    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at American Medical Response (Farmers Branch, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call to come in for the Criticall Testing about 2 weeks later. The test lasted about 3.5 hours and involved a series of challenging tests measuring memory, attention to detail, spelling, multi-tasking, and other skills necessary for the job. I actually tested in the actual dispatch center so I could overhear real calls being taken while testing. It was a good indicator of what the real job environment would be like. Lots of noise and activity. After I received passing marks, I came in the next week for a face to face interview with two managers. It was pretty relaxed and they asked a lot of questions about my job history and skills and told me more about the position. I suggest emphasizing your ability to multitask and remain calm under pressure.
