Good luck Randal Brooks
Lead Technician (Former Employee) –  Englewood, COSeptember 30, 2016
Looking for heavy hitters. No walls up around this place. Need 5 degrees just to be a supervisor. Good luck getting a mechanic to do planning for you.
Pros
Got to laugh at an idiot every day
Cons
Had to try and not laugh at the idiot all day

Dont work for this company(unless your a lawyer)
Maintenance Controller (Former Employee) –  VerginiaSeptember 21, 2016
Terrible place to work. They don't pay until they owe you lots of money and then say you stole somethings so you end up spending more on attorney fees or walk away. The director of maintenance previously in Phoenix is selling all Tempus engine tooling trying to make some of his losses back. Lots of other employees are doing the same. Bottom line DONT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY!
Pros
None
Cons
All management will lie without hesitation

Support Staff (Current Employee) –  DenverJuly 31, 2015
The CEO Jack Gulbin has a hard time making a decision beyond going to the bathroom. The organization can't seem to get out of its own way. They talk about building a great company culture, but frankly McDonalds has a better culture than they do. And in reality, cost-cutting is where they're at.
If you're looking for a future in aviation, this is definitely not the place.
Pros
Being around great aircraft
Cons
Leadership

Presented as a family place but NOT
Maintenance service manager (Former Employee) –  EnglewoodJanuary 7, 2015
Tempus is a fake company that will do anything to make them look good to their customers. They treat their people like slaves and underpay at every level except high management. If you can't work their system you will eventually be the cause of the system that will never work. Stay away unless you want a 1 year job.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
You will work tons of overtime without pay

Outstanding company
Lead, QC Inspector, Avionics Technician (Current Employee) –  Newport News, VAMarch 28, 2014
I was an avionics tech, A&P, inspector, lead.. I started with Tempus when they won an overseas contract. I found them to be outstanding. This company allowed a person to climb as high as their ambition and talent would allow. There will always be those who will complain but when they look around at other companies and themselves they will see the truth. The owner who is a self made man is in my book both a good leader and down to earth guy who is equaled to Ross Perot in business theory and sense. Look up Ross Perot. I left the company to pursue a different direction and I will always feel Tempus Jets was a highlight in my career.
Pros
professional atmostphire, family feeling and state of the art company
Cons
downsized the company

No ethics / no values / no organization / no respect
Employee (Former Employee) –  Newport News, VAJuly 6, 2013
Not a place of work I would recommend. I'm very thankfull I no longer work for these people and that they made my decision to leave easy.

Truly a bottom tier place to work. The treatment of the employees prompts anyone who can leave to do just that. The remainder are those who unfortunately don't have as many alternatives.
Pros
Entertaining
Cons
Chaos

Great company to work for
Operations (Former Employee) –  Newport NewsJune 17, 2013
I was an employee at Tempus Jets and sincerely enjoyed the atmosphere. It was unfortunate that there was a lot of gossip spread about the company, specifically the owners. I heard the rumors that have been mentioned in comments below directly and decided to look into them for myself and found them all to be 100% FALSE. Don't believe everything you read. This was a really fun company to work for and I hope, if I have the chance to relocate, that I can be part of this team again.
Pros
Exciting Atmosphere
Cons
Employee gossip - fortunately, those employees are no longer with the company

Tempus is the bottom of the barrell
operations (Former Employee) –  variousJune 12, 2013
One of the owners is not only pyschotic but is a skirt chaser. He yells at everyone and he has no repect for anyone except the young women he hires. There was no job security there because if you make him mad, he fires you. Stay away from that place
Pros
pay and benefits
Cons
the owner

Exciting work environment with GREAT opportunities
Accounting (Current Employee) –  Newport News, VAMarch 29, 2013
Tempus Jets is a very exciting place to work. Management shows interest in each employee and offers exciting opportunities based on each individual's personal strengths. The CEO has a heart for the world and pursues opportunities to use the company he has built to help around the globe. The environment is fast paced and rewarding.
Management is flexible with your schedule and shows interest in a work/ personal life balance.
Pros
great team/ benefits/ opportunities

Unprofessional, Unorganized and Poorly Managed
Accountant (Former Employee) –  Newport NewsJanuary 3, 2013
The review summary says it all. This is an unorganized sham of a company. The CEO is incapable of running a company and the upper management are collecting a paycheck for doing nothing. I can't imagine that, even though they are relocating to South Carolina, the company will be in business for another year.
Cons
too many to mention

Marketing (Current Employee) –  South CarolinaDecember 17, 2012
Tempus Jets is an elite "all things aviation" international company.
The new ideas, new technology, passion for philanthropy, and dedication to exceptional customer service. One of the very few companies that offer 100% medical benefits, life insurance, and disability. Wonderful company to grow a fruitful career in aviation, sales, marketing, and technology.
This company has high expectations for its employees and that reflects on the company themselves. Tempus Jets is very self -aware and knows that they are only as good as the people they have working for them.

Horrible Atmosphere
Operations (Former Employee) –  VAAugust 31, 2012
This organization is poison. It is best described as "Chaos" creating an incredibly bad working atmosphere. Workers are overstressed, stabbed in the back and thrown away....unless you are someone's child or old friend. Many good folks have come through and were spit out in the regular unprofessional way this firm carries itself. These issues are from the top down. Ethics and decency are not words any current or ex employee would use to describe the leadership team.
Pros
they paid above market value
Cons
chaotic and disorganized workplace

Poorly Managed
Operations (Current Employee) –  Newport News, VAJuly 25, 2012
The company grew too quickly and the CEO of the company has absolutely no idea what is he is doing.. Unfortunately, the people working under of him have even less of an idea. He hires friends and children of upper management and well connected Newport News City Council members. There is no job security and rumour has it that they are getting ready to close up and move what's left of the company to Greenville, SC. The so called VP of Government Contracts is unprofessional and a habitual liar. Can't say anything positive about this place except that it is paying my bills until I can find a real job.
Pros
decent benefits
Cons
incompetent management

Not good
Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Newport News, VAJune 1, 2012
100% benefits and 401k matching is nice. Advertising shows the company doing humanitarian work, but helping others doesn't seem like a priority. Job security and advancement is dismal, based on contracts and who you know. Supervisory and management is horrible, management from the top-down are all micro managers. Having new hires "figure it out" seems like a company wide culture. Most people at the company have work e-mail on their phones, so they don't disconnect.
Pros
benefits
Cons
company culture
