  • Orlando Fire Dept. Testing 2011

    Since the last Orlando thread was locked because people could not stay on topic. I made this one so we can continue to post info. about the ongoing testing process.

    I took the agility yesterday(monday). I believe i did well and one of the LT's approached me after and talked with me saying he heard I did well on the test. I'm assuming that means I passed, now im just hoping I did well enough to move on. How did everyone else do, and what did you think about it?

      [QUOTE=FireFuss;1246524]I'm only going to say one thing, then I won't post in this topic any more since I'm no longer in the hiring process.

      In the email to test that I got, it said you must bring the original copies of your fire/ems certs, a drivers license, and "this email" with the number assigned to you for the social written on it. If it had the dates for the PAT i missed that. And I deleted it already so I can't recheck, thats what I remember it having on it. Also, no one was given the specific date they would take the PAT until after they passed the written. I was only in Florida because my wife was interviewing down there. I had to fly back due to work since I couldn't get the time off. Up here you have to have paperwork in for MXTs at least 3 days in advance. I was on a flight back home on the 1st, and went back to work on the 2nd, and when I found out the PAT schedule I was AT work and working the day I was scheduled. blah blah blah...

      I didn't feel like going here but ask the former Fire chief of Orlando if I tested there. He's my cousin by the way.

      And good luck to everyone still going in the process. And I mean EVERYONE, I don't hold grudges against typed words. Orlando is THE place to work in central Florida.

      If my family does end up down there, I'd be glad to share my story with you face to face.

      Again, good luck ALL![/QU

      Firefuss, no need to explain, we in central Florida know EXACTLY who u are. Orlando would be lucky to have a guy like u on the line. I saw a guy at chipotle here in o town the other day wearin a philly firefighters shirt and I thought it might of been you, didn't ask though. ...

      In other news, I passed the agility today. I saw like 3 people fail, including one from my dept, just while I was there! To everyone that passes, I would think we would be sittin pretty nice right now...good luck!

        question?

        I tested on monday, if you failed they stopped you and sent you back to the class right? I felt like I did something wrong though I dont know what but they just sent me on to the next stage so it would have just been points off? Anyone know?

              Unfortunately we don't know much more than you do right now. If the numbers stand true about how many people failed and gave up, I'd say most of you that finished have a pretty good shot of being in a decent place on the list. But I'm sure you'll know some numbers soon here.

                Do you have any idea of a number of people that failed and gave up during the FFST? I know the dummy search and rescue failed a ton of people.

                    Hey dude. More than likely this will be the only test this year. Ofd traditionally seems to test every 2 years but they keep the list and pull from it as needed it seems. You might here BS rumors of them giving another test because "not enough people passed the process". That's a rumor like every time they test it seems but never happens......

                              Every person that leaves the dept, one will be hired. There isn't a "set" number of how many will be hired off this list or the extent of how long it will be kept.

                              Emails should have gone out today for those who passed and are on the application.. Count the email addresses and that will tell you how many passed.
