    Pros

    PGS is a great place if you want to gain job experience. You have the ability to become proficient in probationary related drills, acquire your Class B license, and participate in other training. Pay is better than that you would receive working for a private ambulance company.

    Cons

    Being confined to the gates of an industrial facility, work can get pretty dull and boring. Don't expect to fight any fire while working for PGSFD. There is a low morale among employees. Management completely lacks professionalism. The company is ran as a security company, which it is. Favoritism is shown to employees. Write-ups, suspensions, and terminations are given to some while others who commit equal or worse offenses go untouched. Leadership lacks experience and education. Company does not look out for its employees. Horrible place to work, steer far clear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees fairly and with respect. Do not show favoritism or selective enforcement of rules. Read the above commentary and advise.
