    Firefighter/EMT Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Houston Fire Department - Texas in June 2008.

    Interview

    First and foremost is a written exam consisting of multiple choice questions exclusively. It's incredibly easy - essentially 6th grade level math and english skills. Anything below 96-100 has no chance of being hired. The rest of the process includes a background check, polygraph, one on one interview, and a medical exam.

    My advice, get your extensive paperwork turned in ASAP
