Oral Interview Board
The Oral Interview Board is normally comprised of six board members, which includes members of various ranks within the Waco Fire Department. The Oral Interview Board interviews candidates who successfully complete other parts of the selection procedure and objectively evaluate each candidate on six job-related dimensions: appearance, situational reasoning, interpersonal skills, oral communications, dependability and initiative.
Interview with Fire Chief
Applicants who successfully complete the Oral Board Interview and are selected to proceed in the hiring process will meet with the Fire Chief, who will make the final selection.
Complete Physical Examination
Applicants must receive a medical examination by a licensed physician approved/selected by the City of Waco. Applicants must be declared to be in good physical condition and be capable of performing the duties of a firefighter.
