I have been working at Acadian Ambulance Service full-time (More than 8 years)
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.
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.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Acadian Ambulance Service in June 2016.
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.
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.
