Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Plattsburgh, NYOctober 29, 2014
went to work and had to follow a schedule to keep minor parts out to main line and be able to ship trains on time. I was team lead for some time and made sure not only my work was complete, but my fellow workers also

Great people but poor leadership in BFTC
Worked in BFTC (Former Employee) –  Wichita KansasOctober 27, 2014
I worked in the Bombardier Flight Test Center and found the people were awesome to work with. The leadership was more concerned about their personal advancement and egos and less about building a team.

Enjoy supporting directly on the aircraft.
Engineer Specialist (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSOctober 13, 2014
As a member of the Final Line Engineering Team, I was able to aid in supporting functional testing on the aircraft and troubleshoot issues with various Aircraft Systems because of my extensive background with Avionics. My background afforded me the opportunity to even support non-avionics systems. It was a great team atmosphere where as a team we solved the issues at hand.
Pros
team environment
Cons
the program slowed to a slow pace

Awesome place to work!
Flight test technical coordinator (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSOctober 3, 2014
Nice people creating hospitable work environment. Management bent over backwards to accommodate employees having issues(family deaths, sick children, e.t.c). The flight test organization seemed to be flattened out so everyone worked side by side from upper management on down.
Pros
work life balance
Cons
schedule interruption causing layoffs

Very productive Company and great for Interns to learn technical attributes.
Instrumentation Tech- Summer Intern 2014 (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSAugust 30, 2014
Was a summer intern for bombardier and loved every minute of it. Typical day at work as a summer intern involved calibrating testing equipment used by Flight line Techs. Also assist Engineers with experiments they are conducting. Troubleshoot Electronic systems involved in instrumentation and data systems. Learned very valuable skills like troubleshooting and creating cable assemblies. Also learned how to solder very precise assemblies and circuits. No hard part to the job very fun company to intern with. Management was really lenient and respected its workers at least Interns.
Pros
relaxed workplace, competitive intern pay.
Cons
furloughs due to delays in new aircraft design.

Very un structure services and Human Resources Department
Manager of Mechanical Operations (Former Employee) –  OrlandoAugust 7, 2014
There are many reasons for not taking a job as a manager or supervisor inside Bombardier Services, one important is the lack of knowledge of the Rail Operations and Regulatory Compliance, the "upper management" doesn't care about their teams, and the manager average years in Bombardier North America wont pass 2 years, Human Resources doesn't have the expertise to operate or maintain a safe work environment, In Orlando there are many violations on daily basis.
Do not work for this company as a manager
Pros
no pros
Cons
managers are not treaty with respect

Good paying job with nice benefits, hours are long but days get broken up for your mandatory rest time
Conductor or Assistant Conductor (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJuly 22, 2014
Overall, long days but you have weekends off; pay is very good for not working too hard. Would be a much better place to be if they got rid of some of the people there whose attitudes make it a place you don't want to work. It doesn't help that management isn't leading folks like they should, almost like they're learning on the fly. In particular the current Superintendent.
Pros
pay, breaks/rest time during the day, weekends off, benefits
Cons
long days, early mornings, the co-workers being cuttthroat and selfish, management don't know how to properly lead people of diverse backgrounds
