    I worked at Air Methods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was with the company for 5 years but all the real growth has been the last year.
    Fun challenges
    Some flexibility with schedules as remote work is allowed sometimes.
    Learning environment- the senior director will always take time to provide coaching and resources.

    Cons

    If you are coming in as leadership training is minimal because they expect you to be a self starter, need to reach out to fellow members of leadership rather than expect them to have a book telling you everything you need to know.
    There is a disconnect between corporate leadership and leadership directly in control of production.
    Don't expect a lot of live work balance, it was not uncommon for me to keep working till 2 AM from home to keep up with the workload.
    TOO MANY MEETINGS- and then a follow up meeting about how there are too many meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for toxic people coming into the organization.

    HR Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Air Methods (Englewood, CO) in January 2017.

    Interview

    An initial positive experience quickly turned sour. Process took months (months!) for a role that they were supposedly eager to hire for. I initially applied back in November 2016 and did the final round interview in January 2017. Corporate recruiter did a complete 180 on me. She was initially super responsive and quick to get back to me and moved me forward to the next step in the process. I understand you cannot possibly reach out to every rejected candidate, but as a final round interviewer who spent several hours doing multiple phone and on-site interviews with the entire team, it is common courtesy to let the candidate know of a decision one way or another. When I followed up I received radio silence and then I tried one more time in which she told me they are still waiting on a decision. This to me is extremely misleading and speaks volumes about the organization if they still cannot make a decision a month later. My final interview was a month ago so I think it is safe to say it's time to cut the cord. This whole experience speaks volumes about the organization and is a poor reflection of the candidate experience and the overall employment brand. Ironic thing is that this was a role to join the HR department so if this is how they treat a potential team member, I am extremely wary of how they treat other groups. Proceed with caution! Based on what I'm seeing about the Talent Acquisition interview below, it sounds like someone also went through a similar experience. Definitely advising my industry friends to stay away.
