    any idea what the eavluation process is? I live in NJ, and don't want to be making several trips back and forth to Az if i can avoid it....... esp if the position will be filled by an already AZ resident.
    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

    Usually the written test (100 questions) is held on Monday. The physical agility and interview are held the next day (Tuesday).............Agility in the morning (8 or 9 AM) and interviews in the afternoon (after 1 PM).

    I'm from Southern California. I drove out for the first part (10 hour drive from Cal to Douglas). Then I had to come back a few weeks later to speak with the city manager and chief, for about an hour. When I was here for this portion I flew into Tucson and rented a car (2 hour drive from Tucson to Douglas). When I was here for this portion they sent me to have a physical with the doctor, give a urine sample, and submit fingerprints at the police department.

    I was on the floor two weeks later. The chief wanted me here sooner to start, but I had to go back to Cali and give my employer a two week notice and pack all my stuff and arrange for a moving truck to rent.
