Ground Support Equipment Service Technician (Former Employee) – Houston – July 18, 2017
If you're looking for a company that you can move up in, keep looking. Their managers are so dug into their ways, there is no room for you up there. As far as a mechanic's dream is concerned, you got it here. You find something wrong, 9/10 time you fix it no questions asked and you move on to the next one. No waiting for customers approval, you just work, but you better make sure you just work. They do not want to hear your ideas, your suggestions, your plans. If it isn't what they told you to do... don't go out of your way to assume it needs to be done. As long as you can go to work, do your job and go home, it's the easiest money you'll ever make
all the wrench turning your heart could ever desire
everyone willing to work together and get the job done
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – July 13, 2017
Been with the company going on 9 years. If you are willing to work hard and you know what you are doing it is a great place to work. Upper management is quick to respond back. The mechanics in place at this time are hard working and willing to work on days off if needed they are always there when you need them, good team in place at this time. From my past experience in reading the reviews I would take a guess the mechanics that wrote negative reviews were not real mechanics and did not have the skill level needed. The company offers to pay for your ASE tests & education reimbursement and if I had to guess the mechanics that wrote the negative reviews did not bother to take the company up on that offer because most likely they could not pass the tests.
When you need time off as long as everything is under control there is never an issue
Finding real technicians that can dianose problems, keeping good technicians which is getting better they increased wages
The job description is nothing like the real job. Poor training for the job. Trainer was more concerned about her cigarette breaks than training, not always available for questions. No feed back on how well you are doing at the job. Just call you into the office at the end of the day and say your not a good fit for the job and you have no idea why. Only employed for 15 days and then let go. Nice co-workers. Good hours.
Job description does not fit the real job and poor training.
Great company to work for. Regional staff is very responsive in the Ground support equipment field. When there are issues and problems that need to be solved. I am a current employ and I simply love what I do.
Diesel Mechanic (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 27, 2016
Worked for the company for a year...was told that if all the other mechanics like me I would be fine...pay wasn't all that great and the overtime was givin to favorites. .manager turned out to be dictator with everything. .. but the company values there employees.
Administrative Assistant/Clerk (Current Employee) – los angeles international airport – October 16, 2015
A typical day at work for me consists of checking emails, completing work orders, mailing off packages, answering heavy in and out-bound phone calls, assisting mechanics with whatever help is needed, adjust payroll, file paperwork, also approve, stamp, and mail off invoices.
I feel that i am a very important asset to this company, I am the main one in this office holding things together in the office.
Manager (Former Employee) – New York – April 26, 2015
Throughout my employment I have been treated like an outsider by my peers, with 1 exception. Perhaps this was because that I asked a lot of questions and received a lot of lip service and it never sat well with me. I was instructed to learn this business from the people who did all of the damage and in turn train them. In retrospect this made no sense. I was set up for failure from the start.
To discuss a plan with my supervisor a month prior and to have him denigrate me for it in front of my employees was really special. This might have been the highlight of my short career. Of course he didn’t feel the need to tell me up front that this plan was tried before and failed. Perhaps if I knew why it had failed before adjustments could have been made. And my supervisor didn’t think I needed to know any history of the previous failures. To me, it sounds like someone is hiding something. I can tell you this, there are a lot of secrets shared amongst a few. I also find it interesting how miserable the customers were when I arrived. That didn’t happen overnight either. One has to ask, where was the management oversight? Someone got a little unnerved when I asked that question. I was let go the next day.
This company preaches employees first, when the real truth is profits first. I reviewed 3 months of invoices due to a customer concern, and when I brought my findings forth, no one was interested in fixing the problem, only in what can be billed to the customers.
Stay away from this company. Its not worth the grief
service technician (Former Employee) – SDF – November 15, 2014
Work your self to death for next to no compensation, and get fired over an injury. It's no wonder there is a high turnover rate of employees. As the only, and likely the first ASE Certified Technician to become a part of Louisville's Global Aviation Service's team. I am appalled by the way they would treat a hard working albeit underplayed employee.
Best benefits I ever had and a friendly, ethical place to work
Clerk (Current Employee) – MSP – June 27, 2014
While the pay is mid-range the benefits are amazing. I have never paid so little for medical and dental in 30 years. The employees are fun, honest and dedicated. The upper management has an open door policy and is there when you need them. Anyone that trashes this company probably didn't do their job and has sour grapes. Too bad people only take time to write reviews when they are lousy employees.
Shop Supervisor MKE (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – June 27, 2014
I have worked for Gloabl Aviation Services for almost 4 Yrs. Within this Time I have learn alot about the Company. They have Many Great Benifits and Good Insurance. In this Fast Paced Industry we are always looking to be the Best Service Provider for our Customers. Working for Global, I have learned through the Years and Support from Upper Managment, how to Manage a Ground Level shop, and be successful. I enjoy being on the Airfield and working on the Different kinds of Equipment.
To be part of Global, It is a Culture...either YOU are or you are NOT, I found, I am!
Director of MAintenance (Current Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – June 27, 2014
Maintaining this equipment plays a large role in the performance of our customer's operations. The environment is often fast paced but at the end of the day it is nice to be able to sit back and see what we have been able to accomplish and to positively impact the operation around us. The equipment is interesting and neat to work on and really allows us to develop some cool skills as mechanics. Not sure where else you could learn some of this stuff.
Mechanic (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – June 25, 2014
First I would like to start off by saying that I enjoyed working for Global Aviation Services, but did not enjoy working for the supervisor. My only complaints that I have as far as the company is a lack of shop equipment to perform daily task. The pay is what it is and employees will always complain whether making $16 or $30 an hour. I cannot comment in regards of upper management because have had very little interaction with them, however I can state that this job is the only place I know where you can have a working supervisor that can not show up to work, be habitually late, and sit in the office the majority of the day and still have a job. The supervisor will belittle you to other employees and second guess your work.
What I learned from my tenure at Global is to always look at the reviews before taking a job, whether it is only 5 or 200 reviews.
GSE Mechanic Supervisor (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 9, 2014
Don't waste your time with this low paying and unorganized company. The management here is non existent, no support whatsoever from the national manager, no shop tools, no pay raises, just an overall bad company
