This company is so disgusting to work for, uneducated and dishonest management. The Human Resources is non-functional at best unless, you are management. They pay below average and doctor numbers to show proof. This is one of the worst companies I have worked for in my life. The disorganization is ridiculous, the current management at IAH is overwhelmed and lack the knowledge needed to do their jobs. United Airlines needs to eliminate this company before JBT causes an issue that gives United an even worse reputation.
General Mechanic (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 11, 2019
Their airport contract is poorly managed, management has no idea who does the bulk of the work, they underbid the contract can barely afford parts could barely pay people on time every time the system went down they take forever to order the parts, poorly managed
MRT 1 (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 3, 2019
This company really doesn’t give you a chance for growth. I feel that management needs more training. We should get pay raises every 6months - 1year. They should even give us evaluations every year haven’t revived one in about 4 years of my 6 years being with the company.
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI 96817 – February 7, 2019
Many opportunities for growth. Learn new things everyday. Work as a team, Work environment is great, work together if you dont know something it is okay we learned things together and its a win win situation when working with fellow workers at the Oahu JBT services.
Senior Lead Technician (Former Employee) – California – January 27, 2019
Job was great. Problem is now management. There is no trust in management anymore. If only they would listen to the guys on the front line, they would find out the real truth about what goes on. I've had a manager who has consistently lied to staff on many subjects, he has pretended to care about contracts, but at my operation (which was small) he didnt have a badge for two years, .that's how much he cared. Upper management really need to see who they pick for site managers. In California there have been some very poor choices going on for the past 5 years.
Enjoyable work, varied, some great people to work with
Bad site managers, lots of hypocrisy, and favoritism
Work Order Coordinator (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 2, 2019
Depending on the position you get hired for will either help you with promoting or be at a stand still. If you get hired as a Jammer you will have the opportunity to promote. If you're hired as an office admin, promotions do not exist.
Crane Operator, Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – December 18, 2018
I use to love working there i want to work there again. The reason i havent worked there again is because they are rarely hiring. The people that work there already stay there permanently which i was trying to donthe same but i got laid-off.
Maintenance Technician MRT II- MIA (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – October 29, 2018
By nature the work environment is a fast paced always on culture. Between operation and proactive maintenance that is solely focused on customer satisfaction, JBT is company that excels in all facets of the luggage conveyor delivery system. Management is always creating an atmosphere of growth and providing opportunities to be an asset to other airport and terminal partners. The work personnel is a group of talented individuals always thinking of team first.
Salaried Professional (Former Employee) – Lakeland, FL – October 29, 2018
It used to be a great place to work...for the past 5 years it has gone down hill. Management has no training, growth is only attained by moving in the same circle as management. It's no longer about your knowledge or experience. Forget about job security, that is a thing of the past. Employees are on their own, HR is only present for their managers.. not the employees.
long hours, difficult to grow, fear, job insecurity, low morale
JBT Lakeland hasn't hit rock bottom yet but they are digging as fast as they can. In all my years I have never seen the attrition so high. Good people move on to better companies. If they don't move on JBT will get rid of them for dubious reasons. Seems to be trend that the older you are the more likely you are to bet let go. It doesn't matter how talented and hard working you are. Almost know one over the age of sixty is left. They think they are saving money but what they are doing is creating an environment of unhappy employees that is not sustainable and will ultimately cost much more. To make matters worse, the management team is never called to answer for attrition, low morale, questionable quality and the inherent losses of productivity. in the event that they might, they have a tried and true record of blaming the rank and file employees.
Sr Site Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 2, 2018
Fast growing company with very diversified portfolio PHL site under new contract with a large union workforce supporting a consortium of airlines in maintaining passenger boarding bridges and baggage handling systems 24/7.
Different challenges each day, Outstanding supervisory team, High (union driven) compensation results in very little, if any turnover, Seasoned, professional senior mechanics who take pride in their profession.
Work/life balance non-existent, Accountability within union environment extremely difficult, Ungrateful primary customer, who employs some directors/managers who are unprofessional and lack integrity, “Customer is always right" has its limits
IT Desktop Support Specialist/Temp (Former Employee) – Madera, CA – August 7, 2018
I really like the work condition at JBT, they treated employees fair and nice. The only reason I left JBT is that I completed my Temp. Contract. If I there's a open position, I would like to apply for it.
