Good place to start as New Emt, but over-rated
Emergency Medical Technician (Former Employee) – Murrieta, CA – August 26, 2014
If you can't get into AMR, it's a great place to get your feet wet. Easy interview process. Do not expect any skills testing. The only thing I will say is that they have been going through a lot of changes and employee morale has gone down.
However, the EMTs that work there are very nice and will help you when you need it. Also, expect to get called in to work unexpectedly or to get held over at work. This is the norm for Symons.
Finally, be aware that the 24 hr shifts do not pay between the hours of 10pm-6am if you get 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Yes, it is legal. Other employees have already looked it up.
A lot of BLS calls so minimal 911 response experience here unless you sign up for events. Those are the best!
Otherwise, good starting place for new EMTs. The company needs some improvements.
flexible, able to work at awesome events like concerts and raves!
minimum wage, low employee morale
