EMT (Current Employee), Brooklyn,ny – February 21, 2014
I currently work here. They pay you $11.00 and act like they are doing you a favor. The supervisors are all wannabes and the busses are always broken. They give you a 1-9 shift every day but plan on staying till at least 11pm every night. Go out of state and get a better transport job. It starts at $14 an hour in NJ.
Paramedic (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NY – December 19, 2013
Working in EMS has taught me that no two days are the same and to expect the unexpected. You have to be able to adapt to change while keeping a sharp decision making capacity. Patients, customers or clients are not the same. Even though their dispositions may present the same, the outcomes can change rapidly, drastictly, or not change at all. However, – more... you have to be able to address it accordingly for the best possible results. In the fields I have expererienced, there is one thing I have learned is that when you deal with people, your service to the public must be impeccable. The joy you create for your career must come from within. Monetary fullfilment will only last as long as the monies permits, which is usually short term. Create a pleasurable working environment by empowering others to lead, respect and be courteous. – less

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Baltimore, MD – July 31, 2013
Co-workers are nice and very assisting with knowledege of the position. Standards and expectations was established and presented by Supervisor, who was also very understanding. Training was very efficient and effectively helped with position.
I was with them for 6 years, & finally left in 2011. Management began to cut shifts because the company was losing contracts to Midwood & AMR. Subsequently finding ways to fire older staff (making more money). Only respectable manager there was Big Papi, everyone else was heartless & did not care about the staff. HR is never around to help you when – more... you need them, but around to fire someone always. Your ambulance hardly every works, they are big on favoritism also. NEW YORK EMTS DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AT TRANSCARE! – less
Driver/EMT (Current Employee), New Castle, DE – May 3, 2013
Pros: 12 hour shifts, only work 3 days a week.
Cons: everything else.
Downright terrible company to work for. The supervisor constantly gloats that shes the boss and doesn't listen to anything you have to say. The quartermasters think they are big shots when mamma boss is away but can't help you with anything either. No one wants to work there but have to to put food on the table so everyone is constantly miserable. Fellow – more... employees will stab you in the back. The vehicles...dear god I'm at a loss on how to explain such poor equipment. The facility itself is comparable to a garbage dump. The carpet in the office is stained and dirty. There's expired medications laying around. The garage portion is constantly an unsafe environment from multiple oil slicks left behind by the poorly maintained vehicles. Outside, there is cigarette filters, dirty gloves and trash laying around. The dispatch office is located in Paoli, PA and its a good thing too. The dispatchers are constantly screwing things up. It's almost like they don't think of the amount of crews when scheduling transports so the whole system gets backed up and pickups are later, sometimes hours late making the patients (our client) mad but dispatchers don't have to interact with them so they don't care. I could go on all day about all the negative things about this place.The one good thing about this place is no one wants to work so there is ample of opportunity for overtime if you care handle the misery. – less
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee), Paoli, PA – April 25, 2013
Pros: being out of the office, working clients one-on-one
Cons: company downsizing and position being eliminated
This company started me with a scheduler position then quickly moved me into a customer service mgr. I loved going to area hopspitals buying them lunch and getting to know thier needs from our company. As an ambulance company we wanted to increase our customer service skills from the employees and give the clients more of a professional appeal. I was – more... able to increase productivity by 20% my 1st year. Providing productive mandatory classes to the drivers and emt's, we were able to band together and make the company a much better enviroment. – less
Employee (Former Employee), Paoli, Pa – April 24, 2013
Was with "Transcare" long before Transcare was around Delaware Valley. Loved my job of almost 12 years. Within 3 years the current Management Team has distroyed what several of us spent years building. Thought it best to leave when the GM asked me to "take this money, and move it over here, that way if we get caught, we can just call it an error." Shame – more... on you for treating one of the only contracts you have left like that. – less
