I came to this company 2 months ago from another ambulance company and was a great move. I Can work a mix of days and overnights but left my other company because they wouldn’t work with my schedule and most of us were afraid to talk to the new management for fear of harassment and termination. I was supposed to get paid more per call and that went well for a while but the number of calls available have dropped and it wasn’t consistent anymore. At least at APA, I know what I’m going to make each week. Training is good here, they work with my schedule, overtime is available if you want it. I am getting an extra shift per week. We don’t get held over much and run 3 or 4 calls in a day. The calls we run are good, not much dialysis or transfers. Seems like all calls are going to ER or psych. Most always get our lunches but they don’t deduct for them anyway. We all just got raises too, including myself even though I’m new. I hear they do awards each month. I have referred some of my co-workers from the other company and getting $250 for each person I bring. All of my partners have been great, dispatch is legit, supervisors are cool and management is always there and easy to talk to. Glad I found this place and got hired. Now I’ll be going to medic school now that I have a job with regular hours and consistent income.
