    Default pfd driver

    Does anyone know what is required to be a driver for the pfd. I was told it does not matter if you already have a cdl and I would have to take the pfd test

    There is no seperate "driver" or "apparatus operator" or whatever in the PFD. Everyone drives and everyone rotates into the driver seat. Yes you have to take the PFD test, and you will be rotating through all positions on a regular basis.

    Default Wsi

    From the job posting: "The WSI portion of the exam is designed to measure important human relations skills that are necessary for successful job performance. There is no study material for this portion of the test."

    I was wondering if anyone has ever taken the WSI, and if you have any insight or advice.

    from what i heard there is no "correct" answer to these questions they are left up to the "discretion" (which is never good) of the moderators otherwise this is a new testing process for the city and i have never heard of it

    from what i hear the first part of the testing is just pass fail thats it the city is dumbing down the process as much as possible

    From what I have researched, how it goes with a "combo test" of this type is the first part (study guide) is pass/fail, and then only those who pass Part 1 are placed into bands according to their scores on Part 2, the WSI test, for which there is no study guide. But who knows for sure....

    Scary. Who does the hiring, Philly HR, or the Department?

    I could be wrong, but I believe it is up to City HR to test, compile the list, select and notify candidates, run the candidates through the hiring process, retain them if they successfully pass all the hiring processes....Once all this is accomplished, they are then "turned over" to the Fire Department.

    Guys or ladies,

    Can someone please help me with a quick question?

    I know the test is scheduled for the week of November 14th, but I was just wondering if anyone had any details/ideas on when they will bring in the first class after the test?

    If I remember correctly, my buddy waited 3 years from the time he took the test to the time he was brought in for a class. If that is true, hopefully that is not the case for this go around.

    (sorry if this question was previously answered in a previous post)

    Thanks,
    John

    you never really know when a class will be brought in but in june (i think) of 2013 there is about 130 or so guys going out in that month alone so they will have to get a class in before that you would think. And the test booklet useally goes out some time about two weeks or so before the test
