Solid start to your career
Refuse Driver (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PADecember 28, 2014
Pros: early start, some weekends
Cons: advancement, pay
My experience is in the Refuse Department. The only plus to the department is that you have a chance to leave work early when your route is complete beside that there are no real perks to choosing this department to work for at all. We work on Saturdays after every holiday, so family time is cut short during the important times of the year. I would suggest to anyone to try other departments first but if you need to a job to earn a paycheck for the time being there's plenty of trash out there for everyone.

Highest paying EMS job in the area
Emergency Medical Technician-Paramedic (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMarch 16, 2012
Pros: uniform quartermaster program, paid continuing education
Cons: must live within the city limits
Although there is the ability to make money by working overtime and special events, the schedule is not very family-friendly. Great experience gained from very busy service with a high call volume. Duties are physically demanding due to terrain and geographical area with many residences being difficult to access. Bargaining unit has failed to secure a contract 15 months after previous contract has expired.
