Transit Technician C (Former Employee), DFW Airport, TX – July 6, 2013
Pros: the people
Cons: corporate and the local hr person
Just like everywhere else you go it's the people that make it worth staying. Don't expect Corporate in Canada to care. I went out on a personal illness and disability and never received any information from HR person locally or from corporate. period. I mean absolutely nothing. If they didn't pay you on time they simply don't care. Not even enough to – more... give you an explanation. Make sure you get Long Term Disability just in case. Aetna saved my life. Without it I would truly be hurting. The policy Bombardier uses could be better, it's only 60% unlike other companies that make it 80% of your pay. Blue Cross Blue Shield is not very good but then again that was a Bombardier decision. Think of yourself as a small gear in a very large machine and follow the rules that everyone uses and you'll be fine. Just make sure you take all the insurance out that you can get. Thanks to the location manager (EP) at DFW Airport, he's exceptional. HR is another subject. If I had a choice of going back to work there.....I would. Thanks go to the great guys I worked with....... – less
Ideal corporate setting for Cat Herding professional in management
Director of Cat Herding Operations (Current Employee), KS – July 1, 2013
Pros: wonderful sense of professional accomplishment daily, beautiful cat's to pet
Cons: not a pleasant outcome for non-performing cats.
I can't say enough about Bombardier's Management Development for Cat Herding Operations program. After a career dedicated to the study and profession of Feline and Cat Herding Sciences I was thrilled to complete the program while exceeding Bombardier's top-management expectations. I was immediately assigned to the Director of Cat Herding Operations – more... and my team has earned an impressive 98% herd rate... a win/win for an industry-leading aerospace company. – less
Test Track Technician/ Electronic Technician (Former Employee), West Mifflin, PA – June 27, 2013
Working together with other technicians pre- testing trains inside the facility. Enjoyed completing actual testing on outdoor test track. My manager was a fair person as a boss. The hardest part of my job was to make sure the trains were tested and loaded for delivery on time.
STAFF ASSISTANT / INVOICE ANALYST (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FL – May 22, 2013
This is a great company to work for. Job security is great and benefits are out of this world. If you have an opportunity to work for them, keep it. Although, the pay is not so great, but the benefits talks for itself and time off you can accrue.
weak ineffective management. Old boys club if your not in the click forget any opportunity.
Aircraft maintenance (Current Employee), Teterboro – April 22, 2013
Pros: good benefits package.
Cons: no opportunity. inept leadership. financially unstable.
It's apparent that Flexjet is a nonprofit organization of bombardier. Its poor leadership will keep it that way. Parent company Bombardier has conducted annual employee surveys that show the problems clearly, but action is never taken to rectify them in over four years. No ability to communicate effectively. No one is able to lead teams or groups in – more... one clear conscience direction. Little to no opportunity in Flexjet. You will be forced to go somewhere else for advancement. I have seen managers give negative references to other employers looking to hire former employees. that is the negative. The positive is good health care, pay, and 401k. – less
Avionics Tech/Aircraft Tech (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FL – March 29, 2013
Pros: work on technically advanced aircraft
Cons: long hours
If your looking for an aircraft Bombardier is the place to buy one. The work force takes great pride in putting out a exceptional product. The hardest part of the job is that engineering can be slow in getting the information needed to complete the job. Making the customer happy.
Buyer (Former Employee), Tucson, AZ – March 15, 2013
Pros: easy work hours
Cons: see above statements.
After working for this company for eight years, I noticed a culture of imbalance of priorities that was very disturbing to me. Supervisors were placing unfair and impractical objectives on their employees with the expectation of completion with unrealistic time frames. If I had any illusions as to how they did business before I was employed there, I – more... have none at all now. I would not recommend anyone seeking employment at the Tucson facility. – less
Assembler (Former Employee), Plattsburgh – March 7, 2013
I worked here for 2 years as a temp and then was fired claiming a " quality issue" no write up no evaluation, But there were people hired on that couldn't read a measuring tape or even read for a matter of fact
Shipping/Receiving Clerk/Inventory Control Clerk (Former Employee), Taylor, MI – February 15, 2013
Learned alot about warehouse efficiency and productive planning. Gained knowledge of the warehouse atmosphere and what it takes to operate effectively. Obtained a Hi-Lo Driver license to assist with warehouse duties. I enjoyed this job and the variety of duties/tasks that were offered each day.
Transit Technician (Former Employee), Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson International Airport – January 30, 2013
Prepped trains for availability if needed in the transit loop. When there was down time we where able to go over diagrams, and read up on the operation of the CX100 people mover. Management could have been more accessible in my opinion. Co-workers where helpful at times. I look forward to challenging work. There was nothing really hard about any part – more... of the job. The most enjoyable part was the interaction with techs that enjoyed there jobs as much as I did, and the completion of a job well done. – less
