I spent over 2 hours yesterday talking to candidates who have our program and coaching. Then they have gone on another web site with possible questions and suggested answers, looked at other books or done mock interviews. Now they want to discuss the differences and have us justify our formula and system. The yea, but. They’ve acquired all this information and got to the point of analysis paralysis. I refer to this as the woofel affect. The woofel affect is where you start walking in a circle. The circle and your steps get smaller. Tighter. The circle gets so small that you suck yourself up you own ass.
Do we have all the answers? Our program and produces speak for themselves by getting a whole lot of people get hired. After trying to defend our process for 20 minutes to one candidate who looked at another so called experts web site I told him I’m not going to continue on talking or debating you about this because you let those bad answers do a mind screw on you. Go look at how many testimonies there are on those web sites. Then check ours: http://www.eatstress.com/testbest.htm
From our son Captain Rob:
It sometimes surprises me the position I find myself in talking to people testing for fire jobs. It doesn’t happen all that often and I think that is why I don’t see it coming. I will be working with someone in a coaching session, or just talking on the phone with someone that has questions. They will ask a few questions, nothing wrong with that, and then give me information they got from someone else. Apparently, an expert they talked to, who has given them advise that seems to conflict with what I am telling them. It never ceases to amaze me that someone who called me for advice, or is paying me to help them get their dream job, begins to argue and debate with me.
Now don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against asking questions, asking for clarification, or wondering what the reasoning is behind something. I wouldn’t want a firefighter that didn’t know to satisfy their curiosity. It is very frustrating for me when I hear for the second or third time, “My fire instructor said this”, or “ I read another book that said to handle the situation in another manner”,
I think my record and reputation can stand for themselves. I am sure there is no one in the U.S. that can claim to have helped as many people get hired than we have. So when someone wants to take the time I am giving them, it seems silly to debate. It would be like taking you car to the BMW mechanic and, while he is fixing it, telling him how your auto shop teacher told you to fix something.
One of my personal achievements, of which I am most proud, was helping the dumbest guy in the world get a job. His dad is a firefighter and his son was living in his basement. He had a job, but not a good one. The dad called me and asked if I could help his son. I did. While this guy could tell the sharp end from the dull on a flat head axe, using his cell phone was pushing it. I have no doubt that he is a great firefighter right now, but he will always be a firefighter. The reason he got hired is because, as dumb as he was, he called me, worked with me, and then did everything I said. On that test I helped the sons of three guys that worked at the same station together get hired. You have never seen a happier group of guys, their sons had good jobs, and they were finally moving out of the house.
While I have a great success rate helping people get hired, there are a few that have troubles. Most have the same thing in common. They consider themselves very intelligent and think they can wow the panel. They take the simple, elegant script we have come up with and then turn it into a Fabrishe Egg. I had one guy that went as far as to add the rainfall total for his answer what do you know about this city.
I think the point I am trying to make here is that Capt Bob and myself love talking to people and answering questions. We want to help people have as enjoyable careers as we have had, but it just gets annoying to have people call for advise and begin to second guess and debate. I do have time to talk to whoever needs help, but I will never have time to debate people who call me for help, life is just too short. Good Luck, Capt Rob
