Very disorganized very high turnover
Emergency Medical Responder (Current Employee), Windsor, ONMarch 27, 2016
Pros: Na
Cons: Dont pay, lots of money put in none out. HUGE TURNOVER
If your only looking for EFR certificate(that you wait 3 months for or pay $100 for after its been grant paid for) ok but if your looking for employment forget it. This company uses people to obtain grant funding and could care less if you actually need employment to provide for your family. It's very high school clicky and will feed you whatever excuses imaginable. No other place you can be employed for 3 months but never actual clock in 1 hour, something is wrong there. Lots of money you put in obtaining CPR certificate, police clearance, Immunization etc...but you WILL NOT get any money out of company no matter how willing you are to work for your income. This company has a HUGE turnover and I see why. Which is sad because I'm sure lots of good people are lost that way. PAID TRAINING - NO!!..GOOD LUCK try to get your money out of this company THEY DON'T PAY.

Not a reliable income
Patient Transfer Attendant (Former Employee), LondonFebruary 28, 2016
The Good: Great amount of time spent on training, and they really prepare you for the job. Overall, really rewarding job and it allows you to get some good hands on experience working with people. The staff are very knowledgeable as most of them are graduated paramedic students, or have been but through a first responders course. The front line people are a great group of people.

The Bad: Hours get promised, but it is impossible to earn a decent living. You are expected to be on call for shifts without any guarantee of hours. Shifts can be between 0-12 hours. Very hard on your back and body as you are lifting people on a stretcher, and possibly with a partner who cannot lift well. You will get sent home whenever possible to save on labour costs. It is very unorganized due to high turnover rate and very poor management. Employees are not really valued in this division.
