Got so bad I had to head out to the bathroom after signing a waiver saying that I was missing a part of that test. Luckilly I still could hear somewhat in the bathroom and didn't miss much. I wanted to die I was so embaressed.
    That's actually kinda funny. i didn't see you leave during the audio, but I was in the same boat. I avoided coffee, opting instead for 2 16 oz. Red Bulls. As soon as I sat down I was feeling it.

    I rented a room at the Park Inn, so it was less than a 5 minute walk to the test site in the morning. I live about an hour South, and thought this would help me get more sleep by avoiding the drive in the morning. Wrong. I was juiced from anxiety/nervousness, and still wide awake at 1 AM (hence the 2 RB's in the morning).

    Good call on the Mud Hens park. I didn't go in but stood at street level in left field for 3 innings and could see fine. Very nice park.

    Reading through the Toledo thread from the last test, it looks like they did background checks on 3 people for every one they were gonna hire. So if they do it the same way this time we should be looking at 75 people getting background checks. I'm thinking I scored right around 90%. What score do you guys think will get you inside that first 75?

    Any idea how long they will hire from this list?

    Does the incoming casino figure to add tax revenue to city coffers?

    When I took the 2001 test, they called me in 2006 to come in for an interview. Due to my husband retiring from the Army and taking a fire job in Arizona, i turned down the interview. I did't think the list would be used as long as it did. So as for how long it's good for varies.
    I'm pretty sure it would as it's a business and it's creating 3,000 new jobs. With those new jobs, people will start spending and therefore more tax revenue will be coming in.

    They have the results of the police test on the HR website. I know the test's are probably quite different, but a 95 would put you 6th on that list. Let's hope a 95 will put us near the top of this one as well.

    Can anyone tell me how many points we get added for military? Also, do they add these points to the written test score or is it added to a later test, physical etc ?

    Just a few more weeks.

    Hi! I think it's 5 points if you have your DD214. As to where they add the points to, I think it's added to the written. You may want to double check on the website or call HR just to make sure

    I just went throught the process last year and I'm pretty sure the people who had the points, had them added to their written test score. Hope this helps.

    I can't believe you guys are all ready speculating what score you might have gotten.

    Word on the street is that they have the results and are just waiting to mail them out. Supposedly they are finishing the Lt and Capt promotions before sending the test results out.

    Just some scuttlebutt I got at Toledo ER.
