    I was expecting a lot more people to show up. The test wasn't bad.

    kyhunter,
    It didn't look like many people because there were 2 test times sat. One in the morning and one in the afternoon. They are also giving 2 more on the
    14th. They had around 3000 people sign up to take the test. Good luck to everyone who took the test this year. I thought the test was good.

    I thought there might have been 2 test each day, but I wasn't sure. It doesn't matter to me how many people test. You can only do your best and hope that you rise to the top.

    I also thought it was a good test, My hat is off to the Charolette Fire Department, I thought they were very organized, and did everything in a timley manner.

    What did everyone think of the test? Did anyone hear any new info while at the test as far as time frame, numbers being hired or anything else while they were there?

    I know the chief told our session (3/7 am) that there is a lot of people and it's gonna take a long time but was not sure if anyone actually struck up any other conversations when they were standing around.

    A guy that tested with me counted 16 people per row and a total of 29 rows. Do the math and thats 464 for one session and there were 4 sessions. I don't know how accurate his estimate was. I know I counted 16 per row, in the rows around me, but I was all the way in the front. I could have varried a little in the back. I would guess that there probable was about 1800 total, but that is just a guess.

    I did not believe the test was too difficult.Lol I had to really tune in on the listening and memory part becuase I was going on like 3 hrs of sleep. But I do not believe the test was too bad. Anyone know when we should start hearing back from them about our results?

    Default I haven't heard the results of my written test yet.

    What kind of background do you guys have? Do you'll have emt certification, cpr training, or volunteer experience? I have a degree and solid work experience managing people. I was actually in charge of safety and efficiency for a warehouse. But, I have no fire or emt experience. Do you guys think I stand a chance? What can I do to improve my chances by the time selection comes around?

    You should hear results within 4-6 weeks of the test date. They said it may be through the mail or by email.

    I passed. I'm scheduled to practice my CPAT on May 26th. I wasn't expecting to get three chances to pass the CPAT. Hopefully one is all that I need.

    No letter yet. I love seeing fat and overweight people and also people that think they are cool try to pass the CPAT. Not making funny, but if you want the best job in the world, get off your *** and get ready if you never did the CPAT.

    Got my letter that i passed too. Charlotte doesn't give test scores. Only pass or fail. They don't have a ranking system. As long as you continue to pass, you are considered in the running for hire. Good luck to everyone this year on the CPAT.

    I talked to someone of pretty decent importance yesterday and he said they cut off the number of applicants at 2,800.

    Just wanted to congradulate everyone on passing the written test and moving on to the next step. Unforunatly, I didnt see the automatic disqualifiers on there website and even though I passed the test, I cant move on becasue of a Dui that happened a little over 2 years ago, which im very ashamed of and disapointed in myself of. But on a brighter side , just wanted to wish everyone good luck on there way to getting a badge , and one day I hope to join the rest of ya.
