    I Got a 120 on reading, 117 on Arithmetic- hoping these are good enough.

    My understanding is that you cannot retake the exam, as per my proctor.

    Thanks Jamison.

    For anyone who is interested, I found the statistics covering the prior years of hires very interesting on the PDF Document at the end of this page very promising, if the years in question are any indication of what this hiring list will resemble. Lets cross our fingers!

    2013: 31 Hired to date;
    2012: 121 Hired
    2011: 151 Hired
    2010: 51 Hired (from prior list, no exam given that year)..

    Scroll down to the pdf, and then its on page 33:

    I tested in 2012. DFR picked up 90 that year. Not 121.

    I'm not so sure. I think they're talking total hires, which spill even into following years. The hires that year may not have been from the 2012 test only. Its an official document too.

    Thanks. Can you let us know how the polygraph goes for you? I've done 2 before and did well. I'm just curious.

    I haven't heard anything, but looking at the past years threads, looks like things can take a while.

    Looks like there's only 400 guys left in the process:
    "Recruiters are currently processing approximately 400 TFRO, and 299 TFPO applicants."

    I got the call about a week and a half ago for my polygraph. its scheduled for August 8th. The statement about processing 400 TFRO was posted on the website before we took the Math and Reading and the CSPAT so i betting thats not the current number. i am very curious to know how many are left though. i also heard they are hiring a interview panel for the first time this year. anyone know anything about that?

    I'm out of state and already have taken my polygraph and passed. I've heard that they're hiring an interview panel as well that will be opposite of a normal fire interview. Good luck!

    JT and Jamison-

    Can I ask what you mean by 'hiring an interview panel'? Do you mean it will be comprised of HR?

    I'm also out of state (CA) and took and passed the poly already.

    My understanding is that the interview panel has always been made up of Firefighters.I have heard this year they are hiring an outside interview panel( Non Dallas Firefighters). I have no idea if thats fact. just somthing i heard. i was scheduled to take the poly in August but got a call today that it is moved up to Late July at a diffrent location.

    Late July?! Ouch. I was hoping my interview would be scheduled long before then.

    I heard from a friend that works for Dallas that they are hiring an outside source to conduct the interviews. I don't know if it's a full go though. I am from CA as well. Good luck to everyone.

    Thanks for the clarification JT.

    Jamison, I'm not a medic. You? What part of CA you from ? Maybe we met at the CPAT?

    Hmm. I don't recall meeting anyone from Ca that day. I was in the morning exam. I'm in the IE, but on the OC border (Chino Hills).
