2 days shifts then 2 night shifts then 4 days off. There is A, B,C and D shift.  When you come out of recruits you put your first 3 station preferences down in order from 1-3. Then you will be a reliever(cover sick leave, annual leave etc) until there is a vacancy at your number 1 preference. This can take 4 or 5 years in some cases. But once you get to your prefered station you can stay there for as long as you want eg 10 years. But if you are promoted to Station officer(minimum 9 years in job i think) you change shift and station.

The SAMFS web site has been updated with the new Position Information Document for the 2011 recruitment course. Applications still not open yet but can't be far off. The PID has some interesting changes to the minimum entry requirements. If you are thinking about applying I suggest you read it. Good luck.

For my curosity, wouldn't it be easier to physically test alot of people than interview them ?
Interviewing a 100+ people would take alot of time & effort....

Having done the PAT2 late last year it does take up allot of time and resources only testing one applicant at a time. Interviews appeared to have three interviews running at the one time.

I would be 99.9% sure they will interview before pat2. All the tests are pass/fail except the interview(this is where the rankng somes in). They usually interview about 150 people. Would take them about a month to pat2 this number. I think the list on the SAMFS website of testing is just a list and not in any particular order
