thanks for all the info!!! I applied and interviewed at imperial but didn’t pass my medical due a very very minor curvature in lower back . I currently work full time in Southern California but got offered to interview at lifestar for a part time position. But stated the schedule will be negotiableI would not recommend Lifestar Ambulance. There are 3 private ambulance providers in Tulare County - Lifestar Ambulance, American Ambulance of Visalia, and Imperial Ambulance. I would recommend AAV or Imperial over Lifestar by far. Lifestar historically has chronically understaffed their area. The crews are worked hard and coverage for their area is often done by the other companies during times of high call volume.
Lifestar covers the city of Tulare and has a station in the Pixley area. Lifestar covers most of the 99 Highway through Tulare County. The last I checked Lifestar had 2 stations in Tulare City (East and West). I believe staffing is 3-4 units in Tulare during daytime hours and 2-3 at night with 1 unit in Pixley. The Pixley unit is slower but is first up for long distance transfers. Schedule wise I believe they work some combination of 24 hour shifts for full-time.
Fresno American is also a good option in that area (not the same company as AAV). Fresno American covers both Fresno County and Kings County. Good equipment, good benefits, and decent money.
Feel free to PM me or ask me further questions.
Is there any compnies I’m keen that hire part time???Lifestar is known as Deathstar in Kern Co. If I’m being completely honest, I have no idea why, but I can’t imagine it’s for flattering reasons.
It’s all farmlands north of Gorman.
Tulare Co. honestly seems kinda wonky. Like @HighlyUnlikely said, you’re better off trying American-Fresno...or, Kern County...
For medic. And is it still 911 after being acquired by RRH? I put my app in for per diem but still says being reviewed by hiring manager under my application statusMedic or emt?
Not sure were hiring for medics anymore and we just hired 2 part time EMT's.
The background process is rather long through RRH so be prepared for that though.... best of luck. Its become an excellent company to work for.
That sounds awesome. What sort of pay and schedules are we talking? When I looked in 2018 it was 15.xx/hour for medics and some weird 72/96 thing.Id say RRH is handling it terrific. 8 brand new ambulances, All brand new stations with All private rooms, huge pay increases and STILL opportunities for overtime (with partial built in OT weekly)
they've literally taken EVERYTHING about the company that was ****ty, old, broken and outdated it and replaced it with Top of the line equipment no matter what the cost. management structure has been completely reshaped to a very professional group who No longer micro-manages you and supports you in what you need.
So yeah, id have to say its going well.
