nice post.Alright been lurking on and off for a little bit, so lets see if we can get some of your questions answered.
Doctor's Ambulance is an amazing company to work for. The professionalism but also family feel within the company is great. Doctor's Ambulance has a contract for OCFA and Laguna Beach Fire for South Orange County that extends from Tustin to San Clemente with the exception of Mission Viejo. After Hiring, Orientation, and training you are put onto a 911 car that can also run IFT's occasionally. They seem to pretty much be always hiring every month or two. How the hiring process works:
Application: Go to their website, submit application and then either attach or personally turn in all your required certs and/or paperwork.
They will call you back and then give you a testing date. Test is 60 questions long and you are only able to miss 10. The test usually changes from class to class but you can expect anything EMT-B related and general workplace and interpersonal skills questions.
Pass the test then get called back for an interview.
Pass the interview and you will get a hiring date and a orientation date.
Congrats, you are hired and now begin your three month probation.
A few other questions that I have seen in this thread. Yes Doctor's pays for the full 24 hour shift. Yes you can get overtime, very easily I might add. If you are full time you are required to work 48 hours in a week (that is two 24 hour shifts) and can pick up as much overtime as you want or can handle. If you wanted to you could work 96 to over 120 hours a week, eat your heart out kid. How the shifts work is it is divided into three A, B, and C shifts. A shift is Monday/Tuesday (48 hour), B shift is Wednesday and Friday, C shift is Thursday to Sunday. Saturday is divided on the shifts and you are given it once every three weeks depending on the shift cycle.
The experience from this company alone is invaluable. You are working with fire every day in both an EMT attendant and driver position. They realize that most EMT's are not in it for the long haul here and fully encourage you to progress and seek a career in the fire department. Doctor's Ambulance in my opinion is a top notch and amazing company to work for. They were recently bought by AMR however but have changed very little so you get a family feeling oriented company with the backing of a major EMS provider. Hopefully that answers the majority of questions for Doctor's, I might pop in from time to time and see if their are any more that I did not address. Good luck!
Where can I get the above at? I'm a bit confused on that part. I don't want to show up there without that. I have everything else tho'.
