    Preliminary Background Questionnaire

    So you take an in person or on-line Preliminary Background Questionnaire (PBQ) and when you try to continue it flashes PERMANENT DISQUALIFICATION! or, There Could Be a Delay in Your Background. What happened?

    Well, you probably answered correctly or incorrectly yes to a question that had a threshold that was an automatic disqualification. You still might not be out of the woods on some of your answers. They could come back to haunt you later in the process. Make sure you go back and double check your answers. You would be surprised what percentages of candidates are being disqualified from this process.

    The Preliminary Background Questionnaire is designed to eliminate candidates early on in the hiring process before they spend lots of time and money on those who they would tank later.

    There is no question that candidates should lead their lives as if their future consideration of being hired as a firefighter depended upon it. There are more departments including a PHQ.

    Threshold

    So where’s the threshold? Did you answer yes to a question on drug use? How many times? Answer yes to a question on how many times you had drank more than the legal limit and drive? Driving or criminal record? Bad credit?

    So what do you do?

    Learn from you're experience. Before you submit future on-line or hand out printed forms double check your answers for errors and think twice before you step on any land mines that could take you out of the process.

    You can take an on-line PHQ for LA City to see how you fair here:
