Depending on what office you work at we have some awesome people who work hard. There have been some major changes to the branches but they are coming around and settling.
It honestly depends what branch you work for. Some branches are more organized and put together with amazing management, others are disorganized and mismanaged. It also depends on each individual’s learning style and what you can handle. In any branch you need good communication skills, stress management, and situational management skills.
It is horrible - no one cares, since ParaMed bought out Rivera & Rivera took over, managements game of the day is to see who they can pit against another. The atmosphere in this office is poisonous at best, you trust no one & no one trusts you - I have never worked in such a vile, evil place....moving on. Health & Safety - no one checks on Para Med & they have let it go away - don't dare complain. It used to be a great place to work, now it is a good place to go & get paid training & then move on to a real company. A very toxic, angry place to try & work.
The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing...clients are suffering being told they can't find anyone when girls are sitting in parking lots for 2-3 hours waiting for clients...very disorganized!
Chaotic, toxic office
Best part of the job are the clients you get to meet on a daily basis. Other PSW's are great and easy to get along with. Anyone above that level can be difficult to deal with.

Work environment very distressed. Office no idea if what they are doing. All day everyday putting out fires.
Paramed is great for anyone looking for a job that can be flexible and work around your schedule. You stick to the same clients on a regular basis give or take a few clients who get added when others call in sick. The work environment is based off other people's homes as it is an in-home service. As we are the providers, the environments are mainly clean and tidy.
