I'll post for moral support.
Most AMR interviewes are structured the same:
Why do you wanna work here?
Give us a time when you had an issue with a co-worker, how did you handle it?
Name a time when you had to be a leader?
Have you ever done anything to improve your work place?
Name a mistake you have made what have you done to prevent that in the future?
Some divisions will ask a drug question or a situational question, but they all generally follow the same format. Its a nation wide company so AMR has minimum requirements each division has to follow, but each division has the ability to add more to the process.
When I interviewed at Rancho AMR a month ago it was really easy they first wanted to know my availability etc. Asked me a time where I had a conflict with a coworker and how I fixed it. Why did I become an EMT etc.
My Riverside AMR interview a couple of weeks ago was even easier from what I remember:
Tell me something about yourself?
Why did you want to become an EMT?
Where do you see yourself 5/10 years from now?
Are you ready/comfortable to make the jump to a 911 rig?
If I called your past employers what would they say about you?
Thats pretty much it and then I was called in for a "group interview" where all 26 of us were hired. They hired a ton of medics over half of them were medics it seemed like. 3 EMT's have 0 field experience. They're lucky IMO.
I have an interview coming up in Rancho Cucamonga after waiting a little over a year after passing the written exam. I have been currently working as an EMT during this 1 year of waiting to get an interview with AMR. My question is how is the interview process and what do I need to prepare for (skills, panel interview, 1 on 1...ect)? I know in Irwindale they do a skills and I heard Rancho is just an interview but I'm not quite sure. Any info would be great!
Again this is for AMR Rancho.
Hmm ok, when you didn't get the job at Rancho did you just keep applying and go through the motions until you got hired with another division, or did you have to take another written testing do the whole waiting process again? Or did they recommend you to the division you are at?It took me about a year and a half before I was contacted by HR for an interview. I interviewed at AMR Rancho last year but didnt make the cut. I was hired at another AMR division though. When I interviewed it was with 2 people and they switched off every question they asked me like 6. AMR Rancho does not do a skills test.
Just to clarify, I've received a call back for an interview from AMR after having submitted applications and a resume. They very well knew I was under 21.
That said, there are still companies that may have the restriction.
