The job is very easy. Due to mismanagement, no one has direction
Aircraft Technician/CNC Operator Team Lead (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – December 15, 2017
The place is the strangest I have every worked. Management changes every few weeks. No one has an established direction. They expect the company to run itself. I often wonder who is running the company. All executive management is cry about how bad things are but no one follows up on any direction. I do not know any first or second level manager with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Everyone was promoted off the floor with no training in a good old buddy format.
a typical work day is unorganized and they have multiple managers that are underqualified for the position and have very little knowledge of the jobs that their over. There is also a problem with managers abusing their power by getting employees that they dislike by getting fired or attacking their integrity as a worker to provoke them to leave or by make them angry. There is also problem with the management and the union working together against the employees. Also while I was there I witness bad parts being hidden because that individual was related to upper management and I will never recommend this company for anyone who wants a career. Spirit is for anyone who do not take their job seriously.

Healthcare benefits will include Doctors who work for Spirit in a Spirit owned medical building. This seems to apply to this site only. Other companies offering jobs on campus seem to have better benefits to offer.
Programmer Analyst III (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – November 26, 2017
I would have remained at this job until retirement if I had not been laid off. Great salary and flexibility in my area, but due to switching from in-house systems that we wrote and maintained for all areas (Finance, Personnel, Configuration, Inventory, etc.) to off-the-shelf systems, the majority of IT jobs were eliminated.
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – November 18, 2017
Largest corporation I have ever worked for. I was given very little training or guidance. And the team I was on , were all older employees. This was my 1st experience with working for 2 different bosses
Mechanic (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – November 15, 2017
nothing good to say, except i did have great manager, but all corporate red tap garbage everywhere you turn, if u do your job well as i did you will be stuck there for ever, AND thats not for me . I feel bad for everyone who is stuck working there , i am lucky i only worked there 6 months.
my job had me upside down all day with blood rushing to my head, very hard on the body, not worth it what so ever.
Informatica Developer (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – November 11, 2017
I enjoyed the challenges presented by working with the information technology and management teams at Spirit Aerosystems and had the opportunity to work with Airbus, Boeing, and Gulfstream bills of material.
Able to use my considerable bill of material skills.
The department I work in is relatively busy. The work is not hard, but I do work with several dangerous chemicals. Majority of the managers are not skilled. Its who you know and not what you know. I have a MA in Human Services/Executive Leadership, and 14 years of management experience can not get an entry level management position which only requires a high school diploma.
Costly but great health insurance, Money can be made with overtime offered
Slow or no promotion process, management with poor leadership skills, designated overtime requirements
Process Mechanic (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – November 6, 2017
A typical day at work was an 8 hour day with a break every 2 hours and 30 minitues for lunch nomally working a mid to fast pace. Management changes often but are normally helpfull. The hardest part of the day is walking into rework. The most enjoyable parts is seeing a finished product and the people that become more like family. Overall it is a great place to work.
seniority based, easy to change jobs. 2 wks paid christmas.
doesnt reward hard work, kinda like city work one guy works 2 guys watch the watcher gets paid more normally
