Featured Ambulance Service job reviews

  • Best thing

    The job is a good job. And a secure job

    Worst thing

    Pay is continuing to be erroded. Will soon be a minimum wage job. Compared to being in excess of twice minimum wage 10 years ago.
    Management treat us like children and treat all staff equally badly with equal levels of contempt.

    • £12.35 per hour
    • 34–44 years old

  • Best thing

    The variety. The reward of doing your job well

    Worst thing

    Pressure of the workload. Long delays at hospital. Inappropriate calls that increase both of the above. A sense, sometimes, that nobody really appreciates what you are doing/achieving.
