Thread: Chattanooga Interview
07-01-2009, 09:49 PM #1
First i want to say: sorry I haven't been around. Been havin' some economy issues. But hopefully things will start looking up. Missed the forum good to see old faces and new as well.
Second: So I applied to Chattanooga Fire Department and now I've made it to the interview process. I'm very excited and nervous, obviously. I didn't think I would make it that far. So I'll be proud no matter the out come.
My question to everyone is does anyone have any suggestions for the interview. How should I prepare? What should I wear? Have any ideas what they are lookin for? How nervous were u when u got ur interview? What mistakes did u make that I should look out for?
Anything will help. Thanks

You should defiantly use "u" instead of "you" when filling out your applications. Make sure the employer knows of your hipness within the internet community and reiterate it with short phrases like "ur" and "OMG im so ging 2 b thr ltr." I think you'll really impress them. Just my .06 cents. WTF du eye no thuh.Greater love has no man than to lay his life down for a friend.

There is a lot of information around this and other boards that can help you. Please understand that all of us had to work hard to get where we are at can I refuse to just spoon feed you the answers that you should be doing the leg work for yourself.
Please so some searching, talk to people and some homework. The answers are out there, we (alteast me) will not just had the keys to you. Please break a sweat on your end.
First, in terms of the interview, let me ask you- Why should I hire you?

I think a nice suit is always in order. Something conservative, respectful. Best of luck. Pete
