    Default Resident Volunteer Questions

    I applied for a few resident volunteer positions and I finally scored an interview. What should I expect and how can I best prepare?

    Have not done residency

    But should be normal questions plus can you handle the residency requirements on top of that.

    I would anticipate the typical firefighter interview when ever applying for a volunteer, volunteer resident, part-time, or career position at a department. Processes are obviously different, but in my experience and for the most part...

    You'll be getting asked to tell them about youself.
    You'll get asked about your experience (all education & work experience)
    You'll get asked anywhere from 5-15 questions to include scenarios and future goals/forecasts.
    and you'll get asked if you have any questions for them.

    I recommend at least reviewing the link posted by fire49.
