I interviewed in Melbourne, FL to work in the hospital. The interviewer was nice and straight forward. It seemed that if your background or driving record had a felony you did not qualify. We were also told that we have to be available basically 24hrs day and night shift. She also asked everyone if your comfortable with heights because you will have walk the roof and secure the roof for the helicopter. Also if your comfortable working around dead bodies because it might come a time where you have to guard the morge or even take a wedding ring off the finger of a loved one. When you do get your 1 on 1 time with the interviewer your asked about your previous jobs and why you left. Then your asked a few other questions. And if you do have your license already you still have to attend the class and you get reimbursed after completion of the 40hr class. If your applying in Melbourne, Fl you do have to travel to Orlando to complete the class.

You can only get overtime on sites other than your own which makes it hard sometimes to get. I went from 80-90 hours a week to 36 because there wasn't anything available. Without overtime you can't survive.

If you are PRN you may get some flexibility. As a full time staff there is no flexibility. They will tell you there is while you're going through the hiring process. Once on a shift after training you will see there's no flexibility.
