Emergency Medical Technician (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDJanuary 21, 2015
Pros: coworkers, good contracts, and leadership that cares
Cons: horrible ambulance's, bad equipment, shifts can be greatly extended her greatly reduced based upon the need of that day
Transcare does the best with what little they have. What they lack in equipment they make up for in heart. A great place to start your EMT-B career!!

Unprofessional!
EMT (Former Employee), Westchester, NYJanuary 8, 2015
Pros: free uniforms
Cons: everything else
I have walked into the base several times to see co-workers gambling and drinking! Equipment is out dated, buses break down, scheduler never accommodates reasonable requests, staff over steps their duties/positions all the time. Company shows favoritism to the same employees. Moral their is the lowest of any company I've worked at. Overtime/special events go to the same favorites over and over again. Company requires you to list all OTC and Rx medications you are taking when taking their company drug tests which is against HIPPA rules. Company uses minor infractions against you to do questionable duties, knowing people rely on their tiny paychecks.

Emergency Medical Technician (Current Employee), paoli paNovember 16, 2014
Pros: meeting people, caring for people
Cons: not enough trucks, trucks breaking down often, no union
Clock in and start with partner, checking and washing truck, receive dispatch information. drive to and do report on the way to facility. Get transfer paperwork from staff at facility including demographics and medical info that needs to be charted. assess patient and obtain vital signs. transfer patient to stretcher and obtain necessary signatures if patient is able to sign. drive to receiving facility, unload patient, give report and paperwork, get receiving signatures.
Management some higher managers do not seem to have the better management skills, Supervisors/op supervisors good to work for and well seasoned. Leads- two are excellent to work under. new one from another base time will tell.
Love to work with permanent partner on sundays, he makes the day go by faster.
Hardest part of the job is dealing with some family members especially when the patient is going into hospice.
The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting and educating people and patients and the freedom of not being micromanaged all the time as with some other jobs.
what is not liked is that part time employees are not notified of changes in the company such as new base location (prior to moving within two weeks now), no holiday pay for part timers, no benefits, no mileage perks etc. ask then about it and are told that was discontinued a while ago. Having not enough trucks to do the job properly. Paperwork lost at times. Not having properly fitting uniforms, mine is too big but the next size down does not fit the chest.Not enough trucks and they send you home, dispatch constantly asking what your eta is – more... during rush hour traffic like we have jet fuel tanks. generally not listening to your complaints about issues with the trucks such as not starting, not having headlights, heat or air condition during hot and very cold days (this can be an issue with patient illnesses or lead to more problems and I took an oath to do no harm or no further harm. Management previously cancelled christmas parties due to greed (digging into their bonuses) and the christmas parties were good for morale. – less

UNFAIR AND ILLEGAL PRACTICES
EMT-B (Current Employee), Mount Vernon, NYOctober 9, 2014
Pros: nothing.
Cons: no union, over-worked/underpaid, no breaks, unfair compensation
Transcare is an AWFUL company to work for. I work out of the Mt. Vernon base. The dispatchers are the B word with control issues. The office/ turn-out staff constantly demonstrate favoritism among employees. EVERYONE SLEEPS AROUND WITH EACH OTHER! Even the married people. It's the company culture. Very inappropriate, RACIST comments against African Americans and women practiced by turn-out coordinators and the Mt. Vernon 911 employees who "hang out" at the base. Even the "N" word is tossed around!!! Extremely childish office staff. Very vindictive supervisors. HOSTILE work environment. Rules don't apply to everybody. Turn-out employees that are NOT EMTs ACTUALLY ARE ALLOWED TO RESPOND TO 911 CALLS WHEN COMPANY IS SHORT STAFFED!!!! You will feel very defeated working here. Take your tech card to FDNY. RUN FROM THIS PLACE!!!

Unprofessional, Discriminatory, Horrific place to work
Doesn't matter (Former Employee), Poughkeepsie, NYSeptember 27, 2014
Pros: close to train and bridge- easy commute
Cons: location, and everything imaginable
I had the unpleasant experience to work here for what felt like a lifetime! Your typical days revolves around selfish,childish coworkers and managers who stab a knife in your back the minute they are given a chance. They set you up for failure! If you have any experience in the Emergency medical response field, please take my advice and look elsewhere!! I can say to you this place is horrific, dirty, a hole in the wall and the management is non-existant and worthless. EMT's who are injured on the job are either shunned, permentantly disabled due to negligence and forced to file charges against the company or are put on a pedestal and felt sorry for. The ambulances are glorified vans that are always broken down as they take parts from one to fix another. A sorry excuse for mechanics. Their pay rate stinks, the benefits cost you an arm per week and a leg per doctor/dentist office visit. Their 401k is a joke. This place is a free for all and should be avoided at all costs. That is if you like to work, are honest and feel good about getting a paycheck that you deserved and earned.. Dont apply to this place!! Oh and did I mention, there may be some days you have to bypass the road as there are shootings, stabbings, drug deals and high school kids fighting on or near the street.

Supportive and professional workplace
clinical ride time (intern) (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PASeptember 17, 2014
Transcare was a transport company with 1 Paramdic to 1 EMT per truck. Majority of calls were for transporting needs to different medical facilities such as dialysis, chemotherapy etc. The gentlemen there had such a passion for supporting these patients who were very ill and in need of 24 hour care. These gentlemen were very well known in the facilities as well as known by the patients for they're respect and quality care.

Great Job Bad Security
EMT-Basic (Former Employee), Bronx, NYJuly 20, 2014
Pros: working in ems
Cons: managements rules are always changing it takes more then adaptability
Excellent company to be employed with. The problems are with management always coming up with a new rule without notice. which can be confusing making work difficult because something you was able to do yesterday you can't do today.

This job is a joke
EMT (Current Employee), Brooklyn,nyFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
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.
