The application deadline for the 2011 Employment Process was Sunday, December 12, 2010. We received 5,108 applications for Fire Cadet (traditional) and 485 applications for Fire Cadet Senior (lateral). During the next few weeks, we will be reviewing applications to ensure they meet the criteria for a "proper application." We will be updating the employment process website with timely information as we move through the process: http://www.cityofaustin.org/fire/hiring.htm. This will include FAQs, CPAT tools, study guide, test day fact sheet, etc.
The written exams will be held on January 11 for Fire Cadet Senior and January 26 for Fire Cadet. For questions not answered on the website, applicants should submit their detailed question(s) to FireEmployment@ci.austin.tx.us. Due to the volume of applicants, please do not call the employment staff directly.
