Great place and people
Technical Service Writer/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Moline, ILJuly 12, 2017
Busy administrative duties all day with constant interruptions keeping the work day fast-paced

I learned all I know about the aviation industry when I went in having no knowledge. I learned several different kinds of software in my time there.

Management changed frequently for several different reasons. My direct management changed several times due to a personal (husband/wife) situation

For the most part the work place was very friendly and easy going. There were stressful times, but when the company was smaller, it was like being with family at work.

The hardest part of the job was having several prioritized duties all at the same time, all being time sensitive

l loved that the job was fast-paced, and feeling appreciated for work done

Parts Distribution Specialist and Warranty (Former Employee) –  Eden Prairie, MNMarch 1, 2017
I enjoyed the work, working with the mechanic's. The difficult part was all the different hats you have to ware working at (FCM - Flying Cloud Airport). While Moline is the corporate location, FCM is a satellite location so we do more with less (People). The morale overall is OK, there are good days and bad days.

Scheduler
Technical Scheduler (Former Employee) –  Moline, ILJune 10, 2016
Morning meeting with department managers, taking notes during the meeting of updates performed to aircraft. continue to receive updates on aircraft and sending out a daily report on these updates for departments. I learned how to maintain a schedule for department heads. Management was flexible and supportive, co-workers were supportive. The hardest part of the job was learning the scheduling program. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the administrators and keeping track of work performed on aircraft.

Below Average
AMT (Former Employee) –  Moline, ILMay 13, 2015
I worked for this company for several years. The leadership has very high turnover. The mechanics are great but the leads cut corners and are deceitful. Planes were being damaged at least once a week and the damage was often covered up and charged to the customer as a discrepancy.

Excellent Departmental Staff
Director of Parts and Component Services (Former Employee) –  Milan, ILMarch 10, 2015
Excellent departmental staff. This job required extreme attention to detail while being diligent through the prioritization process. Directed a staff that included, 1 manager, 3 supervisors and a dedicated staff of 20. Managed annual budget for 3 departments, reviewed their P & L monthly statements to ensure correctness and that budget goals were being obtained. Departmental responsibilities included warehouse management, shipping/receiving processes, maintenance and overhaul facility and procurement staff. Elliott Aviation was overall a very good employer until their recent senior staff gained control and at that point I found little support which was a distinct contrast from their past senior members.

High pressure aircraft maintenance operation.
Rotables Manager (Former Employee) –  Moline, ILMarch 17, 2014
A very clean and high tech facility. Unfortunately they have a high rate of turnover due to micromanagement by an ever revolving door of upper level management and executive level management.
Pros
Great hard work staff in maintenence and product support
Cons
Poor corporate culture and an over abundence of micro management.
