    Default Glendale (CA) Fire Department

    I did a search and didn't see a Glendale FD thread. So here goes...

    Anybody else signed up to take the written test for Firefighter Recruit for the Glendale Fire Department (in California)? I'm signed up for both the FF Recruit and the Ambulance Operator tests.

    I understand the written test isn't just a simple aptitude test (like LA City's was), so I got a copy of the FPSI's 10th edition Candidate Test Preparation Manual, so I'm hoping this will be enough to help me pass (I don't have any other fire experience).

    Anybody know what the next steps after the test are? I presume it'll be an oral interview board for those that pass, followed by background checks and then the Chief's interview prior to job offer right?

    I said some really good points in mine. There were some answers I wish I could have changed. Not sure if it is good enough to move on to the physical agility. I can't see them taking over over 50.
