Line Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 11, 2018
Worked the line for a few months I felt they don't focus much on training so you pretty much gotta figure it out on your own. Previously worked for 3 years at a top fob and this company lacks customer service badly ! They also have horrible communication. Other than that line guys are amazing. Also you get paid to work 8 hours straight, so you don't get a normal break like every other job. The only break is to sit down and eat your lunch because the consider the down time between planes is included as a rest period. I thought that was so wrong !
Pros
ok tips
Cons
No breaks !

IT Solutions Analyst - RPG programmer (Former Employee) –  Cahokia, IllinoisMarch 8, 2018
My immediate co-worker were great, my local management was okay but upper level management was terrible. Very poor decision making so bad that the entity that I supported is no longer in existence!

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Bedford, MAJanuary 31, 2018
the managers did not put enough people on to properly cover the busy desk. the phone was constantly ringing and people were always at the front desk. i felt it was very rude to be that way to the customers.

Sr Dsgn Eng - Bombardier Global XRS/G5000 (Former Employee) –  Cahokia, ILJanuary 30, 2018
The company located in STL as it was/is in a closing state. What will be left will be a shadow of its former self. I loved working with a ton of individuals that have since picked up and moved on.
Pros
Great People with a lot of heart in STL. hope most of them get carried over to Gulfstream.
Cons
Became very political in the last 6 years or so. In a bad way.

GV Line captain - International Part 91 (Current Employee) –  Teterboro, NJJanuary 25, 2018
Little interaction with senior management. We had a unique account within the organization, primarily 91/135 charters. Overall, it is a good place to work.

Director of FBO Services (Current Employee) –  United StatesJanuary 18, 2018
Jet Aviation is owned by General Dynamics which means the FBO will have some challenges that other FBO's do not have to deal with. Does come with great benefits.

Contract Sr. Technical Writer (Former Employee) –  Cahokia, ILJanuary 14, 2018
When I was at Jet Aviation, the company was trying to create a technical writing department. The y enlisted the support of a group of contractors (myself excluded) that all knew each other and usually traveled from company to company. There was no style guide to write documentation until I created one.
Pros
none
Cons
none

Worst company ever
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Bedford, MAJanuary 10, 2018
Very backwards and hostile work environment. They force women to wear make up like the 1950s. Women are not allowed to have roots showing but they don’t pay enough to get your hair done on a regular basis. someone watched too much old tv and has no concept of reality. No advancement for women unless you sell out the rest and force us to wear makeup. Bad culture and bad agendas pushed from people who have no idea what America is like. You work bad hours and Christmas too!!
Pros
Travel to 1950 without time machine
Cons
Forced to wear makeup, no high jobs for women, bad schedule, not rewarding

Great Place to work
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 2, 2018
I work there a couple months in the summer. Although the job can be stressful at times, its not completely horrible.People definitely make up for the job. Sometimes there drama, but its easy to ignore. Not a bad job. Nights shift is better than the morning shift. Get schedules a month in advance.

Flammability Upholstery Clerk (Former Employee) –  Cahokia, ILDecember 22, 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job was the mobility you had in the facility. Working on the production side you was never tied to one location. Also had areas to get in some walking exercise.

Lead Captain for a FAR Part (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 6, 2017
Nice place to work for. Compensation needs to be more consistent with Industry Standard. Management personnel are concerned about the well being of the pilots and are willing to stand behind them.

Miss guided leadership.
Upholstery Technician (Current Employee) –  Cahokia, ILAugust 22, 2017
The leadership team seemed to be encouraged to treat employees with an iron fist. All those who were fair to the employees ended up getting let go for some reason. Lots of favoritism and none of the upper management was ever held responsible for bad actions against the employee.
Pros
Great work force. Super high quality work was put out here.
Cons
Lots of passing the buck.

CSR - Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Bedford, MAAugust 14, 2017
Do yourself a favor and don't bother. Short term job prospect that loves to burn out all employees. Not worth your time. Save yourself the headache and apply somewhere else where people are a bigger priority.
Cons
Everything

Engineering Lead (Current Employee) –  Cahokia, ILAugust 10, 2017
Awesome quality, but processes do not exist. It does not really matter though, Gulfstream is taking over the facility so everyone here is out. Tough times here right now but a lot of very talented people will be going other places.
