Lack of onboarding and poor training. Septic culture that celebrates mediocrity.
There is none. Plain and simple.
It is clear that across the company everyone is out for themselves. Never have I worked in a place where everyone has stated that the people at their base have poor attitudes, do not care to pull their weight or just flat do not get along. There is no accountability or expectation of professionalism or common courtesy for other employees.
Tow the company line, don’t think for yourself. It doesn’t matter that medicine and other aspects of training, crew resource management, patient care, technology, paperwork (administration), aviation, and equipment have evolved from 30 years ago.......just do what your told- they know best.
Lack of follow-up and follow through. Items that are communicated down the chain are not items that are important to ensuring company mission, vision and values are strengthened. There is a serious disconnect between what works in reality and what executive management thinks should work.
All genders are represented in each job function.
Umgang mit älteren Kollegen
There is respect for people that are liked or at least tolerated no matter the age.
Karriere / Weiterbildung
There is none. Don’t know what else to say. There is no training, no expectations to improve yourself and no pathways to promotion. Working for a flight service does look good on a resume to other employers, so that’s a plus.
Gehalt / Sozialleistungen
Pay scales are very far off industry standards through out the company. There are initiatives for the pilots to try and raise their pay, but this is seemingly too little too late and the medical crew members are left lagging behind all other employees. Seems, being able to fly in a helicopter is compensation enough. Just remember the cow......
Lack of basic efficiency. Usually only one computer for med crew members to work on reports which can lead to a significant back log in busy shifts. This also does not allow for a back up if a computer stops working (which happens all the time). The equipment that is issued or purchased for the bases is the bottom of the line and repairing or replacing something involves multiple phone calls and mailing something back to either Texas or Missouri and then waiting for a return item.....just to pray it works....at least better than the last one. Items that are broken at the base that should be maintained at the base by the program manager or the base mechanic never are repaired and there is no accountability for these repairs, or lack there of. If you see your program manager or mechanic more than 4 hours a month it means they are talking to the fire department that has come to out the flames that finally erupted from the base or helicopter due to being passed their sell by date and lack of proper upkeep. Tourniquets and bandaids my friend.
Umwelt- / Sozialbewusstsein
Yea.......no. There is no loyalty and be sure that they are not there to help you succeed, but rather see if you will join the festering ranks along with them. If not, you’re left on the outside.
There are a lot of days off, and plenty of days on shift that there are no flights- however the pay scale is so below national average and tilted to one side (away from medical crew members) that off days are spent just trying to earn a living. These jobs do not make us rich, but they should pay a good wage so that employees can be focused on the high demands of the job, remain enthusiastic and therefore reduce the significant amount of turn over the company has.
It has been made clear that this company is known to have less than stellar standards, however, the individual crew members can make a very good impression and serve their communities well if they are personally motivated. The services that are calling the company understand that those individuals are handicapped on their job by their uppers.
- The company CEO needs to be replaced with a competent manager and all else will start to fall in place. Poor company performance falls on a poor manager. Always.
This all being said, they do have a vested interest in caring for the rural community of this country and have strived to make that a reality.
Too much to list.
