    Great place for part time/prn work as a paramedic

    I have been working at Donald Martens & Sons part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I am a prn employee and can work whenever! Never been treated bad been with them since fall of 2010. I have a lot of consecutive days off at my full time job, and never once got refused work maybe not the shift i desired, but ohh well. Pay is good for what your asked to do definitely not a stressful environment!! They have these out of town trips that are usually simple good luck finding those at another private and are usally daily. No management has ever given me a issue. I just come in get my runs sent to my phone and excute them easy does it.

    Cons

    Bariatric runs can sometimes be a challenge do to cot size and door frame size not good! Have heard full time employees complain about benefit cost numerous times, but i don't know the entire story. No shift differential if you work a full time truck that has a shift differential doesn't seem quite fair to me your doing the same job as they would be doing for 2 dollars less per hour that's $24 in 12 hours!

    Pros

    You can have unlimited overtime.
    The hours are very flexible.

    Cons

    Unless you are a firefighter the salary is not good-you can't pay bills or have a family without getting a second job or working a ton of overtime.
    You are often not respected by management-was once openly humiliated by a member of management in the middle of a busy establishment.
    no room to advance.

    I have been working at Donald Martens & Sons full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Many friendly coworkers. Overtime available

    Cons

    Old equipment that is poorly cared for even intentionally damaged by employees, Mininum communication on shift changes/location changes etc. Patient pick up times are often given to you from dispatch an hour after the appointment time, and while you are on another call/patient. Resulting in hospital staff yelling at you because you are two hours late when you finally arrive to the patient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more efficient planning and organizing in dispatch to result in prompt patient pick up times. Treat employees fairly.

    I have been working at Donald Martens & Sons

    Pros

    Really hard to get fired from the company, they really don't care about what is done. Flexible scheduling, They will let you go to school, but won't pay.

    Cons

    Bad trucks to use, Very limited on supplies, Never told a good job, Call volume is ridiculous. Forget it if you think your getting lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please please Please start caring a little bit more about your employees and your patents that we take care of. Try not to be like every other private ambulance company and rise to the top of employee care and patent care.

    Abusive to employees /worst place to work

    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Donald Martens & Sons full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Co - workers who are honest although beaten up so badly there are few left

    Cons

    Degrading senior management / uncalled for in any work place I have ever worked at . Anywhere would be better. Inconsistent at the continued risk of patients / poor equipment / total lack of communication. They should be out of the healthcare industry for the patient's sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about anything other than your own money and lifestyle ----- like the patients and employees and work environment
