Pros: there is alot to learn if given the opportunity.
Cons: pay, and hostile work envieronment.
My experience at Jet Aviation St. Louis was very poor. I was employed in the paint department as a level 2 painter, and after 18 months, I was "laid off" in October along with several other employees within the company. For the most part the job was working in a paint shop, so the normal dirty nasty environment is to be expected. Almost every operation that was completed required some sort of suit and safety gear. Which is great. Safety there is a number one priority. As far as the guys you work with, that all depends on you. Favoritism is a big part of what makes this paint shop function. So if you aren't good at sucking up, you probably won't last too long. In 18 months I watched a number of guys come to work, and a few months later they where gone. All for different reasons, but mostly they left because they felt they where not getting paid enough. If you are looking to work in Aviation in a paint department, I would not recommend Jet Aviation St Louis. However, I am not saying that Jet Aviation St Louis as a whole is a bad place to work. I have friends that work there in other departments and they love it. For some odd reason this paint shop just gets away with treating there employees like trash.
