If the ceo Paul Lakich is the same guy I worked with many years ago, I know he runs a top notch company!

The owner of this company is very unprofessional! He curses at his employees everyday and yells at them for no reason. He runs his ambulance company through intimidation. Employees quit every week practically and he has no patience and belittles his EMTs and everyone else who works for him! They use unethical practices in the business. His wife who is a nurse used Code 3 (lights and sirens) so she wouldn't be late to another patient's pick up appt. and that's illegal! They stock expired meds and don't use filters on their morphine bottles so you can get glass shards in your shot. He doesn't maintain his ambulances regularly so their not running in tip top shape.

Everything in this quote is true, Worst employer ive ever had. Personally says "90% of training for EMS is on the job" but then expects you to know everything fresh out of EMT school and when you dont you get either belittled or yelled at. Personally complained about the Code 3 (lights and sirens)and being told to drive illegally, He didnt care. There are so many things wrong with this company I dont have enough time or characters.

This company is ok. It would be alot better if paul the owner let mike the "vice president" run things and him and his went away

Unprofessional, not honest, late, very late, wrong pick up times; so many frequent problems that I stopped using them. They will farm out jobs they don't want or think they won't make enough money on but they will not tell you that another company will provide the transportation. Instead they will lie and tell you that they are providing the transportation. You find out the truth at your pick up time. Too many headaches.

I could not agree more with the comments posted here already. I was a nurse with little experience who received no training or support. Lead by example is NOT anything Paul believes. He is a true tyrant who's business is literally kept afloat by using his RN wife to run calls at any hour day or night. Not tht her attitude is much better then his. They are incapable of retaining staff (EMTs Medics and Nurses and Operation Directors aliike) in a down economy and that tells it all. Needless to mention how often payroll checks would bounce, and so I moved on after a few months of abuse. I am only sorry I could not find new jobs for all the hard working EMTs. The EMS authority should put this company out of business!!!!

I knew nothing about this perspective employer. I got "hired". So far, I have not worked a day for them. I have tried to call and text to see what was going on. I still don't know if I actually work for them or not.

I was there for about 6 months and quit. Paul and his wife are a couple of money hungry pieces of sh*t that don't give a damn about their employees. the provide zero training for new employees. the wife is a bitch and paul is a fat coward that likes to yell on the phone but wont say sh*t to your face. he'll leave and call you while he's driving or when he gets home. I'm amazed this place is still in business. horrible place to work. dont go here if you are fresh out of EMT school it will ruin the job for you like it did me, once i quit I never got back into the profession because I was traumatized and thought it would be like that everywhere. never went back to it. too much stress for too little pay. they run you ragged and get no 401k no benefits no insurance and get paid once a month. F this place and the owners. I'll bitch slap their disgusting hoarding asses next time I see them.
