Horrible management/low morale
emergency medical technician (Former Employee), Lexington, KYApril 23, 2015
Pros: experience with medical emergencies, the chance to work on quality patient care
Cons: no breaks, poor management, your scheduled work time is never the time you should count on working, low morale.
This was absolutely the worst ambulance service i have ever worked for. As a part timer going to school full time to get into med school with another full time hospital job, it didn't matter that i could only work 3-4 times a month for them. I was given an ultimatum to quit and leave on a good note, or be fired and ineligible for rehire. I have never been told this by any company that i have worked for when they know I'm only part time and attempting to better myself through education. The management and supervision constantly tell you that you will have the opportunity to get off on time, but that never happens. Trucks that are scheduled to get off after you will get let go 2 hours before you. After receiving the ultimatum, i quit and was immediately hired by a local FD who actually cares about their emts and medics. I would never work for them again.

AMR is a great place to work. You have different challenges each day. Management always listens to crew members that are meeting difficult challenges that they can't get through

Fulfilling job
Emergency Medical Technician (Current Employee), West Sacramento, CAApril 20, 2015
Pros: Seeing the gratitude on someones face after you've helped them
Cons: Physical injuries
This job is very hard on the body physically, it requires heavy lifting, and the ability to be able to adapt to stressful situations and sometimes think outside the norm. Logistics are a big part of treating a patient, how to move them, with what equipment, how to treat them while moving them. More often than not you don't meet people at their best. You have to be able to treat their ailment, but to show compassion or just listen to them. The best part of the job is being able to help the person and hopefully fix the reason they called 911 in the first place. The Paramedics and EMT's I work with are some of the best, highly trained people in the industry.

Poor moral with a division between employees
Paramedic (Former Employee), Riverside, CAApril 16, 2015
Long hours with preferential treatment of certain employees by management and dispatchers. Misuse of authority and retaliative punitive measures if actions regarding management were asked. Poor representation by the Union reps, and the division of field employees by a distinct seperation of the division itself.

911 Call Reciever (Former Employee), Springfield, MAApril 8, 2015
I enjoyed learning how to process 911 calls. My co - workers were very helpful. Defusing the caller while dispatching an ambulance was intense but I always kept calm.

Good pay and good co-workers, management is not on your side.
Paramedic (Former Employee), Portland, ORMarch 22, 2015
Pros: liberal field protocols, generally supportive union, competitive salary.
Cons: healthcare plans not progressive, no night differential, seems like a fight for everything during contract negotiations.
Large company that employs a high amount of medics and other emergency personnel. Pay is high and working conditions are acceptable, but management is not part of the union and the separation between supervisors and field employees is fairly distinct. The company also tends to cut corners when it comes to promoting and maintaining employee mental and physical health.

Fun but gets old fast
EMT B (Current Employee), Spokane, WAMarch 17, 2015
Pros: great experience
Cons: easy burn out
AMR was a very exciting job to have at first. But, like every corporate company they like to have fewer people work harder to maximize profit. Makes a fun job old very fast. They don't care for their employees like they should and moral is constantly low.

It improves by focusing on your work strengths, and by being vulnerable and not being afraid of emotional intimacy.In order to be successful in most team environments, it's important to build relationships throughout the organization.
