    How did you guys do? Parking was kind of screwball, but it was a good spot to do the test in. It was ran well; very fluid.
    The good thing about this job is that we have done so much, with so little, for so long that we can do everything with nothing...... which is what is wrong with this job.

    Heres the old thread for the portland test that happened last year.

    http://forums.firehouse.com/showthread.php?t=102567

    and I think about 2100 people applied think about 316 made and "unranked list."

    Just read the thread and you will get most of the information from there.


    Oh and the word is that Portland WILL NOT do a test in 2009.

    Thanks FireWA1, but this is about the Port of PDX, not the City of. Sucks that the City won't be testing this year, though.

    About 400 tested, 40 went through to the CPAT, which is being done jointly w/ TVF&R

    What's their interview process like? I heard the first interview is with 1 HR person. The guy that told me this didn't make it past this, so he didn't have any more info for me.

    How many are they hiring?

    Is it true that the people that get hired will be sent out of state for training?

    I didn't pass. Honestly I didn't expect to. Im not a fan of those types of test. I like the Ergometrics better. I can't believe that they had to go all the way down to a 85 to get the top 40 scores. I think that really says something about the test itself.

    I think that they have 1 opening at the moment and are probably planning on 1 or 2 more within the next 2 years. But thats just my guess.


    FireWA1, where did you read/hear that PFB will not be holding a test for 2009?
