Basic airspace weather mins.
Question: If the patient is dying, your med crew is yelling at you to get to a hospital but you think weather might be bad, do you continue?"
Question: If the weather looks good but your crew is uncomfortable with (whatever) do you go?
Question: Have you ever exceeded a limit, or damaged an aircraft? (reported or not)
Question: Have you ever been asked to compromise your integrity?
Question: Is a hot dog a sandwich? (Ok, you caught me, they didn't ask this)
When I interviewed they said since it was a union job they had a standard interview that they had to do with every applicant, so the interview was catered to the lowest common denominator.
All they expect you to do is be a safe, honest, competent pilot. They'll teach you the EMS stuff, the part 135 stuff etc... Honestly if you're being interviewed for a base it's probably your job to lose, so don't sweat it.
Good luck, Yossarian. (That's a catch-22 reference, in case you missed it)

Wow, thank you so much for your insight. And of course I got the Yossarian reference! Is there a flight portion of the interview process or is it all verbal?
There could be a flight portion but they didn't fly me. I was working at a company flying 130's and had a couple thousand hours between 130's and 350's so I guess they assumed I'd be ok. Another EMS company flew me after the interview and the flight was a normal and steep approach, no radio calls/navigation/anything.
And I pointed out the C-22 reference in case any dunces roll through here Can't count on everyone on the forum being such wise and well read individuals such as you and I.
