Upon Meeting all qualifications, recruits will interviewed with a panel consisting of at least two members of the administrative staff, most often the Executive Director and the Operations Manager.
Post interview, potential candidates will be scheduled to experience the dispatch environment in a four-hour session. This session is critical to the Center as well as to the potential candidates, as some recruits realize the enormity to the task ahead of them and conclude that dispatching may not suit them.
After the dispatch session the Executive Director, with input from the Operations Manager and Team Leaders, will choose the best candidate (s) for the open position and an offer of employment will be made.
