out if they want to work with you for the next 20 or 30 years.
    Nice copy paste. also Fairfax County doesn't do an oral board.

    Happen to know what schedule they work?


    "The county is divided into four battalions, which are responsible for 21 fire stations. Each station is uniquely equipped to serve the population with a combination of Engines, Medic Units, Trucks, Rescue Squads, Haz Mat Units and/or boats. Each station is comprised of at least one captain as the Station Commander who is assigned to the engine. All other apparatus have lieutenants assigned to them.



    While assigned to the Operations Division, one can expect to be assigned to one of two shifts; "day work" or "shift work."
    • Day work consists of 4 twelve hour days, from 0600 thru 1800, with one rotating day off during the week. This shift also benefits from having all weekends and Federal Holidays off.
    • Shift work consists of working one 24 hour shift, from 0600 thru 0600. This is followed by 48 hours off. Once a month there is a Regular Day Off (RDO) which give the employee a 5 day break. This assignment will work nights, weekends and holidays."
