Wonderful place to work
Purchasing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCApril 28, 2017
Temco was an awesome place to work, Very professional and willing to help others. Management could have not been better. I worked through Express Personnel and it was a temp to perm position and unfortunately the Purchasing Dept had to cut back, and went to work at the Delta Terminal until assignment ended.

I would work for Temco Aviation again.
Pros
Great place to work

Contractor (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GANovember 9, 2016
TIMCO Aviation Services acted as a contracting agency with little interaction with the contractor. They were basically a conduit for new talent into the client's business.

Supply Technician (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCAugust 3, 2016
If you get a job offer just run away and dont waste you're time with this place. Management and coworkers will stab you in the back really quick.benefits are not great at all and pay is a joke as well. And if you're a veteran please stay away they treat us Veterans like scum when it comes to us getting help personally.
Pros
Free lunch box
Cons
Very terrible place to work to make a living.

A&P Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCJune 8, 2016
I was in aviation for approximately 17 years before I had the displeasure of working at TIMCO. Accepted the job because I had just moved to the area and needed to be employed. That's what you do when you have a family to support. Minimal training if that's what you call it before being thrown into the meat grinder. If you're not assigned a job, you don't get paid. You can walk to other crews and ask for work, but being new, good luck. If you're not being paid, you still can't leave or you'll be terminated. There's a few good people there, but you have to search for them. Typical good ol boys network. Management is a joke. Luckily I didn't suffer too long before finding other employment. Also if you're a new hire, forget day shift. You'll probably never see that. I worked 2nd shift and my weekend was Tuesday and Wednesday. Life pretty much sucked.
Pros
You're employed as opposed to unemployed
Cons
Everything. Name it, scream it, fear it

Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCMay 16, 2016
I was told my hours would be 700 to 330. I get there and they changed them to 9-530 for no reason. You work hard for no reason. Advancing is a joke. They will let you go for no reason. Mandatory 6 day work week even though they tell you it's only Monday through Friday. There is no training. You are literally thrown in and forced to survive. I can't stress enough that you need to move on. Not a good place to work.
Pros
As much overtime as you want
Cons
Management sucks. Training is a joke. Work atmosphere.

low pay
Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) –  Lake City, FLOctober 3, 2015
This was a fun place to work but unless you were in the electrical or avionics your pay was very little. It takes everyone within a company to get the job done.

Production Controller (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCMay 14, 2015
Working at Timco, Inc., was interesting because the work was steady. I learned so much about the inner part of aviation. Everything done to a plane had to do with a number system and that was interesting. The co-workers were O.K. but the job itself was great.
Pros
No supervisor at night.
Cons
short break

assembler (Former Employee) –  wallburg, ncMay 5, 2015
It sucked everytime parts didn't arrive on time, you was told to go back home the first minute you got there to work. So if you are looking for a full time position, look elsewhere.
Pros
work for the aviation industry
Cons
small benefits

Poor Management
Stress Engineer (Former Employee) –  Greensborugh North CarolinaDecember 28, 2014
Timco has the poorest management I have ever worked for.

A typical day at work was having two poorly skilled low level managers question and micromanage every task you did....

These mangers were trying to supervise structural analysis but they had no experience doing this work themselves. Their lack of knowledge about the subject caused many problems.
Pros
Little to none
Cons
Lots of micromanagement ....
