Wire Harness Assembler in IPB2

Spirit is a great place to work. The benefits far outweigh what you can expect to see while working there. You will encounter bad management at times. Some employees are lazy mixed in with bad gossip. All you have to do is show up do your job and you will stand out. It really is that simple.

The main reason I have stayed at spirit so long is for the benefits package. Once the company takes away the IAM benefit package and lowers the quality of it, I will leave. The pay is severely lacking in comparison to most other places in aircraft, but the benefits keep most there. Advancement is a pretty strict "who you know" type deal. The other option is to be 'morally flexible'. If you cannot be one of those, advancement is not very likely. They offer the option of doing your job well & in turn being given others jobs too! Without the pay or appreciation of course. As an inspector of you do your job well, you in turn will be harassed and moved around. The management in the quality branch is very much a part of the good ole boys network. Either you're born into it, or you blow into it. HR is not any better than any other company. They will sweep things under the rug and take months to address things. They claim to have a no retaliation policy, but good luck on that.

Worked there for seven years. I was given a medical lay-off three years after my carpal tunnel surgery due to them "not being able to find work for me to fit my restrictions" even though they had no issues for those three years to fit said restrictions, but that's beside the point. Thanks to the Union, you will get great medical, vision, and dental benefit options along with two weeks of paid vacation and one week of sick time, after one year. The work culture out there is massively toxic. Your co-workers and (most) management will make you feel guilty about taking anytime off, scheduled or not, and you will be sometimes punished for being sick by coming back to 2-3 days worth your work being piled up and having to work overtime just to complete it along with that day's workload, all while being told you're a piece of excrement for taking the time off in the first place...

Pay was goodEmployees were friendly and chill people and the work was not physically demanding. Clean work environment. Bosses were cool. Not so uptight.

Management is in a constant state of stagnation. Focused on production numbers rather than training and total completion of work. If culture changes to support the process with knowledgeable management willing to stand behind their employees, a lot will come of it.
