Environment, people and ability to work the shift you want. Always the cloud of being laidoff even if you work hard. Its hard to want to come to work

I worked for Hughes Helicopters, McDonnell Helicopters and on a McDonnell Douglas Contract during the transition to Boeing Helicopters. Yes, my experience is not to the latest programs; however, I am capable of learning new software programs.

Boeing forced me to leave. They made it very hard to stay and the environment was very harsh. The managers were rough and treated you terrible like you were useless. What a terrible place to work. The company is out for themselves not for the people that make them shine.

Report answer

I was given a layoff notification while out on company leave for Long Term Disability due to medical conditions. I had an injury which has currently prevented me from returning to full time work. I have steadily made continuous progress and am currently working toward an eventual successful return to employment. I am interested in working for a company that values people as their best asset. I found Boeing very rigid and negative towards me as a employee while rehabilitating due to an injury and an employee currently with a disability. I am firm in my belief I will be able to find a company that views me as an asset and accepts my disability with respect while treating me with dignity and as a valuable member of their team.
