    Havent heard anything, i just got my letter saying they are going to do the physical and exam at the end of april.

    Anyone know what the test is over? I've heard a lot of people say its hard to get into this dept? I am coming from Toledo Ohio and it is quite a drive so i was hoping for some input and also wondering if anyone knows how many they will hire?

    Thanks firefuss

    So this "written suitability test" is made of "fireteam" tests. This means all video? How many questions will they use from this and will they have any multiple choice on this test besides the fireteam tests? I heared that kind of test isn't very hard? Where do people get knocked out of this hiring process?

    thanks for any input

    That is so those who can't speak or write in English can pick a photo[s] that best suits the question.

    Right, which is why I'm sure it isn't actually Greensboro, NC. I checked out google maps and found that this district was very close to Greensboro, NC so that may be why it came up this way. Just thought maybe it would be of benefit to someone when I saw it at a glance.
