Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Foley, AL – July 19, 2017
As a Quality inspector I would review defects ensuring the is and should be conditions are present, measuring discrepancies. I would also interview the people involved in the defect to determine the root cause and determine the best corrective action to prevent this issue from happening in the future.
Good mechanics, company promoted from within.
I was busy most of the time with little time to rest.

Good work environment ,horrible management. Treat contractors unfairly and lie to them a lot . Constant change and rules do not apply or everyone. Shipping & receiving department management is the worst and unprofessional
Aerospace Technician (Former Employee) – Lynnwood, WA – July 7, 2017
Never thought I would work in this type of field but it was one of the coolest and most fun experiences in my life. The company and people really took care of their employees and know how to throw end of the year parties. People were fare and management was amazingly friendly
Temp (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – July 2, 2017
Worked in CNC machining side of aluminum parts for airplane seats and then moved to assembly after machining got outsourced. Enjoyed placement to another area due to my work ethic for trying to keep me on as assembler.
Kept me employed as long as they could once converted positions were removed

Technician (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – June 28, 2017
Don't waste your time to apply here in Louisville. Management is horrible. Since UTC took over it's gotten worse and no one will do anything to help the culture. Lazy employees who only care about themselves and if they don't get their way they fuss and moan. Wanting to leave so bad

Great pay and great benefits. But they lay off too often. The insurance is good. Better than you can buy out side work on your on. Hope you like working working weekends they seem to work every weekend and most major holidays.
Welders in fire-x are sandbagging the time on the jobs. Fire-X is full of slackers.
Fire-X Welder / Process Technician (Former Employee) – Wilson, NC – June 11, 2017
Time studies are done on senior welders who have been slacking their whole careers. I welded on average 3 times the average while I was there. The other welders hated me for doing it. They said I was messing up the time studies and was gonna make the company expect more out of everyone else and wanted me to use up all the allotted time on the jobs. It was a constant hassle with the other slackers in there. The culture is to not do your best. A new metallurgist came in and weld tested before I hired in and only one welder who worked in the titanium room passed the class A aerospace tests. The other welders who were welding 4130 and nitronic 40 all failed their tests and were given their certs back even after failing the tests. They found out that the guy who had been testing the welders had not been testing them properly. Most of the welders in there cannot pass a class A aerospace test and at best are class B. The main reason for poor welding skills in my opinion is the cheap pay. They expect a welder to start around 20 bucks an hour.
