Very demanding with very little recognition or merit increase
Inspection Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Gilbert, AZFebruary 15, 2019
Curtiss Wright was very understaffed which made the work load for all employees overwhelming at times. Month end hours were not ideal as it was expected to work 12 plus hours a day during the last week and consistently 6am to midnight on the last day. No potential for growth within the company.

Good Pay / Bad Management
CNC Machinist (Former Employee) –  Shelby, NCJanuary 24, 2019
The pay rate is very good for the area, however, the opportunities for advancement and enhancement are very limited (sort of a "buddy system" dictates the opportunities).
Lower level management is often unprepared for the leadership position they hold. Upper levels often seem directionless.
The work schedule is brutal - long hours with short periods of time off. Lots of mandatory overtime required with little to no notice given. The quality of life is severely impacted by this.

Overall, I would recommend it for the pay and benefits but would warn that those must be weighed against the quality of life desired.
Pros
Pay, Benefits
Cons
Short Breaks, Favoritism, Grueling Schedule

Employees were very helpful. The Supervisor was at times, but was being pushed to up quantity instead of quality.
Receving Quality Inspector (Former Employee) –  Gilbert, AZJanuary 23, 2019
Certain employees were great to work with. In comparison to other companies CW basically had there act together as far as computer programs etc.

You would see the junior supervisor maybe once a day at the morning crew meeting. This meeting was generally unproductive as it was a gripe session by the supervision because of the quantity first policy instead of a quality first policy.

The most difficult part of the job was trying to figure out what the junior supervisor was attempting to do. I think he was over worked by upper management.
Pros
Fair place to work.
Cons
People with physical issues were often over looked .

Management sucks, No advancement
Minion (Former Employee) –  Bethlehem, PAJanuary 19, 2019
Total joke! Managements clueless. Only care about their bonuses. NO ADVANCEMENT unless you have a degree or you're a "pet". They want you to bow down & praise them. Otherwise, you're a "Minion". All employees rat on each other as well. It's a glorified daycare here. Managers peek around desks/ pallets and watch everything. Only care about being lean & clean. Maybe they should listen to their employees & actually care. THIS PLACE SUCKS, STAY AWAY.

My experience at Curtiss-Wright
Quality Control Technician (Former Employee) –  Shelby Charter Township, MIJanuary 19, 2019
I learned a lot on the job and I grew with the company. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with coworkers all while doing the job the right way, the first time. On/Off feet walking around shop ensuring correct procedures are being followed, Work/meet with customers when they set out and meeting deadlines all made up the typical day.
Pros
On the job training
Cons
mental stress, scheduling demands

This company is stuck in the 70s
Project Scheduler and Budget Analyst (Current Employee) –  Cheswick, PAOctober 15, 2018
If you want to work for a company that expects you to work hard without any perks, than this is the place for you. As a new hire, I do not have a warm and fuzzy feeling about this place. I feel like they don’t want you to be innovative even though that’s what they preach. The process are stuck in the most manual way possible. They are a holding company that doesn’t really want to re-invest with themselves.
Pros
No over time
Cons
No room to grow, no working from home, no gym/“fun” benefits. And the cost for current benefits just went up
