    I worked at Rural/Metro full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This company has really excelled in building quality teams to provide ALS and BLS patient care needs in many American cities. Teamwork, community involvement, value driven patient care, partners in excellence with hospitals, fire, police and other networks of providers all have become Rural Metro strongpoints!

    Cons

    Often, large staffing needs can put many employees in positions of not getting their voices heard. These larger ambulance companies have big footprints in communities and provide employment opportunities to many, but the problems often seen in larger companies are not exempt in Rural Metro's families.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the little guys out in the trenches and their needs are only what their patient's need.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Rural/Metro in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, 2 weeks latter I received a call to schedule an interview for the next day. Had my interview and was told I should hear back the following week but didn't hear from anyone. I was asked about things that were in both my application and resume, I felt like no one had read either. I was asked to give copies of my certifications and sign electronic agreements before I sat for my interview.

    Interview Questions
    • It was very standard questioning a few how would you handle this patient etc. the rest was standard interview questions why do you want to work here etc.   Answer Question
