Paramedic/EMT Application and Hiring Process

The first step is to submit your completed application online while the desired job posting is open. We will only consider applicants who apply through our online careers portal.

Once your application is completed, our talent team will review your resume and if you meet the requirements you will receive an invitation to sign up for the next scheduled hiring process. Please note these invitations will go out approximately one week before the hiring process and that you will be required to select an interview time. Once you have selected an open time, you will be sent a confirmation email with directions on what to expect for your hiring process day.

The Hiring Process is an interviewing and selection process that includes multiple stations consisting of a panel interview, physical agility test (PAT), and uniform fitting. All candidates are evaluated at their highest level of training, and are required to provide proof of valid certification and training (i.e. Texas and/or National certification cards, CPR/BLS, NIMS 100, 200, 700, etc.).

If we receive satisfactory results after you have completed the hiring process, we may then make a conditional offer of employment. The offer is contingent upon the applicant passing pre-employment screenings which consist of a standard physical, drug test, and TB test, as well as a background/employment verification.

If the applicant successfully completes the pre-employment screening, then their employment will commence on the first day of the New Employee Orientation Program (NEOP).

NEOP takes place over the course of five weeks, and it is not held on weekends.

After the successful completion of NEOP, newly hired field employees will ride third person with a Field Training Officer (FTO) for approximately eight weeks of field training before being released to an available shift.


Please see below for our 2024 Hiring Process Events and New Hire Orientation Program (NEOP) dates.

*Please note that you only need to attend one of the two hiring process dates*
