  • Oral interview

    I had my oral pannel interview today. It consisted of 2 people from HR and 1 Captain. I primarily was given situation questions and only 2-3 personal questions about myself. A friend of mine had his a few days prior and said a majority of his were all personal questions. Am i looking too far into it or does that seem strsnge.

    Is this your first FD interview?!

    Did you ask your friend if it was the same people on the panel??

    One possible, is different backgrounds,,,, maybe he had to explain a few life experiences, that he went through.

        Hard to say, why

        But once again, if another person had some hiccups, police reports or job trouble, or, they might just get a few more personal questions.

        Plus, you will learn, if a applicant is a total zero, the panel may do the minimum and go on to the next person.

          If you have not found this site, it has a lot of info:::

            More than likely im just overthinking the situation. In my personal opinion i feel the situational questions may come off more difficult than asking someone to talk about themselves


            • #7
              Kind of depends on the individual

              their life experiences

              and confidence

              Best advice check that web site

              Get the recorder going and have someone ask you questions. Play it back and see what you sound like, do you make any sense, do you say more than two sentences, do you say ah and um.

              Also even if you are not interested in a Dept take the written test, to see what they are like and hopefully you get an interview,,, so you can see the different styles.

              Which state are you in???

                  Good, my other advice, is test anywhere and everywhere, Don't just try for the dream department, You may never get hired.
