    I worked at American Medical Response full-time

    Pros

    As an EMT working for a service that primarily handled inter-facility transfers, I was able to gain valuable experience with direct patient contact and report writing; something I was not able to do working for a 911 service.

    Cons

    Very old ambulances with various mechanical. AMR going Corporate right before I was hired made requesting leave an extra hassle as the paperwork had to be done through the parent company above AMR.
