What I like

New friends that have become like family, annual performance review and raises, bonuses and much flexibility. The company strives to give each employee a healthy balance of work life and family life. Leadership shows compassion and understanding in tough situations. I received adequate training and more than fair compensation.

What I dislike

I honestly do not disapprove of any part of the company. I believe they treat their patients, employees and their employees family with the utmost respect and compassion. The "top dogs", like the CEO and financial analysts, visit our local facility often and take time to meet and greet the other employees. This really is a wonderful company to work for.

Suggestions for improvement

The only suggestion I would make is to go back to the original individual performance bonuses VS what is in place right now in which each person qualifies for a bonus if the whole department reaches a certain quarterly goal.

EmployeeWorked at Air Evac Lifeteam in O'Fallon, MO at the time of review.

What I like

The education department strives to see you succeed during your internship.

What I dislike

Administration doesn't take the flight crew members opinion into consideration as much as they should prior to making decisions that affect them.

Suggestions for improvement

More actual training/education preparing med crew members for flight status. We know patient care but most are new to the aviation industry.

What I like

This company was fantastic to work for. They treat you well and with respect. They also put in to you what you put in to them.

The hours were extremely long and sometimes without a rest period and/or breaks.

Suggestions for improvement

The only thing I would change about this company is shorter shifts to allow for a safer environment.

EmployeeWorked at Air Evac Leasing Corporation in Lewisville, TX at the time of review.

What I like

The medical equipment is wonderful. The calls are great, and there is little to no direct supervision.

What I dislike

The pay!!!! This company pays way less than any other company providing the same sevices, forcing us to work a large amount of over time to make ends meet.

Suggestions for improvement

Increase pay and you will have less turnover.

Company Image

The image of this company is better than reality. Most, if not all, of the employees I have met, like the work and emergency response atmosphere. However, the "new ideas" that keep adding more and more administrative, non-operational requirements to each flight, thone same employees are ready to look for work elsewhere.

Workplace Safety

The aircraft maintenance is very good at my base. I am told that some bases are not so fortunate.

Handicapped Accessibility

N/A. It's helicopter operations.

Support from management

"Kneejerk" responses to isolated incidences that are followed by yet another directive, addition to the Ops Manual, or another checklist that will never stop the cause of these isolated incidences. Which is, some employees will never agree to follow the rules, they know better or they don't understand that IT IS A JOB.

Job Security

The company is short on pilots so there is very little risk.

Overall compensation for your work

Start pay and steps are extremely low. I truly kick myself for accepting this job. For the level of training required, the number of flight hours, certifications and the flight environment (vfr only, having to dodge instead of simply filing ifr) the pay is just sad. The only pilots that I am aware of that are "satified" are ones that don't mind or like working more than their 7-12's or pilots that are receiving retirement or other compensation from military service.
