Roll up your sleeves and get busy!
Airframe Mechanic (Former Employee), Lincoln, NEJuly 10, 2014
Pros: professional satisfaction, career advancement
Cons: low starting wage, heavy workload.
Duncan aviation is an excellent stepping stone for new A&P mechanics looking to cut their teeth in the aircraft maintenance industry. You will learn more at Duncan in the first few months then you would in years at other similar MROs. They will keep you busy!

Pay is super low but advancement is as quick as you can learn how to turn a wrench well. If – more... you display an ability to manage projects, you can expect to increase you wages by nearly half within the first two years. Advancement is not guaranteed, only earned there.

First class facilities with all the support that you need to accomplish your work objectives. Duncan management really does have their $hi# together. Very impressed with this aspect. – less

Best company I ever worked for.
Upholstery Specialist (Former Employee), Lincoln, NEDecember 27, 2013
Pros: great pay, nice people, and advancment opportunitys
Cons: i cant remember any
If I had a chance to re-join Duncan Aviation I would have no hesitation. The people that worked there were outstanding people that always had a smile and were all very nice. The pay was great and the work was always a learning curve for me since I had no exp. They started me in the maintenance dept. And after a year or two they promoted me to work on – more... aircraft in the interior completions/ upholstery dept. hardest part was learning all the obriviations that come with an aircraft.
Best part was the learning and excellent owners. – less

Productive and great work place
A&P Mechanic (Former Employee), Fort Indiantown Gap, PAOctober 18, 2013
Pros: getting to go on the road with the crew
It all depended what had to be done on the aircraft when it was in for maintenance. The greatest thing that I learned and certified was the build up of propeller for the fixed wing aircraft and how to split the hot section of a PT6 engine. Or management was great if you had a problem they were right on top of it for you and got you and answer as soon – more... as possible. My co-workers were great because there were only 3 of us for two fixed winged aircraft. There was really nothing hard about this job . The greatest thing was going flying with the crew after all the maintenance was done – less

Productive workplace with friendly co-workers and management
Facility Maintenance (Former Employee), Lincoln, NESeptember 4, 2013
On a daily basis, I was responsible for the general cleaning of the area known as "D-South." I learned how the management wanted cleaning handled, and how to clean around objects (in this case, airplanes) without damaging them. My co-workers and management were fantastic, they were willing to work with me for as long as was needed to get a firm grasp – more... of the job requirements. The hardest part of the job was maintaining the cleanliness of your area, and at the same time assisting with the cleaning of your co-worker's areas. Some areas required more cleaning than others, and often assistance was needed. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with co-workers while assisting in cleaning their or your area. It was easy to stay on task while socializing with a co-worker. – less

Project Manager (Former Employee), Lincoln, NEJune 5, 2013
Pros: working with owners/operators
Cons: very stressful work environment
Stressful daily work environment. Maintenance and repairs on exclusive machines was a plus. Dealing directly with aircraft owners/operators was a plus most of the time. Customer satisfaction and the end of the project was a bonus beyond expectations.

Lead Document Control Specialist Engineering (Current Employee), Battle Creek, MIMay 30, 2013
Pros: flexibility

Warehouse Tech (Former Employee), Battle Creek, MINovember 4, 2012
Pros: good coworkers
Cons: management in other departments were disrespectful to junior employees.
This job would be good for someone right out of high school that did not have any other training. With my credentials and back ground, this job was not stimulating enough and did not pay the amount of money that I was seeking for.

Scheduler (Current Employee), MichiganFebruary 19, 2012
Pros: sound business plan, ethical, great health and wellness.
This is by far, one of the best corporations I have had the privilege of working for. It instills a passionate pursuit of excellence in all of its employees, and this is reflected in the products and services it provides to its customers. They are innovators in efficiency and safety and continue to out perform the competition. They are industry leaders – more... in maintenance and refurbishment of corporate jets and successfully complete tasks that have never been performed in this industry. It is no wonder that OEM's and flight departments alike continue to look to this company for maintenance solutions. – less
