Unlike the reviewer below who wrote in 2010 (over 5 years ago), I work for Westmed and have for 6 months. Pay is $12 and goes up w/ seniority. W/ overtime I average $14 per hour. This is slightly above the industry average. I have never had an equipment malfunction. All of our ambulances are new. I really enjoy working here and it is so much better than the other companies (including ambulance companies) I have worked for. Working for Rural/Metro was a complete nightmare, and many of my friends who go to work for other ambulance companies in the bay area, find them extremely dissatisfying. What I appreciate most about westmed is that management is understanding as to the stresses and challenges of being an EMT. If you make a mistake, they work with you. If something in your workplace is a problem, they address it. I am proud to be a Westmed employee and have management I can trust.
