    Finished the 8am session. 202 people there. Any idea how many sessions they are having or how many applied?

    My guess would be around 1,000 applicants, but who knows. Let us know if you find out.

    I was in the 1230 testing session they said 1300 applications were submitted. Less than the front half was filled up from my session.

    I tested at the 8am and if I counted right they had seats for about 475. With less than half showing up, I would say about 1000 applied and about 400 or less tested. Like the other person said we had 202. I'm from Missouri so I am sure glad I can take the CPAT by my house. How does everyone feel they did I myself think is wasn't too bad but we will see next week.

    Either way...400 or 1000 testing. Still better odds than I expected. Especially considering it's to my understanding the written cuts out approximately 1/3 or more..

    I was at 8am session also, like always va beach does a really good job huge props to their HR dept. I've been to so many test and it's usually a Cluster, VAbeach has there stuff together. I thought it was really awesome that the Capt took time to answer questions after the test I was in the group who was talking with him. Just really overall a great dept and super happy I made it down for the test.

    Do you listen? At the test they said a week and a half. Man, if you can't understand that basic info imagine what you would do on an emergency scene. LISTEN

    Really man? Look everyone on this thread either is trying to get a job with VBFD or is someone who can help answer questions regarding...no one is here to get argumentative. His question proves nothing of his value on the fireground. You don't know, he may have very well been in the restroom when she said it, or filling out the survey, or maybe he just didn't hear. Better yet, he may be just attempting to make conversation with his prospective future coworkers. So unless you have any valid input regarding the process or a legitimate answer for our fellow brothers questions, take yourself somewhere else. No one wants to hear that crap. And the only "dumb" question is the one you leave in your head...

    Wow what a great first post in here.

    Easy up Francis. Most of these guys applying have more time in the chow line than you do on a computer.
