The Psychological Interview

We spent over a year finding out the solution to this problem.  Here's a segment from our Special Report "Conquer The Psychological Interview":

You have been testing for three, five, or seven years to get a firefighter job, or you are testing for a promotional position in another department. You are finally in the hiring process. Youíve made it through the background check. Then, youíre conditionally offered the job pending the medical which includes a psychological test. You take the test, no big deal right? Then the phone stops ringing. You are out of the process. You are told that you didnít meet the profile. What profile?

What do you mean I didnít meet the profile? Iíve got training, experience, education, every degree, certificate, merit badge, and a paramedic certification. Iíve been a volunteer, paid member of another department for 10 years, and lived and breathed this job. And, I donít meet the profile?

The Personnel Department wonít talk to you. They say it was the physiologist who passed judgment. The physiologist wonít talk to you. You canít see the results of the test. You are devastated!

The psychological test is changing the fire service. Sure there are some folks who have a lot of baggage and shouldnít be hired. But most of the red-hotís, the back bone of the fire service, canít make it through the process. Surprisingly, the evaluations are based on the performance of those in already in the fire service.

More and more agencies are using the psychological test in their hiring process. Psychologists are competing for this lucrative business and agencies feel they need the service to hire the right candidates. In one large department forty-percent of candidates were eliminated from the hiring process through the psychological tests. Fire administrations feel theirs hands are tied and get frustrated when they see a high percentage of their superior candidates that were eliminated by their physiological test and then being hired by other agencies.

"Psychologists are given more power then they should," says Robert Thomas Flint, Ph.D.,  who sometimes does re-evaluations of potential peace officers and firefighters who have failed psychological tests. Although he tends to agree 40-50% of the original decisions were valid, he finds that another 30-50% of the rejected candidates are acceptable and can handle the job.

The above is from our Special Report "Conquer The Psychological Interview."  Here's how you can learn more:

Up to forty percent of candidates are not passing the psyche test!  Imagine after all the education, experience and time preparing to get this job . . . and   you're eliminated.  Then no one will talk to you to find out what happened.   I've talked to too many candidates who were devastated and didn't know what to do next.

"Captain Bob" spent over a year researching the problem.   Like any other portion of the test, you need to be ready for the psyche.  The special report has the road map to get through the mine field.

Did you know if you failed a psyche test you can request a second opinion?   That's right.  The psyche is part of the medical.  It's covered under the ADA law.  Most agencies don't know this.  We have had several candidates re-instated when they passed their second psyche test.  Since they had already been offered the job with the condition that pass the medical (which included the psyche), they not only got re-instated, they got the job.

"Nothing counts 'til you have the badge . . . Nothing!"
