Love being an EMT
NREMT (Current Employee), Center Point, IAMarch 6, 2015
I am a volunteer EMT with a small town ambulance service. Even though it's only a volunteer service, it is very much worth it. I really enjoy my time there. We don't get very many calls, but working ambulance and knowing that you get to make a difference in peoples' lives is amazing.

It was great experience
Driver/operator of emergency apparatuses (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLFebruary 28, 2015
I typically worked 12 hour shifts and I recommend it for EMT's with no working experience. I enjoyed working with almost all of my co-workers and it's a great place to get your foot in the door. They also offer flexible schedules and there are constantly shifts your can pick up. The only con I can think of is the pay, becuase they don't offer many pay raises.

Productive and fun learning experiences and valuable 911 experience
Intern-EMT (Current Employee), Gloucester Township EMS Blackwood, NJFebruary 3, 2015
Getting to work before my shift starts to go through our rig checklist to make sure everything we need is in the ambulance. During the course of the day going on various calls and gaining experience with patient care, taking vitals writing patient care reports. While at the station helping my partners with cleaning projects and various things that need to be done. Reading ems articles and books/protocols to keep the information fresh in my mind. The hardest part of the job i would have to say is seeing some of the scenes you come into, its not always easy to see somethings. The absolute best part of my job is getting to help and take care of people. Even if it is just holding someones hand because they are scared, it makes all the difference to them and that is what i am in this business to do, take care of patients to the best of my ability and do all that i can for them. I've learned alot while interning here, i've learned it is not what we do to our patients, but rather what we do for them that means everything. My coworkers are some the best people i know and i am better having known them. Management is great i get along with them all and am thankful for the wonderful opportunity they have given me.

Something new everyday
Security Supervisor, Chuckchansi (Former Employee), Madera, CAJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: good work place
Cons: benefits where just not there.
Fast paced and a good job over all, I enjoyed working with the public and training new officers who where just coming on board. There was a lot of responsibility moving large amounts of currency off the floor to the vault or bank area. Plus handling any medical or criminal emergencies.

Absolutely love the job and what I do there.
EMS Plant Supervisor (Current Employee), Youngstown, OHJanuary 8, 2015
Pros: endless training opportunities
Cons: no room for advancement and poor pay
I have learned so much about the industrial aspect of EMS as well as training in safety and environmental. I have developed many new protocols and training matrixes and to see the benefits as a result of those is so gratifying. My coworkers are great, together we work well as a team. The hardest Part is the commute and the fact that there is no room to advance my career, I feel like the knowledge I've gained is priceless and I am eager to learn more. The most enjoyable part of the job is being inside the mill, I have a whole new appreciation for the men and women who work in the steel industry.

Paramedic/part time (Current Employee), Morganton, NCJanuary 8, 2015
A high stress career with multiple benefits. The over all job is a good career choice for that of an individual who truly enjoys helping others when they tend to be at there worst, both physically and sometimes mentally. This is not a career for one who holds high regard of receiving praise for a job well done, it is more for the enjoyment of helping others when they tend to need it most.
