    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Augustine, FL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at St. Johns County in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    My first contact was at the tryout. You must be able to swim 500 meters in less than 10 minutes and run .5 miles in less than 3 minutes. Everyone who passed the tryout was able to attend marine rescue academy - a lengthy and time consuming training course. It was four weeks long, met three days a week (Tues-Thurs) for classroom time and a workout and on Sundays almost the whole day for a little more class time and a LOT more physical training. At the end of the course, there is a written exam, a physical exam (the Gauntlet), and an oral exam as well as an interview. Everyone in my class who made it to exam day was hired.

    Interview Questions
    • The Gauntlet was difficult. Everyone was exhausted. It was hard.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Everyone who passed the physical, oral and written exams was hired. Everyone who finished the course and took the exams passed.
