EMT (Current Employee) – Sioux City, IA – August 1, 2018
Overall, I really enjoy working with midwest medical. The company cares about their employees and tries to work with them when they can. The hours are 24 hours which can get tiring, but this is normal in an EMS setting. My only complaint would be the upper management in Omaha/Columbus make a lot of decisions that don't exactly representate the entire company and satellite stations.
great for advancement, decent hours, flexible schedule
EMT-B (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – July 16, 2018
This company is owned by an investment group that is primarily concerned with profiting that group. The on call policies at mostof the stations is unethical at best. Workers essentially spend 24 hours at the station and are paid for 12. A 12 hour on call shift is mandatory and workers receive a 15 dollar flat payment for an on call shift. If you like to spend 72 hours a week somewhere and get paid for 40 check out Midwest Medical.
Provider (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – June 7, 2018
Things at Midwest Medical had been different in the past and it wasn't good. But, things are moving in the right direction now with a better culture, better managers, better pay and better benefits. I realize change takes time but all the changes have been positive lately.
I am excited to see how the company continues to improve!
Fast paced growing company that is practicing SMART Growth!
Manager (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – June 7, 2018
Over the past several months many things have changed within the company for the better - PTO, Communication, Employee Feedback is being heard and they are working to train all managers to give them the tools needed to be successful. You can feel the culture shift. The people who work here are Phenomenal and I am happy when I come to work!
Growing, Job Security, Upward mobility and new PTO policy is great!
Medical Transport Van Driver (Former Employee) – Bellevue, NE – May 17, 2018
Not a bad place to work for, but sometimes the nature of the job can be aggravating. Little room for advancement, however, and the pay is at minimum "going rates" for the area. Not bad, but could be much better.
Medical Billing Specialist (Former Employee) – Columbus, NE – May 11, 2018
I thoroughly enjoyed the work that I did at MWMTC; however, after the privately owned business was sold to a corporation, the communication was lacking. It became a stressful working situation, where you did not know, day to day, if your job was secure.
Parametic (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – March 31, 2018
Low pay, stressful environment, inconsistent work schedule, broken equipment . Manual cots not working. Poorly stocked ambulances constantly break down. No breaks on 16 hour shifts. Unreasonably placed demands. No time to complete state required reports in the time frame that the state requires them to be done due to Employees constantly running back to back calls . Expected weight lift required of 150 lbs is grossly underestimated. Job often requires 2 person manual cot lift of patients weight exceeding 300 lbs. Good learning experiences with a well variety of calls but constantly turn over of employees due to stressful environment due to overworked employees and low pay.

The same old company that doesn't value it's employees
Emergency Medical Technician (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – February 8, 2018
in my 2 years there I had 6 managers, interim manager and even more counting assistant managers. The company wants money and valued expansion in other areas over it's existing employees while I love being an EMT this job almost took away all of the things I enjoyed. It can be fixed it just need new steady management in the Omaha Area
Revolving Door, Expanding to Fast, A few Great Employees
Ambulance crew (Former Employee) – Midwest Medical Transport – January 24, 2018
If you are looking for long term this is not the place for you. The work life balance does not exist with this company. They ask for 96 hours and only pay you for 40 hours. They only give you 4 hours of rest in a 24 hour period and you can work several days in a row being sleep deprived. Upper management does not recognize when employees give extra to the company. Upper management is quick to throw lower employees under the bus to make themselves look better. Did have a few great coworkers who are amazing people.
Teamwork at the Station Level
Upper management, Station Employees are treated like dirt
Paramedic (Part-Time) (Former Employee) – Bellevue, NE – August 26, 2017
Respond calls for inter-facility transfers of ill or injured patrons requiring ambulance transport. Provide ALS assessments, establish and carry out treatment plans based from protocols and alter care to adapt to patients needs. Transport the patients to an appropriate facility for their ailment.
Paramedic (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – August 7, 2017
Working here fulltime and have no real problems! Went to station based marketing in the areas and time is consumed in reaching out to the public. The only problem is cooperate. Cooperate has no clue how important extensive learning is and the excell in the need with newer equipment. I love the team I work with and the demand for paramedics is at its highest! I have no complaints really.
Medic (Current Employee) – Columbus, NE – April 28, 2017
Wages are fair but the benefits are high. No work life balance. If you cross the wrong person you risk your job, if you make friends with the right person you will advance. Management tries, but don't know what their doing. Culture:work to the bone and be thankful for it. This is just a stepping stone to most employees.
You learn quickly and meet great people.
Company is focused on making money and not on its employees who help make the money.
Driver (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – December 31, 2016
The team life and culture with co-workers is outstanding. The employees here are welcoming and great to be around.
However management presents a different picture. There is no career opportunities here because there is no long term advancement opportunities. They tend to hire and fire all management staff every 4-6 months.
Paramedic/General Manager (Former Employee) – North Platte, NE – April 24, 2015
Midwest Medical gave me the opportunity to help develop a new location from scratch. As the first paramedic, I worked many, many long hours. The company always provided top notch equipment and allowed us the opportunity to explore new techniques in patient care.
Ability to work with people and train new paramedics
Dispatcher/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Columbus, NE – December 2, 2014
Midwest Medical is a very stressful but exciting and rewarding place to work where you are allowed to express yourself freely in a homey type atmosphere. The work is very rewarding and everyone works well together. Management is very personable and understanding.
