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

    Pros

    ESOP, Job stability, Decent Pay

    Cons

    Pay could be more competitive with other companies in the area. Micromanage, Micromanage, Micromanage.... Senior management at a total disconnect from operations of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should spend more time immersed in operations, leading from the trenches rather than from the comfort of their offices. Some have not seen the back of a unit in 35+ years, some possibly have never seen the back of a unit.

    Emt-I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    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.
