    anyone know when the next psych test might be? For the poly you will have to fill out another packet full of questions about you and your past. Then they will go over the questions with you one by one.

    from what i hear they still hire even if youve done some bad things. For example im 20 and in my younger days i used marijuana, i even stole a bottle of champagne at work (worth only about $21). when i take that poly i will be truthful. is my chances still good to get hired though?

    I'm pretty sure that's up to TFR what their tolerances are on certain things for the poly. I guess if you pass the poly you pass, but if you fail then you already know the answer. How far along are you in the hiring process, and do you have a poly date yet? From what the polygraph gal told me they have been polygraphing quite a few people a day over these last few weeks.

    How is that gonna work? The chief said he wanted a class in November and then another in jan/feb. What are they gonna do- ram a bunch of us through the Psych & Medical exam in time for a class? At the rate they're going I highly doubt it....but I'm still crossing my fingers!

    I had heard this past August from the Capt a class in October, and a class in Jan/Feb. I've also heard they are going to switch to the national testing network soon.

    Well Oct seems to be down the toilet already.

    Soo does that mean a class in Jan and another in Feb or just the one in Jan or Feb? Is this gonna be a double large class or they are gonna cut down on the total # they're hiring...?

    Grrr...

    They already have an October class starting this month. I know people in that orientation. I don't know what the funding/budget is like for them, so i'd have to say how many they hire depends on that and a few other things. Yes this process takes a really long time and it sucks waiting... but some other states it's even worse when it comes to the civil service exams. I know the wait is totally worth it, so just hang in there a little longer . Keep applying else where in the mean time I guess. Yes it's frustrating everyone want's a really good job!

    I spoke to a Lt. yesterday downtown about the pysch eval, and that's what I was told. A friend of mine also in the hiring pool called downtown today and was told 10 people for January.

    They might have another orientation in Feb...I was told that a while back. I have no idea what's going on really. It's just what I was told, and what my buddy told me. It's only Nov now they can't just hire 70 people or w/e all at once . Yes the wait sucks...keep applying else where in the mean time.

    This just blows my mind. Why would they ask you about that. One of my friends said they asked him if he's ever thought about having sex with a family member.

    What type of drug questions do they ask you? Is it just what you've used and how long ago. How long do they want it to be since you've done anything?

    Apparently you have never got to the stage in being hired as member of a career fire department.

    Why would you think, if you do, that they would have asked those questions?

    Polygraph, physical testing is all part of the hiring process.

    No fire department will hire anyone who uses drugs, been convicted of any crime or engages in unusual sexual diversions.
