I had an interview yesterday and I think it went pretty well. I had done a lot of prep, and used the star format. The interview was long, (hour and 15)!
I've been pretty lucky so far. Im only EMR, but they contacted me the day after I submitted my application, and I had an interview date within two weeks of that.
I'm just curious...is this the typical rate of the process, or does it bog down at a certain point? Seems like things have been done pretty efficiently so far, and Im really preoccupied with that interview! Chomping at the bit for some feedback!
I was thinking that I will eventually have to take the physical testing, so maybe focusing on "training" for that might get my mind off the interview. Anyone have an inside scoop on what the applicant is to perform in the assessment? Is it different depending on gender?
Push ups x ?
Sit ups x ?
Step test for how long?
Any info would be greatly appreciated!

I don't know who told you 33 push-ups but 90% of the work force couldn't do 33 push ups. I've never been able to do 33 push-ups in my life, or not since I was 10.

I just have the physical and medical tests left for the recruitment process. I guess if I pass, I'll get a list of stations that are hiring, and then I'll have to pick one. I'm shooting for the same thing everyone else probably is - decent amount of opportunity to work, and a commute that is "do-able". Fraser Valley is my "base", so something within 4-5 hours would be nice.
What would be REALLY awesome is to have an inside scoop about a station (that would hire an EMR), who has a really great chief! Easy to get along with, or is a great teacher, etc...
If I had (at least) one call on a shift, and a good chief, I think that would be a pretty sweet gig!

I'm currently working for an air ambulance service in northern Canada and my schedule is one month on and one month off. I've been thinking of moving to BC and wouldn't mind picking up a few shifts during my months off. Obviously I wouldn't be able to practice to my full scope in a BLS car.
Yes, absolutely. You'd be working as a PCP however. PCP pay and PCP scope of practice.
