Event Firefighter (Current Employee), Dover, DEDecember 7, 2014
The job of EMT is a very fun and rewarding job. The hours for the most part are very flexible and the job has its benefits. You could have no calls in a day or you could have 12 calls in a 12 hour shift. It just depends on the day. You are constantly learning whether it's from reading an EMS magazine or on the job experience. Co-Workers for the most – more... part are easy to work with as well as the management. – less

Hard job with low pay and little to no benefits.
On-site Medical Technician (Current Employee), Hattiesburg, MSNovember 25, 2014
Pros: great base for higher medical field knowledge
Cons: long hours, low pay
Being an EMT provides a person who wants to continue higher into the field of medicine with a great foundation. However, upward mobility at most private companies is slow if it happens at all. The job is very demanding with long hours and very low pay. The position of EMT can also be a catapult for someone looking to join the Safety field, as most employers – more... of safety professionals require a background in first aid and CPR. Good job, to use as a stepping stone but not for a career. After 5 years, and a back surgery, I am leaving the field of actual street ambulance work. – less

NREMT (Current Employee), Broken Bow, OKNovember 12, 2014
A typical day at work consists of enjoying the time you have with your co-worker. You live with this person a 1/3 of your life so you learn real fast how to get along with them. My co-workers are very pleasant people. Down to earth and willing to help anyone who needs it by offering words of encouragement or by constructional criticism. The hardest – more... part of my job is obviously death and seeing the hurt in a loved one eyes. The rewarding part is knowing that I get to help someone in their darkest hour. – less

Former Dialysis Coordinator (Former Employee), West Columbia, SCOctober 18, 2014
Pros: owner bought uniforms, good insurance which he paid half, didn't take out for lunch, owner was a very caring person and would do anything for anyone.
Cons: poor management and communication.
A typical day at work was challenging when trying to coordinate with my dispatchers and crews in getting our dialysis patient's to their destination on time and picking them up on time to return home. Alot of times it was stressful, especially when you were down a truck and had to juggle the other crew members. I didn't know much about being a supervisor, – more... but I learned alot about the challenges they face on a day to day basis. We worked hard and together and they became a great dispatch team. As the Dialysis Coordinator I enjoy helping meet the needs of our dialysis patients. They were very special to me and I was proud to work with a company that helped with expenses for things like pillows and blankets. Over all it was a great place to get experience. Unfortunately things didn't work out for me to continue my employment there. I came away a better person and now more committed to finishing my nursing degree to work with dialysis patients. – less
