co-workers are a joy to work with
Lead Shipping/Receiving Inspector (Former Employee), Cahokia, ILFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: co-workers
Cons: work load and the time aloted to preform the task
The day starts with fedex and ups shippments arriving unlaoding then the process of opening the packages inspecting the materialsThen we do the computer process once that is completed those parts are staged and delivered through out the hangars.
This takes any where from 5 to 6 hours of standing in one place.

Generally enjoyable place to work
Sr. Electrical Engineer (Former Employee), Cahokia, ILFebruary 7, 2014
Work assignments set IAW aircraft delivery schedule. Quite flexible normally with sufficient time allowed for completion. Great team of coworkers. Unfortunately, management appears disconnected from the workers, which affects customer relations. Four day work week allows for plenty of time to address personal business.

Paint Shop Supervisor has Bipolar
Painter II (Former Employee), Cahokia, ILJanuary 6, 2014
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 – more... 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. – less

Inventory Clerk (Former Employee), Cahokia, ILNovember 25, 2013
Pros: great benifits
Cons: low pay
Jet Aviation is part of General Dynamics. The company overall is very stable but Jet aviation is subject to the waxes and wanes of a niche market.

Production Scheduler & Planner (Former Employee), Cahokia, ILOctober 21, 2013
Over the several years at Jet Aviation, great strides have been made in both facilities and personnel to improve the competitiveness of this tough market. Management turnover has been significant, so hopefully, better things are to come.

Fast paced and labor intensive but rewarding to see progress everyday.
Master painter (Current Employee), Cahokia, ILOctober 3, 2013
Pros: free lunches for being safe, family day
Cons: no air conditioning, rare pay increases
Many of my days are spent wearing personal protective equipment such as a sanding suit and fresh air supply hood while working from a ladder or scissor lift and sanding planes to prepare for painting. Other days are spent climbing all over the plane and masking it up to protect particular areas from paint. The people I work with have to be conscientious – more... of those around them and work as a team to achieve the primary goal for the day. I've been on the same shift for many years because I really enjoy the supervisor I work for and even though I may be super sweaty or sore by the end of the day, it's nice to be able to see the tangible evidence of all the hard work when a plane has a nicely finished paint job. – less

Good company
Project Manager (Current Employee), Buffalo, NYAugust 15, 2013
The company overall is a good company to work for. Like all places they have good and bad, but the good far outweighs the bad. In my position there is no typical day. The issues and things that come up change often and provide challenges day to day. I have learned a lot about several different things, from military contracts to shipping items overseas. – more... The hardest part of the job is dealing with people, items, planning issues, for aircraft halfway around the world. It can make the days very long due to the time difference. My coworkers are great and by far help make my job as smooth as it can be. – less

Technicien Aéronautique (Former Employee), Bâle - suisseSeptember 2, 2014
Pros: l'ambiance et la mentalité de la société et bien sur ces salaires.
Cons: le manque, d'échange, de savoir faire, de certain, ancien employé!
Les perspectives de Jetaviation ne sont plus à dénoncer, ils ont un outils professionnelle unique et de pointe.
Mon seul regret et que les anciens, sont parties parfois trop vite et sans donné tous leur savoir faire aux plus jeunes.
