Hiring Process

1. The first step is to submit your completed application to Human Resources - You must turn in ALL the Required Documents below along with your application in order to be considered for the Assessment Center.

2. After all forms are turned in to the HR office, we then conduct a criminal background investigation and DMV check. Please note that you will not receive an immediate status update, as it may take up to two weeks for us to receive the results from these investigations.

3. As soon as we receive all of your documents and have the results from the background and DMV reports in our office, we will call you to schedule an Assessment Center. Once scheduled, you will receive an email invitation and instructions to prepare you for the day.

The Assessment Center is an interviewing and selection process that includes five stations consisting of a panel interview, physical agility assessment (MEDPAT), trauma scenario, oral medical interview (including an ECG assessment for Paramedic applicants), and an electronic national standards exam. All candidates are evaluated at their highest level of training.

4. If we receive satisfactory results from your assessment center, we then make a conditional offer of employment. The offer is contingent upon the applicant passing a pre-placement health screening which consists of a drug test, hearing/vision test, TB test and Hepatitis B series. If there are no spots available, you will be placed on a waiting list for upcoming academies.

5. If the applicant successfully completes the pre-placement health screening their employment starts at the next new hire orientation.

6. Orientation runs for approximately six weeks. It is not held on weekends or Agency recognized holidays.

7. After the completion of New Hire Orientation, newly hired field employees will ride third person with a Field Training Officer for approximately 240-hours (20-shifts).
