well the interview was a slight curve ball today.

I certainly was more than prepared for it, but I showed up to the expected panel interview, and I was asked a variety of questions pertaining to the job and me as the candidate. there was no fire scenario or personal situation.

one question asked how I would deal with a conflict between me and another member and then how I would deal with two conflicting members. I suspect that question was designed to more so test my ability to answer multiple questions/multitask coupled with the actual response.

overall I was very prepared and nothing caught me off guard. I have a solid knowledge of interviews, and in a panel type I make sure to address my answers to all individuals, not just the one reading. four of them were immersed in their notes that I couldn't make eye contact with them at all during the interview. I walked ln with dress slacks on, a nice collared button up shirt, all tucked in, dress shoes, fresh hair cut and shave, opposed to the individual before me in jeans and a T-shirt. I also had a perfected cover letter and resume of all fire and military experience and trained in nice binders, one for each member to review. I felt that I made a solid impression, at least on the three chiefs. they're still waiting to schedule 3 other interviews this coming week, so I have some time to fret over it all Haha.
