    I worked at Community EMS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    *Over time if you wanted it
    *Coworkers were great
    *Management at Centerville office was the best I have ever worked around did everything to help you out if you needed it on or off work great crew.
    *Great company to work for decent benefits

    Cons

    *Pay-not really a problem with the company it is overall in the industry EMTs are really underpayed this company is on par with others in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing it really felt like more of a family than a bunch of people you work with.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Community EMS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was a good company up to about 4 yrs. ago, pay ok and good benefits, but mid mgmt focuses on #'s not people.

    Cons

    Doubled workload, inexperienced dispatch for 911 calls, volume of runs vs. quality of pt care

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I liked having the ability to choose my schedule as well as picking up extra shifts to make overtime

    Cons

    I did not like the environment my co-workers created. Had they focused on being productive instead of trying to avoid calls and complain, things would have run much more smoothly.

    Advice to Management

    Work on finding employees who enjoy their jobs and respect others including patients.

    I have been working at Community EMS full-time

    Pros

    Insurance, family environment, teamwork, overtime = Bonus Bucks! Helping patients and their family members

    Cons

    The national shortage of medics and basics makes for short staffing and hold overs ( but bonus bucks + over time= $$).

    Advice to Management

    Thank you goes along way. Communication is key. Hire more Human Resource people.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Community EMS full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good as a first EMS job to get some experience and feet wet doing 911 rescue, transport and some critical care transport

    Cons

    No programs to retain seasoned paramedics. All you will do is work on an ambulance and run calls. No critical care program, no room to advance into management or education rolls.

    Advice to Management

    Expand operations into allowing employees to reach there full potential in order to retain. New up to daye equipment goes a long way not monitors from the 1990's and constant truck failure while responding to calls
