just ok
Aircraft Inspector (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MOFebruary 6, 2018
wasn't a horrible place to work but they went out of their way to find ways not to give raises even after you went above and beyond what was expected of you. management didn't know what they were doing and probably cost the company a ton of money by not listening to the suggestions of those who had been in the industry for years. they didn't treat their loyal employees well

Definitely recommend to gain experience
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Everett, WAJanuary 21, 2018
ATS is a stepping stone to bigger companies like Boeing. The salary is not bad but if you want to earn more you have to find another job. The raises are incredibly small and the health insurance is so expensive. There are definitely better employers if you get the experience.
Pros
Easy to get hired
Cons
no long term future

Not a bad Job to get started with in aircraft maintenance

Great place to learn
A&P Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Everett, WAJanuary 2, 2018
Working as an A&P mechanic straight out of school was great, people are easy to get along with for the most part. However if you are after and active career path then this may not be a permanent place to work. Most days it's the same thing, looking for a more rewarding job.
Pros
Most of the leads are great, as long as you keep busy.
Cons
Pay isnt close to industry standards

Loved working there
Hanger Custodian (Former Employee) –  Everett, WANovember 2, 2017
I loved working there because I am an aircraft nut. I worked the swing shift there from 2:00pm to 10:30 at night. The working experence was great there. I would still be working there if the company wasn't sold to another owner. After the company was sold, I was with the group of personal who was laid off.

Good balance, Entrenched industry
Program Manager - Engineering (Current Employee) –  Everett, WAOctober 17, 2017
Good place to advance for qualified persons. Long term employees define culture and hold back management from making bigger changes. Entrenched industry with low margins makes needed improvements and work perks hard to achieve. Nice friendly people and community feel, but overall can't get out of its own way. Tends to repeat mistakes. Owned by an investment company so likely to be put up for sale in coming years.
Pros
friendly and low stress
Cons
Fails to make meaningful progress in known areas of deficiency

Thought is was good company, learned it is NOT!
Inventory Clerk (Former Employee) –  Everett, WASeptember 30, 2017
Worked hard but my work was not recognized or appreciated. You'll get shafted even if you know you did nothing wrong. They don't know a good worker when they have one. A lot of employees are on their phone for most the shift & hardly work, they take advantage of company but ATS doesn't care. Don't bother giving it your all because it's a waste of time. They don't care! You'll get blamed for something you didn't do, so watch out, you could lose your job for something you didn't even do! They treat people unfairly, the whole place is a joke! A bunch of liars & two faced leads & managers. Pay sucks too!

Stagnation
Aviation Technician (Current Employee) –  Everett, WASeptember 19, 2017
Job is very stagnant. easy to find yourself with no opportunity for advancement. Very low pay.

positives are tooling is usually very well supplied for mechanics to do their required duties.

The work isn't bad but I'm not a fan of how the company is run
AVIATION MECHANIC (Former Employee) –  Everett, WAAugust 13, 2017
The work varies depending on the day so you get a nice broad experience but they don't understand when the have a good worker. They promote from within the company but they promote based on who they are friends with rather than who actually works hard and does a decent job.

Great for entry level
Master Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Everett, WAAugust 2, 2017
Co workers in immediate area are great.

Too much in upper management, most of the time we get along fine without 75% of them. The division I work at had no director for about 5 months and didnt crash and burn.
No true pay increases, they cant decide on what kind of pay increase program they would like.

Talking with the longer serving mechanics, seems like benefits such as holiday and PTO have been cut back by a significant amount and no signs of them changing that any time soon.

They give you "64" hours of holiday time but you can only really count that as 48 hours since they will just auto take that from you on Christmas and Thanksgiving.

Perfect for learning aviation, getting experience and moving on.
Pros
Good starting experience, get the 3-5 years and start looking elsewhere
Cons
Hard to feel like they are trying very hard to retain talent.

Great place to learn sheetmetal work
General Mechanic ATS (Former Employee) –  Everett, WAApril 24, 2017
I came in fresh out of A&P school and learned alot about sheetmetal work. The biggest problem is not the job, but the cost of living in the Seatlle WA area.
Pros
Good hours, good experience

It a good place to work, the shop is very clean I love it, we clean as we go. Supervisor treat the employee fair, but the there are no sick day. When get sick you have to take a vacation day. That's the only thing I didn't like here.

Fun workplace with all the equipment you need.
Aviation Technician (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOFebruary 15, 2017
A typical day at work from me as first shift starts from 5:30 Am to 4 pm. Everyday is a new day we learn something new every time.The company is well management. you find people from all over the world. the enjoyable thing is to learn to do something new by your self, and get to work with people with different experiences.
