    Damn. I got a 90 and no interview :/

    Wonder what the cut off was? I can't ever seem to meet the cut for Puget Sound lol.

      Not sure. I scored a 96 on NTN and didn't make the cutoff for a few departments. Some departments interview 180 for 2 positions (accidentally cc'ed applicants) to 20 interviews for 3 spots (I had to cancel that interview due to conflicts). Trying to figure out how they hire is silly.

        I made the cut-off with 95. This game is always hard to play, but it must've been a high scoring test this time if you didn't make the cut with 90. Based on Eastside's website, Eastside is planning to do interviews off this test too, so I'm guessing you'll definitely be in the running for that one. In the past, they've been pretty liberal with inviting everyone with a passing score to participate in a rapid interview before moving to oral boards.

          Yeah I got an interview with Eastside last time with an 80.42%. Moved on with Renton with an ~82.xx% (both PST), so I'm curious what Puget Sound used for the cutoff for this test

          Seems like every department that uses the FPSI test has a really high cutoff (West Pierce, Central Pierce, Tacoma)

              Yep got that one.

              That turnaround time is super quick if you move to second round interviews...especially if you're from out of state

                Yep, brutal. I think it was this same cadence last time too. Lucky for me I didn't have to worry about that second round lol

                  Has anyone heard from Renton? I received an interview RSVP a few weeks ago from my PST test, but then I haven't heard anything else. I'm curious if the delay is for including people that took this test?

                  I'm also curious if South King/Tukwila is hiring this round?


                  Edit: Just got an e-mail ESF-R is not interviewing.

                    Nothing yet from Renton after I got the invite to apply.

                    Also Eastside just canceled their interviews....

                    Guess it's a good thing I didn't book a basic economy flight.

                            I tried to contact Tukwila's HR before the test to see if they were hiring this round, and I never heard back.

                            South King is doing interviews on June 11th. They were contacting candidates by calling them, so check your voicemail. I got a call about a week ago, but had to decline because I couldn't make it to the in person interviews that day.

                              Never got anything from South King, so they must have had a high cut off like Puget Sound

                                Renton already did 1st round interviews. So yeah looks like we're out of luck. Wonder why they even invited some of us to apply....

                                Looks like this whole consortium was a bust lol. At least I got an interview with Bellevue.
