    Columbus last tested before 2011 in 2006 and Cincy has talks weekly about laying off, so not any time soon. No they don't have residency points.

    I think the last Cinci test was 2008. But yes, they are a very unstable city to work for. The city government is in shambles.

    Well...that was a kick in the nuts. Passed physical but didn't pass foam despite wearing a suit and studying my *** off for it. Oh well...on to the next test. Good luck to those moving forward.

    It is a test CFD uses were you sit infront of a TV with scenarios and you act out how to respond.

    Yeah, that sucks I failed the FOAM as well. I thought I did decent, but I guess they had stricter scoring then I thought. I moved from NYC to SF while they were having study sessions, so thats on me. I am sure that would have helped, because I went in not knowing alot about the process. Good luck to everyone who made to the next step, go get it.

    Same here. Am I disappointed? yes, however, I prefer to look at it this way:
    I made it this far in the process on my first testing attempt at my first career dept, so if I can make it farther in the process each time I test, I can't be too far from going the distance

    I got a 79. Not sure if that will be good enough to hear anything back, but at least I'm staying on the active list.

    Dang, not a lot of great news so far. I've heard from two of my buddies, one is in the 70 band and the other didn't pass the FOAM.
