    I have been working at Erickson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The down sizing has helped young employees like myself take on more responsibilities and learn a lot really fast. Doing it for the 'resume bullet' not the pay. Its fun tho..co workers are great.

    Cons

    Just like every company I've ever worked for..they just use and abuse young people because they can and not pay them what they are worth. EVERYONE at lower management is just too over worked. The moral is low. Nothing seems to get done. They are still trying to blend Aircrane and Evergreen Ops. Its still messy.

    Advice to Management

    Develop clear lines of communication. No one is on the same page. We get directives passed down but no tools to follow through on anything no matter how hard we try. If you don't start paying the hourlies a wage that keeps up with the rising cost of living down here I can not stay working for Erickson. There are much better places to go that pay more and I won't have to live in 'Meth-ford' Im only staying because I am enjoying the work for now.

    Segment Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Erickson (Portland, OR) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Applied for position via Linked in. Gatekeeper made initial telephone interview to discuss basics of position to include outlining basic duties and responsibilities. Conversation lasted approximately 20mins. Second interview via telephone was established with hiring manager. This interview lasted for approximately 1hr and was very detailed starting from the basic framework of requirements and expectation for the position as well as requesting input and recommendations for improvements. Last interview was in-person with executive staff in Oregon. Flew into Portland for the day, met with 6x Executives Face to Face and conducted 3x Interviews with Support Staff via Teleconference.

    Reasons for Declining

    Position was advertised to be based in Florida. Requirement was subsequently changed to Oregon.
