    Default Public Safety Testing??

    I doubt this thread will start since I have tried twice already.

    I was wondering if anybody has had any luck using public safety testing to get a job in WA? Anybody know what kind of scores it takes to be in the top 300?

    Do you know what department is coming up that is using them? Is it Kent?

    I know Kent has 16 openings already for next year, and Gig Harbor has 5.
    Did you test with Spokane?

    I took the test in '04 and the cut off score for that test was an 88%. I got a 97.4% and I recieved my ranking from Bellevue and I was #18 of 360 or so. I got called for interviews for four departments, but I never went because of some personal reasons. I don't know if the testing process is the same, but thats all the info I know.

    Default Not endorsed but...

    You have got to take their test. Especially this cycle since it is the list that should be going out to most departments that utilize them.
    I can think of 12 guys I know from Used-ta department that were hired from their test who now work for Belleview, Redmond, and Tukwila.
    You definitely need to score high (90's) to even make a first interview though.
