    I have been working at SeniorCare EMS part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Plenty of Shifts to choose from, double pay offered for unfilled shifts. Opportunity for events. Great place to learn & gain experience out of EMS school, great management, week training prior to start, beautiful Bronx base.

    Cons

    No raise opportunities, crappy brooklyn base, broken or malfunctioning equipment, complacent workers,

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating brooklyn base as the red headed step child. Offer raises. Teach your FTOs how to train

    I worked at SeniorCare EMS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent way to bring a paycheck in and an OK place to start your career. Don't stay any longer then you have to. Very easy job but very tedious.

    Cons

    Low pay and high turnover. Most of the supervisors are EMTs and most have no managerial training or expierence. I knew an EMT that had worked there for 6 years and was making $ 1.50 more from when he started. So needless to say, raises are negligible and dont even come close to keeping up with inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Vatch is a good guy but is out of touch. Reconsider your pay scale and rasises. Training program leaves alot to be desired. Consider the occasional thank you, it might go along way towards improving morale.
