Typical day at work for AMR
Emergency Medical Technician (Current Employee) – Redlands, CA – December 10, 2017
For the most part i enjoy working for AMR, I have been here for 5 years. Most people are nice and fun to work with. This company is the only company that holds a 911 contract with Riverside County, and it is a good place to gain experience for any further medical job in ones future. The hardest part of the job is getting no breaks and no lunch breaks, no down time either for the most part. We are not paid what we should be, our healthcare also is not what it should be considering we are running calls on very sick people, and if we get sick, our insurance doesnt cover much. Management is better at the Riverside division than the Redlands division where i used to work. I feel i can actually approach and talk to my supervisors, theyre friendly and seem to really care about their crews and their happiness the best they can. The best part of the job, is seeing things most dont see, and getting to figure out what to do with paitents. All agencies work as a team and its amazing what comes out of a bad situation when we all work together. Also, if you ever do get down time, you can study if youre in school, or even run your errands. You and your partner are free and on your own for 12 hours if you look at it that way. Ive gained much experience working here and i wouldnt trade it for anything in the world.
If you have time between calls, you can run your errands or study for school.
no lunch breaks, bad healthcare, not paid enough, not enough ambulances on the road for the call volume, we dont get any break usually in a 12 hour shift.
