Battalion Chief Dean Guccione is committed to leaving the fire service better than he found it by helping entry level firefighter candidates become the person that ALL fire departments want to hire, so they can realize their dream of becoming a full-time, professional firefighter. He trains, coaches and mentors candidates to fully understand the hiring process, and how to properly prepare, not only for the oral interview and hiring process, but for the job, as a professional firefighter.

Chief Guccione retired from the Beverly Hills Fire Department in April of 2016. As the Personnel Division Chief, Dean was charged with writing and administering promotional exams for Battalion Chief, Captain and Engineer.  He has also sat on dozens of promotional interview and tactical panels, as a rater, for multiple southern California fire departments, including L.A. City, Fullerton, Brea, Torrance, and Newport Beach Fire Departments, just to name a few.

Chief Guccione was also charged with administering and writing the entry level firefighter hiring process including writing all of the oral interview questions. As a member of the oral interview panel, Chief Guccione has interviewed hundreds and hundreds of entry level firefighter candidates over the last 20 years of his 29 year career. And as a Chief Officer, he’s networked with other department Chiefs regarding the entry level process, so he knows exactly what ALL fire departments are looking for in their candidates as well.

Interviewing an average of over 100 candidates per year, he knows exactly what he’s looking for when an applicant walks in the room. Unfortunately, even the highest scoring candidates are not as fully prepared as they should be, but with the right coaching and preparation, you have a significantly better chance of finishing at or near the top of the list, which is where you need to finish to move forward in the hiring process.

Chief Guccione can help you go from an inexperienced, or even a “good” candidate, to an Outstanding Candidate with the correct coaching, mentoring, understanding, and preparation. You will learn how your personal experiences will relate to every question you are asked by the interview panel, naturally driving your score to the top of the list.

You too can be a top firefighter candidate by becoming one of Chief Guccione’s students. So, let’s get started!
