Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Livermore, CA – October 1, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: short breaks
Great place to help at. My co-workers were great, hardest part was it's a full day, and the human resources department is a tough one and I'm not an office person, I prefer not to be in a bat cage all day, but I did enjoy interacting with everyone, and being part and effective on the job.
Accounts Receivable Medicare Representative (Former Employee), Gulfport, MS – September 22, 2014
I did not get to work for AMR for very long due to my relocation, but while there I found the work very interesting. As they were one of few companies that was willing to hire me right out of school it was a great learning environment.
Customer Service Representative/ Dispatcher (Former Employee), Houston, TX – September 11, 2014
Pros: hour lunches and free parking.
Cons: expensive health insurance. part time position
A typical day at work would be answering and resolving patients issues. I learned how to be patient and deal with irate people. Management was fair. Co-workers were quiet and focused on their work. The hardest part of the job was trying to obtain a full-time position. The most enjoyable part of the job was being appreciated by patients' whose problem I resolved.
Fun to work family oriented before the big lay off happen

EMT (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NY – August 30, 2014
A typical day at work was fast-paced, physically and emotionally challenging but also very rewarding. Patient interaction and well as interaction with staff in and around NYC provided me with the opportunity to learn valuable skills on a daily basis.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Clearwater – August 25, 2014
The worst job ever.The pay sucks you cant make a living.They lie and tell you oh you will get a raise and nothing ever happens.The mangers dont know how to mangage they explain your job description and – more... you end up doing nothing they said you would be doing.You do everyone else job while they does nothing every one else job for $8.50 hr.not worth it. At least knowledge the employee they dont even do that.This is not a real company.They steal money from the goverment and make false trips to pocket money.All they want you to do is only go to lunch and no other breaks unless its on lunch.Supervisor never want to handle calls even when client ask for one they tell you to handle it.This job is embarrassment and they should even be open unless they get the right manaagment in the office.Make changes this is not a job to be proud of there is no room to grow with the company.Had to find a better job a real job that you can be proud of.this is not the way is a non long term company smh .Until now do yourself a favor and do waist your time.1000 THUMBS DOWN still counting – less
Paramedic (Former Employee), Cleveland, OH – August 23, 2014
This is the worst company I have ever worked for. The supervisors do not care about you. Its all about the money. The equipment is terrible, the ambulances I mean vans are run down and falling apart. Have – more... a problem about your equipment? Don't worry, the supervisor will get back to you within the next century....maybe. Have a family emergency at home? Don't worry they will make sure you get your write up for calling off. Need to go to the bathroom? Don't worry we'll make sure to run you to death without a break.
I really enjoy reading the reviews from the office personnel. You have no clue how the field employees are treated. – less
Emergency Medical Technician / Paramedic intern (Former Employee), Santa Rosa, CA – August 15, 2014
Pros: diverse assignments, working breaks, spectacular culture, overtime.
Cons: working breaks, diverse assignments, overtime
Working for AMR is not for the faint hearted. While it is one of the best jobs I've ever had, it is a place where you get what you put in. Outside of the office there is no typical work day. Each day brings – more... something different and the work environment can change in a matter of minutes. In my tenure at AMR I've experienced working conditions that range from friendly and casual to hostile and downright unsafe and back all within the same day! There is no way to list all that I've learned here. Management is supportive, your co-workers can become a part of your family, and excellence is mandatory. The hardest part of this job is adjusting to the learning curve and dealing with on duty stress. I most enjoyed the varying challenges presented to me on a daily basis. This is a rare company where job duties can go from "fun and games" to "life and death" in the blink of an eye. I loved almost every minute of it. – less
