    I have been working at Huron Valley Ambulance part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I love the relationships that I have been able to build with my co workers. We have so much fun together and we are always able to joke around and laugh. I consider us to be a team and we get along very well. We have our problems just like anyone else but at the end of the day we are a family. This is the best company I have ever worked for. The management can be a bit much at times but overall I love working here.

    Cons

    My particular position can be a bit tedious at times because of the callers. I also don't like that there's not really any room for growth because I would love to be here for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't really have too many complaints.

    I worked at Huron Valley Ambulance part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Part timers get paid on a 17 to 20 hour work week scale but if you clock more than 30 per week. Rest of what you earned is paid out on the following pay period.

    Cons

    Bio metric reader has an 8 minute delay so you must clock in 15 to 30 minutes early to show an on time because management will place on performance improvement program and resolve the delayed clock in issues that you would have from clocking in or punching out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    co-workers, equipment, continue education, unlimited amounts of overtime, health care, job security excellent training program, profit sharing

    Cons

    micro managed by very high ups, unlimited overtime, sitting point(being moved from assigned area to another for coverage) low moral, not enough employees to have all of the shifts covered, vacations and pto, can only be 2 people off per day through out the entire company, and does not go by seniority, non union

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get the moral up, stop micro managing so the company can be where it used to be with a great reputation like it had 6-10 years ago. listen to the road employees and take there advice or at least listen
