    Really think we need to score mid 90's or 100. 2 interviews is the weird part because they need class to start jan in that just makes the process longer don't u think?

    Exactly my thoughts... either way better score as high as possible. I went through the study guide already, if you go through it quickly you will catch yourself making mistakes. Im guessing some people are not going to bother with it so when it comes to test time, might make some dumb mistakes.

    A lot of departments do two interviews actually, usually making it to the second interview means you are in a great position. He also mention he "hoped" to start a class by Jan...if it were urgent to get people hired, they would do it as quickly as they want.

    Even though it is the wish of the department to get things done quickly, many steps need to take place and involve factors out of their control. I feel that Jan or even Feb IS quick for everything that is needed. If there is to be a panel interview, the department members on that panel need to be scheduled to attend. Time has to be given for everyone to get all their background info in. All backgrounds need to be checked and some of that info is coming from current or previous employers that may not respond right away. Some steps such as psyc, final medical... require an appointment with a contracted company and those results take a bit to get back. HR needs to approve all potential employees and who knows how many days that paperwork sits at HR. Then most places try to give at least 2 weeks notice of starting. MB fire dept staff needs to prepare and set up academy and arrange schedules of those members teaching at it. A great deal of the beach's academy training occurs at Miami Dade's facility. They have to have the facility available for them to use too. So lots of steps and time in each one. Plus the holidays fall in that period and I can imagine the department is not spending 100% of its time on getting this process done. Just my thoughts

    The cognitive questions aren't what worries me, it's the personality/behavioral questions. Although there is no right or wrong answers, how you answer will significantly change your score. I've heard of this NFSI test, the candidness scale is serious.

    The cognitive part of the test wasn't bad. There was 5 or 6 questions that I had to think twice about. The personality questions were straight forward and I have no clue how they score that section of the test. Those questions will separate everyone. I took the City of Miami test on Thursday and it was almost exactly the same so it was good practice.

    Nothing yet.. I've been checking.. Since it's an out sourced test I assume it would take sometime.

    I've been checking too. Are they going to contact people by phone calls or email for interviews for people who scored well? And just putting scores up on our profile page.

    It's on governmentjobs.com. They don't have the ranks up, just the scores.

    I got a 94.16. Excited but not sure if that will be high enough. I went into it thinking you probably had to score in the high 90's to low 100's. I guess we will see once the rankings come out.

    Curious to know how those that got high scores answered on the personality portion? Seems like that was the difference maker.

    Does anyone know how many people the Beach is hiring. I thought during orientation they said 15 and maybe more. Can anyone confirm the numbers they are looking for. Thanks
