Productive and a great learning experience.
Production Planner (Former Employee) –  Englewood, COJune 5, 2016
My typical day consisted of maintaining product bills of material, planning future work orders and purchase order.
I learned many things in relation to modifying medical helicopters and GPS systems.
Management was very flexible in order to plan and schedule production based on customer orders.
The hardest part of the position was to develop a production plan based on labor and machine capacities.
The most enjoyable part of my position was dealing with very skilled employees that were able to define processes that I might have been unfamiliar with.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
Some supervisers were mico managed.

Little advanced notice once they hire you.

Helicopter Ambulance Pilot (Former Employee) –  Clarksdale, MSJuly 27, 2016
Stressful missions but good support from co-workers. Highly scrutinized and regulated industries; medicine and aviation. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction of the crew members. The hardest part was keeping track of continuous changes in paperwork and procedures.

DATA INTEGRITY SPECIALIST (Current Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAMay 12, 2016
This company does not promote awards, advancement or leave room to improve your work/life. The training was brief and done via Instant Messenger. The Management was strict but did not have resources to back up the work that was being enforced.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Long hours no time for family

Very fast paced environment
Contracts, INS Lead, Cust. Service and Collections (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAApril 1, 2016
This is a very fast paced environment, which is great, you will learn so much about so many different aspects of each medical billing department. The only downside is the attitude of the managers in relations to the employees. Taking sick time, vacation time, or family emergencies is frowned upon, regardless of how much sick/vaca time you have accrued. There is mandatory overtime which is disclosed as being maybe 5 hours of overtime per week, the reality is you will be working around 50-60 hour weeks.

The best part used to be that to make up for so much mandatory overtime, there used to be a lot of department potlucks, department activities, games, and a few employee appreciation luncheons.

Overall, I had enjoyed working for this company until management took a turn for the worst. Hopefully this company will eventually fix this issue.
Pros
Learning about all different aspects of the medical field.
Cons

Air Medical Services
FLIGHT PARAMEDIC (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAFebruary 29, 2016
Air Methods is the world's largest provider of air medical transport services. I have been with the company for over 5 years now, and it has largely been a good experience. The benefits package is very good; they will match 401k contributions up to 8%. The salary for medics and nurses is somewhat lower than the industry standard, which is problematic in an area as expensive as southern California. The hardest part of the job for me has been working 24 hour shifts. My preference would be to do 12 hour shifts, but this is not an option with the company. The most enjoyable part of the job is flying around the beautiful terrain of southern California. I became a paramedic to help people and that will always be the best part of the job. You get to help people through very traumatic situations and make a difference in their lives.
Pros
Lots of days off.
Cons
Unstable business environment and long hours on duty.

Payroll Administrator (Former Employee) –  Centennial, COJanuary 1, 2016
A typical day at work is great, management is great, learned how to use Ulti Pro a new Payroll Software for me. Co-workers were extremely great to work with. Hardest part of job was staying late on Monday and Tuesdays of pay week, the most enjoyable part of the job was when payroll was finished and sent out to process.
Pros
Great place to work at.
Cons
Manual payroll working with and downloading spreadsheets.

Staff Accountant (Former Employee) –  Centennial, CONovember 19, 2015
The company is run like a huge corporation. People don't get to know each other and there are no opportunities for growth. Despite being a $500MM company, we had to have pot lucks.
Pros
Financial stable
Cons
Corporate feel, no advancement opportunities

This is a faced paced environment where no two days are alike. As a Communication Specialist you are responsible for answering inbound calls from 911 agencies and hospitals wishing to transfer patients by air.

As a Communication Specialist you are responsible for following the approved intake process and notifying the closest most appropriate aircraft to complete patient transport.

The primary job function for a Communication Specialist is flight following aircraft on all legs of the flight to ensure that the crews complete each mission safely.

Rewarding work but poor middle management
Captain (Former Employee) –  Walterboro, SCJuly 28, 2015
The people that work at the bases, for the most part, are very interested in providing safe and reliable medical care. Working closely with them is the high point of working for this company. The problem with the company rests in the middle management area of the business side. Middle managers rarely communicate directly with subordinates and will not back up their employees if something goes wrong. I have seen managers overlook blatant rules violations for some, but when a problem can be traced back to their inaction, they are quick to assess blame to a subordinate.
Pros
Rewarding work, great team evnironment at the base level
Cons
Poor/weak middle managers

Medical Aircraft Transport Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMay 14, 2015
Great benefits and hours. Laid us off. They're not worried about pt care, they worry about the dollar. The good ol boy club is who hires people. They don't care to lay you off in a heart beat if it fits their agenda.

the director was more concerned with keeping the department running as a high school and both encouraging and rewarding this type of behavior rather then growing it into a professional department.
Pros
