      Like I said, "I dont think it would hurt" to take a resume if it makes him/her feel more comfortable. They will simply tell him/her, "no thanks, that will not be necessary."

      You are incorrect though, you will be "interviewing" for the job.

          It is a TEST, not an "interview"... The only part similar to an "interview" is to dress up, from there on it is but a TEST that you either pass or fail depending on your actions.

            Yea I meant to say with the exception of Miami, is that where you are headed? I have not seen too many people mention any other city than Miami that are going to Florida but that is just from what I have seen on here.
            Also, I don't think they included Florida in the Southeast annoucement which is another reason I suspect they is not as great a need there right now. So if you found yourself lucky enough to get a TO for Florida I'd consider yourself a very fortunate.

              • Hi Everyone. First post, long time reader.

                Questions regarding the PFT2 for anyone that has completed it: Can you please share the rest intervals between events?

                I like to be prepared and will train to the correct timing. Thanks.

                    Maybe it was different when you did it, but I had a test and an interview, half hour apart.

                      Apparently not everyone is going through that section from the new crop of applicants... some get it and some don't.

                          • I am so nervous i am about to pee my pants. pft2 on friday. I dont get why people are excited when they get the call when you still have to pass pft2. I feel i havent practice enough and then i feel i do not want to burn out. My feet and palms are sweatier than ever and my brain is going 100 miles per hour. If there is anyone taking the PFT2 at Markham Park this friday, I may need motivation. I have no problem doing the tests, but when i get nervous i tense up and then 25 situps may seem like eternity though i can do them.

                            Everything is riding on this and without this job, I feel i will be struggling forever. I am nervous!!!!

                            If I pass, not sure if i should bring my car. I will be in texas (not taking my car) then leaving from texas to FLETC so i probably would have to transport my car there from miami, which may be a little expensive, especially the type of car it is. I may be better off renting one on the weekends if needed? what you guys think?

                              Don't sweat it cause if you are too nervous or excited, you wont be able to take it cause your BP or heart rate will be too high. I was too amped up and excited and my BP was too high now I'm waiting to be rescheduled again for the PFT2.

                                Just try to relax and block everything out, okay... Drink lots of water, sleep when you can and do some light stretches or warm up exercise to loosen your body, blood and mind... Everything will be okay...

                                My PFT2 is on Friday... but not at your location... I told myself what I need to do... I already invision myself passing doing what needs to be done...

                                Go and get some quality rest...
