    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Acadian Ambulance Service in June 2016.

    Interview

    Quite nice people. Very friendly and answered all my questions. Had a little difficulty when it came to 2nd interview with manager(first was with hr rep). They had their act together more than what I had heard about them.

    Interview Questions

    • The basics(where do you see yourself, why do you want to work for us, etc). Nothing too hard at all.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I would have taken the offer but I could not justify the pay cut for the years of experience. I have worked 911 and had basics make more than what I was offered.
