    Has anyone gotten an interview scheduled? I took my poly on 6/14/13 and going on vacation at the end of the month. Don't want to miss an important call while I'm out.

    Best of Luck to you all -

    keep us posted.. I'm guessing they won't start interviews 'til August. They're still doing polygraphs. Just passed mine yesterday

    Default Need a place to live during academy?

    Hey y'all,

    I have a house I'm about to rent out in Garland, about 15 mins from the academy, 3 bed 2 bath in a great quiet neighborhood. house backs up to a park has walk in attic, and shop area. I work up in 2 district and live about a mile away from this place so you'll be well taken care of. Feel free to give me a call or send an email if interested.

    Not sure where you are at in the math but remember dallas sometimes likes to but some time between academies , so people tend to drop out of the process

    Any word on when the next academy will be starting? I'm guessing interviews will be scheduled some time in August. It's getting closer!

    I talked with a recruiter from Dallas Fire and they told me the plan to hire around 80-90 total. And usually their first academy starts in Oct... atleast thats how it was for the last two years.

    Looks like I'm still in. I received an email about a week ago saying to turn in my employment questionnaire. I turned it in ASAP so now I'm waiting for board interview.

    Anyone have an interview scheduled yet? I heard interviews would begin in Aug.
    Good Luck!

    I turned my questionnaire in last week. The recruiter told me that there are only 230 people left in the process as of now and they are still eliminating folks for paper work , which is awesome lol. They said they plan to hire around 100 and that they want to eventually staff every station with a rescue ran by BLS and ALS which is great for the city.

    Cdoza- Is this your second time through the process?
    This is my second time. I was ranked 120 last year and praying i make the cut this year! feeling confident in my chance.

    Recio30 - This is my first time, but I've been working and volunteering in Dallas my entire life. I finally had enough college credits to apply this round. I'll keep trying until I get in. I have a couple good referrals, I'm hoping will boost my chances. BEST OF LUCK to you.. It's a long process, but well worth the wait.
    Any advice for the interview? Were the questions brutal?

    Oh ok gotcha.Good luck as well. This year anybody has a great chance to get on due to the numbers left. My cousin is actually a Bat. Chief for Dallas. it comes to show you how it all comes down to the interview now and its not the good ol boy system anymore. Don't get me wrong bc it does help some. My advice to you would be to stay true to yourself and don't sound mechanical. And depending on your history... they will hammer you with questions. Ive heard so many different stories from guys who interviewed last year.

    I am still in the process, as far as I know. took me a little longer to get my paper work in from my employers but its in. Just waiting to be called for an interview. I was in the process 2 years ago made it to the interview but didn't get in. Going to do the best I can to make sure I get it this time. Like what I am hearing about the numbers, sounds like everybody has a chance.
