    Default Pasadena Oral Board?

    I was wondering if anyone had any info or advice, or better yet previous experience with Pasadena's oral board process? My interview is next week and would truly appreciate any input!
    Thanks.

    The written was Oct. 17th and the first round of Oral interviews are going on this week.. I understand they tested about this same time last year? I'm not sure when they plan on testing again?? Good luck.

    Did you have your interview already? How did it go? I took mine today. The lady checking in candidates mentioned that 1,200 people took the written test and that they had scheduled 315 for the orals.

    If you haven't had your interview yet, it'll be a 3 person panel which will ask you 10 questions. Good Luck!

    Pasadena is a very well respected, traditional department. I would encourage you to knock on the door of the fire station and talk to the fire fighters. This should be a part of the prepartation you do for EVERY interview.
    Here is a link to a bunch of questions that will get you pointed in the right direction. Good luck in your interview.

    I called HR today and they said that the chief's interview is scheduled for the week of Dec. 15Th. and they are sending out information to applicants this week.. I received an email saying that I'm on the eligibility list, but I'm not moving on to the next round of interviews
    Good Luck to everyone!
    Cheers.
