My position was through a contractor. The business was great Senior Management was great. Sadly my direct manager was in the wrong position and has since left. I would absolutely love to work with Ambulance Victoria again. They are a very dedicated organisation for both full time employees and volunteers

To survive long term in this career you must be dedicated & not just wanting the money. The shifts are long 10. 12 or 14hrs days & night shifts & clear lateral thinking is a necessity to successfully treat patients & stay safe

My dream career became a nightmare 4 months in. Inconsistency with assessment criteria from clInical instructors. A culture of bullying and gaslighting from senior management. I wouldn’t recommend this organisation to my worst enemy.

I learned that project management governance is vital for the success of project managers but it is not just about templates it's about the people side roles and responsibilities, stakeholder management and managers must acknowledge and support the expertise of their employees.

The company has zero care for their employees or for their health or mental health. Management are bullies and at one stage I had to get the union involved as HR and management had no interest in what I was going thru.

The rosters are supposed to rotating but they never were. There was no culture and most people dislike the culture.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
not enough pay for extra hours worked

My short experience with Ambulance Victoria was positive. Casual, on call day to day basis in rural Victoria. As an ACO in a rural region, the jobs can prove challenging but very rewarding.
Pros
Casual
Cons
unpredictable hours

This is a typical government organisation to work for. It offers secure ongoing positions with limited remuneration. Depending on the department (expertise) you offer, there are advancement opportunities and diverse projects to work on.

The only downside to Ambulance Victoria is its job security. It seemed they were always going through a restructure and a department was always hiring being made redundant.

No one had the opportunity to settle in their role and some colleagues felt like their department was the next to be made redundant.
Pros
Excellent culture
Cons
job security

Great flexibility but very little opportunity for advancement/opportunities for PT work. Management are bad communicators but co-workers in general are very friendly and great to work with. My job has become very monotonous and boring with little variety/stimulation. I don't like not being busy. I can't find anything to say about the most enjoyable part of my job which is sad, but the main reason why I am looking for a change.
Pros
Flexibility/family friendly employer
Cons
Lack of opportunity for PT/Administration positions
