I heard Aero Air out of KHIO is looking for Air Ambulance Captains! Also they have a on-demand pax charter department that's pretty good.

I learn to fly out of BFI (say, it kinda rhymes!) and that place is crawling with FBOs and stuff. I see lots of corporate jets, cargo (DHL, ABX). And there's always Kenmore Air in Lake Union and my permanent partiality - Alaska Airlines. Anyway, if you'd like, I will inquire at my FBO.

I used to work for their charter dept, knew a couple of Air Ambulance CPT's and FO's. If I remember correctly, Ambulance CPT's make 35K per yr. They fly turbo commanders.
Right now the Chief Pilot for the charter dept is Vince Hamblin. Last time I checked in (approx 1 month ago) they weren't looking for pilots for the charter dept, but the Ambulance side (seperate entity) was.

Ameriflight now has PDX outstations that are open. I believe the outstation is Klamath Falls with a night layover in PDX every night. This is a Beech 99 run.

Been there done that. I was a new hire in feb of 03. Left in oct of 05. It is the company policy to not rehire any pilot that leaves. They have had really bad experiemces in the past. I talked to 2 chief pilots and had them pushing for it but no luck. Upper mamagement still says no. Stupid policy but it is there loss.
