    I have been working at Acadian Ambulance Service full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company is employee-owned which most people actually enjoy because it means that they're putting Direct Value into their work. I like it because it is much better than most other places I've worked not counting municipalities. Our current medical director is dr. Kidd and she is very Progressive about one to have her medic be use the medications and treatments and protocols they have it and without much Direct online medical control.

    Cons

    Course any single private non municipality company is going to have profit on their mind to survive since they don't have taxpayer dollars floating their budgets so yes you do have a major push to get the calls done to get ready for the next call.

    Advice to Management

    Mid-level management needs actually get down there and listen to what people are saying not just had a nice little catch phrases and and smiles for all of the regular workers like us.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Acadian Ambulance Service in June 2016.

    Interview

    Quite nice people. Very friendly and answered all my questions. Had a little difficulty when it came to 2nd interview with manager(first was with hr rep). They had their act together more than what I had heard about them.

    Interview Questions

    • The basics(where do you see yourself, why do you want to work for us, etc). Nothing too hard at all.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I would have taken the offer but I could not justify the pay cut for the years of experience. I have worked 911 and had basics make more than what I was offered.
