Sounds pretty inconsistent to me. I would hope that individuals in the top 50 to 100 would be getting invites shortly for upcoming second interviews. Has anybody else with a higher ranking number received an invite for a second interview as well?

We might not hear anything until the end of the month, if this is the case. This is just speculation though, based on the meeting situation. Let me know if you hear anythi...

Thanks for the clarification Gmeg. That brings me to my next question, I will be doing my CPAT fitness testing this upcoming weekend for the tri cities joint recruitment, will the CPAT from Waterloo be acceptable for Ottawa, or does Ottawa run a stand alone fitness CPAT test of their own. If anyone ...

2nd Interview Numbers

I heard a rumour late yesterday that Ottawa has began issuing 2nd interview invites and dates to the top 100 candidates in the ranking. I do not believe this, but looking for confirmation based on the anticipated hire numbers for this year it seems a bit low. Can someone please confirm if any actual...

I am thinking this may be the meeting as well, that this hiring will be discussed at. We shall have to listen closely and see if any final budget decisions are made related to the fire department for the upcoming year. I imagine the agenda minutes will be posted on the website following the meeting ...

Short list to last for minimum of 2 years and calls to be made with job offers, once approval from council occurs in the New Year with the new budget. No exact numbers given on number of potential hires yet. Good Luck to everyo...

Not sure if anybody else heard anything from Chatham this week. The speculation of the awaiting council approval may be true, from what I have heard from different sources as well, but you would think with Chatham already being understaffed by 2 firefighters it wouldn't be an issue. Here's to the wa...

I haven't heard anything yet. Are calls supposed to go out this week or next week before Christmas? References haven't been contacted yet either. This is all I want for Christmas this year that's for sure!
