    EMT-Basic Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mesa, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rural/Metro (Mesa, AZ) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Typical interview- meet one-on-one with a supervisor and answer questions. My interviewer was very nice and let me have a minute to think about my answers without rushing me. The only downside is that the interviewer isn't an HR person, so they can't answer questions about salary or hours. Also, he didn't know when HR would be getting back to me. He suggested waiting around 10 days before expecting a callback. I wish their process was faster, that's a long time to wait for a call.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rural/Metro (Milpitas, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Interview for EMT-B position done by a supervisor, mainly asked questions based on personal morals and characteristics, about 5 questions that were scenario-based on how to handle and treat patients in unexpected situations. Key point here is just to remember that as an EMT-B, the most we can really do under our scope of practice is give supplemental oxygen and perform primary and secondary assessments. Overall it was an easy process. Got the job offer on the spot.
