            He is in the high 50's. I belive I read in the New Haven Register that he is 56 or 58.

              Letters went out on Wendsday. I went to HR on Thursday and looked at the list. There are 2 100's at the top of the list. I am ranked in a good spot. If they do use the list and with a little luck I may be able to get into the next class. If they do a second class like has been mentioned I'm in the front portion of that group. This is assuming that they take 26 for this class then another 20-25 for a second one at the begining of 08'.

              • How does this list work?

                Got mine today.
                The letter says there are 83 ranks on the list and that ranks go in descending order- if someone is in the 50's what does that mean? I remember one of the HR people at the agility saying that hiring/conditonal job offers would go out to every one out of three ranks. I'm not sure I understand how any of this works. Does this mean even if you are at the top of the list you have the same 1 in three chance as anyone else?
                Any light you guys can shed on this would be appreciated!

                • Has any one heard anything new yet? When and if they are going to hire?

                  Comment


                  • Still no word. I have heard rumors within the dept. that they may let the list expire after 1 year without any new hires and start the whole process over again. There are soo may rumors out there that I won't belive it untill it happens. I have also heard that the new contract requires minimum staffing and that they can no longer take engines out of service to cut back on OT. If this is true then thay will have to hire due to the OT budget being reduced this year. Only time will tell I guess.

                    • New Haven hiring on hold

                      See this article http://www.nhregister.com/site/news....d=590581&rfi=6 from the New Haven Register. Apparently the aldermen withdrew funding for academy classes.

                        • The fire union is very powerful. If they dont get to hire who they want, nobody gets hired. Consider this a dead issue, no one will be hired from this list. They will let this list expire after one year, just in time for the new fiscal year. Better luck next time.

                          • FFEMT99 it just isn't the Union. it also is the bleeding heart politicians who say there aren't enough minority candidates. So they will retest and lower the standards again!!! to satisfy the "makeup" of the city.

                              Some where in my material it says the list is good for 2 years. Does anyone know how many candidates are Ranked between 1-10?

                              • I heard that they were going to either throw the list out or let it expire.
