    Good luck on the interview! I hope you get the job! With the way the economy is now, I'm thankful for my USN retirement check and with my job as an EMT, there's always job security. I'll keep you on my prayer list!

    Good luck on the interview. No idea what questions they will ask but here's a couple common interview questions:

    What are your strengths?

    What are your weakness's?

    And various situational questions. (Have you ever - and how did you handle it)

    One very rare question - just to see how you react and respond to something that catch's you off guard is: Why are manhole covers round? Not really any wrong answers (correct answer is - so they can't fall through the hole) - but mostly looking at your respond to something unexpected.

    Good luck on your interview. Jobs are a little hard to find nowadays, especially in states like Michigan.

    Besides a pen and paper, take a copy of your resume.

    If they ask specific questions, you can refer to your resume.

    Sometimes, when a person is nervous, they tend to forget things. A copy of the resume will help.

    Prior to the interview, jot down some questions that you will want to ask, i.e. starting pay, hours, possibility of promotion, etc.

    Always be confident during an interview. Answer the questions with confidence. But, don't run off at the mouth.

    An interview is your opportunity to make yourself shine.

    Congratulations. I worked for Brinks when I first seperated from Active Duty. You'll have fun. Also good luck during the interview process, it can be lengthy depending on the position applied for. Driving test, DOT physical, polygraph, etc. Again congrats and good luck.
