Fulfilling job with great people.
Emergency Medical Technician (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – October 16, 2014
Work would usually start with checking all necessary truck supplies to transport medical patients by stretcher. Then we would begin taking calls to move patients by stretcher between a variety of healthcare facilities. During transport we would check vitals, take a medical history, do paperwork, and care for and comfort the patient. I learned a great deal about dealing with people, medicine, and working long hours.
My co-workers were generally great. I met a lot of awesome people.
Management was generally there to help you with any problem you had.
The hardest part of my job was the long periods of driving we sometimes had to endure most often between Houston and Austin.
The most enjoyable part of the job was feeling like we made a positive difference in someones life, or their families lives. We got to run NICU calls sometimes that were very heartwarming.
free lunches, friendly co-workers
