Very Good Place to work, If you want to work
CCT Paramedic (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 19, 2016
I have been a part of the Acadian Team for years. I came to North Texas after experiencing the Louisiana side of operations. In the last year, this area has grown not only on the business end, but the personal end. The management has changed and a new culture of positive rather than negative reinforcement has emerged. EMT's and Paramedics have received across the board raises to bring the pay up to market rates. Although the issues with dispatch will happen no matter where you work, the management team in north Texas has somewhat reigned in the sometimes overzealous dispatchers. The management team is actually standing up for their employees now instead of blowing off their complaints. We still get off late, but I chalk that up to being in ems. Since the new management staff has taken over last year, we have lost a bunch of employees who quite frankly, we did not need anyway. They were against the new management team for a reason. Good managers would sniff them out and replace them. We have an awesome team now and I am proud to say I am an Acadian Employee Owner. We have great medics, emt's van operators and yes, I'll say it, we have great leaders. This is a job that has plenty of opportunity for advancement if you want that. Van Operators are sent to Emt school. Emt's are sent to Paramedic school. Paramedics are sent to CCT school and as soon as you become a Paramedic, you are eligible to move into management.
State of the art equipment, Progressive protocols, Good management, competitive pay, Good friends
Still get off late, pay could always be better, long hours
