    Pros

    The only pro I can come up with is that I met a lot of nice people that worked there.

    Cons

    The management was clueless, the supervisors were insensitive and mean. I had never been treated so bad in my life. I would compare this job with working in a sweat shop.
    I felt like I was working in a third world country. It's so ironic because in December I was laid off and replaced by workers in India and the Philippines. Good luck with that!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and maybe you'll get some in return.

  2. Low pay no increase better companies out there. They have been sold numerous times management is horrible. Stay away

    Pros

    Great Co workers everyone works together you get benefits which is rare now a days

    Cons

    Poor starting pay if you have 20 years experience your still going to start at $12 an hour

    Advice to Management

    Start paying better. They recognize military medics but give them poor salaries. HR was a nightmare and very rude

    Pros

    Great pay
    Once you've been there awhile, the people you work with become like family.
    Training is very thorough for those who haven't ever dispatched before
    Great crews
    Fun job, if you're good at it

    Cons

    Tough shifts (most are 12 hours)
    Management is iffy
    Lots of mean girls that take a long time to warm up to you - high school
    You get written up for everything
    Union doesn't do squat to protect the employees
    You start off part time, scrambling for shifts
