  • Eligibility List Question?

    I just tested for the first time and have a question. There are 4-6 positions. Does being ranked 40 on a hiring list mean I can forget about getting a call. We have recently turned in background packets. Just curious if someone has been in a similar situation. Its in the DFW area so whats the norm here? I've heard one look at the background check will cut over half.

    from my experience, 40 isnt bad at all unless there are some absolute top notch candidates ahead of you. I know a former deputy chief from FW and he said that they hired about 1 out of every 5 that passed the physical ability tests. A lot will be knocked out in the poly and background. I wouldnt worry about it.

      4-6 immediate openings? If so then you have even a better shot with attrition.

          I would say you have good luck... I know the hiring number seems small but a lot will get cut fairly quick by just running a criminal and traffic history, and then more when it comes to background.
