Aviation Training Instructor (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GAJune 2, 2018
Hours are average depending on the number of clients in-house per week. There is no room for advancement, instructors come here to retire and that usually doesn't happen till they are 75 to 80 years old.

Slow and low
Worker (Current Employee) –  GeorgiaMarch 18, 2018
Typical work day is paper work and taking care of issues that arise from customer request to simulator issues.

Management is more that happy to help. Always greets you with a smile.

Work culture is very clicky, much like high school.

The hardest part about the job is showing up with a smile knowing that my schooling is going to waste and I'm stagnating, as well as pay is very low.

The best part of the job is that everything is climate controlled and if you like airplanes and flying this is a fun job. There is technology everywhere so tech buffs will love all the different PC's and OS's.
Pros
Very relaxed environment, friendly, easy to learn, everyone is halpful.
Cons
Low pay, only one raise per year, technology is dated.

PC tech is a fast pacted strict environment.
PC Technician (Former Employee) –  Broken Arrow, OKMarch 5, 2018
For my personality the job was a bit stressful, I liked the job, and the people. The hardest part of the job was the enforced quota for HD tickets no matter the difficulty of the task. There seem to be many strict and misleading policies, unspoken wrongs/personal pet peeves.
I'm sure every department is different but there seemed to be a high level of stress with all the techs.

Training contract
Instructor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 24, 2018
There going to ask you to sign a training contract. Few if any reputable airlines ever require these types of employement schemes. They must be common for corporate aviation. Take your skills to the major airlines if you want a solid career.
Cons
Contract

Great place to work. Netjets scrpts sim sessions. NJA pilots are extremely sharp pilots with great skills.
CE560XL/XLS ground/ simulator instructor (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHFebruary 21, 2018
Flight Safety is a great complany to work for. The only reason I'm looking is to increase my pay and get a new type rating.
Netjets is our primary customer. They dictate what and how we train their pilots. They script each simulator session so it's pretty easy to run the sim. NJA pilots are extremely sharp at their flying skills and aircraft knowledge. They train under 121 though they fly under 91k and 135. It's very disciplined though not like ABX Air was or what a military boot camp would be. It's just fly by SOPs and use the correct callouts and flows. Normally, on a training day, the instructor briefs for 2 hours on various topics, then four hours in the simulator followed by one hour debrief.

We are losing instructors to corporate flying jobs. They give a two week notice but it takes 6 months of training before the new instructors can do anything. Consequently, the onboard instructors have to pick up the slack left by the departed instructors. 20 day work months are not unusual.
Pros
Donuts, fruit, working with experienced professional crews
Cons
Manpower is behind the power curve and can't catch up. Consequently, 20 work months are not unusual

Depends on you position...
Prefer not to say (Current Employee) –  Broken Arrow, OKFebruary 19, 2018
Although quick paced and demanding, it was a great place to work for a number of years. Lots of comaraderie and commitment to the mission. Changes in recent years have driven politics to an all time high and morale to an all time low. For a period of time the environment was downright toxic, although more recently there has been some improvement in that regard.
