Flight Nurse/Paramedic (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, TXJune 9, 2017
Great company! Very supportive of med crews and pilots. We are given the tools and training we need to be successful in our missions. Each base is individualized. Each base has a different personality,

High standards and great schedule
Flight Paramedic (Current Employee) –  IllinoisJune 4, 2017
Each base has a different schedule, but for most of the bases you will basically work 4 days one week (every other day) and then have a week off. The training is great and the pay is better than anywhere else in the Midwest for medical crews.
Pros
Compensation, training, schedule
Cons
High stress level patients and tests during internship

Corporate management lies
Communications Specialist (Current Employee) –  O'Fallon, MOApril 26, 2017
Cool place to work, good mission etc, but high turnover and too many mid-level and upper management. Arrogant, dishonest upper management. Upper management likes to say things and make promises, but then when the rubber meets the road they forget about you and promises are broken. Time for a changing of the guard.
Pros
The helicopters, the mission to provide access
Cons
Too many managers/ too much upper management

Ael
Flight Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  IllinoisFebruary 10, 2017
Lots of autonomy and benefits above average, medical insurance has excellent coverage. 84 hours a pay period for med crew, plenty of opportunity for overtime if wanted. Every base develops a unique culture and you should be prepared to adapt quickly to changes.

Air Evac Lifeteam
Communications Specialist (Current Employee) –  O'Fallon, MOFebruary 10, 2017
I have spent three years working for Air Evac Lifeteam. I would state that it has been a great experience. With that being said, it is one of the most disorganized companies to work for. It is a continuous revolving door, and the management leaves much to be desired. They are unprofessional, and lack organizational skills. They have the highest turnover rate out of any company that I have ever worked for. I wouldn't utilize Air Evac unless it was just a stepping stone to get you to a better opportunity.
Pros
Pay/Hours
Cons
Poor Management, High Turnover Rate

Helicopter EMS Pilot
Helicopter EMS Pilot (Current Employee) –  Mineral Wells, TXJanuary 9, 2017
A very rewarding job that allows you to give back to the local community. Typically a 7 day on shift of 12 hours followed by 7 days off. Rotate from a day hitch to a night hitch. Night Vision Goggles and glass cockpit along with a dual axis auto pilot make the flying very easy and fun.
Pros
Set Schedule
Cons
Lots of sitting an waiting to fly

Flight Paramedic (Current Employee) –  KentuckyDecember 21, 2016
Air Evac is a great company to work for, I have never had any issues with them. They always take care of their employees. Pay is decent, and benefits are good. Lots of overtime if you are willing to drive.

Mixed Emotions
Communication Specialist II (Former Employee) –  West Plains, MODecember 21, 2016
Good place to work. Excellent Communities to serve. Staff are like family, although, management leaves much to be desired. Experience from Air Evac could motivate you to make major life changes, as some positions within can be extremely powerful and life changing.
Pros
Work with good people; pay is okay; benefits are okay; great communities, and overall, just a great life experience.
Cons
Management! They are seriously disconnected from their good hard working people, and they fail to meet reasonable expectations across the board.

No longer a good company
Patient Account Representative (Former Employee) –  West Plains, MOAugust 14, 2016
I worked for this company for many years. At first it was owned by several small town individuals who had a dream of saving lives in rural America. They treated each patient like a person and treated their employees like family. Then the company was sold to a huge corporate company. Patients became numbers and employees became slaves. Prices more than quadrupled in just a few years but employee compensation decreased. Many aren't even allowed to use their PTO while managers are constantly on vacations that they lie about. Managers won't let long term dedicated employees advance because they are afraid to let someone smarter than they are move up in the company. They are losing money daily because they hire people with no experience for management positions. If you are looking for a long term job don't go here because it will be bankrupt within 2 years.
Pros
Not many
Cons
List goes on and on

I truly love working for this company its mission and values are SPOT ON!
Critical Care Flight Paramedic (Current Employee) –  O'Fallon, MOJune 26, 2016
Progressive Progressive Progressive! It speaks volumes when administrative positions are few and far between within a company that opens doors in multiple locations nation wide yearly. This also tells me current employees are willing to relocate thus leading higher employee retention. I may be wrong but would say the average employee's length with this company is 10 years if not more. If your in search of a position in the air medical industry start here you'll be glad you did. Yeah pay isn't the "highest" in the industry if you don't like it change it move onto another career path or company.
Pros
Safety is first and foremost, if it can't be done safely it shouldn't be done no matter what it is.
Cons
None

Member Services Representative (Former Employee) –  KentuckyMarch 22, 2016
If you like not knowing if you will have a job from month to month then this is the place for you

basically membership sales reps are thrown to the wolves. with a huge territory to cover. compensation is horrible for the job requirments. you will work lots of evenings and weekends and you will have to find your own leads while you compete with corporate.

my regional manager was awful and wouldnt let us use our marketing budget.

Biller (Former Employee) –  West Plains, MOJanuary 20, 2016
It's a corporate office and you're nothing but a work horse. You don't get paid what you deserve for the work you do. Upper management plays favorites, doesn't matter if you are deserving of the position or not if you suck up enough you'll get it.
Pros
none
Cons
lots

This company demonstrates the passion it has for excellent patient care and advocacy, and it begins at the top. There is a strong desire to constantly improve which does not mean we are re-inventing the wheel but just continuing to improve and drive for excellence.

Billing Rep (Current Employee) –  West Plains, MOAugust 5, 2015
Its ok...too much favoritism in this company. Bonuses have gone down dramatically in the last couple years. Benefits are good but not the greatest. My co workers are the best part of my job.

Bell 206 Base Pilot (Former Employee) –  West Plains, MOJune 18, 2015
Air Evac is a top notch company. Prior to working HEMS I was concerned about the competitiveness between providers leading to pushing weather minimums. Air Evac immediately put that to rest. Also, the level of community interaction is extremely fulfilling.
Pros
Job satisfaction
Cons
Extremely low compensation
