    I worked at Royal Ambulance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Healthy call volume about 20 per week full time and about 40% code 2s and 60% code 1s, upward advancement to FTO, and opportunity to work with nurses for CCT, comfortable environment, good communication with management, supervisors are great especially in Santa Clara County, a superiorly organized company with the highest starting pay for EMTs.

    Cons

    I have no cons for working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting the EMTs! The Santa Clara County Supervisors are great!

    Pros

    Great Supervisors who I could get advice from anytime. Great partners who I had a blast working with. The amazing opportunity to get to help my community.

    There's really nothing bad. I didn't enjoy being held over sometimes but I know that just happens in this profession and appreciated how dispatch would more times then not, get me off on time.

    Keep doing what you're doing! It's working and wish Royal and all of you the best of luck going forward.
