    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kurtz EMS (Wood River, IL) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Met with the contract manager. Not really an interview. Just a job description and compensation packet. We discussed what the exact job functions were (turned out to be grossly untrue)
