    Default Call Back

    I took the CPAT and Oral last week. Sunday me and my co-worker both got call backs to go for the Psych test and interview.

    Does anyone have any info on the background. Or and any idea how many people get dropped through the rest of the process.

    Nope. I withdrew from the process (you're welcome). I decided that I really don't want to live in the vegas area.

    Congrats on the callback!

    I know it's a great department, but I just don't want to live in the greater Las Vegas area. It's just not for me. I'm not going to work somewhere just because it's a good job - I have to want to spend the next 20 years or so in that area as well.

    You do know there is more to Vegas than the strip, right? You do know there is mountains, national forest and snow in Vegas, right?

    The place is awesome and alot of people do not know Vegas that well. I would love to be a FF for the CCFD.
