Avionics-Gyros (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – January 5, 2017
Sweat Shop all over. If it takes you five hours to do a unit, next they want it in 4.5 hours. Management was never happy. A lot of discontinuity in how they pay, review and treat you. By far the worst place I ever worked. Leaving was easy and made for a very happy time.
Lead Airframe Technician (Former Employee) – Battle Creek, MI – July 17, 2016
Their motto should be do more with much much less. Far from industry standard pay. Unrealistic out dates with no labor or space to make the out dates. The Project Manager is looking for that squawk (excuse) to extend the out date to save his a**. Average to sub standard performing 401k plan. The rare bonus you receive is a joke. If there are to many paid out in a row then they raise the goals. It's a great advanced A&P school if you have no experience but anyone working there more than 3-5 years is a fool. If you have experience don't waste your time.
You can screw up as many times as you want. Sloths can have a long career there.
Was a employee and family focused business, now it is just driven by profit
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – July 6, 2016
Was a employee/family and customer service focused business but has grown to the size that it is more focused on profit margin then providing the quality and customer service on which it's reputation was built. Most people work very hard and take pride in what they do but go unnoticed until something goes wrong. There are a lot of good people to work with and it is enjoyable since there is always new challenges.
I had 29 years with the company when it was decided that someone would do my job cheaper, no loyalty to me even after 29 years, sad really.
Northeast Regional Manager-sales (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – April 27, 2016
Overall I had a great career with this company until the money became the most important thing, not their customers. They ;et me go after 29 years dedicated service for someone who would do my job cheaper. My budget for 2015 was 51 million dollars, this is what I had to generate to remain employed. I did this but was let go for a less expensive alternative.
Parts Specialist (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – May 11, 2016
It is nor relevant what you know or what you do but who you are related to, and who you know. Jobs are given to relatives who have no skills or should not have gotten by the background checks, if you are good at your present position they are hesitant to advance you because they do not want to replace you.

Facilities maintenace lead tech (Former Employee) – facilities – October 17, 2015
They provide benefits from day one because they believe a healthy and happy employee is a good employee. We had to do stretches before each work shift. They provided uniforms and cold weather gear for people working outside. On holidays they provide the best meals.
all management including the owner would walk among the workers and have great conversations.
I wished they would provide us better snow removal equipment.
Aircraft Mechanics and Service Technician (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – August 30, 2015
They are great at helping new employees learn new challenges and train to accomplish new tasks. The pay is on the lower end of the scale considering the amount of stress and demands that day to day operations require
nice benifits, excellent family atmosphere, team members are willing to train new employees
The pay is on the lower end for the amount of stress the job can create, advancement is very slow

Upholstery Specialist (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – December 27, 2013
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 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.
Great pay, nice people, and advancment opportunitys
Scheduler (Current Employee) – Michigan – February 19, 2012
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 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.
sound business plan, ethical, great health and wellness.
A&P Mechanic (Former Employee) – Fort Indiantown Gap, PA – October 18, 2013
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 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
Lead Document Control Specialist Engineering (Current Employee) – Battle Creek, MI – May 30, 2013
I work with 29 wonderful Engineers. All different in personality and very caring individuals. I shuffle a lot of design data for the production shops and the FAA. This is the only place I have ever worked that Friday's are more hetic than Monday's.
I love the job I do, because I do it well and I love the people I work with, they make everyday a great day to come into work.
Airframe Mechanic (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – July 10, 2014
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 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.
