Eligible Hire List FAQ

Can I review my panel interview notes?

Portland Fire & Rescue's selection documents are not available for review.

Is there any way to get feedback about my panel interview?

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide individuals with feedback about their interviews.  We will be developing workshops that may focus on interview skills and encourage you to attend the free workshop. 

How many candidates are on the final eligible hire list for Recruitment 2019 - 00228?


Can I get more information regarding the Fire Chief's Interview?

Fire Chief's Interviews will be conducted prior to the start of a Fire Academy and only candidates being considered for that specific academy will be contacted by email. Candidates will only be invited to the Fire Chief's interview in ranked order as vacancies occur. The Fire Chief's selection panel will interview candidates from the final ranked eligible hire list (candidates who have successfully passed all prior evaluation steps). Fire Chief's interview is pass/fail.

How many fire academies does Portland Fire & Rescue anticipate in the next 24 months?

The start of an academy is dependent on vacancies and budget.  The first projected academy will start November 2019.  Dates for future academies have not been determined.  Please check the website frequently for updates. 

How will candidates on the final eligible hire list be notified if they are being considered for a Chief's Interview?

The Recruiting Office or Human Resources will contact candidates by email. 

Who do I contact if I need to update any of my personal information; phone, email, address?
