    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

    I worked at ProTransport-1 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fair scheduling practices and ability to set your own schedule after you work 1000 hours.

    Occasional CCT transports and if you stick around a few years you can do ALS or Stanford NICU/PICU transports.

    Good experience, most employees go to Paramedic school, nursing school, or PA school within a few years.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great, but is standard for the industry. I started at $15/hr and left at around $17

    You'll end up working 14 or 15 hours days and doing long drives up and down the coast occasionally, and those suck.

    Advice to Management

    Not much - the parts that suck are inherent to the industry and from what I can tell Pro is better than Falcon/WestMed/Rural Metro with staffing and general HR issues

    Cons

    Conducts layoffs during EMS week

    You'll never go code 3 on a BLS rig
    Dispatchers can be unprofessional/ have strong favoritism

    The company has no interest in keeping employees
    The company is more interested in making a buck from a transport over patient safety

    Advice to Management

    You should have had a mandatory documentation course years ago and it should have been worked into our FTO.
