work culture terrible, no possible room for advancement, pay terrible
Quality (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – July 20, 2017
I would not recommend commercialjet. the pay scale is terrible, you are underpaid for the role you have. you have no chance for advancement, no training culture no training provided and you are constantly screamed at and under camera surveillance from the time you walk in the door. if you have any morale when you start there it goes away quickly while working there.

Place is unbearable, favoritism everywhere. You are treated like a child and can not think for them selves. Micro management everywhere, you are told to shut up and do what your told. Many good people leave, environment is hostile unless you are pals with management. This place is depressing and it depletes the life out of you.

Come in get my assignment get my blueprint, grab the tools needed to complete that days task, and start working. as i work throughout the day I kept my work area clean and made sure my tools where put away when I was not using them.
Structural Technician (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – February 12, 2017
absolutely the worst place I have ever worked.management is a very low moral character they paint aircrafts in the hanger with other mechanics working no consideration for employees health and well-being.they are probably only 100 direct employees the rest being contractors with approximately 2,000 contractors in and out in three-plus years some contractors don't even stay a week!
A typical day working for Commercial Jet , we report to our Leads and are assigned a job to do for that day. Management is a huge part of the job that I do, because without proper instruction the Aircrafts would not be built or repaired properly. When our fellow mechanics have questions or in need of help I will do my best to help them. Our Managers Control the outcome of our job. They not only assign our duties, but also do our inspections and sign off on the work that we have done. Making sure that we have done our jobs correctly and within the regards. The Hardest part of my job would be having to figure out how to deal and working with people who do not take pride in the job that they do, therefore not performing there assignment to the best of their ability. On the other hand, the most enjoyable part of the job would be being able to learn things that I don't already have the knowledge of, and being able to look back on that work and see the progress that I've made.
being able to dress comfortable and enjoy the atmosphere
Communication within management, lack of hardware to complete jobs
No mgt support, tools,parts or hardware available.
Structure Tech/Sheet Metal Mechanic (Current Employee) – Dothan, AL – March 15, 2015
I love what I do but I seem to be spending too much time trying to get what I need to do my job with no support from mgt. The company seems to think they can continue to underpay locals as though we are locked in to only them.
Great work envirnoment with a lot of opportunities to learn
AMT I (Current Employee) – Dothan, AL – November 26, 2014
My day starts by meeting with my lead and receiving my assignements (what to check or repair on the plane) for the day. I perform the various duties set for me and my lead has to sign off on them. I submit the paper work and move on to the next task. The hardest part of my job is the weather, working out in hot and cold temperatures is something I will have to get use to but I am doing so. The most enjoyable part is working on the airplane, I am so glad I made the decision to quit my state job and go back to school, the risk was definitely worth the reward.
Couldn't say, I was not there long enough to have a apinion!
Aircraft Sheet Metal Mechanic (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – October 16, 2014
Received job assignment in the mornings. Proceeded to print out repair manuals to accompany the paper work. Worked on discrepancies per manuals and repaired. Went to call desk to acquire an inspector , to look and buy off work.
Clean floors and great pay, when on time.
Management has no patience, when it comes to mechanics with slow learning curves.
