They had good off time events and sometimes feed you for free.
Senior Technician (Former Employee), Columbus, MSOctober 12, 2013
Pros: free lunches, christmas party and bonuse
Cons: short breaks and too much walking.
I learned how to assemble a machine that was made up of many parts from many manufacturers.I enjoyed my co-workers but management was lacking as were human resources.The hardest part of the job was having to physically move the aircraft in or out of a work area. The most enjoyable thing was seeing your a/c go to flightline.

Good job but has numerous issues.
Senior Aircraft Technician (Former Employee), Columbus, MSSeptember 12, 2013
Pros: christmas bonus and paid time off between xmas and new years.
Cons: unqualified people in upper positions.
Good pay and benefits however many of the negative as aspects can outweigh the good over time. Management was unwilling to accept any ideas for improvements and/or change to any aspect of the schedule or routine.

The location of the facility is rather remote and requires driving/commuting long distances. Most employees drive 30 miles one way, many – more... drive as far as 70 miles one way.

A helicopter is a very expensive machine. The typical customers are military, fire, police or other governmental agencies. Therefore orders (future) work is uncertain and makes future work/job security somewhat in question. – less

Best work enviroment I've ever worked in.
Production Control Specialist (Current Employee), Columbus, MSJuly 25, 2013
Typical day is working with computers and employee interaction.
I learned a whole lot about SAP, Excel, and lean manufacturing.
I consider all of my co-workers close friends now.
The hardest part of my job is continuous on the job training.
I enjoy almost every aspect of my job. It's a job I am very proud of.
I wish I could work here my whole life but – more... we rely on government contracts and the economy is very scary. – less

Secret- Get into the right department
Contract Sheet Metal/ Service Mechanic (Former Employee), Grand Prairie, TXNovember 30, 2012
Pros: great work environment
Cons: beware the old qa rep.
i got stuck in the Tail boom shop where the QA guy had been bounced around every department for the last 36yrs. Whatever department he's in now, don't take the job. Don't worry, you can pick him out yourself within the first week.
