[02/24/20]   Rob and I received this review today. We have been doing this a long time, but hearing people's success stories never gets old.

I purchased the book/program about a year ago (before my first FD interview in almost 20 years). I definitely made some mistakes during the interview, but still scored high enough to receive a job offer. I have no doubt, that if I would have put any less effort into getting organized in preparation for the interview, that I would not have made the cut. In fact, the interview would have likely been a disaster.

At the time, the price for the program seemed like a lot of money. Now, looking back, I think this program will generate a larger return than any investment I could ever make.

This program is the first thing I will recommend to anyone with an upcoming interview. Thanks again for the awesome product- it changed my life.

Boise Fire Department

Boise Fire is immediately hiring because of the abnormal amount of retirements in our department. We are not accepting new applications, instead, in order to get crews on the line more quickly we will hire approximately 18 firefighters. These names will be selected from the current list of firefighters that were obtained during the interview process in the spring of 2019. They will be hired in March of 2020. We will begin a new recruitment process in the late summer/early fall of 2020 with an anticipated hire date of January or February of 2021.


Ride alongs can be very helpful if they are done right. Remember ask about them. How many stations, population of the city, first out apparatus, what gear do they have on the apparatus, how many people are on the department, etc. Don’t walk in talking about your old department and what they do unless they ask about you and how your stations run. #fire #topscore #insta #interview #firefighter #ffprovinggrounds #kempterfirewire #nationalfireradio #firereviews #fireman_323 #tips #jobs #career #bomberos

Having Humility and being Humble are huge. No one wants to work with, or even for a person who isn’t for the team and won’t accept their mistakes as their own. #teamplayer #ffprovinggrounds #topscore #firereviews #fireman_323 #nationalfireradio #fire #firefighter #bomberos #trainyourprobie


Be prepared! This might seem like a no brainer but having a few solid leadership stories or ways that you have shown leadership skills on hand is a must. Don’t try and think of them on the spot. You are most likely getting that question asked so be prepared. It looks way more professional to be asked that question and roll right into an example rather than sitting there racking your brain for a story. #topscore #interview #insta #ffprovinggrounds #trainyourprobie #kempterfirewire #fireman_323 #nationalfireradio #firereviews #train #fire #firefighter


Interview vocab word of the day INTEGRITY. You are nothing without it and everything with it in your interview. #fire #firefighter #ffprovinggrounds #trainyourprobie #nationalfireradio #insta #interview #job #career #integrity #firereviews #wordoftheday


Easy as that! Show the interview panel you can make a decision and stick with that choice. They don’t want you on scene of a fire or EMS call changing your mind over and over. @topscore_official #topscore #interview #insta #fire #firefighter #ffprovinggrounds #fireman_323 #nationalfireradio #firereviews #bomberos #kempterfirewire #career
