can someone please answer my question about the panel interview? thanks!
Wear a suit with a tie. Hand shakes at beginning and end of interview. Be truthful and at all times look them straight in the eyes dont even glance away when thinking about an answer. The questions are basic they are looking to see if you would question a company officer and other stuff like that. Make sure you know something about the Dept. how many stations,how many calls, the port,highrise etc... Remember first and foremost there are a lot of people looking for work you were lucky enough to get to this point the last thing you need is the slightest bit of attitude and you wont see the next interview. The panel is very diverse and of all ranks throughout the Dept. They are some of the best F/F and Paramedics on the job and looks may be deceiving. I almost forgot no facial hair a very neat and trimmed moustache is ok but thats it keep those sideburns short. Last but not least if you do get hired be very involved with off duty events and the Union this will be your career you better make the most of it because nobody owes you a thing you have to earn it

Ok, I have my panel interview this week...So, how long is between panel, chief interview, 2nd background check, and poly? I could be wrong, but it seems they are speeding up the process a bit, because it seems they are going to hire soon...any help is appreciated, thanks!
Can anyone tell me how the polygraph goes? Do they refer to questions from your application or is there a questionaire that you fill out that same day? any answer would be extremely appreciated
It is good to see that Tampa is hiring, but I wondering when Hillsborough County might be hiring?
I also had my cheif interview but have not heard on the poly. Does anyone know the numbers that are going through this poly test? Is it the 36 discussed earlier or will they be breaking those up since 36 in hard to put through the class?
Any news Tampa brothers?
Hey if you guys that took the poly don't mind could you relay how long it took them to get back to you afterwards?
Received the call for the chief's interview scheduled for early November, I did my panel interview back in late july. Any word on what there hiring status is ? how many of the 36 have started ? Where are you guys at in the process? Any information would be greatly appreciated as i am very anxious to get back on the job, I was laid off from Lehigh Acres Fire after 5 years of service as a fire/medic, 2 of which were at Lehigh Acres Fire Dept.
Lehigh Acres laid off 35 firefighters out of 110 firefighters, the biggest 1 time lay off in florida fire dept history. Its getting really hard to get a job, I wish all of you searching the best of luck.
Thanks in advance!
