    Default City of Cleveland Fire Dept 2014

    I'm going to roll the dice and take the test but I was wondering if anyone has or knows someone that already has taken the exam in the past that got hired on with out extra points added to their score ? It's 10 extra points for city residence. Just want to gather some more information to see if it's worth taking the trip to Cleveland. Thank you . Good luck to all in the process

    Military and residency play a big role 10 pts each I believe. You pretty much have to get a 100 on the written if you don't have either from what I hear.

    I read it's 5 points miltary given to your final score.i talked to someone in hr and they told me 1700 signed up for the exam , that's down from 2300 last time they gave the exam figure couple hundred don't show up for the exam plus along the process lose more people , just wishful thinking on my part haha

    10 points for residency is huge. Add the 5 military points and that an extra 15 points added to your final score. I thought the city of Cleveland got rid of the residency preference points system. I did not sign up for this exam, and being an out of towner, missing out on 15 extra points hurts big time. God speed.

    I live in the outside Cleveland suburbs and I am not even taking it. I have talked to people with some inside info and they said you better get a perfect score to move on. Plus it has been all over the news they are pushing for women and minorities. So I am 0-4 in things to help my chances haha.

    I did not find any information regarding pref for women or minorities . I now some depts have court orders to hire more minorities but I believe that's not the case with Cleveland fire. They are just advacting for more women and minorities to apply,with that being said seems like I don't have a chance unless I live in the city of Cleveland haha

    Supposedly we won't find out our scores until we complete the agility test. I haven't received anything about scheduling that yet though.
