ORAL BOARD INTERVIEWS

The oral interview can come at the beginning of the testing process as a pass/fail portion that you must pass in order to take the written exam.  More commonly, the top scorers on the written examination move on to the oral interview.  Depending on the municipality, the oral exam can be pass/fail or graded.

Normally during the interview process, 3 officers of the department you are trying to become a member of interview you.  The process can be a very nerve-wracking, grueling time for fire applications.  This process will require that you practice your interviewing techniques repeatedly in order to impress the oral board and put you in hiring position.
