    I have been working at American Ambulance

    Pros

    Good starting point for new EMTs and Medics, Company has a excellent Critical care protocols and training for the Critical care Paramedics (CICP). Scheduling for Part-time is easy, Easy to get days off and pick-up whatever shifts you want. Management will usuallylisten to what you have to say. New quality control committee which seems to work pretty good.

    Cons

    Full-time employees have trouble getting days off. No PTO for first year. Some favortism from management and scheduleing. CCT program needs to be refreshed. CCT program needs 3rd person on units so there is no problems when an assist is needed. Managment will tell you no one has more than 36 hours permanent right to your face, but there are a few people that do.(favortism)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything needs to be equal with scheduling for max permanent shifts. Some have 36hrs, the favorites have 48 hrs if they want it.

    I worked at American Ambulance full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You'll explore all of Broward and Dade, probably in one shift because dispatch is so unorganized and will cross all the units multiple times.

    Cons

    They force you to stay hours after your off time and threaten to fire you if you refuse, supervisors aren't helpful and have no power over any situation, dispatchers are the real supervisors, hours are constantly missing from paychecks, human resources gets angry if you call for help, everything is favoritism, they don't offer any type of benefits. How can you work in the medical field and not be offered any type of health insurance?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring friends and family with no management experience into leadership roles.

    I worked at American Ambulance full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent experience in the EMS field.

    Cons

    You never get out on time, you don't get a lunch break, supervisors are just people who collect the reports at the end of the night. The dispatchers are the real boss. They control everything. You never have a voice and management will never listen to concerns. They don't offer you any benefits. Real nice that you work in the HEALTH FIELD but you aren't offered any benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your employees like humans,
