    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at ProTransport-1 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Station 61 is the bomb - supervisors Mikey and Tim make the place feel like home. They are always helpful and patient, and always asking about how to make things better for us. The coworkers are great. Patients are interesting- especially the Stanford cases. Dispatch and scheduling are also very helpful and accommodating.

    Cons

    Station 62 is cold, damp, and lonely, but Mikey and Tim are making moves to make it better. Pay is typically low - its is IFT. Overnight shifts don’t typically have OT.

    Advice to Management

    Better systems for overseeing quality of facilities at 62, and better scheduling organization.

      I have been working at ProTransport-1 part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Easy to get a job and it seems like the company is always hiring.

      Cons

      The on boarding process takes a long time. Took 1.5 months to finally get my complete uniform. Scheduling department for training needs help. My 3 days of training have been changed 4 times already and I still don’t know when my next shift is.

      Advice to Management

      Get it together. It’s extremely unprofessional.

      Approves of CEO

      I worked at ProTransport-1 full-time

      Pros

      Structured annual review schedule. Close to where I lived. Quick interview and hiring time. Decent pay.

      Cons

      Upper and middle management not communicative and disconnected from employees. Most employees unhappy and unfriendly. Mediocre benefits package, limited choices. Sometimes unrealistic expectations and goals set. Rules apply to some and not others, unequal enforcement. Billing dept has been outsourced to offshore in one country and customer/patient service to another country. BTW, Elena Whorton is no longer with the company...

      Advice to Management

      When employees come to you with concerns and ideas, listen and try to solve things. An occasional compliment for hard work or "thank you" goes a long way. Communicate more and it would be nice if upper management and CEO/CFO know people's names.

        Pros

        Pay is pretty good. Gain entry level experience in the medical field.

        Cons

        Company is very top heavy. No formal training or advancement. Head quarters is in Cotati, if working in Sacramento there are different rules and protocol.

        Advice to Management

        Establish protocol for both locations. Better trainings and meeting for all staff
