Mandatory Orientation & Written Examination


The mandatory orientation and written exam will be conducted on:


Saturday, August 8, 2015


Charles J. Zettek Municipal Complex

901 Wellington Avenue

Elk Grove Village, IL 60007



During the orientation the Fire & Police Commission will present an overview of the hiring process and the Fire Department will provide information on its operation.


The written examination will consist of two primary components: a traditional firefighter entry examination and a situational judgment test. Both will be administered in a paper-and-pencil format. The firefighter exam will assess job-related cognitive abilities, personality characteristics, and behavioral traits. The situational judgment test will assess job-related skills associated with interpersonal and problem-solving interactions similar to those you may have on the job. You do not need to have any firefighter experience, training or knowledge to successfully complete these tests.
