Trainees work on rotating shifts. Shifts are rotated every four weeks during training. Shift assignments and day off rotations for PST trainees who have achieved a solo work status are determined by our scheduling supervisor until the full training program is complete (Call Taker, Teletype, and Dispatch).

At the beginning of each six-month bid cycle, solo PST Trainees will be placed on a shift and assigned a day off rotation for that bid. Once dispatch training has been completed, shift assignments and day off rotations are determined by the bid process. The bid takes place every six months and is seniority based.

Once a solo work status has been reached, all employees may be required to work mandatory overtime.

Employees have a 30-minute lunch break and two 15-minute breaks per day.
