    New EMT - Kern County

    It's best to call and ask. I'm in a completely different world as I am based out of a station far away from Metro. Kind of like ventmonkey. I only see the monkey when we need a paramedic with wings. Don't be afraid to call. They are incredibly nice and go out of their way. If your also looking...

    AMR Hiring SoCal?

    Hall also still gives out a moving bonus I beleive. Their are rooms for rent as alot of nurses rent out etc. Theirs also air bnb which is a cheap option if you just wanna come for work. All shifts are pretty much 12s, 4 days on 3 off, 3 on 4 off.

    AMR Hiring SoCal?

    I rented a 2 bedroom 900 sqft apartment with 2 bathrooms and a balcony for $800 a month 3 years ago when I started out. I only had to pay for the electric bill.

    AMR Hiring SoCal?

    What area you coming from? If you have nothing weighing you down, it's a very affordable place to live.

    AMR Hiring SoCal?

    Does it have to be AMR? Have you looked into Hall? They will put you through their medic program for free and pay you while attending. Grass is greener than AMR.

    LA County DHS Ambulance

    If you need a place to stay during your shifts so you don't have to commute, there are places where the out of towners stay. So if you do 3 days on 4 days off than 4 days on 3 days off you can rent some space for like $50 to $100 a month utilities included or do the air bnb thing. It's not too...

    LA County DHS Ambulance

    It's not that competitive they hire alot but few know about it. Stay away from the rest. If I may suggest if your looking for a career and advancing to Paramedic and want some great 911 experience with even greater protocols for EMTs may I suggest leaving LAco completely and trying Hall...
