    I have been working at Royal Ambulance full-time

    Pros

    Great people and environment
    2018 starting pay is now $15/hour
    Call bonuses and missed lunch bonuses
    Raises every 6 months
    Cool management (open door policy)
    Lots of events (BBQ, company parties etc...)
    Variety of call types

    Cons

    Cons are part of job but mostly small things like getting ran across different ends of the county or the likelyhood of not getting off of shift on time. Sometimes dispatch decisions also don’t make sense but the EMTs don’t really know the reasoning behind those decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Your investment into your employees really shows the extent to which you care about them... it’s very much appreciated.
