Go to a public ambulance service. Unless overwork, underpay, and zero appreciation are your thing.

Raises happen when minimum wage goes up, or when the employees are finally so stretched thin by the company's constant expansion that they physically can't staff all the trucks. In that case they pay new hires more than those working currently in order to get new warm bodies in the seats.

It's like working for your family, but the part of your family you like, not just the ones your forced to be nice to around the holidays. They treat you with respect and don't micromanage - come in and do your job to the best of your ability, act with professionalism and integrity, and you'll be quite happy.

As others have stated the job is stressful, yes, but this is EMS and that's what we deal with. If you are surprised that EMS employees work long hours and deal with stressful situations than you probably don't belong in this field. If you are so stressed that you feel you are "risking your life" than you are the one doing something wrong and, again, shouldn't be working in this field. This job is for a strong and unique personality who have a firm understanding of mobile healthcare, life safety, and personal responsibility. If you want to complain on Indeed about how you are underpaid, overworked and deal with stress on a daily basis might I recommend applying at McDonalds or somewhere else where you can celebrate your own mediocrity and fully embrace your "victim" status. EMS is no place for snowflakes.
