    I worked at LifeCare Ambulance (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Continuing education provided by company. Seem to value employees in all ways except compensation

    Cons

    Management is half hazard. A lot of blatant favoritism is shown and nothing is ever done about it. The pay is abysmal. They say that unlimited overtime is available to make up for that, but its hardly a trade off.


  2. "Stay away"

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at LifeCare Ambulance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling. The 401k is a big pro too. That is about it when it comes to pros. So many cons though.

    Cons

    Management is the worse. The office managers have no idea how employees and students really think of the company. Understaffed, over worked and treated like everyone is replaceable. L

    I have been working at LifeCare Ambulance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of experience and unlimited hours of overtime. Work with a wide variety of people who truly have a the heart and soul of serving others.

    Cons

    Low paying wages. Too much favoritism, doing what your suppose to do, doesn't get you moved up. Non stop running.


  4. "Over-worked and underpaid"

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

    Pros

    Easy to get overtime
    Good work-life balance; flexible hours if you can plan ahead of time
    Great co-workers
    Work on your own most of the time
    Some days are easy
    Get your foot in the door to become an EMT/Paramedic

    Cons

    Pay!! You can make at least $1-$2 per hour more doing the same exact job for a different company
    You'll feel under appreciated compared to the EMTS/Medics
    You'll rarely clock out on time
    A lot of the things you deal with in this job are simply not worth the pay
    High employee turnover - they are often understaffed

    Advice to Management

    Treat Wheelchair division better and maybe you won't be so understaffed all the time - we really do work hard!
