I'm currently working as a full time ER tech and part-time on a rig (911). If I had to choose between the two I would go for the tech position hands down. Where i'm working it's the opposite, hospital will sponsor me thru medic school so it was obviously a no brainer for me. Compare both and see...
Yes there are many other options but if you wanna run 911 and get great experience i definitely recommend EAS. If you wanna run IFT's and don't care for 911 then it's not the place for you. I applied here with the intention to get hours for medic school and lots of ALS contact. Mission...
Maybe this thread will answer most of your questions. Seems to me like you should be more worried about the written test rather than the skills. Good luck on your interview!
Agreed..unless they specifically said "wear a polo" I wouldn't. My last interview i felt underdressed after seeing the previous guy walk out in a suit. You can't go wrong with button up (plain) slacks (no jeans) a tie and dress shoes (polished) :cool:
Nice hope it goes well... As far as skills go i've heard they do basics = ABC's, CPR, BVM and splints.. nothing too crazy. My buddy is out of town but i'll get back to you with more info once i hear from him.
I applied online on 2/6 and got a call back the next day. From what i heard they hired a lot of people so i must have applied at the right time. I would definitely call them back and do a follow up. When did you guys apply?
