    I have been working at LifeCare Medical Transports full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    For the most part you can form a great friendship with most of the employees

    Cons

    Changes to schedule can wait till last minute. Some who aren't managment think they are or higher. managment (higher and lower) can be stressful to deal with. Not enough employees for call volume causing stress and frustration. Have to pay for uniforms with not many options for different weather

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Better pay would probably help as well.

    I worked at LifeCare Medical Transports full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Trial-by-fire nature of the job forces new providers to get acclimated to the field while also babying them a bit more than a fire department would. Typically lower acuity calls with the occasional septic outlier (in my BLS only experience). I made some incredible memories here, and formed some amazing relationships with my repeat patients that I wouldn't trade for the world. I was given the opportunity to get deployed...

    Cons

    Upper level management is relatively (extremely, infuriatingly) hands-off unless you're working IN Fredericksburg. Lower level management (direct supervisors) knows what's wrong with the company but can't or won't even try to fix it. Employees are disposable, and treated as such. If you ever need back pay for any reason, good luck. You will be run ragged. You will be thrown into situations that you don't feel prepared...

    Advice to Management

    Show your people that they are worth something to you and you'll have loyal, hardworking employees. People respond to positive reinforcement. It's a concept worth exploring.

    I have been working at LifeCare Medical Transports full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The relationships you form with facilities and patients. The experience you gain not only from working on an Ambulance as an EMT, Driver, or ALS provider but also 911 calls and assistance to the public.

    Cons

    I can not honestly say that I have found a con working for the company.

    I have been working at LifeCare Medical Transports full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, most shifts are 13 hr. which has you only working 3 days a week. Pay is good compared to other companies in this industry. Company keeps growing which is creating more officer positions. A lot of unique calls, which give employees a lot of experience they won't ever get with a 911 county.

    Cons

    Benefits package is expensive.

    Pros

    I really like going into different hospitals and working with medics. I'm really learning a lot more than I thought I would.

    Cons

    It can be long days, but that seems to be like all EMS work.

    I have been working at LifeCare Medical Transports full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have been able to do some very beneficial and very cool things with LifeCare that I would not have had the opportunity to do elsewhere. I've met Senators and traveled, I've met some very interesting people who are patient's, customers and employees. The amount of opportunity given to gain experience in many different facets, is wonderful. I have not had another job that offered the ability to wear so many different...
