    Default thanks fire3

    Thanks for the info. How many steps are in the process..Written/physical/cpat/interview/pscy/medical. How many total (seperate) steps. Can I send a cpat and not take it there since it is supposed to be a national standard test? Thanks again..

    Go down a little and there is section that tells you all the steps in the process.

    As far as the CPAT, you might want to contact the recruiter.

    Just like stated in the previous post, your best bet is to contact the recruit division (704-336-2979) regarding the CPAT. Although, I believe you must be present for all steps of the hiring process.

    I have asked the question before about taking cpat somewhere else and was told that yes you have to be present no matter what.

    I heard today that they are going to have to have 2 different test locations for this exam. it turns out that there are more people trying out this year than in the past 5 years.

    Hey Gary, I just got a recorded message this morning telling me that the original test location has been changed and what I needed to do to confirm my registration. Are there going to be two locations or are they changing the location all together?

    I got a call today as well, informing me that the test was moved to the Westin Ballroom. I took a look at the Recruitment page on Charlotte's website and it had some more details. Everyone who registered before 1-28 will test 3-07 at the Westin. Those who registered 1-29 and later will test 3-14. Good luck!

    Default hope this helps?

    Hey Guys, in respose to some of the questions about the new testing location. I have heard from a BC of charlotte that they are having to change the location of the test to accomadate for the large number of applicants. the hotel can hold around 1300 people. since there are two test sessions its a pretty safe bet that there are around 2000-3000 applicants, more than any other testing year. alot of it has to do with the high number of job loss around the state and country and everyone trying to get on with a "pretty secure" job. they only hired 20 guys off of the 2008 process so i think this year is not gonna look good for hiring. best of luck

    UUUMMM I am pretty sure they are goin to need more than twenty this year they are already working on Station 40 in north east Charlotte. But yes the number of Apps. this year is crazy for them to have to have two different testing dates. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE !!!! If you havnt been through the process for Charotte the written test isn't bad but start getting prepared for the CPAT by running and working out .... you don't want to be one of the many that they have to stick with IV and fluids!

    Well considering they told us in the 2008 process that they were to hire between 40-60 and there is only one class of 20, i think its safe to assume that the number isnt going to change drastically. And that was with station 39 that just opened in december 2008. Now this doesnt mean they wont hire a significant amount of recruits. I know the past two years i have done the process they havent hired the amount they said they might or could. with this being said just make sure your papers are in order, your references are good. and go all out on the cpat. you only get on shot.
