    After submitting a job application, personally how long do you wait before not hearing any response that you take the intended job out of consideration and move on? (Not counting those random out of the blue jobs where recruiters hit you up 2-3 months later after you’ve applied.) I’ve been on the hiring end so I know how the processes work, so I give it a week max now as an applicant. I wanted to ask what everyone else’s personal timeline was?

      Pros

      Great co-workers, most managers are attentive, Medical Director is very progressive

      Cons

      Typical EMT pay, Bexar county usually receives newest equipment last, Acadian is seen as "the evil corporation eating other services" so hospitals and other services are usually rude

      Pros

      They worked with me for years through all my home issues and helped me grow as a person. Unlimited overtime.

      Cons

      The pay is awful and the raises aren't even worth it (1-3%). You get hurt alot and they are reluctant to give you enough resources for bari patients due to shortages.

      It’s a big company and you can advance

      Their priorities are clearly screwed. It will never matter how much you do, you are beholden to the whims and gripes of dispatch.
