My understanding is they only hire internally for those positions.


Hi everyone, would anyone that works at Hall be able to give me information on the Dispatcher position they have open? Just wanted to know about pay scale, advancement, schedule, overtime opportunities. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Well, were not hiring dispatchers currently, but I'm late in replying... But we do hire externally for Dispatcher, although we always try to hire internally first.

Schedule is, 12 hours, 2 on 2 off, alternating weekends off. Pay is somewhere between EMT and paramedic pay. $11-12/hr? Same benefits as EMTs and medics (free health care, 401k, etc). Don't believe there's much overtime because there are RARELY openings for Dispatcher, we have a VERY low Dispatcher turnover rate. Less than 1 per year. Before last year, we didn't lose any dispatchers for several years. We have 4-5 dispatchers on at at time, one being a lead. We dispatch all ambulances in Kern County, which is more than 100,000 calls per year. We're an accredited dispatch center of excellence, or something like that.

Clearly I don't work in dispatch lol

There have also been numerous movements outside Kern County. Hall has won many bids in the past.

We once won the Santa Clarita EOA of LA County, but when LACo said our medics couldn't retain scene medical control, re turned it down.

That wasn't just the county but the IAFF as well. Medical calls are the bread and butter for LAFD and LA CO FD

Wow, being a few months into my medic program, hall really seems like a superior place to work. EMS in SoCal is sad, moving more north is for the best.

I plan to do my internship at morongo basin ambulance(I think it's called), medics make like 10 an hour!

Does hall hire for medics very regularly? Seems like most applying are for EMT.

Hall is offering a $2500 sign on bonus for medics if they are referred by an employee.

In addition to that AMR riverside and maybe San Bernardino are offering to fully pay for medic school for EMT employees.

Starting is around $15/hr with daily overtime and no union dues however I've talked to some new hires who said they were able to negotiate higher due to the shortage (haven't been able to get an exact amount from them). I think just our division is short 13 medics currently and we are loosing 2 more.
