    I worked at Explorer -1 Ambulance & Medical Services

    Pros

    911calls, His wife is really nice and communicable,

    Cons

    If you work here know the California labor laws cuz he does not follow most of them. There is No training EMTs teach each other. Owner is the manager, the HR, the payroll person, the supervisor. He is very spiteful, and manipulative. Refuses to invest in a time clock. He doesn't want u to leave without Being cleared to go, however he will not tell u to leave but then tell u that u been off te clock. Constantly... makes excuses when he snaps at employees. He is 100% a liar when it comes to dealing with customers. I have seen it first hand. If you are a new employee and need experiance DO NOT work here. I have worked as an EMT for years and this was by fare the worst company I have ever worked for. He claims his high turn over rate is because the EMTs were lazy. ... NOT TRUE! Pay checks are always wrong one way or another. Doesn't pay daily ot only after 40hrs, but when u get your ot he will screw it up, and complain that u r upset about a "few funky dollars " then when u get it he pays u strait pay as apprised to the time and a half pay. And yes. Of this can and will be followed by a 1-3hr lecture of how u should be grateful... fyi u may or may not be getting paid for that time he is keeping u. GOOD LUCK

    Advice to Management

    Be receptive TAKE OWNER OUT OF THE PICTURE.... ALLOW YOUR WIFE TO BE HR, SHE IS LIKABLE AND appears neutral. Set a chain of commanded; supervisors, managers, HR, VP, then president/Owner. No one goes to you for their solutions. Train everyone before they set out on their job. GET A REAL TIME CLOCK AND A PRE MADE EMPLOYEE SCHEDULE. (List for partners, rig #) Someone should already be their with access to... equipment for restock. Take responsibility for your actions add stop blaming everyone else. No more excuses You can not take out for lunch when u don't clear your employees for it. You can not add up downtime to equal a 1hr lunch. .. ITS ILLEGAL!!!

    I have been working at Explorer -1 Ambulance & Medical Services

    Pros

    Great pay with a good work environment. Station is nice with full kitchen and sleeping quarters. Internet access to study with cable T.V. new ambulances with all the equipment. I remember at one of my last companies I had to leave the ambulance running or it wont start not here. What more can I say it is good.

    Cons

    I really do not have any cons. I wish there was a station closer to my house.
