    Hey Junior AFPD did you ever think that by discussing current tests on line you are increasing the applicant pool and decreasing your chance of ever getting a job. most guys keep test information secret except to their friends. 1000's of guys could be reading your post and deciding to test against you. This is your career, your life, screw being nice to the whole world. But thanks for the info about public safety recruitment, I'll give it a look I'd never heard of that one before

    Where else should??? Joliet, Naperville........

      I think I was the final interview this morning. 21 people passed the physical. Chief Kimmerling said that they are hiring 7, who will go through an academy somewhere in the state starting early to mid-April. They still haven't released where you fall on the eligibility list though.

        Hey BENV17! Did you ever think that if you can't get hired for a job because a few more people read about testing dates online, then you're doing something wrong? The cream will always rise to the top. If you're the best candidate for the job, then it shouldn't matter how many other people show up to test. As far as "screw being nice to the world," I gurantee no Fire Chief will want to hire someone that shows that attitude, and trust me, Chief's do glance at this forum. Not to mention, if you do get hired, everyone else that gets hired that knows you said that are going to have a problem with you from day one. People rank high on hiring lists all the time, but get passed over because of their people skills. Remember that. This is a career Firefighter/Paramedic talking.
