        Anyone find out how many applicants? Wondering if more than one time was setup. Mine started at 1 and just ended.

        got a rough count of 225

            Heard emails went out for those that did not pass written exam. Church friend’s son did not pass.

                    Had my interview yesterday. Felt it went good. How’d everyone else feel about there’s?

                    did hear during the CPAT that several lateral transfer positions will be made. Friend from Brownsburg is going through process for transfer even though he’s beyond the age of 36 which is a rare occurrence

                      One of the instructors at ESEC retired from the Sheriff's Department in 2002 and then joined Avon FD and I want to say he told us he was 44 when he did that, so it's definitely possible! I think the only requirement on age is you have to be enrolled in to the Police and Firefighters PERF before you turn 36.

                        My interview was Tuesday afternoon. It was my first time ever going through a fire interview. Honestly it felt a little terrifying. The guys were straight stone faced the whole time. I think I did pretty well on 4/6 questions.

                          Yeah, man, I felt that going through Hamilton County. A friend of mine is a Chief at White River and he was like; "Shake their hands before and after the interview, it will go a long way towards helping you not feel nervous and they'll appreciate that." 2 out of 3 shook my hand, one guy just gave me a fist bump and that really threw me off for the rest of the interview. That being said, don't worry about it. You're gonna kick yourself after an interview and come up with a perfect line a few hours later. I think they can tell the difference between an honest answer and an answer that was canned, they want to know how you think on your feet. I know that when I got out of my interview and replayed my answers in my head I was thinking; "Dude, you sounded soooo stupid." If you gave them your gut answer, and you know it was right, just go with that. There's always next time if you don't get picked up this time around. I went to a training event that my alma mater Columbia Southern sponsored down in Greenwood, 90% of the room said that they didn't get hired on their first test. You got this!

                            Very rare to get hired first time, BUT it’s possible! So good luck Price.

                            honesty is good. But I’d suggest researching how to properly interview with panels. There is proper structure to answering questions. More precisely, there is a grading structure each chief will have in front of them. Whether they utilize it during your interview is at their discretion.

                            study but don’t let it compensate who you are. Being yourself in an interview is important but so is preparation. It’ll show them a glimpse of what they can expect when hiring you.

                              Thanks for the replies Urb23 and apojacks. I was definitely honest with all my answers and didn't think any sounded canned. I was all over the internet a week ahead of time finding prep questions to help frame my answers and get an idea of what to expect.

                              Oh and I did shake hands both at the start and end, so +1 point, haha.
