Quality Control Engineer I (Former Employee) – Santa Clairita – January 29, 2014
A typical day started at 5am and ended at 4pm. The overtime was great! Through out the day I was studying drawings and documents to see if they conformed to specs. I got to interact with many different departments in gathering the information I needed to accomplish my tasks. My co-workers were very personable and informative. The hardest part of the job at times was trying to locate the necessary information needed to "get the whole picture'. The most enjoyable was completing a package and handing it off for the next stage of development. Management was very supportive and encouraging. Working at Woodward was a wonderful experience and opportunity.
The flexible hours put me in a lighter traffic going home, a real plus!
In house security that i liked. Aerospace industry both private & Gov.
Security Officer (Full-time) (Former Employee) – Santa Clarita, CA – March 1, 2017
Was a full time in house security officer, i really enjoyed my job, and most of the people i worked with. I picked up on training quickly an was often able to do things that nobody else could do, didn't, or just did not want to do. There were about 8 or so full timers & about 6 part timers, an i was considered number 3 in the full timers that were any good. I was not afraid to speak my mind or call it as it was, even in face to face conversations with my boss. I was also told that i had advanced quicker that anybody else in security dept. from going part time as all are hired to full time. The only reason i am not still there is the entire in house security dept. was laid off with no advance notice as company went with outside contractors.
Lots of exercise, great learning experience
Some of my coworkers & meeting that had nothing to so with security

Mechanical Designer (Former Employee) – Valencia, CA – November 21, 2015
I am pleased to have been a part of this company for the past ten years. This company is filled with smart, hard-working people who communicate well and are willing to reach out to one another to get the job done. The facility is clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The management is supportive and motivating. I was always happy with my salary and benefits. My only gripe is that there can be a bit too much red tape which can slow forward progress. Overall, this is the best place I have ever worked.
Good people, good working environment, good benefits.
Typical amount of red tape for a company of this size.
Customer Account Representative (Current Employee) – Valencia, CA – February 25, 2013
A typical day at work would include providing status on orders, preparing reports for upper level management, negotiating with customers, reviewing POs, and entering orders. I have learned how to hone in my negotiating skills as well as how to develop stellar relationships with customers. The hardest part of the job is not always having the support or communication, between departments, that is necessary. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people and the hours.
Great work environment lots of learning. Picnics and BBQ'S were lots of fun
