I worked at Superior Ambulance full-time (More than 5 years)
Good stepping stone job. Plenty of available overtime. For private EMS in Illinois, it's hard to find better pay/benefits. While the turnaround is very high at this company, I will say that in the 7 years I was there, the terminations were always justified and the individuals I ran into saying they were "singled out" and whatnot were never very self aware people.
There's a constant stream of warm bodies rotating from newly hired to newly fired. Such large turnaround leads to putting a lot of less than desirable providers in ambulances.
Also, avoid a station manager position. It has the career life exptectancy of 6 months. Seriously, I had 18 managers in 7 years.
Advice to Management
I had 18 managers in 7 years. This company will never improve it's culture if it can't even keep it's managers.
I applied online. I interviewed at Superior Ambulance.
I walked in and they literally hired me on the spot because I had my paramedic cert. I sat down and the guy said you are hired. Didn't ask any questions or ask me to tell him about myself. I soon learned why, they needed people badly.
