Amazing Co-workers / horrible company
Lifecom Dispatcher (Former Employee), Modesto, CANovember 21, 2013
Typical Day at Work: answering 911 calls, along with non-emergency calls. Keeping reporting parties calm while giving life saving medical instructions. Setting up non-emergency medical transfers for medical facilities

What I learned: customer experience, dealing with stressful situations.

Management: worst of any company I've worked at. Love to point – more... fingers at employees, never take responsibility for their actions and constantly micromanage

Co-workers: best part about AMR, great group of people to work with

Hardest part: dealing with other peoples' emergency situations

Most Enjoyable/Rewarding parts: helping people through very stressful situations. Saving lives. – less

High stress job. Able to be out all day in the community, with down time.
Emergency Medical Technician (Former Employee), Irwindale, CANovember 17, 2013
Pros: free lunches at many hospitals, lots of overtime if you wanted it.
Cons: long hours, being in high stress situations
Twelve hour shifts, driving the ambulance and giving basic medical care to sick and injured patients. Transporting them to hospitals and nursing home facilities. I learned how the 911 system works and how to work calmly in high stress situations. The hardest part of the job was lifting and carrying heavy patients down flights of stairs and tight spaces, – more... also working the graveyard shift having to stay up all night. The most enjoyable was the bond you had with fellow EMT's and the sense of being able to help people at a time in there life that was at it's worst. Also being thanked by family members for taking good care of there loved ones. – less

Interesting calls and great co workers
EMT-Paramedic (Current Employee), palm springsNovember 13, 2013
Pros: job security
Cons: long, very hot days in the desert in the summer
AMR has been an excellent company to work for but I have been on an ambulance for many years and I would love to work in a hospital setting. The hardest parts of the job involve carrying very heavy people downstairs, dealing with extreme heat, and at times being very bored just waiting for calls.
I would prefer to have a lot of tasks and to be constantly – more... on the move accomplishing things. A job in an ER, doing 12 leads, vitals, possibly IV's and drawing blood (also a phlebotomist), would really suit me. I really enjoy the 12 hour shifts because it allows for a few days a week off to do other things. – less

AMR
Emergency Medical Technician (Current Employee), Redlands, CANovember 5, 2013
My favorite part of this job is being outdoors and not being watched every second of your work day by management. When we receive our call, we do our duty and take care of the patient(s), and when we are not running a call, we are able to relax.

Information Technology Manager (Former Employee), Torrance, CANovember 5, 2013
Pros: great projects and team work
Cons: compensation could have been better
Great time working at this company. Management was supportive and allowed you to make your own decisions. Always busy with projects and never had anyone complain. The only bad part was it all came to an end.

Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee), Gulfport, MSOctober 29, 2013
Great job, but too much drama and gossip. The people were nice, to your face.

As far as the job, good pay for just typing in data. Room for growth and promotions.

Good to gain experience, but get out soon
Emergency Medical Technician (Current Employee), Independence, MOOctober 19, 2013
Pros: the job itself was great, most coworkers were awesome
Cons: bad management, bad equipment, poor advancement opportunites
The job itself was really awesome, and it's one of the few places that will hire with little to no experience. But there is no opportunity for career advancement and the turnover rate is ridiculous. Management's sole purpose is to save the company money at any expense: Outdated equipment, ambulances that are falling apart, no raises for the employees, – more... very little overtime. If you don't suck up to the bosses, it's only a matter of time before they find some silly reason to fire you. – less

Egh, how can I not be offensive
Paramedic (Former Employee), CAOctober 11, 2013
Pros: the schedule offers a lot of off time and vacation
Cons: it is a stepping stone, do not stay too long or they get rid of you.
Depending on who your partner is you can have a really good day or a really bad one. most shifts are 24 hours long, which is a traditional style of EMS; but there are more than enough EMT's and Paramedics where they could run 8 hour shifts for no problem. Every operation is different and upper management is completely disconnected from middle management – more... and middle management has unrealistic ideas of what actually happens in the field.

I learned a lot here, continuing education is a requirement and they do offer only what is required of them.

Some operations have a good crew that really jells together and you can build life long friendships. Other operations are not so friendly. The most enjoyable part is the patient care, sometimes you do actually get to change a patients life. 90% of EMS is BS though. – less
