Re: Edmonton 2020

It is a little different of an experience. I wasn't a fan of having to stop pay way through to readjust the Webcam.

Thanks for the physical test information.

As for this year's process, my profile says that the application has been approved and I'm invited to the aptitude test, so it lo...

Tis the month to apply for the Edmonton application process, get your resumes in. It looks like they're approving people quickly this year.

Good luck!

Yes it looks like they’re going ahead with 2020 recruitment. My concern is are they just erasing the 80 2019 hopefuls?
Based on my conversation with the HR representative (probably one of the better sources of info I've talked to), the answer is no. Just more waiting.

Re: Edmonton 2019

In English, is it's reducing the planned expansion for the next couple of years. I spoke with the HR representative in person at EFRS open house yesterday. All she could say is that they're waiting on the city still. They don't want to give false hope to people and then have the hiring cut last minu...

Re: Edmonton 2019

Thanks for the info and checking with HR! That's way more than what I've heard. A friend who works with EFRS said the following about the budget cuts: "No hasn’t affected me directly but I know it has reduced the expansion they wanted to do in 2021 of 25 new positions in addition to annual attrition...

You still dont have an eligibilty list? Its usually out before the end of the year, anyone call HR?
This is my first time making it this far in the process, don't they typically not like people calling HR for information? Or have I been given bad information?

Re: Edmonton 2019

Too true, I haven't seen any information on how the Edmonton Fire Service was affected by the budget. Has anyone heard anything? Any guesses when we will get word of the Eligibility List?

Re: Edmonton 2019

I heard 80ish did station assessments. The captain I assessed under told me the same number. A chief who was visiting informed the station that he has 60 retirements to fill, but who knows now with what's going on with budgets and stuff. Has anyone received an email stating something about potentia...
