A typical day at work is being sent across the county for calls and trying to keep from trouble. Management is constantly trying fire employees. The most enjoyable part of this job is being with happy co-workers and helping people in need.

Terrible Morale. Low pay, long hours. In a corporation you are just a number. Very few ways of billing in ems so overhead inhibits good pay. ems is just bad in general when it comes to making a decent income.
This company lost contract to MED1 and I transferred with them doing the same job. I enjoy working with the staff and we always work as a team to make the patient and their families pleased with their service.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

A great family to work with. Terrible benefits and dont expect to have any help with your schedule if you plan on going to school. Dont expect to have any consideration when you need a specific schedule.

AMR has a positive work environment with room for growth. They are constantly looking at the future of medical transportation and making adjustments accordingly while maintaining the integrity within the industry.
opportunity for growth
Team Leads should be at a higher rate of pay for work tasks

No one will have your back but you. SMCO is a fun county to work in and most of your coworkers are great but there are the few that ruin it. Management here doesn't really care what happens to you as long as there is a warm body in the seat so the bus is available.

daily emergency care and transportation of public needing medical care from onset tEducation is a needed item to help the public more understand their health conditions. co-workers work together with almost no communication needed when treating the public from many hours of training. not being able to save everyone from the uncontrolled circumstances of life. knowing that we have provided more advanced care to further someones life one day at a time.
EMT-B (Former Employee) – Washington City, DC – November 15, 2016
This company is run by a group of liars who take advantage of employees. No overtime, they will run you into the ground, and they do not care about employees. DO NOT WORK HERE. They will find any excuse to fire people. You will be run into the ground and no supervisors will care. The most enjoyable part of the job was the days where I was off work.
EMT-B (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – November 8, 2016
Good Company to work for to get your feet wet and foot in the door Management is usually fair and consent Coworkers for the most part are laid back Pay is Ok but could and should def be paid more Hardest part of the job is knowing what to do Enjoyable part is Laid Back staff
poorly managed. Terrible Education and clinical oversight
emt (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – November 5, 2016
I would not recommend this company especially in Austin. The management is poorly trained, retaliatory, and have even worse clinical oversight. The ODS supervisors have extremely poor training and actually advise legally questionable orders
Emergency Medical Technician (Former Employee) – Brockton, MA – October 27, 2016
You never know what is in store, depending on what town you are covering/working in. You may be a glorified taxi or you may have the chance to experience something above your scope of practice, while working within your scope of practice. Lots of lifting and paperwork. Unhappy patients, to very sick patients. You need to love helping others and have a strong stomach at times.
Emergency Medical Technician (Current Employee) – Pompano Beach, FL – September 23, 2016
Working at AMR is not as hard as one would think once you get the hang of it. Just do your part and everything else will follow. I enjoy working with the majority of the people here at this company. I learn something new everyday. Reciprocity is the key to working here. Be nice and others will be nice back. Just be yourself, care for people, do your job to the best of your ability, and truly enjoy what it is that you're doing.
Learn new things daily, get to be interactive with people, flexible schedule, can pick up shifts whenever you want.
Pay is very low, you will have to work beyond the time that your shift ends.
Dispatcher/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – September 18, 2016
Wonderful work experience A hard job that I studied and worked very hard to understand and succeed. My co-workers all made me feel comfortable when I started out and I gained many friendships. Typical day at work would be helping people out over the phones whether it was booking transportation or just send a help to their emergencies.
