    Interesting to see if it will be a behavior based interview or more situational.

    I have a call in now about the progression of the test......and as for what's going to be asked I have no clue other then most Orals have situational questions along with personal type questions...i.e. "What do you have to offer if hired".

    JayDudley, I ran in to a Medic on a ride along for medic school here in AZ that was a Long Beach Explorer and grew up in the area and knows you or at least of your name and spoke very highly of you.......small world, never know who your going to run in to.

    Thanks for your help on here!

    Default Long Beach Test

    Thanks AzAdAm.....I'm sure there is a few who I've ****ed off out there but it's nice to hear of those who I've helped and know.
    Here's the latest.......
    500-550 go to Orals to make a list of about 150 to go to Chief's Oral's.

    List of 75 with about 30 taking physical for first class after Chief's orals.

    A core of about 25 for first drill class and as candidates fail their physical a new candidate will be put in his/her place.

    This is what was gleaned from the last phone call and if there are any changes to this scenario I will post it......Good Luck to all.

    Hey Jay, by "list" of 75, do you mean we will be ranked in that list? If so do you know how they usually do it?
