Suggestions for improvement

  • Mandatory college degrees (at least for those in a leadership role). The color of your skin shouldn't matter, as we are a team. Physical ability/strength to do the job should definitely be requirement!

I like about the employer

You work every third day, job security, and a pension plan.

I dislike about the employer

Hi There,

I was hired as a sub-rookie, which is a position given to a select few before the academy starts. It's an administrative type of role which was pretty cool because you get to see how the fire department works. It was the beginning of the end for me. It was the most racial environment I have ever seen or could ever have imagined. The rules of this review state not to provide individuals names or anything like that so I will keep it short and sweet. During my 7 years it never got any better. They state its a para- military organization, however, there is no education required to be in a leadership role, or even an educational role in the Dallas Fire Department. You promote only with your ability to memorize. With that being said, the opportunity to advance is definitely open to anyone, whether they have the wherewithal to do so. In addition, physical strength is not a requirement, nor encouraged either. I would love to write a more thorough review however its difficult with the rules set in place. Overall though, it was truly a disappointing, eye opening experience!
