Acadian is a good place to work.
NREMT- Basic (Former Employee) – Laplace, LA – January 17, 2015
Acadian is a great place for the brand new EMT or Paramedic to start and learn what pre-hospital care is like. Acadian pays poorly and they do not pay for experience but they do have the Employee Stock Option Program ( ESOP) because Acadian is employee owned. Acadian also runs their own EMS Academy, the National EMS Academy or NEMSA. Acadian has fix and rotary wing aircraft,t if one desires to be a flight Paramedic and theSafety Management System for any medics looking to go work offshore. I really liked working for Acadian and all the avenues one could travel and grow within the company, however, the pay was too little for living in the City of New Orleans. Acadian hires throughout Louisiana, Coastal Mississippi and South East Texas. I would work for Acadian again if only the rate of pay were more.
