I worked at Rural/Metro full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

This company has really excelled in building quality teams to provide ALS and BLS patient care needs in many American cities. Teamwork, community involvement, value driven patient care, partners in excellence with hospitals, fire, police and other networks of providers all have become Rural Metro strongpoints!

Cons

Often, large staffing needs can put many employees in positions of not getting their voices heard. These larger ambulance companies have big footprints in communities and provide employment opportunities to many, but the problems often seen in larger companies are not exempt in Rural Metro's families.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember the little guys out in the trenches and their needs are only what their patient's need.

    Pros

    True EMS professionals get into this job to serve the community. This company give you that opportunity.

    Cons

    Finance driven. More concerned with making numbers than providing exceptional service or an employer of choice environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the finance geeks out of the drivers seat and put some real EMS operators in charge.

    I worked at Rural/Metro full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    National company with national resources. New trucks and equipment and supportive leadership. Pay is well above average for most EMS companies, including those they are also national.

    Cons

    Being a large company, although leadership is supportive, employees, particularly those on the front line (EMTs and Paramedics on trucks) tend to get lost in the business of other responsibilities.
