    Great Company that seems to want to be the best at what they do, and is always trying to improve on how they do things.

    Pros

    Great friends, most of the employees really care about what they do. Company is always trying to improve. Management has really improved over the years and they finally have full time managers at the stations. My managers seems to care about the employees.

    Cons

    Some times loses focus on the employees. They do however, always find their way back to focusing on us, sometimes it takes awhile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working on improving your management skills and please keep weeding out the employees that don't care about what they do or how they act.

    I worked at Superior Ambulance part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was ok. CE was top notch.

    Cons

    Do not know too much. If you know more than your teacher or co-workers you will be an outcast. Lies will be told and back stabbing will begin. It is a high school atmosphere from management down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not promote just anyone. Have have a committee decide who move up. Not just one person. Also stop the constant degrading of knowledgeable employees or you'll end up with just sheep.

    I worked at Superior Ambulance

    Pros

    Pay is decent compared to other privates.

    Cons

    Company lacks leadership from station managers up to the CEO.
    Favoritism is everywhere. Promotions are basically based on how well you get along with the managers.
    If you're a pretty girl you definitely have the potential go up the ladder.......
    Upper management is a joke.
    All the above goes for their sister company metro. Less respect for them since that companies main concern is stealing the jobs of good firefighters.
    All in all this place is a mess. If you are reading this and are thinking of working there, have a plan to work at a FD later or make some extra money while you're in school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes. Be honest with employees about the companies current financial situation. Fire your selves and hire actual managers with experience not the guy or girl you slept with at the last Christmas party.

    Pros

    NONE! Maybe a hot guy medic on an ambulance.

    Cons

    NO SICK DAYS! NO HEALTHCARE SPENDING ACCOUNT! AND VACATION TOPS OUT AT 3 WEEKS!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GET A CLUE! POOR HR DEPARTMENT DOES NOT HAVE THEIR PRODUCT TOGETHER ENOUGH TO GIVE YOU THE FULL PACKAGE BUT IT IS LACKING AND THAT IS WHY. They do not offer sick days to their employees. So if you need the money you will take the chance of coming in and infecting everyone else. They have no healthcare spending account and this is a company dealing with healthcare. How can they not offer these basic things. Please take these reviews seriously and save yourself time, and aggravation.

    Pros

    Good money if you had the experience.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management. Upper management had no clue how to talk to employees. They are all a bunch of hot heads who don't take the time to get a full story before making rash decisions. Dispatch has no clue what they are doing criss-crossing rigs for scheduled pick ups. The company as a whole is a cluster of mismanaged garbage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to listen to your employees. If they are constantly telling you something is wrong, you may want to listen.

    Pros

    I honestly can not think of a single positive reason to continue working here. Other than your direct supervisor might be a little more easy going than most.

    Cons

    Salaries are a joke at best, was minimum wage for well over a year before I left. Information definitely is not shared between offices, and the cars themselves were poorly managed. It was obivious they didn't care and would stick you in anything that would start. Get ready for long hours and under apperciation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistency and transparency would be nice when working for a company. They were selling off parts of the property before I left, I'm not even sure how much of it is left.
