      Made the trip for the 9am test. 240 sat on my test. They said the early test was for out of state testers, which included some from as far as CA. Just wondering how many other tests there were and how many in each?

      I was told they were looking to hire 25-40.

        I was there as well, as I was walking out it seemed that there was another test around 1 or so.

            With average of 240 applicants with 3 or 4 different test times(720-960 applicants guessing), I’m still wondering what the "lottery" system is for. Regardless, I’m sure we are all going to continue with the process either way, just curious. I’ve never seen this before.

              The updated sheet they handed out after the tested stated they would select "up to 400" So we'll see what happens. I would say the tests that included majority of locals was much higher than 240. And yes, after my test it seemed as there were people beginning to show up for an additional tests. I would say with allowing 2 1/2 hours they would do 3 tests. Otherwise that makes for a long day and a lot of overtime for VBFD staff.

                        If you look at the yellow paper they gave us after the written, STAGE FOUR is from April-May. My WAVE account still says I passed the written. All packets were due by April 1st so I’m not planning on anything until the end of April, beginning of May.

                            Yeah I saw this part, but I figured I would hear something as to if I'm selected to be part of the 400 to move on. I would surely think they would give notification with plenty of time before the testing dates... at least 1 month.

                            Just wondering if I was part of the 400 the computer "randomly" picked

                                Any changes? I checked my WAVE account this morning and it says "Passed test. Selected for further review." This mean I am a part of the "random 400" or does everyone’s say this?
