    Default Central Pierce Fire & Rescue

    Did anyone apply for the Central Pierce Fire & Rescue firefighter job?

    I did and it seems like they are have problems with not allowing some later firefighters skip the written test. Is anyone else having this problem?

    That is exactly what happened to me. I will take the written exam though.

    I applied but heard there's a snowballs chance in hell of a brand new person getting picked up. I'll take it anyway, though

    Good luck to all that have taken the test. The rumor is that 4-6 RIF/Laterals could be hired. There is still backgrounds and "suitability" test for them. That means there will be interviews from the Entry Level Exam.

    I have also heard that a little over 800 signed up for the entry exam and the showings at the test were not as high as expected. That should give some hope.

    Once again good luck, its the Oral Board that gets you hired, the test is just a formality.

    Has anyone taken the suitability test? If you have, have you heard any news yet? How long does it usually take? How long does the background check take?

    Thanks

    Anyone heard anything about the second round of interviews for entry level?
