    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

    Keep this thread alive! The process is moving quickly.........1.5 mile has already been completed.

    Anybody have any ideas on how many people are left in the process? There were some people in my batch that failed. Also....do the bib numbers correspond with the rank of an applicant by any chance? I talked with some people and it seemed if they scored higher, they had a lower bib number. Maybe just a coincidence...


    Next thing is PAT and then interviews!!! Any suggestions on the kieser sled?

    thanks!!

    I believe i counted about 15 or 16 total people who failed the run...an average of 5 per group. So thats around 235 left in the process if you assume all 250 made it to the run and the orientation. Im ready to knock this PAT out the way I know that

    Awesome, Cap!

    I'm sure some people didn't make the run or orientation so...all the better!

    So are we scheduling interview times right after we pass PAT or how is that going to work?

    there is no practice PAT for this years test.....the PAT seems to be pretty easy. first two parts should be a piece of cake.

    rumor on the streets is that this year is going to be a fairly big class compared to other years.

    as far as panel interviews go...i believe you schedule those after the PAT.

    anybody test with AFD before? how were the interviews like?
