BE bought my company,and soon thereafter laid us all off. Not good.

I worked for Honeywell Aerospace, who then sold our business unit to BE Aerospace. I was not happy with that change. BE is just not the company that Honeywell is.

chemical processor (Former Employee) –  Lenexa, KSMarch 10, 2017
I would not recommend working for this company at the Lenexa Kansas facility. Worked there for a long time and seen numerous turnover in management. The company is only downsizing and the management does not care about their employees. They say they want your ideas on continuous improvement but in reality they usually have a committee of people to tell you how your job responsibilities should be done. I felt like I was treated like a beginning employee and I worked there over 20 years.
Pros
co workers were easy to communicate with
Cons

The worst place I have ever worked!!!!
Lead Assembler (Former Employee) –  Great Falls, MTJuly 31, 2016
Do not work for this company! The only good I recieved from this company was soldier experience. They say you are solder certified but you will not actually recieved any kind of certificate for it. There is a favoritism amongst the site manager and young female employees who do not even know how to do their jobs correctly. The married management has personel relationships with employees and that's how you advance at that company.
Pros
i got a paycheck
Cons
everything else

wasn't the best friendly enviroment
Assembler (Former Employee) –  New Berlin, WIJuly 11, 2016
their training was horrible they expected people to know everything without training. The work was kind of easy but they wanted it done with perfection, i liked soldering because they weren't so tough on you but if you where on the assembly line just for one minor mistake that could be fixed they would write you up. Nice hours and easy work but the management is horrible never worked in such an unprofessional enviroment with so much negativity.
Pros
breaks and lunch
Cons
no good training

Purchasing Agent (Former Employee) –  Doral, FLJuly 11, 2016
It was a great place to work, leaned many programs and official courses in Excel provided by the company. Full days work, management was strong and fair. Co-workers cared about your work and shared as a team. The hardest part of the job would be procuring dates from manufacturers, the full day went fast
Pros
Company provides a 10 lb Turkey at Thanksgiving
Cons
Very loud fire drills

Its a contract job
Sheet Metal Assembler (Former Employee) –  Tucson, AZJune 7, 2016
The job is fine but once the contract is finished so is your job. The jobs last about a year and end sooner than they begin; so it seems.
Pros

Cons

Director of Sales (Current Employee) –  New Berlin, WIMarch 8, 2016
It was hard to provide great products and services with out the support of upper management. Since the by out of Emteq they have lost more than 26 people due to Corporate not willing to spend the money to finish new and keep existing products up to date.

Do not work here: BE Aerospace is outsourcing all their work to foreign facilites
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Lenexa KSOctober 19, 2015
Terrible upper management that has no clue as to how to properly run a machine shop. They refuse to invest in modern up-to-date mills, lathes, or CNC machines. They look to outsource everything to cut costs. Management is more concerned with daily meetings than actually meeting the needs of their employees to provide a better product for the consumers.

The hardest part of the job is trying to stay motivated and feel appreciated while upper management ignores you completely.

The best part of the day is working with some very wonderful people who are hourly and not management.

Do not work here.

The good, the bad and the ugly at times. That is business!!
Supply Chain Material Inventory Manager (Current Employee) –  Winston Salem, NCSeptember 6, 2015
A day starts with determining what parts are hot for the floor. Many parts are being shipped for vendors so that is great deal of seeking parts. There is a strong working environment for keeping production up and running. The employee make up laugh even when they are working hard and long hours.
Pros
Lean Projects
Cons
Union, Overtime because of staffing issues, planning of material
