    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Southwest Ambulance (Mesa, AZ).

    Interview

    I went to school and got my emt b. I applied and applied for months and got no response. I found out I actually had a friend of a friend who worked the front desk. Once I told them this person was a friend, I got the interview and hired within 3 days. Now days it seems they will hire anybody who walks through the door with a pulse.

    EMT-B Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Southwest Ambulance (Mesa, AZ) in April 2014.

    Interview

    6-7 quick questions including a scenario. Basically if you get interviewed you are hired. Hard part is getting an interview, no rhyme or reason as to who gets one and who doesn't. Some people apply for two years to get one, some people apply 1 time and get interviewed. Sit down, 1-on-1 interview with a supervisor. Nothing scary.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Southwest Ambulance (Mesa, AZ).

    Interview

    The interview was short and to the point, testing was easy and relevant. Unfortunately for me the position was offered, then when I called in for information that I had not received via email the response was that they had given my position away. I did ask why and HR's response was it was because we did not have your required information. My response was - you mean the information that I copied and hand delivered 3 times to ---------. HR response - well we didn't have it so we gave your position away. I said - You couldn't call and ask for it again. HR response - we didn't have it - so we just called another person.

    I was able to gain employment three months later after I retested and handed in all my personal information again for the second to last time. (On round two I was given the medic test which I missed by one question and was denied employment until they looked into it. Never apologized - just said - if you wan the job its yours! This is your chance!)

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Southwest Ambulance (Mesa, AZ).

    Interview

    Took several phone calls to Southwest Ambulance before getting an interview. The interview was professional but had the feeling that it was considered "be thankful we're giving you the opportunity to interview/work for us" rather than "welcome to your interview process...show what you can bring to the table to make our company better" Took a couple weeks to find out that I was hired.
