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.
CNC Operator (Current Employee) – Englewood, CO – August 21, 2015
You arrive to work see where your machine is at and plug away at a waiting work load.
The Good: The Company is well organized and has fairly new machines most of them less than 5 years old. They pay well and allow plenty of overtime. The tooling and equipment is top notch. All programs are pulled from the same place and comes with a set-up sheet with any notes taken for the previous runs. An excellent group of employees who are actually qualified for the work they are doing.
The Bad: As with most "well oiled machines", there are a number of things that slip through the cracks. Missing dimensions on blueprint, over sites in the programming department, frequent changes in procedures from both inspections and engineering, zero stock production to reduce constant demand from the machine shop, zero scrap allowance, an unwillingness to change faults in "proven programs", more overtime than you asked for . For the most part this is easy to overlook, the only reason I'm looking for other employment opportunities is the extremely long contract period and the lack of worker befits such as health insurance or vacation/sick time while under contract. 9 months in and it is not even up for discussed yet. Covering medical, dental, and optical out of pocket for a year to a year and a half while awaiting hire is absolutely unacceptable to me.
Largest Air Medical Ambulance Company in the world.
Communications Specialist (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – August 16, 2015
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.
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.
Associate (Former Employee) – Englewood, CO – June 2, 2015
They are best known for giving people three times as much work as they should have, paying people half of what they are worth, and moving people out instead of moving people up. Save the headache and work anywhere but there.
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.
Flight RN (Current Employee) – SELKIRK NY – February 23, 2015
A typical day of work would be to take over the care of a post operative patient that is waking up confused from a surgery that they don't remember falling asleep for. Stabilize the patient and transfer the patient to the floor or home. Educating the patient if there are specific instructions to go home with as well as basic education material for post operative care. Management team is great. Nurse manage is well rounded and knows how to handle a large group. Co workers are transient at the moment. There is quite a few travelers in the PACU at this time. Hardest part of the job is learning all the different needed equipment post operatively and learning the acronyms for the procedures/surgeries. Most enjoyable part of the job is assisting people in achieving goals so that they can go home and be comfortable.
assistance towards education, currently going for my msn
a lot of the women have only ever worked at gfh and do not know what any other facility is like.
Technician (Former Employee) – Englewood, CO – September 15, 2014
I worked for this company as an Aircraft Technician for about 3 years. The Technicians are treated like slaves and abused. This companies answer to nearly every problem they encounter or create themselves starts with three words, "have the mechanics...________" (fill in the blank).
I saw this company waste literally millions on bad management decisions yet they will make your life miserable if you need something to do your job. As a Technician you will find yourself ever increasingly doing tasks that have nothing to do with your core and most critical duties.
I can safely say I was one of their better employees and I corrected many issues with their aircraft and it's documentation while I worked there. The aircraft under my care were left in better condition than I found them. That's a fact. The first day on the job I determined the helicopter was not technically airworthy as I found it. The point is I did a good job for them as an employee, definitely above average with a significantly higher than average productivity percentage. When I voluntarily resigned from the company in good standing, they treated me like a jilted bride and sought to harm me anyway they could, savagely dismissing my work record and contributions as well as the circumstances (personal, family) that caused me to resign.
They made significant deductions from my final pay that were essentially unjust and illegal but I could not afford to hire a lawyer to fight this.
lots of job openings at numerous locations across the country.
petty, vindictive, soulless bureuacracy, huge potential liability exposure for pilots & techs. many more cons too numerous to list...
