Rewarding work, management can be frustrating at times
Management can be disorganized, as people are often switching roles and moving around in the organization. Suggestions for improvement were almost always ignored by upper-management. Some of the younger supervisors have had little to no leadership training, which has resulted in excessive micro-management and negative feedback. That being said, I have gotten lucky with a few supervisors that would listen to my suggestions, give me additional responsibility when I asked, and provide helpful constructive and positive feedback.
In terms of the actual job, I enjoyed my daily responsibilities. Although SAR calls can be stressful and tiring, I also found them exciting and rewarding. I felt well-trained for my position, and a large emphasis was placed on continuous training. The rest of your crew can really make or break your experience, but most of the people I worked and lived with were great. As long as you have patience and a positive attitude, this job can be very enjoyable. Overall I enjoyed my time with the CCG.
