Terrible. Incompetent, unsupportive management that loves endless meetings that accomplish nothing. Not a single manager qualified to work in an engineering organization or aerospace.

It’s important to recharge so we are among a small group of companies that proudly offers three weeks of vacation for newly hired employees and up to five weeks of vacation for our employees who have a significantly lengthy tenure here. In addition, we provide six paid holidays per year, plus a winter shutdown in select facilities.

This is a great question. One of the fundamental things all candidates should know, prior to coming in for an interview, is the purpose of our business and the markets we serve. This general knowledge goes a long way when discussing the current opening with our hiring teams. And it certainly differentiates you from others that don't research this information prior to the interview.

For the Iowa regional sites (Decorah, Manchester, Bellevue), no change at all. The whole company knows how valuable these sites are and how their culture is really what makes them the best performers in the company. I don't see any change coming.

When hired on HR states you get unlimited sick, there is no number of set days. They say that when you are sick you should stay home and when you are not sick you are expected to be at work. Then after you are hired, management states that all sick time needs to be made up so that you average at least 40 hours per week. They are all about transfer rates, the higher the transfer rate the better for them. Management must be measured on this for bonus and raises. They would rather have a high transfer rate and burn you out, than keep you at the company.
