    Pros

    The 4-10 hr workdays were nice. The benefits, especially the parental leave (excused time to take a child to the doctor) were great.

    Cons

    The company is susceptible to the cyclical aviation market. Although i was not laid off, it is very troubling to see friends and coworkers you work with every day out of work.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice for management. The companies products are constantly improved to offer some of the best planes out there and quality and attention to detail is a priority.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Cessna.

    Interview

    Started with online application, didn't hear back for over a month. Was asked to do a phone interview (about 30 minutes or less). The following week I was asked to schedule a Skype interview (I think the following week). 3 or 4 of the hirers and an HR exec interviewed me for about an hour. Received a phone call about a week and a half later
