    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mecklenburg EMS Agency - Medic (Charlotte, NC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    -FISDAP exam on site/online/recently (within 6 months) PASS/FAIL. Hard stop if you don't pass.
    - Physical exam of about 10 stations including a 2 min cycle of CPR. Bring a change of clothes and shoes for this portion
    -Medical station is NOT scenario based, but will ask you questions that will really test your knowledge beyond basic comprehension
    -Trauma skills station. Don't just verbalize, go to do everything unless stopped. You will have 2 trained assistants on scene.
    - Interview. 30 minute interview, they have a list of questions to get through, and if you don't get to it, you don't get to it. So answer the questions, but don't ramble on.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    If you have previous experience, make sure you can substantiate it. Pay offered is adjusted based on experience. Although experience isn't very recognized. Less than 2 dollars more an hour for 6 years experience.
