Paramedic (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIAugust 30, 2015
This company is a great start as a paramedic. They care about quality and advancement is encouraged.
However, in saying that, there is a "certain" type of person they are looking for. Single with kids is not encouraged.
Busy system, if this is what you like. You get a lot of experience in a short time.
Pros
They are the highest paid paramedic on this side of the state
Cons
Judgemental, short transport times.

Emergency Medical Technician (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIAugust 24, 2015
There's a new GM in place. He started strong but hasn't made good on the key things employees wanted to see put in place. Granted EMS is a numbers driven industry but manpower was always an issue. Too many dropped shifts, making those who did show up to work, work entirely too hard.
Pros
Great coworkers.
Cons
System status is a tough way to live on the job.

Emergency Medical Technician (Former Employee) –  Rancho Cucamonga, CAAugust 21, 2015
This is a great place to be if you're looking for emergency service experience. If you're looking to be a paramedic, this is a great place to be, solely due to the fact that you are working with paramedics who allow to pick their brains for further information. Co-workers can range from poor to excellent, if you do not have a set partner you may get along with most and not with others, this is just a personal preference. I enjoyed working here, but would prefer working 24s over their 12 hour or 8 hour cars. Don't come in thinking you will be getting off on time either, you will usually be held over, and that is just the nature of the job.
Pros
Working with Paramedics, overtime, and benefits.
Cons
No 24s (at least in the Rancho/Redlands division), pay.

Paramedic (Current Employee) –  Palm Springs, CAAugust 15, 2015
An amazing division with helpful and supportive management, as well as knowledgeable coworkers. By far the smallest division, but covers the most ground. An extreme amount of diversity in culture, patients, and calls.

Horrible pay, all company decisions are based on profit only.
Employee (Former Employee) –  Boulder, COJuly 25, 2015
Yay let's get paid half of a burger-flipper to save lives and constantly worry about job security and how the company will scrape the bottom of the barrel for vehicles and maintenance.

The personnel were amazing at this company and management legitimately tries to make the best of what they have, but their hands are tied from corporate. In fact, the only issues that this company has is based from the regional level and higher (i.e. compensation, vehicles, maintenance, supplies, municipality contractual requirements, etc.)

Really unfortunate for the employees.
Pros
Exciting everyday, great personnel.
Cons
Pay is downright degrading.

Communications Training Officer (Current Employee) –  Modesto, CAJuly 22, 2015
This position teaches the utmost highest skill training in multitasking, patience, and commitment. My coworkers are extremely supportive with one another and team work is priority. The most difficult part of the job are the long hours and lack of family time due to the high call volume. What I love most about this job is helping people in their most stressful times of their lives.

Vehicle Service technician (Current Employee) –  Burlingame, CAJune 2, 2015
A day at AMR involves cleaning and restocking Ambulances. I have learned the behind the scene work that needs to be done. to make sure the public receives the correct medical treatment. My co-workers are a plus to a day at work and the management is nothing less than that too. There is nothing at my job that isn't manageable, which makes it enjoyable.

Great if you are fresh out of school and have no experience.
Paramedic (Former Employee) –  Evansville IndianaMay 29, 2015
If you need call volume because you are new to EMS, great place to start. Bad place if you are older and not looking to be ran into the ground daily. Can run anywhere between 5-22 calls per truck during 12 hour shift with no relief.
Pros
12 hour shifts with the chance to go on long distance transfers.
Cons
Extremely high call volume. Sometimes unable to stock your truck, never off on time and sometimes forced to work over with no notice.
