    Question Interviews

    I am new to the board. I was wandering if anyone could help me better prepare myself for an upcoming interview, with a fulltime Fire Dept. What kind of questions should I be prepared to answer? What is the best way to answer those questions? Any opinions, thoughts, or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated.

    Courage04,

    I would check out Capt.Bob's website - eatstress.com. He's also on the boards in firehouse.com in many areas. I have followed his advice and it just works. A few years ago I didn't know squat about hiring boards or the process. With his info I scored 10th on one list and 3rd on my last interview before being hired. Before that I was floundering along through each interview.
    I wish you the best and be patient with the process. Just because one scores high on a list doesn't mean that you'll be hired overnight. Each department has their own process and budget issues also.

    Regards,
