Great experience
Patient Care Report Auditor (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYApril 23, 2014
It was great to be a part of an important team regarding pre-hospital patient care. I have learned and gained valuable experience throughout the years I have worked within the company. Good opportunity for advancement and career growth. Can be very stressful but at the end of the day its rewarding when we can help someone in need.

EMT- Basic
EMT-Basic (Former Employee), Springfield, MAApril 23, 2014
A typical day at work consists of checking the ambulance ensuring that all equipment and medical supplies are accounted for. After everything is checked, employees then sign on with dispatch and await instruction for posting location/transfer/911.

No supervisor accountability
Paramedic (Former Employee), Austin, TexasApril 21, 2014
Pros: patients are wonderful
Cons: horrible management....
After 3 yrs of being employed at the Austin ,TX office, I was shocked that they could still be in business. Paramedics carrying expired drugs, non-working trucks, radios, time clocks, etc. I personally have had 8 schedule changes and went threw 5 supervisors. Absolutely no accountability from supervisors.
One super, can talk a lot but doesn't say anything – more... but lies. One of the training officer was let go from other employment, due to personal pornography at work,(ref. Austin American Statesman news coverage)
One super quit because they were instructed to hold a 12 hour crew over for another 12 hours,,,they refused and were threatened with termination.
Dispatchers constantly sent crew and units to wrong locations, at least 4 times a week. VERY BAD PLACE TO WORK. The patients and Co-workers were the only good thing about this job... – less

Good company to off at and gain experience from.
Business Development Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 26, 2014
Pros: good benefits, good hrs.
Cons: unorganized, unhappy employees, no room for promotion.
American Medical Response allowed me to challenge myself and to find creative ways to sell. I enjoyed going out into the field and meeting clients face to face building a relationship with them. However, It was a very competitive and corrupt business. We were an honest company who followed compliance therefore lacking business forcing the Brooklyn base – more... to close. This I would say was the hardest part of my job. If I didn't produce enough business, I'd have to answer to my boss. There was a lot of pressure on everyone, causing stress. I really liked some of my co workers and are still in contact with a few of them. They also offered great benefits to their employees. It's a shame the Brooklyn based was closed due to poor business. – less

Tragic and always in a transition
emtb (Former Employee), Austin, TXFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: no comment
Tragic and always in transition. Within the 3 1/2 years I worked for AMR I went through 4 supervisors. And one of which wasn't even EMT certified. The operations I worked for was clearly looked at as "red headed step-child" and viewed from the rest of the company as 'a joke'.

Tensed, walking on egg shells environment
Billing Coordinator (Former Employee), Wailuku, HawaiiFebruary 24, 2014
Pros: good pay and good hours
Cons: no raise or bonus for ten years +
I worked as a billing coordinator at this company for twenty years. The last 15 years was a struggle. Management was poor and unprofessional. Favoritism was a HUGE problem. I feel that I was a victim of workplace bullying which is not against the law. Although I had excellent yearly evaluations, I couldn't do anything right. I had claws on my back and – more... eyes on me every second of the day. I was called in for every little thing you can imagine. The director was no help either all my concerns were never addressed and the manager was always found in favor. The year I made twenty years, they said I did something wrong and even though my co-workers were involved too, I was the only one they let go. (go figure) When I contacted H/R some of the information provided that lead to their decision to let me go was based on false and inaccurate information. I couldn't fight it because the corporation hires as "at will" so they can get rid of you anytime they felt like it. Why I stayed so long? you might ask. Because I had to do what I had to do to support my family of four young children. I would never consider working there again, even if they offered me a million dollars. – less
