    Question Plano Fire Rescue

    I am wondering if anyone had any advice (without cheating) for Plano Tx hiring process. I am currently a paid firefighter in the DFW area but I have heard Plano is very hard to get into and they are quite picky in their process.

    -Thanks

    I tested in plano this past september. said they were gunna hire 20 and the top 100 had a good chance. Well I between 50 and 100 and havent heard anything. They took top 50. look back 10 or so pages and there is another thread on plano. I have heard bad things about their process.

    its long and drawn out like you said. physical agility is this saturday morning and we turn in our background packets when we get there. After u pass PAT its background investigation then poly and so forth...its probably going to be a long process being that the next fire academy at collin county wont start until August. So they have plenty of time to take their time so to speak. That's just my assumption anyway, but i know 3 to 4 guys that were in the top 20 that got hired on with Garland. so that moves me up some slots and that doesn't include any of the others in the top who withdrew for the same reasons as well. im also in the process for another agency and ive already done poly with them...next is background then oral board. so hopefully ill be in the same boat as those other guys with a job offer in the near future. i wonder why they only took the top 50 to the PAT when they said they would take the top 100??

    heard today that only 22 of the 40 that showed made it past agility. so hopefully they will take the next 40.

    captain told us this in the meeting b4 the PAT started...looking to hire 6 for august fire academy and then another 15 for next february. So don't know if they will use this year's list for next february or wait until they test again. He didn't give tht info. Just said 45 within next 3 years. I was in garland's and currently in dfw airport's process. Where else are you in the process?

    Hey guys! just got activated on here.. I'm also currently in the process for plano and what gtcaptain2 has been saying is spot on accurate. I guess it's just the waiting game for now. Hope to get a notification for the polygraph soon
