I was surprised to be faced with an attitude that work should eclipse all else in life. When on vacation I was expected to call in - leaving them my cell phone number was not enough.
Overhead was a contentious issue so we were expected to spend our own time working on things that would ordinarily be charged to overhead - like requests for proposals. Timecards I can see, but projects to bring in new work seem like something the company would want to support.
Given the chance to interact with the federal government
Principal Analyst, Export Compliance Officer (Former Employee) – Warner Robins, GA – October 22, 2017
Although I had been in the Export and Import industry for years my supervisor felt very threatened by his staff for any talent they possessed. So he and his management style painted the company in a very poor light. Before I was hired the company had been sold and management kept this information a secret from the employees which caused a poor work environment once discovered.

Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) – Panama City, FL – July 20, 2017
Was able to work hands on with the end user on everything that was designed for the project. Great people and great advancement opportunities. The hardest part of the job was choosing where to work all departments were great.
Senior Training Analyst (Former Employee) – Shrewsbury, NJ – May 9, 2017
Life at ARINC required 75% travel. I enjoyed my time at ARINC which allowed me to travel and meet people in ASIA and Europe. Management was supportive of new ideas and encouraged personnel to attend school. The hardest part of the job is the long extended stay away from home.
Working for ARINC positioned me to be able to gain additional experience working on aerospace equipment. The most exciting experience was sitting in the cockpit of an aircraft performing acceptance testing.
Avionics Technician (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – April 7, 2015
Typical day at work was showing up at 7am and working till 4pm. Management didn't hassle you or stand over your shoulder the whole time they let you work as long as you were working with little micromanagement unless you became a liability.
Good Pay, paid vacation
Unstable job environment, work was based on contracts and if no contracts then layoffs were inevitable.
Senior Program Manager (Former Employee) – Annapolis and International – January 22, 2015
ARINC was an 80 year old company full of very sharp folks who knew their jobs well. ARINC has deep roots in the community as a leader in philanthropic work and is a place one can expect the "way of the old school" of doing business though it is working towards a projectized and more efficient way of reaching margins.
Cafeteria onsite, located near everything in Annapolis.
Old way of doing business held back the company but now shifting towards more efficient methods.
Senior Flight Test Engineer (HH-60G) Helicopter (Current Employee) – Nellis AFB, NV – June 24, 2014
Typical day revolves around the maintenance workload and the flight schedule. Our primary goal at Arinc Flight Test is to provide an Airworthy aircraft to Air Force Combat Rescue crews. For the past 14 years I have traveled across the United States flight testing and accepting HH-60G helicopters from various locations. The experience we have is unmatched when it comes to HH-60 knowledge and flight sense.
