I just got a letter back from the City of Twinsburg Civil Service Dept. I placed 8th out of about 250 applicants! This was the test that I almost missed getting lost driving from Cleveland. I seem to be starting to get better at these tests. The first one I took was Maple Hts. I placed 65th out of 200, and more recently 15th in Brunswick and now 8th in Twinsburg! It is really due in a big part to being a US Army veteran. When I was in basic training we were going around the room giving our reasons for joining the Army. Most of the guys and girls there talked about school money, new experinces, and an escape from home situations. They got to me and I said "I joined to serve my country and to get my 20pt bonus on fire civil service tests." It is a lot of extra points on most tests but you can't say I did not work for it.
