Military officers overqualified?
To those of you who have been involved in hiring new firefighters, would a former military officer be seen as overqualified for an entry level firefighter position? I know there are many veterans who become firefighters but most of them were enlisted. After veteran's preference points and during the interview process, would being an officer actually be a disadvantage? Would you see a former Army officer as similar to a former Fire Officer applying for the position? At the very least would it be seen as strange for a former officer to be going for an entry level firefighting position?
