BELL HELICOPTER - THE COMPANY

Founded in 1935 as Bell Aircraft Corporation, Bell continues to set the pace for the industry and expand the scope of vertical lift. Now an industry leader with unmatched name recognition, Bell Helicopter was the first to obtain certification for a commercial helicopter. Over its rich history, Bell has delivered more than 35,000 aircraft to our customers around the world.

These unique aircraft lift like a helicopter, then fly like an airplane with twice the speed, three times the payload and five times the range of traditional helicopters. Aerospace and aircraft will never be the same.

We maintain key logistics supply and service centers in Europe, Canada, and Singapore as well as in the United States.

    I worked at Bell Helicopter as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Absolutely loved the team I worked with and all of the employees I interacted with, was given real responsibilities, everyone truly valued intern feedback, many opportunities to work with management and interact with ELTs

    Cons

    Full time workers seemed to work way too much over time, interns in areas who weren't used to having interns had a much worse experience
