    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Rural/Metro South full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Have ability to see all sides of EMS- 911 to interfacility. Large operation with two different operations Orlando/Sumter. 12 or 24 hour shifts

    Cons

    Call turnaround expectations unrealistic- busy Units are not well taken of due to other crews.

    Advice to Management

    Invest your time more wisely

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Rural/Metro South full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    No lack of overtime available.

    Cons

    Beyond low staffing Constant mandatory 16+hr shifts due to low staffing High insurance rates Low moral due to poor management Lack of proper training Not allowing employees to receive certifications required to do their job due to lack of staffing. Lower pay rates

    Advice to Management

    Properly train and certify employees PRIOR to releasing them. Staff units and communication center properly. It is not a safe work environment for any employee to be mandated to work 16+ hrs on a regular basis. Become more interactive with employees and give appreciation for the dedication they show day in and day out to save lives.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Rural/Metro South full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The checks won' bounce. That's about it. I don't have any good reasons to work there.

    Cons

    You are treated poorly. You are treated poorly by management. You have no time off. The trucks are always breaking down.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage people. Learn to dispatch. AMR will clear house soon enough.
