Terrible company to work for.
Operations (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, TXJuly 8, 2018
I would only recommend working at Zodiac Aerospace if there were absolutely no other opportunities available. And, if one chooses to work there, always have a Plan B as it is a very unstable business. They treat their employees like a commodity, have little idea what their real mission is, engage in corporate politics at every level, and provide few if any opportunities for advancement. They have engaged in numerous layoffs over the last two years and appear to only know how to make a profit by slashing the payroll.
Pros
It's a job when nothing else is available.
Cons
Everything--unstable, few opportunities, corporate politics, etc. et. al.

not a bad company
CNC Fabricator and Specialist (Former Employee) –  Santa Maria, CAJuly 6, 2018
They don't pay you much but you can't help but feel like you're working as a cog in the bigger and better picture. The company seems to care how you are treated so a large extent.
Pros
lots of breaks, straight forward work.
Cons
Pay is pretty terrible, forcing you into OT

Purchasing Buyer (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, TX 76240July 5, 2018

Pros
Great Benefits

Inconsistent hours and heavy workload

Too many playtime
General Sealer (Former Employee) –  Huntington Beach, CAJune 22, 2018
Honestly, my outlook on this company. A lot of goofing around and complaining. Due to who’s better than who. The people there are just full of themselves. And they let sexual harassment play are part in professionalism.
Pros
Lots of parties
Cons
Bad attitudes

Management staff is 2nd rate,
Senior Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, TXJune 11, 2018
Management staff is highly political and self centered, silo mentality is rampant. The Peter principal is alive and well. Cooperation is the exception instead of the norm.

Fun place to work
Line Assembler (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, TXJune 4, 2018
A typical day was very busy. From the time you clocked in you worked until it was time for your break. I liked that because it makes the day go by fast when your working. I loved my management team. This was a warehouse setting job. The hardest part of this job for me was having to learn how to read blueprints then learn how to assemble parts together to make airplane seats. Learning how to work the line putting screws in the seats. The most enjoyable part of this job was once I learned what I needed to learn it was easy. The fun part was knowing I was making airplane seats for airplanes. It was also a fun working environment.
Pros
Getting paid every Friday. Volunteer overtime

No support from zodiac Europe. Profit was the bottom line.
Technician (Current Employee) –  Broussard, LAJune 1, 2018
Management is lacking. The most recent manager quit 2 weeks ago and no replacement has been named, and communication from the company is non-existent. Safety issues are forgotten if the fix costs money. We were promised a forklift months ago and the forklift company calls daily and receives no response. Training is lacking on every level with the management preferring OJT with a trainer, that is not certified and usually too busy to effectively train, or just nothing at all.Logistics is a nightmare with parts usually on back order for months at a time and this is usually never communicated with the customers. Customers are also routinely promised time tables that cannot be met because of logistical short coming with the company always blaming the facility for not making enough money to warrant the parts or tooling needed.
Pros
30 min lunch break, good benefits, good pay for the workload
Cons
no management or logistical support, lack of communication

Productive but haphazard workplace
Lead Stress Engineer (Current Employee) –  Huntington Beach, CAMay 29, 2018
Due to the function of the commercial aerospace environment, working at Zodiac Aerospace can be challenging. Also, not a lot of money is made with the custom-nature of all of the products, but it allows you to challenge yourself and deal with 'curveballs' so-to-speak on a daily basis, which makes one a better Engineer.

tl;dr: Stay on your toes and be organized, and you can be successful at Zodiac Aerospace.
Pros
flexible working hours, free reign to implement processes
Cons
poor compensation, processes not enforced
