Great place to work
Paramedic (Current Employee) –  Crown Point, INMarch 20, 2019
Its a private ambulance company. With that being said, the pay is great and there is room to expand. Crown Point station is nice and the ambulances have power cots and lifts.
Pros
Pay. Small station backed by a big company. Room to grow.

Emergency Medical Technician (Former Employee) –  Mason City, IAMarch 16, 2019
Midwest was a great place to expand my skill base. There wasn’t a lot of opportunity for training from the company. They also had flexible hours mainly due to a small station

Great Place to Work
Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Omaha, NEJanuary 4, 2019
MMT is a great place to work that gives you the opportunity to be a part of one of the fastest growing EMS services in the US. In being a part of the MMT team, you are provided ample opportunities for growth and career development. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone interested in being a part of something special.

Great company getting better every day!
Human Resources (Current Employee) –  OmahaJanuary 4, 2019
I've heard a lot of stories about Midwest from the days when people didn't think it was a good company to work for. Those days have changed and there are lots of great changes that have happened and will continue to be happening. Better management, higher, more competitive pay, more structure, good benefits and PTO. Give us a chance, I am glad I did!
Pros
Work Schedule, Benefits, Pto, working in EMS service
Cons
Can be really fast paced

EMS is 24/7 365, a lot of hours but rewarding patient care experiences.
Paramedic (Current Employee) –  NebraskaJanuary 4, 2019
For the most part if you perform your job duties it will be recognized and you will have opportunities for advancement. Unfortunately because they do tend to give their employees opportunities for advancement by promoting within the company, there has been turnover due to lack of qualifications and experience at the management level. Tends to be some narcissistic individuals with self inflated personalities here at the station and corporate level but like any job it just takes a few bad apples to bring down the group moral. If you can get over that, overall this is a great company that provides a selfless and necessary service and has tons of carrying individuals.
Pros
Great patient care experiences. Great teamwork.
Cons
Long transports. Understaffed.

Dont even consider working here
Paramedic (Former Employee) –  United StatesJanuary 3, 2019
Horrible place to work filled with false promises, ZERO opportunity for education. They require 7-24 hr shifts in a 2 week period but only pay you for 40hr a week. Yes that’s correct. Horribly managed. Management “manages” by constant threats of replacement. Junk equipment which is rarely maintained. Profit driven company at the expense of its employees. They do not care about employees other than a select few in Nebraska and Iowa. Stay away from this place.
Pros
Free uniform shirt
Cons
Horrible schedule 168hrs per pay period but only pay you for 80.

toxic and dangerous
Medic (Former Employee) –  NebraskaNovember 25, 2018
Don't buy their sales pitch, the management has learned to believe their own lies. The obvious boys club positive reviews on here are pathetic, just another ploy to deflect attention away from the unbelievably high turnover rates and toxic culture. Integrity is in short supply among management.
Pros
pay was decent, some good co-workers
Cons
punitive mentality, lies, sketchy bases and rigs, spotty clinical standards

Not what you think
EMT (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NENovember 2, 2018
Typical shift would be 5-8 patient transports (mostly non-emergency from Hospital to/from nursing home and back- plus about 30 minutes per-call for paperwork. Think Happy-cab with room for a stretcher in the back. This is not anything like 911 service or what you learned in EMT/Medic school. Medicine is not the focus. Patients are usually stable and just being transported because they just need a stretcher as opposed to wheelchair. Lots of psych transports. Squads don't carry a full compliment of ALS medications / technology. No radios for dispatching / encoding to hospitals - they still rely on landlines and paper printers. Scheduling / dispatching / patient care systems are about 15 years behind current technology. Crews are 2 EMT's or 1 EMT / 1 Paramedic. Cots are almost entirely manual (so realize you are going to be dead-lifting 300lbs on a regular basis and you partner may not be in good shape) - long-term lasting back injuries are almost a given. Squads and stations are typically in poor repair - stations are bare-bones, dirty, and rodent infested.
This is the "second-string" of EMS services, you're not going to be using your EMS skills or saving lives. Pay is probably 1/3 of what you could make at a 911 service, so you can imagine what kind of people work there.

Management is poor - they are in over their heads. Only a select few run the company, the rest of management is a revolving door.
Pros
Easy
Cons
This isn't professional EMS work, just a taxi

Poor
Paramedic (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NEOctober 23, 2018
Pay is fair at best, hours are there for the taking, but what's crazy is how many people works here fighting for shifts yet there's all kinds of times when they can't fill a full schedule and people get screwed over. Oh well, welcome to EMS in the midwest

Beware
PARAMEDIC (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEOctober 7, 2018
Don't want to get too deep into it for fear of reprisal (yea its that bad and they are that petty). Only benefit was they pay the best in the area as far as I could tell. Management is self serving at best and completely absent at worst. Barely any mentoring. Very corporate EMS culture. More concerned with money than patient care.

Management on high horse
Driver (Current Employee) –  LincolnSeptember 28, 2018
Even with the new owners the management is horrible. No room for advancement and you will be terminated if you are ever a threat to your supervisor. Decisions are made that are not best for the employees. Money hungry corporate company.
Pros
Heath insurance
Cons
Scum managers

The company is great, the station I was at was horrible.
Dricer (Former Employee) –  IndianaSeptember 10, 2018
Midwest as a company is a great company, absolutely love what they stand for...that being said, the station I was working out is a newly opened station. The management hired employees, who had been fired from other companies for many different reasons, mostly for being problematic. I was personally verbally accosted by one coworker and it was handled by the management by telling them to stay away from me. The management also hired family who is always in his ear and that was the end of my hours, because he wanted them. If you want to work at a base where nepotism and gossip rule, then it’s the place for you.
Pros
Pay was great
Cons
Nepotism, childish behavior and pettiness

Good company to work for
EMT (Current Employee) –  Sioux City, IAAugust 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.
Pros
great for advancement, decent hours, flexible schedule
Cons
Upper mangement is too involved.

Transitional work
EMT-B (Current Employee) –  Omaha, NEJuly 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.

Moving in the right direction
Provider (Current Employee) –  Omaha, NEJune 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!

Good for when you're looking to meet ends
Medical Transport Van Driver (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, NEMay 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.
