Hamilton Fire Department 2015 Recruitment

Postby RickHESFire » Fri May 02, 2014 12:39 am

The next hiring posting should be on line soon. The next information meetings are tentatively scheduled (and can change) for May 27 and June 3.

This is for hiring in 2015! The process takes about 7 to 8 months. The present interviews are for the summer of 2014 hiring. You will see the HFD most likely do 2 hiring’s a year for the foreseeable future as there will be a large number of retirements. I do not know if this will be a 1 or 2 year list. They have had 2 year lists in the past. The 2013 list was extended as they had way more people retire then was expected.

Thanks for the update.

Now the million dollar question. Is Hamilton sticking with their style of recruitment or are they going with the new OAFC testing? I guess it's only a $700 question. Thanks for any insight you might have

Seems like the old way.

A couple people in the other Hamilton thread mentioned that Hamilton had already booked Gledhill-Shaw to administer the CPS test in July sometime. If that's true then I think Hamilton will be doing their newest recruitment the same way they have done past recruitments.

Anyone have anymore info on this? Thanks!

Geldhill Shaw will no doubt be pitching every fire dept as to why they would be the better choice - otherwise they would be out of business. I cant see the OAFC style taking off, unless Gledhill Shaw just give up. And I cant see that happening.

Hey Finkle,

I've heard that Hamilton FD in running their CPS exam in July, so I'm guessing they will open up their recruitment within a few weeks.

Nothing official yet though, as far as I've seen. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Thank you Vigiles

I am checking daily now on my break at work.

I hope they post soon, the wife is tired of finding my cue cards from studying all over the apartment
