Do you want to work in a fast-paced and challenging environment? Maybe you’re looking for something more relaxed? Oddly enough, a career at 9-1-1 can provide both day-to-day, and even moment-to-moment. It’s been rightly said that dispatchers aren’t paid for what they do, but are paid for what they’re ready to do.
There are a couple of things we can offer to prepare you for a career at 9-1-1. Most importantly is coming down and spending a few hours observing dispatchers at work. We’ll help you get that set up after you apply.
You don’t have to be a typing master to work here, but you definitely need to know your way around a keyboard. Rather than the traditional words per minute (WPM) test, a keystrokes per hour (KPH) test is more in line with what we do here.
W-Y Communications has an open application process, which means we’re always accepting applications, even when we’re fully staffed. It’s better to have applications on hand when we need them.
Indeed.com is definitely the easiest way for you to apply, but if you’re more traditional, you can download our application, fill it out, and return it to us via fax, to our PO Box, or in person.
