Setting appointments for fundraising. Mostly for schools.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Covington, KY – March 11, 2016
Typical day at this job was answering and taking messages. Also, setting appointments to meet with school organizations to plan fundraisers for the school. I learned to keep making calls. The more calls and setting up appointments with the schools the better chances of getting their business. The hardest part of this job was peak season in the Fall and Spring of the year very hectic in keeping product in stock. The most enjoyable part was seeing the different organizations doing a fundraiser had met their goal.
-perform 2-4 work package maintenance actions on 757 or 767 -learned to seriously coordinate maintenance requirements with other departments to maintain the desired MRO schedule for the customer -Management was very concerned with safety at all times and not just production at all costs -Extremely varied backgrounds and cultures made for a very interesting and educational work environment -Hardest part, finding a parking place if you're running late -Most enjoyable, seeing the aircraft we just completed heavy maintenance on rotate and climb out on its check flight
Easy going workplace that relied heavily on teamwork
Production Controller (Current Employee) – Lake City, FL – March 5, 2015
A typical day would consist with me coming in, getting a brief review of the events of the day. Then I'd go hangar to hangar closing task cards and assisting mechanics as needed. I sharpened my skills with computer programs and customer care. The management was very understanding and considerate with scheduling, time off, and integrating schooling. The hardest part of the job is dealing with coworkers who simply do not want to cooperate and be a team player. The most enjoyable part of the job is the independence I receive. I make leadership decisions, and am free to prioritize my tasks how I feel fit.
independence, multiple breaks, fascinating line of work
giant puddles when it rains, constant cold/hot offices
great place for income but never no time for family
Solo/ local owner operator driver (Former Employee) – Lake Elsinore, CA – May 4, 2015
Being an owner operator, this company was great for the income. But when you asked for home time to be around family, the often denied you for that. I asked for local work as well instead of all California but was also turned down as well because of seniority.
Aircraft Maintenance Planner (Former Employee) – Erlanger, Ky – July 1, 2015
I was hired and shortly after that the company moved its headquarter and filed bankrupcy seemed a little fishy. The folks I worked with where good people just trying to provide a good service for the company that had just started service in this location.
Aircraft Mechanic (Current Employee) – usa – April 20, 2015
An Terrible place to work and very disappointing.
The hourly wage is terrible and appalling for this industry standard. You have to work over 40hrs before you can get overtime.
Fulltime and I struggled to make 40hrs some weeks ?
You are promised courses that never materialize. This was just the tip of the Iceberg.
Not a set schedule for your weekly roster which was produced every week leaving you no time to plan for your life, especially if you have a family. The supervisor does not know what he was doing when producing this, it is awful. I have never come across anything like this in my life.
My experience of my co-workers is unbelievable in that very few have any experience at all but yet they are all experts?. How they gained there A&P I don't know and they are dangerous to work with. You end up baby sitting these people and doing there job putting to much pressure on you as an individual.
No access to Aircraft Maintenance Manuals as the Company has not paid for the License to Airbus and the management have been told and done nothing now for months.
The company equipment is a joke and in a terrible state. A real struggle to complete your duties safely and everything done on the cheap with no health and safety. You have to beg and borrow equipment from other company's just to do you job on the aircraft.
If you are good at your job you end up becoming stressed and under pressure due low wage, lack of equipment, bad staff & working with poor management. I cannot not believe how unprofessional the whole outfit is and its getting worse.
