Written Test followed by Agility -- Attire?
Just a quick question regarding attire...
I am scheduled for an 8am written test followed immediately by an agility test at 9am. Has anyone else had back-to-back tests like this, and what have you done for attire? My plan is to overdress for the written, then change for the agility. Thoughts?
This is for a volunteer position in a combo dept, where the volunteers go through the same sequence of hiring as paid: Written, Agility, Board, Background.

Wear something comfortable for the same testing. No sense to wear a suit or the like to take written test and then have to change to jeans and a pull over for the agility that same morning.
I'd wear something that looks good, but functional for the agility as well.
Save the suit and tie for the interviews.Stay Safe and Well Out There....

I think this is for my former department. I'll have to give a call to find out.
Dress to impress.

You might consider keeping a change of clothes in your car. You may have a chance to go out and change your clothes.

Not them. But similar scenario it sounds.
We had guys who had completed their physical agility to then have their oral board soon after that did a quick change into their suits. Even though they were still sweating, it made an impression that they were willing to do so.

When we have done this I usually advise the applicants to dress comfortably for the agility. They generally have a second opportunity to dress appropriately for the interview.
