Psychological Written Exam Preparation and Psychological Interview Preparation

Don McNea Fire School is the number one  firefighter preparatory school in the country.  Since 1950, our seminars and entry-level products have successfully prepared over 40,000 applicants for firefighter examinations across the country.

The Psychological Written Exam

Over the last 7-10 years while conducting seminars across the  country, Don McNea Fire School has noticed a significant landscape change in the  examination format. More municipalities are increasingly relying on psychological tests - not only in the hiring phase but also in the entry-level examination format. In recent years, we have had numerous fire candidates with stellar credentials (including degrees in fire science technology, EMT and  Paramedic certifications) doing well on all other portions of the exam yet  failing the psychological part.

We are again addressing the need that you, the fire applicant, have asked us to address. Don McNea Fire School Psychological Exam Preparation addresses this key component of the testing process that between 40%-60%  of applicants are failing.

Did you know that at least 95% of firefighter examinations given across the country contain psychological testing in the hiring  process?  This preparation program gives you the insight into what the  psychologists are looking for in successful fire candidates. We identify major  personality traits and characteristics of a successful firefighter and we address specific reasons why fire candidates are failing psychological  examinations.

In this 40 page workbook, we examine over 80 questions from  each of these key personality traits.  With each question, we provide you  with suggested answers and explanations to put you in the mindset of what the  psychologists are looking for.  Our program also includes a sample nationwide job analysis that identifies key personality traits and behaviors of a successful firefighter.   Candidates who are using our program are going  from failure to passing and scoring over 95 percent on the psychological  examination and proceeding to the next phase of the hiring process. 

Fire Candidates who recently purchased our Psychological Exam  Preparation Program had this to say:

"After hearing all my friends who were taking examinations complain about failing the psychological exam, I decided to go in prepared. Your  psychological preparation was the reason I passed my exam. I have no doubt that I might have failed without it. It made me realize the reasons why my friends failed the exam and showed me how not to make the same mistakes. I highly recommend this program for anyone taking a psychological examination."Tom from California

"It was quite frustrating to continually finish in the top 10% on  the written exam but continue to fail the psychological portion of the exam. I  didn't know what I was doing wrong, only that I failed it. After purchasing your  program, I realized the mistakes that I was making. Just fine-tuning a couple areas of the personality traits that the psychologists are looking for gave me the edge I needed. I have now completed two psychological examinations, have  passed both and am a finalist in those departments." Brad from Ohio.

"When you state in your psychological program that it puts you in the mindset of what the psychologists are looking for - it certainly did! I  never realized that different jobs have different psychological characteristics. I now know what the psychologists are expecting from a firefighter applicant. I feel very confident for my future exams."
Mike from Washington.

Thank you for helping me with the psych portion of the written exam. I took a test a year ago without knowing your info and scored in the low  70's. About 3 weeks ago I took that same test and scored a 94% and will be continuing in the process. That following week I took the same exam at my home  department and though I do not know my score I have been invited to continue in their process as well. I honestly believe that without knowing the information that I obtained in your Psychological Prep Program that I would not be  continuing in the process anywhere. I believe in what you have done for me and therefore I have recommended your material and website to many of the candidates  that I have talked to in the past few weeks. I cannot say it enough but THANK YOU! THANK YOU! - Larry From Oregon

Capt Bob Smith's Psychological Interview Preparation

You have been testing for  three, five, or seven years to get a firefighter job and you are finally in the hiring process.  You've made it through the background check.  Then, you're  conditionally offered the job pending the medical which includes a psychological interview.  You complete the interview; no big deal, right?  Then the phone stops ringing.  You are out of the process.  You are told that you didn't meet the profile.  What profile?

What do you mean, I didn't meet the profile?  I've got training, experience, education, every degree, certificate, merit badge, and a  paramedic certification.  I've been a volunteer, paid member of another department for 10 years, and lived and breathed this job.  And, I don't meet the profile?

The Personnel Department won't talk to you.  They say it was the psychologist who passed judgment.  The psychologist won't talk to you. You  can't see the results of the test.  You are devastated!

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 minefield.

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

 

Testimony  from Scott:

 

I took over thirty tests to get hired.  At 32years old, I thought I was getting too old to be hired.  Three days before I was to take my next oral, I found Capt Bob's program.  In  just those few days, I was able to make changes in my presentation to get the best score I'd ever had on an oral.  I received information to go forward in the  hiring process.  Things moved pretty fast after that.  Capt Bob cautioned me to slow down and take the process one step at a time.  He was there to take my  calls when I got crazy.  He was right on every step of the process. 

I had already failed three psychological tests.  I knew what I was doing wrong once I read the Special Report.  I went in better prepared.  I passed!I'm  now working for a big, huge, awesome Class One Fire Department, riding one of  the busiest engines in the nation!

 

This from John:

I ordered your Special Report on psychological exams and felt so empowered during my exams, it was a joke!  It was like I was in their  heads instead of the other way around.  I passed all with flying colors.

I got my call and today was my last day in my civilian job.  I start the academy on March 3rd and am the happiest man on the face of the Earth.  Thanks so much and God bless you!

Your Opportunity!

Don't wait to fail a psychological examination to prepare!  With our program you will go into the examination well prepared and confident.
