    To reiterate what MichaelSm said I haven't been on long with the city either but we all do take pride in this dept. If you're just looking for a paycheck this is not the dept for you. Its a great dept to work for in a great city.

    Some say experience plays a role but i don't think so. My class was very diverse. At orientation you will receive a PAT practice and official PAT date if I'm not mistaken. The day you pass the PAT you get a paper with a date for your interview. Not everyone who passed the test will get called for orientation.

    I believe ya. I did and thankfully passed it ... But I'm definately not getting complacent it was hard work. But what Amazed at, is how many people didn't perform well on the pat. I would say from what I saw 7/10 people who attempted the pat failed. I assume will lose a lot of people at the PAT.

    Yeah man this by far is one of the toughest pat's for a dept. it weeds out the weak. It only gets harder. If you get hired you will do it every two weeks in the academy and in full gear. Keep training!

    O ok me too. But from what I understand after the interview you get place either on a A list and B list. While they continue to do backgrounds. Then the conditional offer and medical eval. Atleast this is what I've heard.

    My understanding is yes. But it all depends how many ppl they need and how many are on the A list. From what I heard only 92 people passed the practice pats. And this person also stated they highly doubt they'll have no more then 120 guys actually make to interviews for the 78 spots. My guess is if u pass the pat you have a good shot aslong as your other stuff is in order.

    Right after you succesfully pass the pat you will get a paper with an interview date. After all interviews they will calculate overall scored based on your written and inyerview results. Two list will be established. A band and B band. A band gets preferance. If they don't have enough people on the A band to fill the spots they will choose off the B band. Good luck!

    And backgrounds continue until your first day of the academy. And they continually keep checking your background while you're in the academy.
