        • Kobersteen,

          Does FF include an interview at the end of the process?

          It doesn't state it on the recruitment page.

          Thank you sir.

            Fairfax County only has open recruitment for the Fire Medic position. According to the Fire Chief, applications for FF/EMT will be open for one week, four times per year.

              There is an interview, but, unless things have changed, it is just to get information for the polygraph straight. It is near the middle of the process.

                        • What is the typical wait time for a paramedic? I finished the process august of 2013. Do I still have a chance? Or did they most likely pass me up?

                          • Fastedie from what I understand you are still in the process until you get the "thanks but no thanks" letter in the mail.

                            Have you tried contacting the recruitment office?
