          • From what I saw on the thread from when they were putting together the September class usually they start calling a month out and I've heard they even still call people the day before the class starts

              Anywhere from 6 weeks out up until the day before recruit school starts.

              I'm hearing February start date with a size of 50. Rumors are rumors though.

              • I was looking at the pay scale...can anyone explain the pay scale....from the job announcement, the pay doesn't match up with any of the pay grades. $59,239.02 - $87,525.36 Annually is what the job announcement has it at. No pay grade on the F plan (which the county says is for uniformed fire and rescue) is right.....Also once a promotion occurs, how many grades do you jump up? If there is anyone who can explain this that would be fantastic.

                Thanks

                • Also waiting for the call! Got the completion letter last week.

                  If offered the job, I would be moving from Ohio with a wife and two kids. Anyone have any insight on good places to live initially?? Doesn't matter apartment or house or whatever. Just would need a place to live for I'm assuming at least the first year until we get to know the area and what places would be best for us to live long term.
                  Any advice would be much appreciated.

                    • Is there any kind of method to how an applicant is chosen? i.e are older files reviewed first, or is everyone grouped in the same pool?

                        Nobody knows what the exact process is on the selections. That is kept quiet between recruitment.

                          • About how long after the psych profile did you get your letter of completion?

                            Will I get some kind of notification letting me know how my psych went or will it just be the letter of completion?

                              I finished everything mid august, and didn't get my letter until last week.....That was the only communication that I had.

                                It will just be the letter of completion.
