    I got a 70. I read that a 70 is high school diploma with no college degree and a score of a 90 means you have a degree, something along the lines of that

    yeah bro, I have no idea how many they are hiring. Its funny because I know people who work for every department around here but I dont know a single person who works for Tampa lol Ive been doing alot of research on TFR and trying to learn as much as I can about the department, but, I still have some questions about a few things, like staffing, salaries, retirement, etc.

    I mailed in my background as well July 9, I got a score of 70 it said that includes 5 points veteran preference.. my lowest score on the exam was 75% on mechanical 80% on the video and 95% on both math and reading, so how that averages out to a score of 70 with veteran points is beyond me. Have any of you received anything since sending in the background packets?

    That score has nothing to do with your FireTeam exam. 70 means your highest level of education is high school and a 90 means you have a college degree.

    I haven't heard anything. Their hiring process is pretty lengthy, it even said that in the background packet. I was told the whole process takes about 6 months

    Hmm interesting, and I doubt anyone has heard back yet, seems too soon. The wait is killer though

    I must have been the last deadline for the packet . The wait is terrible , I wonder how many applied . I'm not a medic , but i know someone who works for them . So hopefully that helps

    I finish medic school Oct 2, but i do not know anyone that currently works in the department.. That may be an edge for you who knows, but I wouldn't go on that, that's for sure.

    From reading the older posts on this forum I would say you are correct, even after hearing something back it seems like it is a long wait between each step. =/

    If you notice on the City website they are accepting applications for paramedics (in house) Aug 12 and their test date is Sept 10, this is probably why they are opening up for hire again to fill in the positions of those that advance. Just a guess.
