TriState CareFlight Reviews
Pros – Pilots are experienced and well paid.
Word-of-mouth hiring seems to find great pilots.
Aircraft are in great shape.
Mechanics are conscientious and responsive to Medical Crews and Pilots alike.
Flight Crews tend to stick together. They count on each other and form tight bonds.
Very little back stabbing in the BASE.
Base Managers do their best, but do have to choose between themselves and staff. Some times they go the direction of the Base needs.
Cons – Human Resources - One person, and, well, with 25 aircraft fully staffed, this just isn't enough in HR. Basic needs like flight suits and Insurance cards just fall to the wayside.
Most things that have to do with the Medical side.
Management is inexperienced, arrogant and punishes input from staff.
Protocols are ridiculous, to the point that most crews ignore them. Sadly as long as it's billable, and no facilities or Doctors complain, no action it taken in regard to this.
Medical equipment is not maintained. I don't mean poorly, I mean NOT.
Supply lines are badly broken and have to be costing the company tens of thousands in losses each inventory cycle..
Advice to Senior Management – Look at who you've lost over the last year. Fired because they intimidated you, or quit because they had principles.
When you find the common denominator, ask yourself if the company gained or lost.
Take a critical look at who's at the top, and how long they've been there. If the exceptional people you have lost are both more experienced and more professional than the senior management, rehire and demotions are in order.
Conduct drug screenings and anger management training at your annual retreat instead of current plan.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
