Field Mechanic (Former Employee) – Saint Joseph, MO – July 27, 2013
My day started by checking in with the crew (medical and Aviation) to find out any issues that may have been encountered over night or the weekend. I then checked the aircraft, aircraft records and inspection sheets to make sure the aircraft had no upcoming inspections or tracked the next inspections due. I ensured the aircraft was clean and airworthy at the beginning of each day. I ensured base maintenance work area, storage area, base consumables were clean and not expired. The company management has a goal to be safe and a culture of safety, but has a limited supporting effort for mechanic's. I had great personal relationships with all persons at the base. There was no problem we could not solve among ourselves. The hardest part of the job of the job was getting the support of the management in performing some tasks. The most enjoyable part of the job was the relationships formed and cooperation between the medical crew and the pilots at the base.
Production Planner (Former Employee) – Englewood, CO – June 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.
An absolutely outstanding company to work for. Excellent culture among the flight crews, pilots and management. Cutting edge education and training with many opportunities for additional continuing education. Can't think of anything to complain about with this company.
Helicopter Ambulance Pilot (Former Employee) – Clarksdale, MS – July 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.
Communication Specialist (Former Employee) – Omaha ne – August 3, 2016
Great employees, I have not worked their in over a year, although when I was there the only part I did not like was the hours. That is something you will deal with in any medical field for the most part though.
DATA INTEGRITY SPECIALIST (Current Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – May 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.
Contracts, INS Lead, Cust. Service and Collections (Former Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – April 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.
Learning about all different aspects of the medical field.
FLIGHT PARAMEDIC (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 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.
Lots of days off.
Unstable business environment and long hours on duty.
Productive work place and great peers within all departments.
Payroll Administrator (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO – January 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.
Great place to work at.
Manual payroll working with and downloading spreadsheets.
Largest Air Medical Ambulance Company in the world.

Captain (Former Employee) – Walterboro, SC – July 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.
Rewarding work, great team evnironment at the base level
Inventory Analyst II (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – June 16, 2015
The job itself was great. Did not have a lot of communication between departments which cause trouble. Work was very intense. Hard to implement new procedures with old school mentality of company. Very good company to work for.
If you want to be told your female manager is treated the way she is because she's a female - perfect place for you!
Medical Aircraft Transport Coordinator (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 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.
