Great pay but with long hours, low morale; it doesn't make working here worth it.
Dispatcher I/Call-Taker (Current Employee) – Farmers Branch, TX – March 11, 2017
I love working in the emergency medical field. Every day is a new day with different challenges and situations. There is nothing more rewarding than helping someone through a difficult time, whether it's as simple as reassurance, or walking them through how to help save their loved ones. My schedule helps with me enjoy a personal life with my partner and activities we enjoy doing together.
However, AMR takes alot of the morale out of its employees. They don't offer assistance programs on how to deal with stress or emotional issues associated with this field. The management team, while some are great, most don't seem to grasp the understanding of its employees and what they go through on a day-to-day basis. Its promotional and training programs are not very consistent or thorough, choosing to hire outside individuals instead of promoting within and not providing enough resources to train its employees.
Excellent schedule, competitive pay
Long work hours, large work load
