Open & Close Technician (Former Employee), Tucson, AZOctober 24, 2013
I enjoyed working at Bombardier cause I learned how so many things on the plane. People at bombardier are so nice and respectful. They also there to help you if you need it. The Hardest part was the pressure they put on workers but I understand that's how it works and it is right. The most enjoyable part of the job is the benefits such as all types – more... of insurance they have and you can even get a career at bombardier. – less

The grass is greener somewhere else
Composite Mechanic (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAOctober 24, 2013
Pros: 5 floating holidays from day 1 and a check
Cons: management, tooling, parts, safety, technical data and support, poor morale, carelessness, and ignorance.
It is hard to believe this company is responsible for the maintenance of the equipment used to SAFELY transport passengers.
Parts never available; make it work or bypass it. Then they want to evaluate your efficiency and tell you how things need to get done quicker while working with nothing.
Tooling is the biggest joke. If you're good with channel – more... locks and a crescent wrench, working here will probably be just fine. Odds are you don't know much and will fit right in with the majority. Some of the techs are super people; many however, just shoot from the hip and never know what or why they are doing what they are. Very dangerous if you're working with high voltage / torque / horsepower equipment. Repeated violations for moving equipment with people in-between or under it.
The position sounds great when you go for the interview; however, something tells me some of the HR / Manager's used to be defense attorney's because it's a whole different story once you're actually in. I've been around and this place is definitely one for the record book of "how do they do it?"
Potential is there to be something great; however, those responsible for making the decisions need to come back out on the floor and learn the work they're responsible for overseeing. There is no union in the world that can help someplace do that; like our government, Bombardier L.A. is in serious need of restructuring.
No paycheck is worth the grief unless it's accompanied by a bottle of 151. – less

Depends on your goals
Supply Management/SAP Project Planner Intern (Former Employee), Plattsburgh, NYOctober 20, 2013
Pros: flexible scheduling
Cons: workload is non-existant.
I would not recommend interning at this company if you are looking to learn and to be kept busy throughout the duration of your internship. You are easily looked over and more commonly than not your direct supervisor is too busy with his own hectic workload to provide you with set projects. The company is expansive, and I would recommend a full time – more... career there, where you have set priorities, but, I do not believe this is a place for interns. – less

If you ever have a problem.....
Transit Technician C (Former Employee), DFW Airport, TXJuly 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), KSJuly 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
