The facility I was at, the management was full of hot air. A lot of talk, but no real action was ever taken. Lots of finger pointing, and overall a very low moral in the facility. Which is really to bad because I enjoyed the customers, and my team that I worked with. It had the potential to be a great place to work.
Consultant - Mfg Engr/Planner - L85 Final Line (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – September 23, 2016
Bombardier was a great place to work except for the weather and inconsistent management. The project and work were interesting and challenging but management ego's and style were difficult to contend with. The employees were friendly, fun and dedicated to their jobs and quality. The employees pulled together as a team.
Business Analyst / Supervisor (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – August 18, 2016
Held many positions there during my 17 years. If it wasn't for a workforce reduction I would still be there. I enjoyed the people I worked with during this time. I was able to do many different things while employed there and continued my education.
Office Clerk/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – August 18, 2016
This place is very secluded. I felt safe when going to work, the people were all very kind. My normal work day consisted of being on a computer doing data entry and organizing documents alphabetically and making labels. The hardest part of the job was probably that i worked in an office alone for most of my day, i was an assistant so there were no other employees who i worked with.

Customer Service Manager, Vehicle Driver Trainer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 2, 2016
Intense but fun with different challenges every day. The hardest part was training, not everyone can be tough the same. Sometime the biggest challenges was trying to figure out how to get someone to under stand a concept. The good thing about working there, was the ability to work with other department during a train failure. That when it all come together.
Product Controller (Former Employee) – Despatch Dep`t within Supply Chain – July 29, 2016
In the despatch dept it takes quite a long time to learn all the tasks and different systems and variety of work The G.E. course was probably the most difficult with a difficult test at the end. When you get into it it was a very satisfaying job with good co-workers
The financial side of the company degrades the quality of work and quality of work environment.
Health, Safety, and Environmental Specialist (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – July 16, 2016
Employees are fearful of losing their jobs everyday based on poor management qualities and skill level. The local division of Lear Jet is only kept afloat by political decisions and not sound business acumen.
Procurement Improvement Analyst (Former Employee) – West Mifflin, PA – July 5, 2016
I learned a lot at this company and will be able to use it the rest of my life. I started in Bids and ended working with all the managers for the Pittsburgh APM team. The management was great at a local level, however higher up the management team was more of a internship where they didn't stay long and they normally were outside of their expertise. I enjoyed the diversity of people I worked with daily basis and the ability to experience and learn about other cultures. I worked with a great team of people who supported me in my role. My daily roles were working with my team from Brazil and Canada to help improve overall productivity of the SYS divisions team and to fix or answer any problems needed pertaining purchasing, strategic sourcing, bids, NPR purchasing, cashflow, critical payments, contracts, inter department issues, keeping the pipeline up to date by contacting individuals to get their news, etc.
Great benefits, pay, and culture
They keep adding to your job description, even if your unaware.
Crew Lead (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – June 29, 2016
A typical day at work is 12 hrs long on night shift. So it makes for long over night hours. Makes it difficult to get anything done on personal time. I have learned to communicate effectively and work as a team to get the job done. My direct management is great, couldnt ask for better leaders. The co-workers are great and very helpful. The hardest part of the job is the long over night hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with all the great co-workers and management.
