Everyone works a 3/4 split, 12 hr days.
If you’re in the events dept your schedule varies.
They have 8 hr peak hour OT units as well.

Don’t know about starting pay currently, but I don’t imagine it’s much more than when I started there.. Probably $16-17 range for a medic, CCT used to be like 5 or 10% or something like that.

Don’t forget there is no state tax, so if coming from Cali, between that and a little cheaper cost of living (slowly going up)... you can do alright.

I'd be interested to hear more about the casino stuff. I'm getting close to hanging up my stethoscope and have thought about Vegas for a retirement destination. I'd want a quiet, no excitement, get a little extra $$$ gig.

Casinos hire security guards who are also EMTs.
If you want a quiet gig- a casino security guard gig in Vegas is not it. I’m talking about constant ********.

Gonna bump this one. Does anyone have current information on the pay scale of Community ambulance? Advanced EMT, almost three years experience, heading for medic soon as I can. I'm flying to Vegas on Friday for an interview with Community (trying to move there, but USAA won't go through with the loan until I have a job offer, so spending money now to save money later) and I'm wondering what I'm getting into. Also hoping that Nicole at AMR can fit me in same day, as I'm flying out that evening.

It’s got to be around $12-14/hr
So how was the interview and what did they offer? Did you accept? @Wayward2w1

Interview went very well, was offered $15 an hour. Had a phone interview with AMR the following Monday, waiting to hear back on their offer but most likely going with Community. Just seemed like a nicer place. For the curious, the schedule there is 4-3-3-4, on-off-on-off. 12 hours days, everything over 8 hours is overtime. Their 911 area is pretty small, about 30% of what the other companies cover, but they also assist Henderson fire when they get busy. Primarily IFT between the 16 hospitals in the area. They are working on expanding their 911 coverage, but from what I heard AMR kept bribing people to keep them out.

Let me know if there's any other questions, if I can answer them I will.
