  • Plano TX FD 2010

    So Plano's written exam was last night at 6PM. Anyone else on here take it? They said that they expect to hire 4-6 people this year, then around 15 the next few years. They plan to start with the top 15 people. I am guessing there was around 300-400 people there, but that is a guess.

    I thought the test was more difficult than the last few that I have taken. Although the memory stuff was pretty easy if you studied it.

      Nope, no prerequisites besides 30 hours of college credit and the usual no criminal background stuff.
      Isaiah 43:1-2

      1 But now, this is what the LORD says—
      he who created you, Jacob,
      he who formed you, Israel:
      “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
      I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
      2 When you pass through the waters,
      I will be with you;
      and when you pass through the rivers,
      they will not sweep over you.
      When you walk through the fire,
      you will not be burned;
      the flames will not set you ablaze.

        I took the test, it wasn't too bad (except for that screw question). The list is still on their website from last year; using the same scores, looks like it will take a 97% or better to make it into the top 15 on the list. Sounded like 2011 and 2012 will be the years to test.

          I was going to test, but I realized I had an exam last night in Fire Academy and I couldn't come in early to take the Academy Exam. Two guys from my academy went, and in some ways I wish I had too. I would have been more likely to try if I knew I wasnt the only one missing class. I wish everyone who tested the best of luck, ya'll please keep us posted!

              I heard only 400 showed up? 800 were at Garland last Thursday, 2500 were apparently at Arlington, and I've heard claims of 6000 for Ft Worths last test. 400 seems like a pretty small turn out for a civil service exam.

                I was kind of surprised to see the lower turnout as well. Not sure why though, maybe people just didn't hear about it. I expected more, because I had heard that Plano is one of the higher paying departments in Texas, but I dont know if there is any truth to that. Anyone know anything about pay in plano?

                      I would have loved to test; however, I knew nothing about it. I look at announcement sites daily and knew nothing of the test!

                        I did not hear about the exam until the last day to send my papers in. I faxed everything in on time, but never heard anything back from them. Did this happen to anyone else?
