    Don't work for them, have tested in the past, last time about ten years ago.

    Have several friends over there, great place to work and if you want to volly too, there are several departments within a five minute drive to Fort Worth.

    OT is available often from what they tell me.

    Usually one or two classes of about 30 get jired from each test.

    And you gotta score high, last I heard, the class scores were 98 and above. If you are ex-military and a have a DD214, you get five extra points.

    The test isn't to bad and they should have sent you a study guide. ALL test questions come from that study guide, know it backwards and forwards, upside down and inside out.

    Been here for six years, and mongo is right about the test you have to memorize the study guide to have a shot. The last classes were a grade of 99 and up only. Overtime has slowed down since the last class graduated in November but it does come around. Personnally, it's the best department in the area. Good Luck!!!

    As for the test, I don`t know anything about it, living in a different part of a country. But, they`re hiring up here too, and with the huge numbers of people applying, if you don`t get a near perfect score, your out.
