Pros

Part-Time is flexible.. Driving wheel chair truck is relaxing. Employee benefits are pretty good. It beats working at a grocery store. In our struggling economy, its good to be with a big successful company like AMR.

Cons

The pay is really bad.

Advice to Management

Management is actually okay right now.

    Woefully understaffed had us working the same fires over and over again.

    Pros

    I valued my time providing patient care in a progressive ALS system. I was proud to work under my medical program director and for my county. I have marked that I recommend this company for the experience that a medic can gain from the patient care aspect. Great county protocols and crews.

    Cons

    The "for profit" mentality was often in conflict with providing good patient care, as the company often made decisions to cut equipment, personnel in order to maximize profits. Work environment and hazards are hard enough without the company you work for making it harder for you to advocate for good patient care. Field manager was quoted saying "Its cheaper to pay out on OJI than it is to pay for safer equipment."

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees and they will invest in you. I have greatly appreciated my time providing patient care there, and hope that in the future changes could be made in order to support and retain employees better.
