    A friend of mine that works there says they are hiring another 200 due to about half the dept being eligble to retire and about to start. Rumor is each station will now have 2 rookies.

    Default April 2nd Civil Service Exam

    Got my study book, and am ready to go. Good luck to everyone else who is testing.

    That was my biggest fear with the whole application process. I ordered my transcript with no tracking, and then went back and ordered a second with tracking. Even though I paid twice, I felt much better being able to track when it got there, and who signed for it.

    Did anyone go to the mentoring program on sat? It was a blast and a good workout if you did all the evolutions!

    To anyone that goes in the future, make sure to take a gallon jug of water, i didnt bring enough. And bring a backpack or something to put your stuff in, I took off my hoodie and put everything in the pockets and when I came back it was wet. Just fyi

    Wow..First I have heard the 200 people rumor.
    I keep hearing 85 but that would be cool if they did another 200.

    Hope everyone is doing good on the test. Does anyone have any parking advice? As in where is a good spot and how early to get there to get a good space.

    About how many people are in the room testing at one time?

    I'm going this Saturday and am glad to hear it's a good workout. I'm also going to get a good idea of where to go on Monday. I bought a generic civil service study guide at Half-Price Books and have been taking the practice tests they offer.

    I have been trying for sometime now to get a ride along with a fire dept in the DFW area with no luck. I first tried Dallas but was told it was not possible seeing how I am currently in the application process. Then I tried Frisco but was told they do not allow ride alongs. I thought about sending someone a e-mail with another dept but most of the emails I can locate on line are for high ranking folks and don't want to ruffle any feathers. Then I thought about just randomly stopping by a fire house for info but I don't want to over step my bounds. Please help me if you have any advice on this matter. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I checked my status on Gov't jobs and my status changed to placed on eligible list. I'm hoping this means I passed the written test. I won't know for sure until I get an official notice. Anyone else have this status? Thanks in advance.
