I haven't heard back from hire power yet everyone. I don't want to contact them again in the risk of sounding annoying.

I'll update you if I get an email back. Has anyone had their second interview and had their York fitness test accepted?

Oh well, if it has to be done, it has to be done.

$200 in the grand scheme of things isn't that much if you get hired! I'm still waiting to hear from hire power to confirm. I'll update everyone if I get an email back.

I called hire power this morning. The hire power rep said that she thinks all candidates will have to complete the fitness test regardless of if we have completed one in the past that is still valid. She is going to confirm with me.

Just wanted to give you all an update.

In the email I got from hire power, it says that the swim test will be accepted but all fitness tests previously will not be accepted. I will try to get in contact with hire power today to confirm and I'll post what I find out. It says in the hiring manual and on their website that they will be acce...
