horrible department ,horrible director/assistant director
APCD (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – May 6, 2016
Horrible management, director and assistant director. Every single department that dealt with the upper management complained about the communication, how they were treated and talked to. There is no training program, throw one another under the bus mentality, no room for growth or development, hard work environments, treated poorly by the public, no work ethics or morale. It was very stressful and uncomfortable in the office areas. Departments in the same agency did not communicate with you and treated you poorly. Bad management style. Do NOT allow for management the ability to turn anything around on you. Everything will be used against you with no accountability or responsibility. Management will not stand up for you.

I would like to work with a company that has more flexibility with my schedule on a day to day basis. I deal with many people and my clients have different hours that they work at most times. I would like to be able to meet those needs for them.

You'll have no life. The only good about working there is the pay (and it was also better with the old contract) and retirement. 16 hour shifts every shift, no break (as in, never stopping), no chance to eat, breathe.
pay and retirement
hours, lost good benefits with last contract, command structure
Increasing workload, decreasing benefits and lacks recognition
Service Level Manager (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – September 1, 2015
Work/Life balance is beginning to shift. Work loads are increasing and the once great benefits that made up for the lower wages are decreasing. Employees are often overlooked for promotions. External candidates are hired. Once hired upward mobility is very difficult. Wages are not competitive with market.
Paid holidays, personal time & sick time
Management easily impressed by narcissistic personalities
Former Employee Paramedic (Former Employee) – Louisville, Kentucky – April 25, 2014
Take two amazing EMS services; combine them and you get a terrible service that is still trying to find itself. The management is a joke. The "Good Ole Boy" system rules all. If you're in the "IN" crowd then you are golden. If not, well lets just say you won't last long.
Forced overtime almost every shift, Management has no clue how to run an EMS system, Constantly out of resources due to poor management and lack of retention
Admin assistant (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 21, 2013
I worked for Metro for a decade. It really laid back but hard to advance in certain departments. Sometimes its hard to transfer to different departments even if you have a wonderful interview and the qualifications.
Somewhat challenging but rewarding duties, lots of days off
Community Health Service Clerk (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 13, 2013
I enjoy my work each and every moment every day with current guide lines of the WIC regulations. I follow the instructions from my superiors, enjoy working with the co-works. I never feel any moment is hardest because i am enjoing my work all the time.
A typical day at work is checking emails, voice mail and seeing the agenda for that work day. I interacted with the public and several successful companies. Work well with management meeting all KPI's. Work well with co-workers. The hardest part of my job was trying to complete investigation with not enough evidence.
