    Cal Fire

    Seasonal Firefighter I (Current Employee) Mendocino, CA

    ProsGreat place for wildland fires. Some people know a lot and are willing to help you become a great firefighter. I have a lot respect for those on Helittack and those who do the job right. The camaraderie is second to none.

    ConsNot everyone lives up to the standard. Sometimes tradition blinds progression. And there are those who are unfit, mentally, physically, and emotionally for the job, but are promoted ahead of you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time evaluating each individual and have higher standards of character on and off duty. Pay attention to the relation each firefighter is developing with each other.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
