    @ gtcaptain2

    Thats good to know, at least i may be able to get to the test. How far did he get? Did they axe him after they found out he had a class a?

    Mine is that i was pulled over with city street signs in my truck (yes i had stolen them). I was 19 and im 27 now. other than that and 2 speeding tickets (last was 4 years ago) im squeaky clean.

    It looks like they are still taking apps according to the website. Arlington is a great department, but that minimum wage pay is tough when you have to go through EMT school.

    I received that in the mail but am hesitant because it isn't from the city. Still waiting for them to post details. Does anyone know if the Arlington test is the same our similar to ft worth?

    Got a quick question everyone. Their website states that the exam will be held at the Arlington Convention Center , May 17th at 6pm. They just updated that today. Has anyone received a confirmation email confirming they are invited to test?

    Hey blackrambo, I took the test as well and think I did well too but we will see may 31st. Yea and 30 sounds right. 68 are supposed to be retiring in the near future so a lot of opportunity for those who get on with this department

    Test went really well. The personality questions however were tough because I have heard conflicting information on whether to answer agree, rather than strongly agree, etc. Still lost as how to answer those...

    Yea paramedic in pretty sure the personality questions will make or break a lot of people because you just don't know how to answer those. Every department is different
