This company like most EMT companies in California are stepping stones for a future career in healthcare. If you're going to school for higher medicine and currently a student, this is the company for you. Great hours, amazing flexibility, however; the pay is bad. If you want high-speed emergency care go to Care or AMR. If you want to learn more about medication and how to have better pre-hospital care go Lynch.
Pros
Meal ticket after 5 hrs with no food, Mostly chill days, learn medication
Cons
Pay, have to call dispatch to give a code 1 (no trust), mostly vans for trasport

Worst job I’ve had. They allow bullying in the dispatch department specifically. Reported to Hr and nothing came of it. Left very unhappy. This place is awful

In an industry saturated with sub-par EMS companies with shady management and shadier business practices, it is refreshing to work at a company that operates ethically and treats its employees well. Lynch is right in that sweet spot where it is large and established enough that the company is stable and the equipment is good, but not so large and corporate that you are treated like a number.

To start with the positive:

-Scheduling is incredible. I have always been able to get time off as long as I did my part to notify management in advance and make some attempt to find somebody to fill in for me.

-Call volume is very reasonable, and unlike other companies, you will usually not get run hard all day or get your hours cut very early. We run fewer calls per day than other companies based on talking to EMTs from other companies, and over the past year or so the quality of calls has improved significantly (far less dialysis).

-Equipment is good on the BLS side and great on the ALS side. Ambulances are kept clean and well maintained by dedicated mechanic staff so you don't have to wash your own rigs or drive around embarrassed in a dented-up ambulance like some other companies.

-The supervisors and management are generally very accessible and will make a genuine attempt to address any concerns that arise so long as you are reasonable about it. As with any company, management is more likely to go the extra mile for you if you are an employee who goes above and beyond and isn't know for always doing the bare minimum.

-As an EMT, you can work on an ALS unit with a Paramedic

Orange County has a reputation like LA county in regards to what their medics are allowed to do, but the IFT program is top notch for any medic that wants to practice their skills and become competent, and Lynch was the company to really spearhead the entire program. I worked here part time after losing my full time job and they really took care of me and I enjoyed working here.

I have been an EMT for 4 years and have prior experience working for another private ambulance company. Working at Lynch is a total night and day difference from my previous EMT company. Management seems to be a problem among other private ambulance companies but at Lynch I feel that our supervisors genuinely care about us.

Lynch ambulance is a professional organization where you can gain introductory experience into the vast field of healthcare. The company offers shifts where you can work one on one with a paramedic, run critical care transport calls, and run pediatric calls on the CHOC unit. I would recommend working at Lynch ambulance to anyone that wants to build healthcare experience.
Pros
Awesome introductory position into healthcare, Great partners, Management is genuine and cares about you, flexible schedule, decent calls, Work with paramedics, Registered Nurses and Respiratory Therapists
Cons
Low pay, long shifts, sometimes calls are very routine

If you are a new EMT, this is a good place to understand the basics of the job and how hospitals work before going into the 911 field. Scheduling is their best feature, you can practically make your own schedule, it's great for current students.
Pros
scheduling, experience, different opportunities
Cons
when dispatch plays favorites, pay

Routine here, hospice calls, hospital discharges, and ER calls. Lynch provides no benefits. Lynch is moving to a hospice company now, very depressing.
Pros
Some partners are cool

A lot of earnest staff that believe in professional work ethic, sometimes at the mercy of less ethical management. Crews were at the mercy of dispatchers' and managers' whims.

Best aspect of working here was the flexible scheduling, which allowed for time at school, with some working full time part time, or per diem. The pay wasn't great, but that's the industry mostly. Management was good, and you barely see them. You show up, grab your ambulance, and run calls. Little drama. Not great benefits.
Pros
Flexible hours, FT/PT/PD employee hours
Cons
Benefits arent great, pay wont wow you and no bonuses.

There are manyyyyyyy ambulance companies, I would pass this company if you can. The owner is very cut throat who does not care about anyone besides his company and money. Wages are low, benefits are so so. I would not recommend this company, unless you had no other option. They also have a CHOC orange division, with is very political, a lot of favorites. This company mainly does dialysis, doctors visits, and return transports to retirement homes, or rehabs.
Pros
no pros
Cons
too many to list

If you've just graduated from EMT school and need that first job for experience, this is the best place to be. They will give you the best on the job training. Once you get that training, move on. There is almost no upward mobility here, and management isn't about helping people.
Pros
Great for beginner EMT's
Cons
Everything else

Employees are expendable should be the mission statement for this company Respect, Compassion, Integrity, and Excellence is just propaganda, not values that they follow. A place to work for a limited time to be field trained and to gain the necessary experience to move on and further a career, but not a good long term work environment.
Pros
Providing a service to the public and community is rewarding
Cons
Healthcare benefits are really bad, Hours are inconsistent, no room for promotion or advancement.
