    I have been working at Huron Valley Ambulance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    decent wage, good holiday pay

    Cons

    dispatchers get anxiety disorders and PTSD, top management is dishonest, also loses contracts due to incompetence, keeps us short-staffed AND taking non-emergency calls about stuff like potholes

    Advice to Management

    do your own dirty work. have the decency to tell people if their position is dissolved because you lost another contract---and don't make us lie about it for you

    I worked at Huron Valley Ambulance (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, fair management, good benefits, full time and part time positions avaliable. Large market to work in. Shift bids happen often.

    Cons

    Hours can be brutal. You take a pay cut for working 24 hours shifts because you "can sleep at night" Let me tell you that's a rouse. You will not sleep much, if any on 24 hour cars.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that the 24 hour cars take a beating. The fact that the 24 hours cars make less money and work more hours is truly a travesty. Q


  7. "Great pay $15-$25/hour, HSA of $1500/year, BCBS vision/dental ppo, strict, busy, and unpredictable leadership."

    I have been working at Huron Valley Ambulance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits. Some good people.

    Cons

    Junior Paramedic shifts are terrible. 3 week cycle. 3 24hr shifts for 2 weeks and 1 week with 2 24s or 4 12s.

    Advice to Management

    more staffing is needed. Always critical coverage.

    I have been working at Huron Valley Ambulance part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love the relationships that I have been able to build with my co workers. We have so much fun together and we are always able to joke around and laugh. I consider us to be a team and we get along very well. We have our problems just like anyone else but at the end of the day we are a family. This is the best company I have ever worked for. The management can be a bit much at times but overall I love working here.

    Cons

    My particular position can be a bit tedious at times because of the callers. I also don't like that there's not really any room for growth because I would love to be here for years.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have too many complaints.

    I worked at Huron Valley Ambulance part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Part timers get paid on a 17 to 20 hour work week scale but if you clock more than 30 per week. Rest of what you earned is paid out on the following pay period.

    Cons

    Bio metric reader has an 8 minute delay so you must clock in 15 to 30 minutes early to show an on time because management will place on performance improvement program and resolve the delayed clock in issues that you would have from clocking in or punching out.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    co-workers, equipment, and involvement with medical control

    Cons

    high up management, politics, uniforms, outdated company policies

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees, they are the backbone to the company. Stop wasting tons of money at zingermanns on the board of directors, totally not worth it.
