Licensed Paramedic (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – July 9, 2018
A typical day at American Medical Response is filled with unpredictable medical emergencies or inter facility transfers. I have expanded my advanced life support experiences. The management team at AMR is very fair and consistent. The work place culture is ever evolving. Personnel are introduced at a younger and more ambitious rate. New employees are using AMR as a stepping stone or a catapult into the emergency services or medical field. The hardest portion of my career at AMR is the unpredictability of the work day. The most gratifying part of AMR is making a positive difference and saving a life.
Gratifying profession, Opportunity to mentor young healthcare providers.

the day is spent transporting patients but the company does not care about their employees and will run us nonstop for 10-16 hours not allowing for is to rest or eat, if you have a personal issue or get injured they will help but only if it is good for the co if not they will just push you aside and leave you in a bad position, they do not care about their employees
Dispatcher/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Pompano Beach, FL – July 8, 2018
12 hour shifts with every other weekend off. The fast pace and stress gives me a greater respect for the medical field. I love my fellow co-workers but management could be a little better. I started as a CSR and now 11 years later I am one of the room supervisors. I started this job when I was 21 never to imagine to be here 11 years later.

the company has proven to hire the best and continue to train so that their employees are held to a mush hirer standard to prove they are the elite in the field of emergency response and healthcare workers

Every day is different and every emergency is different. At the beginning of shift we clock in, we check out our ambulance and we prepare for the day. It's very rewarding being able to help someone in need.
Emergency Medical Technician (Current Employee) – Redlands, CA – June 25, 2018
I like taking care of the patients and the interaction between some of my supervisors and myself. However, there is a lack of communication between the upper executives and the EMT/Paramedic. When uniforms come in you have to check the list that is put up, when cold weather gear and summer gear comes in unless you are on the company facebook page then you do not know they are in.
Ambulance Stocker (Current Employee) – Victorville, CA – June 16, 2018
Everything about working here is opposite of team effort. Most people still have the High School culture working here, or in this industry. Most of the employees prefer to play games with Human resources and fabricate stuff about harassment, and it goes on like a marry-go-round. It is not limited to one department, or a group of workers. If you are someone who likes doing all the work yourself, without any backup; then this is a perfect place to work.
paid lunch, but its a working lunch
minimum 12 hour shifts, and strict attendance policy....really strict

Daily vehicle check - assign on with dispatch to post to specific post or dispatched automatically to an emergency or non emergency call, all day, everyday - great learning experience - keeps up skills and learn from a lot of people that have been in the Emergency Medical Services Field for years with lots of knowledge and training. Be yourself - do your job, ask questions if you need help, assistance, follow rules and policies, reach out. Professional, respectful, helpful If you love what you do, you already enjoy the job, whats hard for one person may not be hard for another, depends if you are just starting or if you have some experience in the field, every job, place you go is learning just as life is, you learn everyday - whats hard about life for some, may not be for others, we are all different, if we all come together just as in the field in Emergency Medical Services, someone assists and helps someone - we could all get through it a bit easier and it wouldn't be hard.
