Takes about 3 months maybe for EMS. Once a quarter interviews are done. End of July or so is orientation and around December. Not sure when winter/spring orientation is held. Your resume goes to HR in the hospital. Then HR has to send your resume to EMS side ( thatbprobably takes the longest.) Then EMS head staff goes through the resumes. It’s hard to get in. Maybe knowing someone or being a good interviewer. You are tested on your skills like when you were in the EMT academy. Medical/trauma assessments. If you don’t know what to do in a scenario that’s okay. Be honest then just guessing on what to do. That shows bad character on your part. Within a week you will get an email with Hire information. From that point usually a month until orientation. Takes time to do physical/blood testing, TB shot and get uniforms. Training process once on the road is very informative and can be intense if your 911 experience isn’t strong. You learn a lot during the training and you will be successful. It’s a good job to have and learn so much in an Urban environment. Sometimes your really busy but it’s not that bad. During a shift I’d say you have maybe 4-8 jobs your shift before switching. Maybe 10-16 calls a day. Remember it’s short distance to the hospital so it’s not so terrible. Just do your job be professional and respect your coworkers/patients and all will be fine. Also, Barnabas Health has a contract with Prudential so you can cover any event that is held there. Don’t forget details in jersey city that are held a lot throughout the year. So plenty ways/shifts to work to break up the constant street life shifts.
Interview for mental health technician. 10 min interview with HR. Then she sent me to meet with the director and that lasted 30 min. It was friendly and open. Discussed the duties of the job and gave me a tour of the different psychiatric units. Interview began at 11 ended at 12:15pm.

Not horrible but also not standardized. It's based on connections most times and who you know
