Terrible place to work
Test Technician (Former Employee), MichiganApril 18, 2014
Pros: none whatsoever.
Cons: low pay, stressfull, oblivious managment, high turnover, lack of equip.
Working 7 days a week, minimal pay, management has no clue about the testing industry. They make promises to customer engineers they can't keep. Understaffed and overworked. Most employees have little training, Testing is spotty at best. You have to twist an arm to get any new, or calibrated equipment. Very hard to do a job without the tools to do the job.

What a stress filled place to work. $0.30 raise every 2 years if your lucky.

As soon as they don't need you anymore that's it.

Long Term Temp
Hot Tester/Engine Tester (Current Employee), Buffalo, NYJuly 26, 2013
Pros: overtime
Cons: temp, one 20 min lunch throughout any 8-12 hour shift, no healthcare, no advancement
A typical day at work would start with a daily morning meeting with your entire shift consisting of the same things being said everyday supervisors showing favoritism to certain people then you hit the floor and test engines at your assigned cell/work area steady fast paced work 1 20 minute lunch at noon and thats it then none stop work till your shift ends. I learned alot about Engines and to quickly diagnose problems with electrical and mechanical p[roblems. Co Workers 90% of them are immature and dont take their job seriously supervisors do not care what is or inst your fault or out of your hands its a somebodys gonna be in trouble! the hardest part of the job is getting severe burns and permanent scars along with the heat and engine fumes. And for ME the most enjoyable part of the job was the ability to be able to work 7 days a week 12.50 an hour monday thru friday then saturdays time and a half and sundays double time and a half so if your about your money and need alot of it the opportunity to have large checks were there but this buisness is currently losing its production cutting employees and is on the verge of losing their contract with GM due to Lack or exp at every level Poor work ethics

Poor working environment
Executive VP Aerospace - Americas (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAOctober 12, 2012
Cons: poor salaries, no recognition, no team building abitities
Exova is a horrible place to work. The senior leadership (CEO and President) completely destroyed autonomy and any sense of value, accomplishment at the EVP and GM levels. It is not a company that helps their employees grow.

good employees on an inconsistant schedule
UT inspector - level II (Former Employee), Houston, TXMarch 10, 2012
Pros: the people and work conditions
Cons: inconsistant schedule and poor time management.
Overall I enjoyed my job and found it interesting and challenging. The only issue I had was with the schedule and the lack of any notice when the expected hours of our work week would change. Also, we would almost never know until the last minute if weekends would be required. All in all a good experience was had and valuable knowledge gained in the UT field.
