Great stepping stone and introduction into some of aerospace careers.
Installer/Technician (Current Employee) – Wichita, KS – August 2, 2018
Having no prior aerospace experience before and only retail, gas station, fast food; this job was a huge stepping stone and I'm honestly glad I was given the opportunity. The workplace is clean and a little overwhelming if not used to industrial environments. Management is interesting, our site manager micro-manages but knows little of what really goes on. As for operations manager she is often talked badly of but truly is an impressive manager seeing what all she manages and knows, unfortunately not many see this as not everyone is management driven. However on the topic it does feel as if career advancement is very hard to come by and when it does odds are in seniority not potential. Possibly due to the lack to recognize and train/guide those that show a potential or willingness to advance into leadership positions. The overall work is easy once you learn to read blueprints and becomes repetitive and boring after while. Most stimulating thing for the mind while working is listening to some coworkers talk about others or listening to someone's podcast from their speaker. Overall it's been the best job I have ever had and plan to stay for awhile and try to advance into what I feel is a more appropriate position and hopefully be of more use as it has been good to me. The company does a good job of trying to empower TM's that being said there are teams that get work done but generally don't work as a team.
Potential to Travel, Appropriate Pay, Good benefits, Set schedule and consistent hours, Overall Good environment.
Breaks are a tad bit short for smokers, lack of training for new hires.
