    Pros

    Mom & Pop Company, despite its size. You aren't a number here. They will work with you through any family emergencies or changes (having a baby, etc) Call-off limits are discretionary to an extent. Don't abuse the system, and you won't get a write-up. Nice pay with short climbing scale to max pay. Good schedules.

    Cons

    Benefits could be a bit better. Often for some services you have to meet a $500 copay before they will cover parts of your cost, but it isn't too bad considering the type of money you make there.
