Dispatcher/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – February 22, 2017
AMR is an exciting place to work, from taking high pressure 911 phone calls to dispatching out the multiple calls you receive. You learn how to manage your resources and how to problem solve. It's a great place for team work, we all rely heavily on each other for information and help with everyday tasks. The best part of this job is that you are able to help people. You are the first contact they make with help, you're able to get them the help they need. It is nice to follow through with the cases to see how the patient is helped.
Medical Benefits, fast paced enviroment, Opportunities for advancement and continued education.

I enjoyed this job and enjoyed the details of the job. Had the office not closed in 2013, I would still be working there. We were given a 2 week notice at Christmas that Dec 31st the doors would close.
Good pay, good place to work
Never knowing who you work with or the calls you will get
Overall, American Medical Response is a very relaxed and comfortable place to work.
Emergency Medical Technician (Current Employee) – Riverside, CA – March 23, 2016
A typical day at American Medical Response includes, clocking in at the main office,and checking out the ambulance to see what supplies are needed. Once we gather our supplies, we then drive over to one of our comfort stations and wait for a call to come in. Our calls vary from clients complaining of shoulder pain, to transporting people back to convalescent centers from the hospital, to abdominal discomfort at a dialysis center. I have learned from past experience that some nurses don't always give accurate information in regards to their clients. Management for the most part is very friendly and fair as long as your not a problem employee. Co-workers at the company tend to get along quite well. The hardest part of the job is dealing with family members when a loved one has pasted away. The most enjoyable part of being an EMT at AMR is interacting with the public.
Interacting with the public. Having a client tell me that I did a wonderful job.
Dealing with extremely violent psychiatric clients.
