Just talked to the EMS director he said it will be behavioral questions.. anyone have any ideas??
SSwain has it right. How do you handle stress type questions will probably be in there. Also questions about your customer service methods. How would you handle a patients who is inappropriate/rude/angry ect.
Why do you want to be an EMT?
Do you have any experience that you think will help you in your duties?
Explain how you are going to fit volunteering into your schedule?
How long can you volunteer for?
What is a mistake you have made recently and how did you resolve it?
What kinds of people do you work with the best? the least?
For all those who are volunteer EMT's what were some of the questions asked on your interviews? I have the opportunity for an interview with my local ems.. Just looking for some help on the questions asked. I assume a suit is the proper attire?
The interview for the last place I volunteered with consisted of where do you live and why do you want to be a member of our organization. I might be a bit careful on the clothing as well. I wore dress causal (chinos, dress shirt, sweater) clothes and they actually made a comment about how I was overly dressed. One guy was in uniform and the other three people there were in jeans and t-shirts. I live in a very rural area and dress clothes are far from common, so definitely keep in mind the area that you live/hope to volunteer in.
Thanks for your input the community is a upper middle class town not to rural it's a fairly large town. The ems director said it will be a 45 minute interview so it does sound pretty in depth.
