After nearly a year out of work I took a job near my house at the end of december driving a wheelchair van for an ambulance company. At this station we have 10 ambulances and 4 wheelchair vans. No special skills or training needed to drive the vans, just a clean driving record. Of course the dispatchers and ambulance EMT guys look down on the van drivers. Well, Monday I accepted the position of Station Manager. The owner asked me in the driver interview if I'd be interested in a management position down the road but I had no idea they needed a station manager until after being hired. There are of course a couple of guys unhappy about a non EMT being hired as Station Manager, but they don't know that I have 25 years experience as a manager at this point. I've been working the 330 am to noon shift so I haven't really gotten to know many people yet, but that's about to change. Anyway, I'm psyched to get started on Monday after they find someone to take my shift.
