    The schedule is a little confusing because of when our pay week starts, but the cliff notes version is you get a 3 day weekend every other weekend. So for our two week pay period starting on a Friday it’s 3 on, 2 off, 2 on, 3 off, 2 on, 2 off.

    Vacancies are hit and miss, for the first 2 years there was no movement, and in our most recent staffing there were 3 shifts open.

    Starting pay is $56k with zero overtime shifts. When you include mandatory CEs and early and late punches for crew change, it’s gets closer to $60k.

    Pretty much exactly what I'm at here. In just too lazy to go through yet another onboarding and NEOP/credentialing process for more of the same lol. Plus school and write-my-own schedule...

    I totally get that. I wouldn’t leave here unless you offered me a whole lot more cash with the same medical director and scope of care.

    But we do get 250% matching on out TCDRS retirement plan...

    Their website says they serve 500,000 people and run 30,000 calls per year.

    Coming from a system with 800,000 people and 110,000 annual calls, this sounds like a vacation!

    Yes. That's one call for every 8 people.
    *sigh*

    We have contracts to take students from ACC, Temple College and EMTS. I’m not sure if we take interns from other schools, that would be something the school would need to contact the department about.

    If it wasn't for the 24/48....I really like that area of Texas. Spent the afternoon and evening in Gruene/New Braunfels and I miss the nice part of Texas. Driving back to Houston was like going to Louisiana for no good reason.

    I'm not about that 24/48 though. Ain't about that life. Not my favorite.

    Any schedule without a four day break is meh. We're on modified kelly (OXOXOXXXX) which is I think ok for 24s. I bet I could live with the 24/48 to work for such a great place though.

    We are currently taking applications until January 4th at 1700hrs central time for a hiring process in mid January.

    We do hire medics straight out of paramedic school (we only require you have your state license by the end of the academy), so lack of experience as a paramedic isn’t a disqualification.
