  1. 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.

    I have been working at Superior Ambulance full-time (more than 10 years)

    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

    Pros

    The pay was fair. Plenty of overtime if you meet production standards.

    Cons

    Upper management treats staff terrible! Non realistic expectations. Their Director came from a company that went bankrupt, clearly they do not care about their image.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at what really happens there. Why do you think there has been so much turnaround?

    I have been working at Superior Ambulance full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good place to gain experience. Best entry level pay in chicago-land area with almost unlimited over time. Very autonomous work schedule and quality equipment to work with.

    Cons

    Employer care very little about you and has no loyalty to long term employees. I know of several employees fired after 20+ years and managers positions replaced and forced to work entry level if whey wished to continue their employment. Raises are non existent and management will not negotiate. Continuing education is non existent and the only upward mobility is to move into management where the workload will involve phone calls and forced work at any time of the day or night. The critical care team is staffed with relatively inexperienced personnel with egos that do not support experience and education level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring former EMT's and PM and recruit people with actual business and management experience.

    Former Employee - Critical Care Paramedic in Elmhurst, IL

    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.
