          I just submitted my app. Go to the Portland Fire website and there's a link there to the job posting.

                    I also applied, I put in for the Firefighter EMT-B/Paramedic position. What I find interesting is the written exam is the same for both, but for Firefighter EMT-B/Paramedic it is weighted 100%. While for Firefighter Trainee it is pass/fail. Why is that?

                          How's everyone doing with the reading material? Anyone start making up their own practice questions?

                            Read the info under "recruitment process" on the job announcements. You'll see what am talking about.

                              Yeah you're right, that's weird. I went to an informational meeting put on by PFR and they didn't even mention it there. They must just want to weigh the trainee candiates based solely off of their interviews. Makes sense I suppose, I'm sure there are plenty of folks out there that can do great on a test but can't actually do the job when it counts.

                                I'm hoping to get into a trainee position. Anyone have an idea how many trainee candidates will go to interviews after the passing the written?
