    Hey! Sorry, I dont really see these profile posts lol. But um, as far as putting on your turnouts? Just practice practice practice is all I can say. In our class making sure the faceshield being down was a critical fail if it was still up, we actually had a guy get failed out of Academy because he failed the skills testing fir failing to put the shield down in time
    Aloha Jim!,

    Maui kid here! Trying to get into C&C EMS on Oahu.

    Thank you Jim! I was just accepted into KCC’s EMT program and was so excited to hear the good news! The interview to get into the program is the same as the Fire Department :) I hope to see you on the road someday or in the Department coming in as a recruit!

    Hey, I have a update on C&C EMS schedule. Its still wither noon to midnight/midnight to noon.

    Rotating 2 week schedule, work 2 in a row, 2 off in a row, 3 on. Flip the next week to 2 off, 2 on, 3 off
    So work Mon-Tues, off Wed-Thurs, work Fri, Sat, Sun
    Next week off Mon-Tues, work Wed-Thurs, Off Fri-Sat-Sun, and so on.

    Weeks are 36 hrs and 48hrs .. the 36 jr weeks are paid at 40 hrs to meet full time requirements, the 48hrs, the extra 8 are an automatic overtime.

    Cant comment on rules regarding picking up extra shifts for OT but my understanding is it's fairly unlimited)
    Hello Jim,
    I have an oral interview for McCormick on Monday. Anything in specific you could think of that I might need to know? (I've already taken the written/trauma scenario). Also, How likely is it that McCormick will hire someone straight out of their EMT class?

    Hey sorry for the late reply, don't really check these profile messages... anyways, looking at the date stamp I'm sure you already did the interview, hopefully you passed! But otherwise the interview is fairly standard stuff from what I remember (it has been like 3-1/2 years now)
    Hi!

    I am working as an Assistant EMS Instructor in the Middle East. Need your help to figure out a feasible EMS research topic related to EMS Education / Ambulance services / Scope of practice / Pre-hospital care or EMS Internship.

    Thanks and Regards
    Hey Jim
    I’m Coty
    I’m trying to get into McCormick
    Any advice?

    Well it's been about a year since I left McCormick, and mother year and a half since I went thru the hiring process, and they've since gone thru a bunch of expansion and whatnot so all that's changed. About the only advice I can give is to know your EMT stuff, and know how to read a Thomas Guide map book

    Hello Jim! Sorry to also bug you as I see you have some McCormick fans here also asking questions but I too have an interview with them and wondered if you had any pointers on the Thomas Guide test? Also, how soon after you interviewed and tested were you contacted about a job offer?
