I loved working with all different people from all districts. The only thing that I was unhappy about and made me quit in the end was the how bad the communication was. I was only told a couple of days or even a couple times the night before duties that I was registered for them... When you had to apply 2 weeks in advance (while I was there) I think a greater notice should have been given especially on weekend duties.

The worst employer I have ever had..... and I have had some shockers!!!!
A politician with all the right words as a CEO, corruption and nepotism throughout the levels of management and a seriously terrible support system for their front-line members.
Pros
good wage, great operational staff
Cons
the rest, inclusive of no meal break, lack of support and terrible bully managers

St John Ambulance is a great place to learn how to save lives through first aid. Many people don't know how important it is.
you will get the opportunity to go out and help in deployment situations such as the bushfire.

It is great to volunteer here but of course there is a lot of loopholes to go through to get there which can be a little hard. However it is super rewarding.

To work at St. John Ambulance is to feel like part of a community. Each and every person there is genial as well as professional. The clients expect impeccable service, and to work at St. John is to learn exactly what that means, and how to deliver it. A fantastic place to better oneself.

I have attended a few events where I provide basic first aid to patrons. I am accompanied by a Senior Event Officer who guides me and who I respect as a role model to watch and learn from.

Great place to work, great support and colleagues.
I have enjoyed to work for this company. The hardest part of the job are the night shifts. St John Ambulance lectures are really good tutors.

I enjoy volunteering for St John VIC as it allows me to develop skills in health and allows me to have the opportunities to help people. It gives you the chance to meet new people along the way and increase your first aid skills

Lack of support with lethargic response from management. Issues left unresolved. No chain of command and no respect for line managers. No progression of complaints as no one seems to want to resolve them. Training standards questionable for an organization who prides themselves on such high standards delivering first aid. Trainers have to be self reliant as they receive very little support from management. Resources are old and questionably maintained.
Pros
Met some very nice people under difficult circumstances
Cons
