    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).

    Thanks Fire49 I didn't know that.... Hence the sarcasm. I heard the thunderstorms are awesome the people are really nice and to be honest California is great but I want to experience something new and represent a respected department.

    For someone like me, that's the exact point! I'm over California. Sure, I'll miss the weather, the geography; but that's about all California has going for it, really. My aunt lives just outside Dallas (Wylie) and I've visited there a number of times; she'd never look back to CA.

    Anyways, back to the interview panel (if you don't mind), as I'm still a little confused. When you say "non Dallas firefighters" will be on the panel, does this mean there will be firefighters from other agencies? Or simply privately hired individuals? I've interviewed with other departments where there were local agencies on the panel (who were firefighters). I'm just trying to get a better understanding of what that might mean. Thanks!
