Composite Assembler (Former Employee), Wichita, Kansas – July 4, 2014
Pros: great people.
Cons: not well ventilated. lack of proper ppe.
Typical day at work started at 5am-345pm, Monday-Saturday. 1 hr lunches during the week. Work 8 hrs on Saturday with no lunch break on Saturday. Work environment isn't the greatest. The whole shop floor was a poorly ventilated sanding booth. Dust everywhere.
stay away unless you never want to move up and always have to watch your back.
mechanic (Former Employee), wichita kansas – June 14, 2014
Pros: no brainer work.
Cons: everything about this place is terrible except how easy it is
The people make this place terrible. You better keep your mouth shut. Dont trust anyone. No one values your work and unless you have been there 15 years no one cares or thinks you are worth a anything. Avoid like a disease. Unless you want to have your soul taken away.
Test Technician 1 (Current Employee), Phoenix, Az – June 13, 2014
Pros: pay and benefits
Cons: no explanation of how to properly set up benefits
On a day to day basis work is provided according to orders that need to be filled. Every day something new pops up such as new verification techniques, new product revisions, various documentation process, and updated testing processes. most of my co-workers are helpful, skilled, and energetic, but there are some co-worker that do not abide by the system – more... in place. the hardest part of my job is not being train properly in certain processes of testing, documentation, and ethics. the thing i enjoy the most is most of the work is designed to be done without direct supervision. – less

Interning here was the best part of my summer. The internship is more than your regular internship elsewhere. I learned so many aspects of the business during my time at UTC. I was involved in projects relating to finance, accounting as well as operations. My supervisor and my co-workers were extremely helpful and made sure that I would be successful – more... at my position. – less
Test Technician (Former Employee), Wilson, NC – February 8, 2014
Pros: interesting work and pleasant coworkers.
Cons: faulty equipment, poor management, no job security
I exceeded all expectations for the position and even went above and beyond my immediate responsibilities and found correctable problems with documentation, equipment, and processes but there was a "Don't make waves" attitude and no desire to correct problems or deficiencies, repair faulty equipment, or even adjust processes.
There was no feedback – more... from management for job performance unless supervisors were pinned down for it; when they were I was told that "After being there only seven weeks I was more proficient than some who had been there many years", but I was then let go and told not to return the very next week ! (No reason or explanation was given) Other workers there (even long time employees) stated that was typical behavior of the company, and moral suffered because of the lack of job security.
The working environment was pleasant, but keep looking while your there because you never know how long you'll be there; even if you're doing a good job. – less
