    After submitting a job application, personally how long do you wait before not hearing any response that you take the intended job out of consideration and move on? (Not counting those random out of the blue jobs where recruiters hit you up 2-3 months later after you’ve applied.) I’ve been on the hiring end so I know how the processes work, so I give it a week max now as an applicant. I wanted to ask what everyone else’s personal timeline was?

      Pros

      CareFlite has excellent leadership in place who truly listen to your ideas and value your opinions. The organization as a whole is very supportive and is a family friendly atmosphere.

      Cons

      EMS is a tough industry to work in in general. There are long hours and hard days. Staffing shortages don’t help, and there are lots of shifts to pick up. The company is however working on ways to assist their employees with this.

      The ambulances sometimes turn on, and occasionally we don’t shut trucks down due to low staffing

      Pros

      The people that you work with day to day are generally awesome. Protocols are fairly progressive, and the medical director is great.

      Cons

      Management is all either detached from the job at hand or has their hands tied by the very top of the food chain.

      Pros

      Getting some medical experience I guess.

      Cons

      Not emergency medicine like what you would think. Almost entirely a transport service, not 911.

      Pros

      You will get a paycheck, make good friends and have some good days

      Cons

      Safety is a high priority here however, when something goes wrong and a safety feature fails- such as tracking of a vehicle, no repercussions occur for the oversight that should have been handled by a possibly lazy employee who knew of this issue. When an employee not in management- makes a mistake or oversight- a write up is given and possible retraining occurs. The inconsistency of how non management and management employees are treated leaves the door open to thoughts of nepotism and good ole boys club.

      Pros

      Lots of hour and overtime always available, consistent pay, and job security.

      Management is not very good, they brush off a lot of problems when brought up, not good with fixing equipment when it needs it. A lot of miscommunication.
