Liberty LACo and Liberty Kern are completely different.

I once transported an EMT that worked for Liberty LACo. I asked why they didn't transport him. He straight out said "I don't want them transporting me." At the time I worked for a direct competitor of Liberty (LACo guys will understand the rivalrys).

I would have no problem having Liberty Kern transport me or family. The Kern system is a good one, it works well, the companies are all legit and fire works well WITH us, not us working for them.

I work in Kern County for a different provider. But if I didn't, I would have no quams working for Liberty.

We have stations in Lake Isabella, Kernville, Inyokern, and Ridgecrest.
No longer hiring full time but part time spots are always open.
If you're in Bako I'd hight recommend Hall Ambulance as well, there's several related threads on here.

Unfortunately, if you passed, they will usually tell your right there.

The hardest interview to get through is the first one with HR. If you passed she will usually tell you right then. The second interview is with our operations manager and its just for him to feel you out and get to know you. He offered me my job on the spot so I assume you would walk out of that interview knowing as well.

Sorry if I'm the barer of bad news :/

I didn't make it first time either. I reapplied 6 months later and got it

Well yea I was pretty bummed the first time I just talk to 2 emts that currently work there as well they both told me they had to wait for a call back.. and then got a secound interview they both said my interview sounded the exact same as there's... Now I don't know what to think if I got it or not.

I'm not too worried yet.. the one conducting it .. just seemed not interested it what I had to say didn't make too much eye contact and seemed to be annoyed with other things going on.. I'm not too sure I left super bummed cuz I felt I answers everything the best I could. I've had several EMTs who currently work there telling me they had the same feeling and also waited for a call back.. so I' have no clue what's going on as of this far.

I was told that I'd have to wait for a call back and that I should be hearing something shortly. She (the HR assistant) also asked me to email her a copy of my bachelors degree as she seemed interested in the fact that I had a bachelors degree. I left the interview feeling confused...

I feel like we left the exact same way.. I'm also very confused.. idk having people tell me they had the same exact thing happen makes me feel better abit tho.. but still like you said very confused

Thank you. I currently work for a large SoCal operation and much like the poster above have much respect for Hall Ambulance and the Kern County system. I would be honored to be able to work for Hall Ambulance.

Sorry to Stray away from the subject of Liberty I know this wasn't a HALL post. I was mainly going to Bako for a job at all. But if I was to stay in Lancaster liberty is still Kern County so I know the scope is diffrent. So maybe Liberty wouldn't be a bad change change

Hall or Liberty you're definitely going to enjoy the change. My first thought when I came up here from LA was Oh ****, so this is what real EMS is like...
Whichever way you go, Kern county is a great system to work in.
