  • Knoxville Questions

    Has anyone been through Knoxville, TN hiring process? I have to fill out the background history packet and call to schedule an interview. Can any tell how the rest of their process works?? Thanks.

      Fill out the info packet, MAKE A COPY of it, and tuck the copy away for later. If you are lucky enough to make it through to the polygraph, the same packet is given to you to fill out. Any info/answers that don't match up is grounds enough to disqualify you for not 'answering all questions fully and honestly'. Oh yeah, TELL THE TRUTH! It doesn't matter if you are driving a stolen car and living in a house you bought with 'dirty money'....just tell the truth and you cant be hurt down the road.

      Unfortunately, (or forunately) all rests on the interview to come. It is basically a thumbs up or a thumbs down. Knoxville is super-political but a super place to work if you can crack it. Usually they look for things that make you stand out above the rest (i.e. Paramedic, prior fire service experience, etc...). Oh yeah, and that is after all the sons, nephews, and grandsons have been approved to continue--if you understand what I am telling you.

      The remaining process should be:
      Interview, background check, medical physical, polygraph, recomendation.

      Hopefully there will be a class in place by the end of the year.

          Ummm.....not at all. You have been verily misinformed. There are usually a couple thousand apply and there will be a class of roughly 30 candidates. It is still a tough process but your information is wrong.

              It was supposed to be that a class was to be in by November...but now it's looking like the first of the new year is more realistic.

              I would say you should hear something back around that same time....BUT, once you get your notification (i.e. You've been selected to continue.....OR.....thank you for your interest....) at this point, the process starts rolling fairly quickly. Polygraphs, Drug screens, Backgrounds, and physicals are all done within just a couple of weeks of eachother.

              You should hear either way (see above) something from your interview.....just be on the look out for it and hope it is not a "...thank you for your interest...." letter.

              -Good Luck

                    I had my Information Workshop today! I can't wait for academy to start!

                    Genesis3, I think today was the last workshop. If you have not heard anything I would call. You may be on their reserve list.

                    Does anyone that's going through the process in Knoxville want to get together?

                        No news on when academy will start. It looks like January. We still have to finish the background check and physical exam which will take a few weeks.

                              Have you gotten your physical papers yet to verify that you passed the physical? I am not really sure what happens after that I guess just waiting. I got my physical papers in the mail yesterday.
