    Default Fort Worth hiring

    I am a firefighter in San Antonio who has tested with Fort Worth and am wondering when they are planning to have the physical test. My ranking is number 106, thanks for any help.

    why would you want to change from San Antiono to Fort Worth. Nothing against Fort Worth... but thats downshifting

    JHR - You have to downshift before you speed up!

    They had 2 or three days of testing this past week. I'm not sure if they are done, but they usually only need a few days per class. The bad news (for you @ # 106) is that very few will fail the physical, the good news is that from what I've heard they should be hiring 2 classes from this list.

    I can get some more solid info next week if you still need it, just let me know via PM.

    Thanks a lot for the info cowtown. Anything you can tell me helps. Any idea of class sizes?, do I have a chance at #106? Thanks again.

    You probably already have this info, but the city has already processed the first 75 and if the 2nd class is held to 16 as they say, then they will not need more. If the 2nd class needs to be upped to 24 like the first, then they will process the next 50 applicants. I hear they are doing about 2 for 1 right now.
    Sorry it took so long - hope that helps!

    Thanks again cowtown for the info, I can only hope for a bigger class. Are they having only two classes? Because when we took the written test they told us there would be three classes off this list. Thanks alot.

    I've been processing for the first class and things have moved really well. Out of all the FD's I've ever tested for this one is the most organized and structured. It sure makes the normally exhausting process, seem more pleasurable. I know as of now, we are all getting ready for Oral Boards and such, so there isn't much left to do. Will let you know if I hear anything.
