    Default Florida Jobs

    Anyone know of any places hiring near Sarasota? I have been applying all over as a firemedic and I have been told by almost everyone they arent hiring, waiting till after the first of the year for some. The hiring processes for some departments are almost a year.

    Anyone know of some departments that are relatively fast process that need medics?

    I am with Osceola County and word is we will be opening a hiring process in Oct with a start sometime in January......Medics are always looked at first so as long as nothing comes up on your background, MVR, and you pass the test you will almost be a shoe in......we are slowly becoming more medic heavy so more and more medics will be riding the engine....starting is around 36K with a $7500 medic incentive....3 week kelly days.....lots of vacation time and floating holiday....fast growing dept as well....good school reimbursement program after probation.
    and an FYI....the county is just south of orange county/orlalndo area....i myself live in brandon just east of I-75 and i make the drive....there is no requirement to live within a certain distance but the county does is between polk and brevard counties and has Kissimmee in the north end and Yeehaw Junction in the souther region....its big

    site is www.osceola.org
