    I took their test awhile back, maybe 2006 and If I remember correctly it was the fire team video based test.

    Thanks, I searched a few different ways haven't found much. The fire team would make sense thank you. I hope it's that test, they just didn't make u register for it or anything like I have had to in the past.

    Scores aren't out yet, or at least not mine. If they want 200 and ~1000 tested I'd be hard pressed to think anything less than 93-94 would move on with a test like that.

    Should have been more clear, taking 200 to first interview. Projection is 10 for the first academy with maybe another 10 for a later but that isn't confirmed.

    I didn't think the test was that bad. It was one of the more difficult tests I've taken though. I received an 83.33 on it. They took 88.89 and above to interviews.

    Dang you just missed the cut off on the bright side maybe they will have you interview for the academy taking place in February. I felt the test format quite fitting was nervous going in not having a study guide and not know what would be on it.

    Anyone still in this? They're interviewing for an October academy again, first interviews are later this month. Curious if anyone knows more like how many were invited (there were over 200 slots)/how many they're looking for (email says recruit number isn't finalized but curious about dept need).

    I saw on their website that they will be testing again coming up in May. I will be coming from out of state to test, I have looked at their website and gained a little information on the department. I saw that they have 2 Medics and 2 BLS on every rig. Do they lean more towards Medics, also I noticed that Mesa Seems to have a lot of Minorities, is this the Norm for this department. Also do they like hiring Veterans? How big are most of their classes, and how many classes do they usually take from each test. Once you interview and if you are skipped over do you have a chance at another class and have to reinterview or are you dropped from consideration?

    2nd interview notifications are out but I think I'm the last on the forums in this process. To the above poster. You can miss an interview but you may be contacted for a later class of they want. Wasn't aware they were testing again, thought that was next year.

    No idea. I think I counted ~250 time slots for 1st interview but that doesn't mean they all filled and not everyone goes to the 2nd. I also asked if they knew how many they wanted but budget was still being worked on. I'd think it'd be like 100-150 left but we'll have a better idea when interview dates are out.

    If so, he's picking the wrong profession, the wrong state and even more so, the wrong city to work for. Shouldn't give a damn about race, gender, age, etc. You work for the fire department and work with the community, nothing more specific than that is needed or should be cared about.

    PFD should be soon. Just checked the site last month and it was the usual "not testing right now". Today it is:
    "The Phoenix Fire Department is actively recruiting. A testing date has not been determined at this time, but it will happen relatively soon. So start the process of becoming a Phoenix Firefighter early so you're ready for the test when it happens. Please check this site for information and updates."

    https://www.phoenix.gov/fire/employment/firefighters

    Hopefully it won't be relevant to me since I'm well into a few processes but there you go.
