    I have been working at American Medical Response full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Quality pay (especially if you have experience), I was pleasantly surprised with the salary they offered me! Management team is impressive. The training for new hires is extensive and high quality, and on the job training is ongoing and extensive. Quality controls are in place. It's interesting...I worked for AMR roughly 20 years ago, and the place was sort of a mess. So I was surprised and happy to find that they've improved a lot in all areas. I enjoy my job, I like my boss, and would recommend this company to anyone seeking a job in EMS.

    Cons

    Staffing is a problem, both in dispatch and in the field. It's common to be short-staffed and struggle with the call volume.

    Advice to Management

    Add more staff in dispatch, add more staff and units in the field.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at American Medical Response (Atlanta, GA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Nice ppl. It was a good experience that didn't involve rubber gloves or coughing. They called me in and discussed work history. Pretty normal interview process. There really isn't a lot more to tell than this.

    No negotiations.
