Will being an Emergency Medical Technician scar me for life?
I am currently enrolled in an EMT certification course offered at my school, and, though I am very very excited about it, I am also quite terrified at the possible situations I might encounter on a call. Do EMTs frequently feel burned out and emotionally drained? Also, is it possible for an EMT basic to work as an Emergency Room Technician in the ER? Thanks! #doctor #physician #emt #ambulance #emergency #emergencymedicaltechnician
How long after orientation will I start work?
I went to orientation on May 22nd for the local amusement park. It wasn't a one on one training. We went over the rules for 2 hours and then tried on our uniforms. After I showed my HR person that my uniform fit she said I could go home. It is now May 28th and she hasn't called. I still have my uniform and ID badge but haven't started work or any kind of other training at all! The HR told me that it was required to go to a 7 day probation orientation period were if we miss a day then we get fired. She never told me when I had to be back, no dates or times, not even a "see you tomorrow." I am really getting worried now! What should I do? I was on will call before if that helps. #human-resources #manager #hiring #employers #teenagers #emergency
