Not Impressed...
Pilot, Lifemed Contract (Current Employee) –  AlaskaOctober 18, 2018
I would not recommend this company, there are many other great options with better management and benefits.
It looks very appealing from the outside, but if you stick around for any time you will see more and more things from business practices to management tactics that will cause you to look elsewhere for longterm employment, management hopes pilots will stay for 2 years at most as stated by management.
PIlots are pressured to fly broken airplanes and in marginal weather conditions, if you stand your ground and try to be above-bar and legal your job is threatened.
They are the only company out there today that still have a written training contract for Pilots.
Pros
Few

Local Managers lack knowledge
Base Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Anchorage, AKMay 12, 2018
Giving the job offer and later cut out, Local Manager is a pilot without current methods and workflows. The office is not automated with current technology. Favoritism is big and entitlement of people in positions lack all skills to be any form of managers. I would caution as they say one thing and do another. Tried to place a low paid ramper in my position that has no experience to pay them less than job position requirements. The schedule is all excel sheets and whiteboards. There is current day automation that managers can choose from but that would intimidate a local manger who manages by sitting down at a desk.
Pros
My own office

Great and fun company.
CSR (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORSeptember 13, 2017
Great company. If you work hard the company will reward you. If you are lazy just wanting to collect a pay check you probably won't like it as you will be micromanaged

Has its good with it's bad but mostly good
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORSeptember 7, 2017
Has its good with it's bad but mostly good. It would be nice if they match the 401(k) but The president has given bonuses out for the last few years that you could put in your 401(k) overall it's a great company to work for. I would have stayed but had to move out of state to take care of my parents
Pros
Job security
Cons
Some of the employees have entitlement issues

Solid - well run company
Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORJune 8, 2017
I have been a mechanic here at Aero for a little over a year. It's rare to find companies like this one! Fast growing NW company with small company feel. They reward good performance and weed out the poor performers and disgruntled staff . Some mechanics who quit have called asking to come back. Unfortunately the spots are usually already filled. The pay is comparable for the experience level. Easy to live on the wage. This company is solid, and well run. That is job security as far as I'm concerned.
Pros
Solid company, good shifts, year end bonus.
Cons
Not the highest pay but nowhere near the lowest.

Poor management, very low pay
Pilot in Command (Current Employee) –  Anchorage, AKApril 20, 2017
Management is out of state, with very little communication and support. Pay is very low compared to the industry, no pay scale, no yearly raise, even to keep up with inflation, Pilots that have been here for 10+ years make the same or less than pilots who were just hired. Company negotiates a different "deal" for everyone, there is no standard or baseline pay. You are not rewarded/compensated for doing extra work, thus no incentive to go above and beyond for the customer. Very high turnover with all the pilots at all the bases. You fly quite a bit, so it is hard to enjoy the on-call nature of the job. They employ numerous full time "contract pilots" who make $150+ more a day than committed full time employees.
This could very easily be a very high level 135 company that everyone wants to work at if they just simply tweaked a few things.
Pros
Week on week off schedule, on call from home.
Cons
Management is very poor with very little communication, Pay very low for industry, no pay scale, no yearly raises, yearly training is done on your time off, training pay is very low.

solid
pilot (Current Employee) –  alaskaJune 26, 2016
company has been around a long time, and with the mix of customers and work seems to be set up for longer term survival.
Won't get rich here, at least I don't see how, but reasonable pay and basic benefits.
Decent equipment, and mostly good people. Appears that you can move "up" or "over" to other areas of the operation, but its not necessarily easy.
Training obligation is supposed to be better now, and sounds ok from what I can see.
Lots of pilots in the senior spots that have been here a long time, which is generally a good thing, but makes it harder to move up.
Pros
old, relatively stable company, with decent pay, benefits, and diversity of work
Cons
Can be hard to move up, or "over"

Not the worst place I've worked
Pilot (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORJune 1, 2016
This company is run off of trying to pay employees as little as possible. While its seems the company has admirable roots, it becomes apparent after a short time of employment that the owner is only concerned with maximizing profits.
Pros
Awesome co-workers, decent schedule
Cons
Pay is substandard to comparable positions, No 401k matching, 2 year contract for pilots on initial type, No electronic flight bag still have to do jepp and other nav updates, Annual recurrent training is un-necessarily painful taking roughly 80 hours on a computer, No extra pay for re-current training as it is expected to be done on shift, No pay scale or automatic increases

Amazing People and Clientelle
Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORFebruary 8, 2016
A typical day ran like clock work, the front desk manager would always be in a ray of sunshine in the morning. Getting the coffee ready for all the workers in the back was the general start, greeting all your fellow employees as they come in to start their day. Going by our flight schedule to see what we needed to get ready for customers, whether we needed to get food they had ordered, call the local rental car agency to get cars dropped off, etc. A wonderful place to meet people, always someone new coming in and the military birds were the best to watch fly in.
Pros
Fun, Great People and a great Team atmosphere
Cons
Not close enought for me to still work there

Great staff, poor managment

Love the people that you get to work with and the customers you meet. Everything else is pretty bad. People do not get raises very often and promotions are very few and far between.
Pros
Great Staff and inveresting customers
Cons
managment is horrible and the pay raises and advancement is horrible

Horrible Company!
Purchasing Agent (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORMarch 26, 2015
The President of this company expects his workers to do everything that it takes to make him money, without wanting to pay them any of it. You will be expected to work your job (which will have unrealistic goals anyway), then do the guy that they just fired's job too, all for a non-liveable wage.

Lame place! Good luck!
Pros
Mandatory overtime!
Cons
Everything
