I have been working at Piedmont Medical Center full-time (More than a year)
Willing to work with your needs and requests as far as stations/hours go. Very supportive as I attended school to promote from EMT to AEMT to paramedic. Supervisors are kind and down-to-earth. My whole shift is like a big family.
Really can't think of any legitimate complaints. Sometimes have a difficult time getting email responses from certain supervisors. Most of the chain of command has poor grammar and mechanics in emails sent to the whole company.
Advice to Management
Part time staff may need to be held more accountable for picking up shifts, entering availability. Wish that we could still take vacation days as "leave without pay" instead of PTO being mandatory - but understand this is a hospital/corporate policy, not just EMS.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Piedmont Medical Center in September 2016.
They were very busy, they usually do a peer interview but the department manager interviewed me and showed me around and then I was interviewed by the clinical educator. They were both very nice. It seems the department is in transition but is going better places. PRNs are paid a flat rate here which helps me out as a new grad but isn't so good for someone with a lot of experience. They also don't do shift diff for PRN. Overall good interview experience. The manager was kinda multi tasking alot but it didn't bother me. I understand things get busy. He was nice enough to show me around the hospital so I could get a feel of the place.
