Quality Control Administrator (Current Employee) – Andalusia, AL – April 1, 2018
Work conditions were very good that included heating and air conditioning in all offices and hangars. All members of the management team were excellent in their ability and work ethics. Most co-workers worked as a team to get things done.
Component Technician (Current Employee) – Andalusia, AL – March 19, 2018
Been at Vector 15 years. Planned to work there until I decided to retire. There is a great possibility that my facility will be closing due to contract issues. This is the only reason I seek employment
the lack of work has caused alot of hourly employees to seek other employment. the lack of a sales team or something that has slipped through the crack and now the people in andalusia alabama are now at risk of loosing their jobs.
Buyer (Current Employee) – Alabama – March 2, 2018
Some of the management lacks people skills. The employees are a great asset. Management tends to show partiality. Raises are not sufficient. We are likely about to be laid off since the company was purchased by Standard Aero and the local management has been very up front with us about the situation and seems to be doing all that they can to prevent it. Upper management for Standard does not exactly seem to be concerned about us however.
Manager - Quality Assurance (Current Employee) – Andalusia, AL – February 23, 2018
Vector offered me a position knowing that another company was about to purchase them and I was in agreement with that. What I was not aware of was the short term of a contract that brought work into the company. That has since changed and now the new company is looking to close the facility unless they can arrange for additional work in a very short time.
Avionics Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Gosport, UK – February 14, 2017
A lot of promises during interview in future positions at the company and guidance in training and achieving the agreed goal. Management only support the engineers they like and others kind of excluded or getting less attractive jobs.
Old fashioned management where people management is something they dont know
variaty of work
Management is 'old' fashinoned English (not sharing knowledge as knowledge is power), lack of people skills
