FIREFIGHTER Questions and Answers

Why should I hire you?

A good answer will reiterate your qualifications, and will highlight what makes you unique.

Good answer: “I’ve been working in sensitive positions of public trust and high-visibility for a number of years now. I’ve taken the time to educate myself in this career-field. I’ve had experience in a number of skills and tasks similar to the expectations placed upon a City of Phoenix firefighter. I have demonstrated ability to respond and function in hectic situations, and can handle the responsibilities of a leadership role. In me, the customer (City, colleagues, and citizens) is getting a professional who will serve the customer and represent the public trust, the City, and the Department with the utmost regard.”
