Careflite DFW


Anyone have any experience with Careflite Dallas? I'm just out of EMT school and I'm interviewing with them Monday. How do compare to AMR? I've interviewed there as well.

Is working for Careflite as a new EMT generally though
of as a better opportunity than AMR? Thanks for the feedback, I'm new and this is the only place I've been able to get any questions answered.

I would say so. CareFlite has a better rep and much better pay for new EMTs starting out.
