Rural/Metro & PMT are the worst employers that Ive ever worked for, each time. Poor managers.
EMT-Paramedic (Former Employee) – AZ Payson, Mesa & PHX. Metro, Sdale, Tempe, Pinal – September 27, 2015
I started with RMFD in 2000 as a Reserve FF/EMT in Maricopa County, and left in 2001 bc of low pay and poor management.
I worked for Comtrans & American Lifestar 2002 - 2004, PMT Part time 2004-2005, & then FT @ SWA 2005-2007 as a Medic. I left both bc of low pay and poor management.
I worked for RM PMT & American Lifestar 2014-2015, and just quit again bc of Very Poor Management and extremely low pay for saving peeps lives every day.
My advice is that you go work anywhere but here unless youre wanting experience or enjoy low pay, unsafe apparatus, and work drama, no support, low morale, extremely poor & unsupportive/unresponsive Management.
Dont trust HR, or the "Company Union"
24 hour shifts. some good people. sometimes get paid to rest/ sleep.
Too many to list, It all starts at the Top & goes downhill from there, managers suck beyond compare, Stations & Ambulances without AC all summer, polyester shirts, broken or missing equipment
