    Corrupt, some department heads embezzling money, it's all who you know.

    Pros

    Free health care and full-time. If you are corrupt or good at being fake then you will be a manager in no time.

    Cons

    Where to start, some departments are corrupt (like the one I worked for), some departments heads embezzling money, it's all who you know not the skills you have. You can't report anyone above you, even HR won't do anything to them. They will promote friends over people with knowledge of the job. It's easier to sneak money and what you do past them I guess.

    County operated service. So county benefits. Way better than private EMS. Nice new trucks with good equipment. Call volume isn’t excessive. Tons of OT opportunity’s

    Cons

    Short staffed. Interfacility transfers that are mostly non sense because the local EDs are basically urgent cares.

    Pros

    Great individuals to work with and care about other coworkers. Provide great services to the community and help all individuals in need. People really do come first and all groups work together to help the client.

    Cons

    It is a government job so salary isn't at the highest for some individuals. Policies and procedures can get in the way of accomplishing some needed tasks at different times.
