    Positive Outlook

    I worked at LifeLine Ambulance (CA) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lifeline was a great place to start in gaining more experience while I was in nursing school. I worked on a Critical Care unit alongside an RN who I really learned a lot from. I would recommend Lifeline for someone who is wants to get their foot in the door and gain more experience within the healthcare field.

    Cons

    Guidelines were not consistent and things weren't as organized as they could have been.

    I have been working at LifeLine Ambulance (CA) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only good thing is that most emts at the company know what really goes in here. So just listen and keep your eat to the ground. If they are telling you stories that unreal, trust me they are not.

    Cons

    Company puts fellow workers endanger and put patients in danger by not providing equipment that is functioning. They will nake you lie to hospital staff about situations . Makes emts work off the clock without proper compensation. Management is horrible are unprofessional and are not truthful. PLEASE AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS. I have seen some really good emts loose their licenses because this company fails to follow guidelines provide by lemsa and the county. You would think it would be them that takes the fall but remember what they tell you in class it's your license on the line not theirs. You perform it your responsible. And if you dont they will find some way to punish you. The really good emts leave this company very fast they never stay long. Top Management is also very abusive and threatening . Fair warning, at the end it's your choice to work for them but remember what's on the line. Have seen top management pull equipment from calls that was desperately needed. And company will allow emts to pick up patients with no coverage at all because they have contract with certain hospitals and they will at times not bill for lift assist or even give you when needed. Protect yourself first dont throw out your back for calls that are being mismanaged.

    I worked at LifeLine Ambulance (CA) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay a fairly competitive rate and offer a lot of incentives for lateral movement. There is a good amount of growth potential in this company.

    Cons

    The station areas are fairly sketchy, but Santa Ana has enough space to enable employee parking (a huge perk). Lots of satellite stations with easy parking.
