    It is a personality test.

    This phase consists of a battery of non-medical written tests specifically designed to assess behavior and character traits to determine if an individual is suitable for employment as a firefighter. The written suitability tests are not pass/fail however, a Commission designated psychologist utilizes the assessment as one tool in their review to determine if an applicant is rated as “suitable” or “unsuitable” to continue in the screening process.
    Good luck to everyone. I am flying out in a few hours. I'm pretty excited to be moving forward. It really seems like positions and possibilities are starting to pop. I'm starting to get a glimmer of a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Don't sweat it. This was my first polygraph, so I was super nervous. The examiner had to go back over a few questions because I was shaky, but he said everything looked fine when we were done. I went into it knowing I have nothing to hide, but I've heard the horror stories (as I'm sure you have) where someone tells the truth and is somehow disqualified.

    I'm supposed to hear from my background investigator this week to give me the green light. He seemed like a pretty mellow/good guy. After we finished the BG interview he was telling me how much paperwork is actually involved on his side and how many cases he has. Needless to say I'm not holding my breath on hearing from him this week.

    The polygraph went fine and I was so relieved when it was over. I felt silly that I was ever nervous at all, although the whole experience is a little strange. Next week I have the oral suitability. I guess you guys from out of state are ahead of us in testing. Nice to know that the BG test isn't super high stress. I've got nothing to hide but I have heard the horror stories from other depts. Good luck, everyone!

    Does anyone know if they plan on having interviews? Or if they have in the past?
    I think I might have seen something about this on the chart that was in the email that was sent to us.

    They have done interviews in the past. Don't know much about them though. The only thing that I have seen on it is that it's not scored (I think there are 3 grades that they can assign the interviewee- not recommended, recommended and highly recommended or something like that). Also it's really late in the process right before they certify you for an academy and I heard that it's very formal (whatever that means).

    Maybe check the last thread from the '10 testing process to see if there's some info in there.

    Good luck!

    I got a call from my background investigator yesterday. Polygraph and oral suitability interview came back positive, so I am moving forward with backgrounds.

    Does anyone have any information on when the next academy is planned and/or how many they are looking to pick up from this list?

    I also heard that they will no longer be using the last list. And the reason this process is moving so fast is they just want to use the new list. I'm not sure how credible my resource is but they seemed pretty sure about it.
