     Great management.
    911 rescue experience
    I have had no problems with scheduling or continuing education. They have good health benefits and care about their employees

    Cons

    I have found no mentionable cons despite having to wear a tie; which can and does interfere with patient care.

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a business degree or management degree. Getting a medic license doesn't qualify you to make serious financial or management decisions

    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.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities, decent pay, good station managers. If you are looking to improve your resume, you will find this place is quite handy. Hard work is usually rewarded, but good-ole-boy club is strong as you go up.

    Cons

    The company has no strong direction, executives have poor understanding of workforce and market. Very poor planning on most fronts. Unprofessional and untrustworthy executive management. Lots of failure to launch ideas and programs that fail due to poor coordination and planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace executive management, more direct involvement by President.

    Pros

    They have a good reputation with anyone who doesn't actually know anything about them.

    Cons

    I left my old EMT job because I though Superior would have higher standards of professionalism and run more smoothly. What I thought would be a higher standard turned out to be frivolous rule after frivolous rule. They blindly cling to their traditions for dear life and pretty much fire anyone who steps out of line in any way. Now I understand why all the other companies look at Superior and laugh in the field.

    In addition to crappy pay, not so great hours, and cameras in your face during your shift, it just sucks going to work every day having to worry about getting fired for whatever ridiculous reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only people who care about the tie is you. This isn't 40 years ago. You are successful because you are the biggest and you are the biggest because you got here first. It has nothing to do with you being the best because you aren't. Take a second to stop enjoying the smell of your own farts and maybe you'd see that.

    Pros

    If you want to be a medic... this may be a good stepping stone to fire departments and city jobs. Some great people work there.

    Cons

    1.) Low wages and little room for growth.

    2.) They fire people for dumb reasons.

    3.) Obesity problem.

    4.) Rely on The State of Illinois for Medicaid payments etc... When the State doesn't pay, you end up getting your hours cut...so we are told.

    If you aren't using the company as a stepping stone, then please find another employer because this place is a black hole trap. Stepping stone but not a career, seriously. Heed my advice please.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How do you manage something that relies on State payments for potential?
