The last time that I talked to PHI was in '92, when I left the Army. They didn't even offer an interview at that time. It's a cyclic business.
I have a few friends working the oil patch so I'm somewhat familiar with PHI/Air Log, etc. I'm sure that they are fine companies. I do think that there are some benefits to a "hospital-based" vs "vendor-based" EMS operation, though.
I've considered the GOM from time to time (especially now that the starting pay is reasonable) but I think that I'm going to ride this pony for a while longer. If I still have a job waiting when the Guard's done with me, I'll owe my boss for a while. If things change, I might hit you up for some advice. Thanks.
