If you are looking for airline experience, this is it
Maintenance Service Representative (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 12, 2018
Typical start to the day is checking your work email. From there, managers will message you if you are behind on training. Training consists of Panasonic training and airline training. Lots of information to disseminate, almost to the point of overwhelming, at least for me.
Airport work is where it is fascinating. You will work with different airlines and see how they operate as well as witnessing firsthand life at an airport. Excellent place to network if you wish to go to the airlines. The work itself as an MSR can be either tedious or interesting or stressful. Management at my base was okay. They do listen if you have concerns or personal problems that may affect work. Graveyard shift is shorthanded constantly. If you are hired, most likely you will be placed at graveyard shift. No different from the airlines if you're a noobie.
Great benefits package with Panasonic. They do take care of you. 401k available. There is some room for advancement. Most MSRs become leads, Technical Service Reps, or can go to the corporate HQ in Lake Forest if you play your cards right.
Airline work isn't for everybody however, as I have discovered. If you like the work hours and fast paced work, apply at Panasonic. I hope this helps.
Excellent benefits, some room for advancement
Short breaks, busy on graveyard, sometimes stressful
