Nepotism and politics play a role in some undeserving people either keeping their job or getting jobs they don't deserve.

    I have been working at Armstrong Ambulance Service full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You'll get hands on experience as a new EMT/Medic. The workers doing the labor, (Medics and EMT's) are mostly good people. The occasional knuckle head, (most of the time) gets lost in the crowd.

    Cons

    If you aren't a part of the "clique", i.e. friends or family with the shift scheduler, H.R., dispatchers and/or management, then you are an expendable pee-on in their eyes. If you complain about the lack of proper supervisory structure/nepotism within the company, then you will be blacklisted. You will not be judged on the content of your character, or your patient care and related documentation skills. They value young, (cheap) and inexperienced EMT's and Medics, over more seasoned veterans. Management/current ownership would rather pay cheap hourly rates for its workers over safer, more skilled minds and bodies. It's shocking how the dispatchers get away with "picking" on certain people by giving them more undesirable calls, even when they aren't the closest available ambulance. Logic is not the driving force behind this company's operations, and hasn't been for quite some time. If you aren't friends/family with a "higher up" worker, you may want to go somewhere else to earn your stripes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company, or overhaul everything from the top, down. God bless Mr. Armstrong, who recently passed away. His health had been failing for years, and the company has not been the same since. He was a man of character, vision and heart. He had many years of hard work that built this once great ambulance service. His surviving family that now runs the business aren't following in his footsteps. It may be time to realize this...

    I have been working at Armstrong Ambulance Service full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    flexible hours; OT was generally available; get the chance to be independent

    Cons

    disconnect between management and staff; always getting out late; you get the feeling that the company was always looking to earn an extra buck at the expense of the employees.
