Low pay too many hours / great benefits
Line Service Technician - Fueler (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – January 30, 2019
Aviation is a fast paced business driven by the operational needs of the company. The working hours do not allow for a personal life outside of Signature and the pay for the amount of work required is substandard. A huge problem is turnover and understaffing to cover all the required shifts forcing lost days off with some employees working six days a week and extra hours. They do pay overtime for hourly employees which is a plus and they did adjust the salaries a year ago to make it a little more competitive but the job is demanding. Benefits are good with 10 vacation days and 10 sick days per year plus health, dental, vision, 401K, educational and a few freebies the company covers. Management team in place is really good and has no issues jumping in to ensure personnel get at least 1 day off each week, they seem to care about the welfare of employees and strive to ensure employees are treated fairly. If ever fully staffed this could be a great place to work but they never seem to get to that point due to the hours to keep the place running.
